Resolutions one month on

Happy February 1st! How has your January been? It can be such a long month, many of us get paid before Christmas and are desperate for the pay packet to arrive, its dreary weather and if you're like me it's dark when you leave home in the morning and dark when you get home at night.

January is also a time people make their resolutions or goals for the year. Did you set any? Many it is to lose weight, join the gym etc. I often used to set myself five or six goals but this year just 2 that are important to me:

1) Sleep for more than 4 hours a night,
2) Consume less

You can read all about it here

So, one month in how am I doing? Well im getting more than four hours sleep a night, on a week night I average 5.5 which is a vast improvement but still not quite meeting my target of 6.5 - i'll get there though.

As for consuming less, I made one purchase from my favourite bath and body seller Pegasus Soaps but no more toiletries other than that, I have decluttered quite a bit of paperwork and am trying to bin/recycle/donate at least one thing a day (today it was 3 empty plastic bottles from shampoo etc).

The craft supplies is a little harder, what i allowed myself to do was buy anything i needed before yesterday Jan 31st as I have quite a few new product lines up my sleeve. But from now on, I only buy something if I run out and absolutely need it - adhesive for example. Hopefully that will last for a couple of months anyway!

how are your new years resolutions or goals going?

I'm glad you're getting more than 4 hours of sleep. I have the same sleeping problem and it's torture. If only I could shut my brain off for a few more hours! Wishing you lots of sleep the following year.

Good for you! I'm doing ok on some of my resolutions, not so well on others, but it's been a rocky month.
