3 Goals That I Want To Accomplish By The End Of 2020

As most of us all know, there isn’t really much going on this 2020 because of the pandemic and well.. you get the picture. Not to mention that nothing really went according to my plan. So truth to be told, I don’t really have any goals in terms of career (and whatnot) this year considering that being hired at this time seems to be an unattainable goal.

As cliche as it’s going to sound, my goal this 2020 is to create sustainable and healthy habits that will be beneficial for me in the long run so that when this all ends, I have certain lifestyle that I am capable of maintaining.

Exercise

I have been consistently exercising 5 times a week for more than 7 months now. I used to exercise in the gym but when my membership expired I tried doing home workouts and it really worked for me.

I’ve been doing Chloe Ting’s home workouts and it has been effective. Though i’ll admit that it’s not the same as lifting weights at the gym, it’s still effective nonetheless. I feel more comfortable exercising in the comfort of my home and it’s free.

Other than slow and minor physical changes, I have noticed its drastic effects on my mood. Whenever I forget exercising, I tend to feel unaccomplished and sluggish the whole day so i’m at the point where I crave doing the exercises.

Meditation

I actually started meditating last week so I don’t see any drastic changes yet. I was convinced to meditate by this well-being course i’m taking and it showed a lot of scientific research and statistic about those who meditate having a high level of concentration and satisfaction compared to those who don’t.

It supposedly helps you to be present and to prevent you from mind-wandering which I tend to do a lot of. So far I’ve been meditating for 10 mins every day and I do feel a lot better and more focused.

I sometimes do the meditation where I concentrate on my breathing and other times I think about why I love myself and certain people in my life. It feels good. I think it will help me a lot in terms of mindset as I keep doing it.

Learning

Now that i’m an unemployed college graduate, I realized how much I missed learning this whole time. For the past month, I’ve been consistently going back to the free online courses that I signed up for.

I’m currently taking up “The Science of Well-Being”, “Songwriting 101”, and “Poetic Visions Workshop”. I’m almost done with these courses so afterwards I plan on looking for more interesting topics to study.

I’ve been reading a lot of self-help books too. I guess I just really want to make use of this quarantine time by learning about things that I am genuinely interested in which I didn’t have the time to do before. It has been keeping me going all this time.


This journal entry is my response to the 5th question of Project Self-Love which is “What are 3 goals you want to accomplish by the end of the year?”

How about you, Reader? What goals have you been trying to accomplish this 2020? I hope you are all doing safe and well.

    1. I read Atomic Habits by James Clear! It definitely helped me a lot with building habits. It talks about doing small but effective habits that will produce large results in the long run. I highly recommend it!

      The most effective tip that I know is scheduling the habit you want to develop, like think about what you’re gonna do, when and how you’re gonna do it. They say that once you’re mentally set to do such habit, the more chances of actually doing it.

      Good luck to you and thanks for reading!! πŸ™‚

      1. Woah! I had started reading this book few weeks back but then stopped it. Not that I didn’t like the book, I did.

        But I’m going through a weird phase & don’t feel like doing anything.

        Now you’ve also said it, I’ll grab the book once again πŸ˜‰
        Thank you!!!
