Welcome back, everyone! I’ve missed this challenge while it was on break for the winter holidays.

Let’s take a quick look at my 2021 goals.

  • I did a pretty good job of exercising (almost) every day and finding the good in the world in 2021.
  • Meditation was not a habit that stuck, so I’ll try again with that this year.
  • I did get vacccinated against Covid-19 last year and am currently waiting for a spot to open up so I can get my booster shot.
  • I tried as many new things as I could given the circumstances. Most of them were food related!

What are my goals for this year?

Meditate Daily. I need it for so many different reasons, one of which I’ll mention below.

A wooden cutting board that has a knife and chopped broccoli, carrots, red pepper, cucumber, and tomatoes on it. Grow Leaner and Stronger. I gained weight, lost muscle mass, and ate more junk food last year because cooking and eating delicious meals were some of the few safe things to do in lockdown. I’m working to reverse those trends in 2022. Since I’m already exercising, I really just need to clean up my diet in order to hopefully become healthier and feel better soon.

Find an Effective Treatment Regiment for My Migraines. I was finally officially diagnosed with migraines in 2021 and am currently working with my family doctor to find the best combination of medication, dietary changes, meditation, lifestyle changes, and other treatments to reduce how often I suffer from them and how painful they are.

Spend at least 15 Minutes a Day Practicing Spanish (and more if possible). I’ve done it every day so far this year! Maybe I’ll be able to count myself as somewhat fluent in it by the end of the year?

Make One New Friend. When I was a kid, I never would have guessed how much harder it is to make friends as an adult. If I can meet just one person who becomes a good friend in 2022, I’ll be thrilled.

Go On More Hikes and Nature Walks. This is something I find both relaxing and invigorating. I can’t wait until the weather warms up enough for me to go wander around outside again.

How about all of you?

  1. Hiking is so amazing- it just clears the head, at least I find- and good luck with your regimen! It is hard to make friends as an adult sometimes, isn’t it? You’d think it wouldn’t be, but most of my close friends are all from childhood.

  2. Hiking is one of my goals too! I want to go on a backpacking trip out of state for like a week or so. But I’m so out of shape that it’s going to be a while.
    My biggest goals are adoption and moving onto my grandparents property though!
    I hope you hit all of your goals this year.

    • Thank you!

      I’m sorry you have migraines, too. I hope you and your doctor/medical provider have discovered a good treatment regiment for you. There are so many different medications and other treatments out there.

  3. Hello Lydia,

    A blessed new 2022.

    You did fairly well in 2021.

    Meditation and yoga work wonders with migraines. Also try cinnamon tea.
    I have been consistently meditating all of 2021 and now. Yoga pranayamas are great and alternative meds like Ayurvedic or Bach flower remedies work wonders for migraine. As does a plant based diet.
    I had one for over 17 years! So just saying.

    Sorry too much information overload. Apologise for the unsolicited advice. 🙂

    be well and stay warm.

    God speed.
