Lately, I’ve fallen so deep into a hole that I haven’t been able to get out.

The drop down has been so long that I’ve doubted whether I will ever stop falling. I’ve spent the majority of the last week laying on the couch. My body has felt so tired and beaten down that moving any part of it just feels unbearable.

I was able to get out of the house for a little bit yesterday.

That was definitely a mood lifter. So I am ending my weekend on a much brighter note than what it began on. I’m ending it with a bit of hope that I can keep the positive vibes flowing.

I took some time yesterday to reflect, and remember some things that are in my control that help me feel good and happy. Going into this week I am setting some small, personal goals for myself, just giving myself something to work towards and hold myself accountable to.

Do 1 load of laundry every day.

Our house has 5 people in it, and I find it so hard to stay on top of house hold chores. Especially LAUNDRY. So, this week I am going to try to get a small amount done every day.

Get outside.

I noticed how much better I felt when I was able to force myself to get outside, so that is definitely on my goal list this week. I am going to make sure to get outside every single day for at least ten minutes.

Put my outfit out the night before.

I bought myself 3 new outfits this weekend that I’m really excited about, but in the hopes of making it to actually getting dressed, I am going to set my outfit out the night before. I think this will help me stay motivated in the mornings when I am tired, to actually get dressed.

Make myself small meals.

I can’t remember the last time I prepared a meal for myself. I’ve been living off cereal, toast, and whatever other easy to find things I had in my kitchen. But, I feel so much better when I eat a healthy, well-balanced meal. So, this week I am setting it as a goal to eat one per day. I know this might be a bit of a stretch for an achievable goal, but I’m going to work really hard.

Take my meds.

Tomorrow I visit the psychiatrist for another assessment. The plan is that she will give me a new plan, and my intention is to fill the prescriptions and to start taking them in the way she says.

Wash my make-up off every night.

I intend to do my make-up every day, but to take the time to wash it all off before bed. My skin feels so much better when it is clean and washed. I often skip this step just out of exhaustion, but this week I am determined to do it.

Make self-care a daily thing.

Self-care Sunday is nice, but I think at this point for me, I need to get back into the routine of caring for myself each and every day. My goal is exactly that this week. Practice self-care every single day.

My hope is that by setting out intentions and goals I will be able to cultivate my week into a better experience.

Do you make weekly goals? What are yours this week?

Love Always, N

  1. This is a good plan! I think it’s great to start with small steps and then just build from there. I have an issue with the outfits too, I spend too much time thinking about what to wear in the morning! I always just end up using whatever I see first, haha.

  2. Taking your meds is an important one and one which I am glad to see on this list among everything else! That and laundry, because I am awful at doing laundry and you’ve reminded me! I hope you manage to achieve your goals as planned!

  3. I love your ideas of doing a load of laundry daily, putting your clothes out and going outside. I think I will be adopting these practices into my selfcare system. Thanks for the tips.

  4. That’s a great list of goals you’ve set yourself and it’s probably something I should practice again. Getting out every few days would be nice and I really will try to make more effort. Now hubby’s back from Spain, I might even manage a trip out tomorrow.

    I hope you’re successful with your goals and keep us posted.

  5. It’s so crazy how life gets in the way of life, right?! I try to practice self care every day even for a little bit but sometimes there just isn’t enough time. Being sick with the flu this week has shown me I need to start taking my health along with the baby’s health and habits a bit more seriously!

    These are great goals and I hope you have a successful week and rest of the month!

  6. Great simple goals hun!! I hope you feel abit better throughout the week!! My goals this week is to also get washing done and take time for myself to relax x

  7. I have had this same issue. I feel like I have been in a hole the last 2 weeks. I’m creeping up on 35 weeks of pregnancy and I feel like I can’t even remember to take my meds or none the less eat. I feel so overwhelmed. What’s crazy is that I practice self care, but when it comes to bare necessities I’m lacking the last week or so!
