January is not only a fresh start for the year but also provides a milestone to break down the habits to achievable sub goals.
Plan for January
1.Discover your soul signature
It is a one page dose 3 times a day for 33 days to get you in touch with your emotions. I liked the idea of the book and even if it can’t bring out the emotions for the first time, I am sure that will be a thought which will be lingering in the consciousness and with a few repeated readings will become very effective.
Doing the exercises of artist’s way was quite exciting in the month of November. I could not stick with it in December due to other commitments. I will take the opportunity this month to speed up on the exercises and try to finish at least two a day.
I got coursera access for this month so want to spend my time learning professional and soft skills by studying various courses. I want to target to finish at least 8 courses (2 per week).
By the end of this year, I want to be able to do 30-45 minutes of Kapalbhati daily. Currently I do around 10 minutes. In this month, I target to do exactly 15 minutes daily in the morning.
5.Replacing checking notifications with Breathe from Belly
I switched off notifications for whatsapp. This means that I decide when whatsapp can distract me. I don’t want it to distract me whenever it wants which in turn means that I can create a lot of free time. I have decided that I will check whatsapp notifications 4 times a day or more if I have a conversation going on. I can evaluate my progress at the end of the month by comparing with my usage from the past month.
We normally breathe from our chest. Breathing from belly gives a sense of relaxation to our body.
Now I replace my urge to check whatsapp notifications by doing a deep breath from the belly. It provides me relaxation, saves time and gets rid of an unhealthy coping style.
6.Launch of ‘Make your dreams a reality’
I have launched a package to help people make their dreams a reality in 2021. Drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to book your 1:1 session.
Majorly, this month is all about consuming content to start working on action plans for the coming months.
