2022 Goals

I’ve thought about this post a lot the last few weeks. I wish I had a great introduction or a brand new idea. Or something. But, well, frankly it’s the same old plod that’s important to me. Go to work, come home, play with the animals, paint. With COVID still doing its thing, making huge extravagant promises seems foolish. And with my general struggles right now, keeping it simple seems to be a good plan. So, here goes.

    • Track
    • Eat breakfast
    • Prep food
  • Yoga
  • Hit 10,000 daily

Area 2: Mental Health

  • Remember that alone time is an important part of my mental health.
  • Do NOT overextend yourself (be on boards, volunteer too much.)

Area 3: Painting
