April Goals

We have been in a pandemic for over a year now and I am not sure if I can continue to blame my lack of motivation for not accomplishing my goals on that. I will try really hard to set and accomplish goals this month. Here are 5 goals that I set for myself. They might seem easy, but I have been struggling a lot, so I wanted to make it easy on myself.

  1. Read 3 books
  2. Post five times on my blog
  3. Run 40 miles
  4. Watch YouTube only 2 times a week
  5. Cut back on phone usage
