Healthy Living Goal Monthly Calendars #2016goals

Each year seems to come and go so quickly anymore. Each year of New Years resolutions go in one year and out the other...mostly because I haven't held myself accountable at all. So this year, instead of making a flat goal for the whole year, I'm taking it all on in chunks -- by month. I'm not necessarily looking to lose weight specifically, but I'm looking to improve my overall health.

To help in these goals, I created healthy living goal monthly calendars. Each month I will set 6 goals for myself to help improve my overall health -- physically, emotionally, and mentally.

 


This month's goals are pretty basic and very achievable, as long as I stay motivated. :)


1. Drink 3 bottles of water per day. (Maybe a few less sodas.) I have Camelbak water bottles and absolutely LOVE them. Not sure why - maybe the straw - but I tend to drink more water when it's in one of these water bottles.
2. Increase steps per day during the week. I bought a FitBit Charge HR in November and have challenged myself over the last month to increase my steps every day (during the work week). Being a teacher, you'd think I'd naturally have a lot of steps each day. Well, I'm sure most teachers do, but I majorly #FAIL at it. So if by the end of the day I haven't surpassed the previous day's step number, I go to my teammate's classroom and just walk basically in circles while we plan and chat. She thinks I'm ridiculous, but it's better than sitting and talking. ;)
3. 8+ hours of sleep each night. My FitBit helps me track this automatically. This is one of my favorite features about the new FitBit -- I don't have to remember to put it into sleep mode anymore.
4. Feel the gratitude. Last year my overall focus was gratitude. This year I'm going to continue to focus on gratitude, but I need to start feeling it more. Not just writing it in my gratitude notebook. Not just saying that I'm grateful for things. Actually feeling it inside me.
5. Meditate daily. This is a totally new thing for me. I downloaded the Calm app on my smartphone and have been taking a short meditation break each day over the last week. My biggest goal in doing this is to unplug for a hot minute, focus on myself, and just let it all go.
6. Stop biting my nails. 28 years of biting my nails has to be absolutely nasty in that stomach of mine. (Okay, I'm sure it's more like 23 years...who knows when it started.) I've had this goal far too many times. But maybe if I track it by day, I can motivate myself to stop.

HopeLine from Verizon #VZWBuzz #MoreSLC





October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Verizon’s HopeLine program supports organizations nationwide that help victims of domestic violence.
HopeLine® from Verizon puts our technology and the nation’s most reliable and largest wireless network to work in the community by turning no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories into support for domestic violence victims and survivors. It also helps protect the environment by disposing of wireless phones in an environmentally sound way.

Through HopeLine, the public can help prevent domestic violence by donating no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories in any condition from any service provider at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store, by mail or at special events held throughout the year.

Wireless phones given to HopeLine are refurbished and sold for reuse, generating proceeds for the program. Refurbished phones – complete with 3,000 minutes of wireless service and text-messaging service – are provided to local domestic violence agencies or local government and law enforcement agencies for use with their domestic violence clients. If donated phones are unsalvageable, they are recycled in an environmentally sound way under a zero landfill policy.

Donated phones can help victims of abuse feel safer and less isolated by giving them a way to call emergency or support services, employers, family and friends. Phone donations given locally benefit victims of abuse within that geographic area.

HopeLine also donates cash grants to nonprofit organizations to help fund education, programs, support services and community outreach. 

Verizon will donate $3 for every HopeLine branded accessory purchased. All of the HopeLine accessories are in a beautiful purple color.

For more information about HopeLine, please visit their website.
