My 2018 Health and Wellness Goal

Are you the type of person who likes to create new goals each year? I am definitely not one of those people.

Why? Because I never end up sticking to it!


But... this year, I decided to go ahead and create a goal. To read one book a month, for the year. That amounts to 12 whole books.

To be honest, I didn't think I'd be able to achieve this. I just hadn't read very much since I had children, but I knew that I wanted to read more for my mental health. As a ways to escape, relax but also to learn and educate.

So 2018 was the year I expanded my mind. And yes, I am counting this as a health and wellness goal.

Did I achieve this goal? Totally! I smashed it. In fact, I think I underestimated myself. 

But... I stuck to my SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based), and created a goal that was completely attainable. A negative (or positive, depending how you look at it) side effect? I also developed a shopping habit for books and have accumulated a large pile of "must read next" books.

Here are my 2018 reads in no particular order:

As you can see, it's a huge list of really different books. Yes, I am now a Potterhead - love the films, never got around to reading the books before.

What were your 2018 goals? Did you achieve them? Will you be setting goals for 2019?
