One Resolution Per Month: May

Hi Lovely Friends!

If you have been following me for a while, you might know that instead of making New Year's resolutions, I usually break them down into smaller chunks for every season or so. That way, I will less likely to get overwhelmed by my long list of  'commitment' to self and more likely to stick to them. However, I still skip some of them and feel somewhat overwhelmed by them. Then I skip doing it and I'll feel bad.

So, I want to try out a new thing. Instead of making list of a lot of resolutions, I will make ONE resolution per month. Yep. Just one. As much as I am tempted to make more, there are so many new, good habits that I'd like to start, I know that there is a greater chance of success if I only commit to do one thing, but on a consistent, daily basis. Think about it. Within a year, I would have made - and hopefully, completed - 12 resolutions. That's a lot. 

My resolution for May is: 

going to bed by 11 pm on weekdays and 12 midnight on weekends or off days. 

I'm a night owl and a late riser, and I really really want to develop a good habit of going to be early and wake up early. By sticking to this one thing for a month, I believe I can do it. One resolution for a whole month sounds doable, rite. So I will do it, consistently, on a daily basis.

Won't you join me on this journey? Let me know one resolution that you want to keep this May!

That's a clever idea! I'm inclined to embark on more sketches in the hopes of improvement of my basic skills...

I'd like to do one de-clutter thing every other day (at least).

This is a fantastic idea, I don't really make new year resolution but I do make monthly goals. My May goal is to write down three things that I am grateful for everyday.

LeeAnne, I love the idea of a fresh resolution every month so you can really put your best foot forward and give it everything you've got. Cheering you on from Wedded Wednesday. : )

This seems way more manageable than a long list in January. I love this idea.

Please delete if this is a duplicate: (My first comment was erased) Your one resolution a month is a great idea. As old as I am, I still have trouble getting to bed before 11:00 pm. Now I have an incentive. thanks for sharing at Tell me a Story.
