Monthly recap : May 2021

Monthly recap : May 2021

It’s the end of May and I feel kind off empty. I spent quality time with my family, watched shows with my sister and managed to maintain a good workout streak throughout the month. However, I always feel bad when good things come to an end. I don’t know what June holds for me but the only wish I have is to have mental peace. I remember having a great time at my vacation in March this year. I enjoyed every second of it and was the happiest I have been in a long while. I wish I could be that happy my entire life. I wish I could learn the secret to be happy forever.

Mental health

  • Meditated for 17/31 days. I wasn’t able to meditate easily this month. I had to force myself each day and was extremely distracted during the time that I meditated. I broke my streak on 23rd May and didn’t feel like starting back again.
  • Journaled/documented my day for days. I pushed myself to write on some days but quit after writing a single line.
  • Practiced gratitude journaling for 0 days. I didn’t write it down but before sleeping I tried to recollect 3 good things that happened during the day and be thankful for it on most of the days this month.

Personal Growth

This section is for a new skill or talent that I’ve acquired in this month, tried a new activity or thing that has pushed me out of my comfort zone.

  • I read 120 pages of a book in about 3 hrs. The book was super engaging and I completely lost myself in it. There was a power cut in our area because of cyclone tauktae so I had nothing else to do than read. (Book : Atomic Habits by James Clear)

Workouts

  • 1 long run in this month. 8.07 kms indoors within the confines of my small room at home.
  • Completed the 28 day SuperHIIT series by Tanvi Parikh. I am extremely proud of myself for completing this challenge and maintaining a 28 day continuous workout streak. This has been my highlight for this month.

Education

  • Zero progress with CFA level 1 curriculum.
  • Zero online courses completed in May

Entertainment

  • Completed reading 0 books (More than halfway through 2 books.)
  • Watched 2 amazing K-dramas this month that I loved. Crash landing on you and School 2017. K-dramas have the power to transfer me to a whole new world filled with love, warmth and innocence. It reminds me of my childhood when I was optimistic, happy go lucky and extremely hopeful in life.

May you have been amazing. June…..Please be good!

  1. You did great, you will do even better in June. You ran 8 km indoors, wow amd 120 pages in 3 hrs, impressive. It’s lockdown in your state right, I hope this will pass too, swiftly.

    1. The Kdramas I watched this month saved my life! I have so many unread books that when I open one to read, the fact that I may never be able to finish reading all the others gives me anxiety!

  3. At least you meditated for half the month – hopefully it helped you on those days! You know what they say ‘theres no other way then higher!’ Great post and I’m new to your blog and I love it! ❤

    1. Thank you so much for taking time out to read my post and post your lovely comment. I really want to maintain a daily meditation practice but somehow I break the streak each time. Let’s hope June is a good month to be consistent at this.

    1. I haven’t been too organized in the last 2 months either. I make these recaps to document my progress each month (good or bad). Trying to get back on track. Trying to form good habits that I’m consistent with. I’d suggest a book to you that’s insanely amazing to improve one’s productivity ‘Atomic Habits’ by James Clear. Do check it out.
