Top Ten Tuesday: Resolution/Hopes for 2021
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. 10 is just a suggestion to aim for if you can hit it. You can do a list of 3 or 5 or 20, whatever you decide. And you can put a spin on the topic if you need to. Each week there is a new list to create. This week's topic is:
Resolution/Hopes for 2021
1. Read 100 Books
Last year I read almost 80 books and I know that I could reach a goal of 100 because I plan on listening to more audio and reading more children's books.
2. Add my reviews to Goodreads
I haven't always been consistent in doing this and then I'm caught scrambling at the end of the year. This year I'm posting my review on other sites as soon as it's published on my blog. No more procrastinating.
3. Read all books in my NetGalley account
I have 7 books currently on my shelf, 4 of which are for upcoming tours and 3 are overdue reviews.
4. Participate in the challenges I signed up for
Nonfiction Challenge, A to Z Reading Challenge, and my personal ones: I Love Italy Reading Challenge, Time Travel Reading Challenge and Reading the World Challenge
5. Read more books from my personal shelf
I have too many books! Books that I've been wanting to read and that I sometimes forget I own. Time to change that and start digging in my own bookshelves to find my next read.
6. Prepare my posts ahead of time
When I manage to do this, blogging is less stressful regarding deadlines. So I want to be more consistent about prepping my posts.
1. Get more sleep
I want to establish a better sleep routine which consists of being in bed at 10 pm so that I am asleep by 11. It's a hit and miss with me so this goal is priority.
2. Continue intermittent fasting
I've gained some weight during the fall with the lockdown and not being as active as usual. Intermittent fasting helps me to feel better and to lose weight.
3. Cut down on my sugar intake
I'm already pretty good with this but I know I can do better.
4. Exercise more
Getting on my bike and getting a good cardio is easy in the summer but not as easy when the weather is cold. Besides walks I've been negligent and need to work out more.
How about you?
