February Goals: Healthier Lifestyle and More

I have commited to sharing my monthly goals for a year and today I will continue with sharing my February Goals: Healthier Lifestyle and More.

Last year I haven’t posted much as I have been so busy figuring out what would be my next step in life. If I did, you would know that I lost around 27 kg through changing my eating habits and becoming more active.

Oh, I did gain half of it back! So no magic here – just ups and downs of eating habits.

Since half of February we are on holidays here in China, it will be easier to concentrate more on my eating habits and my health.

Besides, if you follow my newsletter and my Instagram account, you would know that I have also taken my Aromatherapy hobby more seriously and I now have a second website as a wellness and aromatherapy advocate: Aromatherapy With Varya. And another IG account – aromatherapyvarya . You can follow me, by the way, if this topic is of any interest to you.

Getting back to my goals:

1. Work on eating habits and healthier meals.

2. Adding more exercise to my daily routine.

3. At least 2 Live workshops per month for both my sites.

4. This one is exciting: complete preparation for a series of workshops on cooking and DIY with essential oils.

5. Start bi-monthly Montessori series.

That’s about it. I don’t think all of it would be a matter of just one month. I am sure this will stretch well into the next. I just feel inspired and motivated, and I know I can do it!

While thinking about your own goal, stop by Mama Smiles and 3 Dinosaurs to see what they have planned for February!

Keeping Mind and Body Fit in April

april goalsI am a bit late with posting my April goals.

For those of you who don’t know it yet, I am taking part in a great 10 week fitness challenge that requires me to eat clean and exercise. It has been going well so far and I was able to control my portions, and eat plenty of nutrients that help me not only lose weight, but feel energetic, too.

So, what are my goals for this month?


– educate myself more on various topics of interest (parenting, moral education for kids, some science);

– hopefully start learning more about photography (yes, this is for my mind as I would have to learn about the light, the focus etc);

– get back to my doula studies as to be honest I am a bit behind!


– continue to eat clean and make it a habit;

– continue regular exercise


– work on managing to have my posts all scheduled on time;

– work on time management in general, because, you know, you can’t just juggle it all at the same time.

What are your goals for April?
