22 for 2022

My 22 for 2022 list

My 22 for 2022 list is made up of actions I want to take the in three areas where I want to make progress in the first three months of 2022:

  • supporting my body and mind
  • engaging in meaningful work
  • exploring

Some of these spill over into the second three months but I’ll worry about them after the end of March. Actually, I’m not worrying about too much beyond next month (which at the time of writing this, end of January 2022, is February). Even though I’ve put some times against all of these things, the ones after February are very vague targets that I’ll review at the end of every month because I think some major things could change very quickly and completely mess up any tightly woven plans. So I only want to plan out a month at a time.

My plan is to write a post each week about the progress I made on the things I wanted to work on that week, but also to set out a plan for the next week that I can report back on at the end of the week.

I’m also working on putting new habits in place for these three areas, which I’m writing about here.

And just to spice things up, here’s a list of 22 (well, actually, eight at the moment) recipes I want to try out in 2022.
