Happy New Year!
2017 is officially over and we can leave it behind us. 2018 is a new year for all of us. It’s a fresh start.
This year I’m going to try and be kinder to myself and do more things I enjoy.
I want to start meditating regularly this year. I’m not the best at sticking with habits but I definitely want to try and be serious about this one. I have the app Headspace which is brilliant by the way! The problem is I don’t use it often enough. This year I want to complete one meditation per day. I’ve decided to start off with three minute meditations before progressing onto five minute ones and then hopefully ten minute ones.
I also want to try and be less hard on myself and do more of the things I enjoy. I would love to read a book a month. I love reading and I haven’t properly done it in ages. If I don’t read a book a month I at least would like to make a conscious effort to read even a few pages of a book every day. I want to regain my love for reading and get truly lost in the world of a good story.
I want to get my creative side going again. I love making handmade cards and drawing. All this seems to stop when I get stressed or unmotivated or frustrated but I’ve started looking at my life and thinking that these things that I enjoy shouldn’t stop when I’m going through tough times. They should continue. In fact these things that I enjoy can be used to help me get through the tough times. They can act as a way of expressing myself, who I am and what I believe in.
Lastly but by no means least one of the other things that I enjoy and want to continue doing throughout 2018 is getting outdoors and enjoying nature. I enjoy jogging around my local area as well as going on long walks in parks.
Did you make any new years resolutions this year?
2018 is a new year and I hope to make it a good one.
I hope your 2018 is a great one full of happy times.
Until next time!
