I’m a little late to the party with this post, but after a tough Christmas and New Years, I couldn’t get any motivation to write anything until now. Like most people, I’m not a fan of New Years resolutions as a general rule but after a draining November and December, I think now is the perfect time to try to change some things and set some goals.
- Adjust my attitude and be more positive. I’m a realist but veer towards pessimism when I’m stressed and under pressure. This has to change for my own well-being, but more generally some self-belief and positivity will do some wonders for me.
- Read more. I’m challenging myself to read at least 52 books this year. I hope to include genres which I have never tried before, classics which I haven’t read yet and non-fiction topics which I know nothing about.
- Be healthier and lose some weight. I’m overweight from comfort eating during the last few months, and I need to get back to eating fresh food which will sustain my body. I also need to do more exercise and get fit again.
- Leading onto… I want to fundraise some money for the Irish Cancer Society in memory of my fiance’s father who passed away recently following a courageous fight against lung cancer.
Overall my goal is to have sustainable changes for the better in my life. I want to be healthier and happier, and for any changes to become a habit for life rather than a crash diet or temporary shift in outlook.
What are your New Years resolutions?
