Happy New Year!!
I know you’re all busy at the gym, or food shopping for fruits & veggies, but when you get tired of that next week (or tomorrow, if you’re me), I hope you will come back and read this.
We had a pretty good 2014, but I’m hoping that 2015 is filled with bigger and better things, mainly apartments and salaries! And ok, maybe some smaller things, like stomachs and stress levels.
Instead of doing resolutions this year, I decided to pick a few goals to accomplish monthly. It seemed much more manageable to me that way, although there are times that I do miss my weekly resolutions from 2013. What I don’t miss is the time crunch every week that came with choosing, planning, accomplishing, and blogging about each activity. I figure if I pick only three things each month and spread them out over 30ish days, I can take my time to really get into each one without rushing through it. Or, you know, leisurely wait until the 29th to start all three, giving myself the anxiety that I seem to thrive on from creating projects like these for myself.
SPOILER ALERT: Positive thinking is not one of this month’s goals.
But here’s what is:
I think the first and second goals might end up tying into one another, but what I really meant to focus on was taking some time at the end of each night to wash my makeup off (I’m so bad at that), floss my teeth (I’m even worse at this), and do all those other routine-like things people do at the end of the day before crawling into bed with a book. I’m hoping it will help my skin, my mind, AND make dentist visits less terrifying.
The final goal is something I’ve been tossing around in my head for a few weeks. I’m not entirely sure how I’m planning to go about it yet, but I definitely need to cut down on syrupy lattes, holiday cocktails, and gum with fake sugars! Stick around to see how I do…
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? What’s on your list this year?
