I really enjoyed posting about my 2017 New Year’s Resolutions on here and giving an update about how I got on each month.
But this year I’m keeping it simple. I have five resolutions to keep to, as I have no idea where the year will lead. I decided that in April/May time this year I will be leaving my job and it looks like we could also be moving! I’ll know more in the next month or so.
So 2018 could be an exciting year full of changes.
Here are my five resolutions for 2018, which I may add to throughout the year:
1-Eat healthier and exercise
I decided to put these two together for this year. In 2017 I made some progress with healthier eating and I also signed up to the gym, so I’m hoping to continue making progress this year.
I’m always reading magazines, but I’ve hardly read any books lately. I own a tonne that are just sitting on my bookshelf, so I hope to read more this year. The goal is to read at least one book per month if possible.
3-Do 2 new things per month
This is a resolution that I really enjoy, as it pushes me to try new things and it can include any new thing, no matter how big or small. Whether it’s trying a new restaurant, visiting a new park or a country it all counts.
4-Visit three NEW countries and three NEW Cities (Any new towns and villages, or extra cities/countries are a bonus)
I’ve included this as a resolution again because I just love travel! We was fortunate to visit a lot of new places last year, so if we can visit even half as many places this year I’d be thankful.
5-Use up what I have before buying more
If ever there was a time for me to stick to this, it’s now! I have a room packed full of beauty products from holidays, my birthday, Christmas.
I have more than enough, so I’ll try to only purchase essentials. Essentials can include makeup so long as it’s an item I use daily like foundation, concealer, etc.
Whilst not officially one of my five resolutions, I’m aiming to give myself more ‘me time’ this year. Time to watch TV shows, to have pampering sessions or go for a walk.
Even just having days to sort through my room and catch up on things.
Let me know your 2018 New Year’s Resolutions.
