For 2019 I’ve given myself more resolutions to achieve than last year. Some are the same as I want to continue to make progress with certain resolutions, some need more work and some are brand new. So here’s a look at my goals for the year ahead.
1-Eat Healthy & Exercise
I kept this resolution as I made so much progress last year. 2018 was the first year where I really kept-up regular exercise and healthy eating and therefore I lost over two stone.
This year I want to carry on eating healthily and to exercise at least three times a week.
Last year my aim was to read one book per month, so twelve for the year at least. In the end I managed ten, which was better than the year before.
My target is one book a month but I’m hoping to read more than twelve this year. I’d like to find time to read at least fifteen books.
3- Do 2 New Things Per Month
This is one of my favourite resolutions, as no matter how big or small the new thing is, it counts. Whether you cooked a new meal, ate at a new restaurant or travelled to a different country, these are all new things. I like to look back and see what I did throughout the year.
4-Travel/Go For Days Out
Last year I specifically set myself a target of visiting three new cities and three new countries, but this year I just want to travel. It can be new locations or places I’ve been before, as we love to revisit destinations we enjoy.
I also want to go for more days out. Whether it’s a day by the seaside, an outdoor cinema event or a day exploring London, I want lots of nice experiences to look back on.
5- Save Money
Over Christmas me and my partner spent a lot of money, so I want us to both start saving and focus on only spending money on things we want and need.
We’ve been viewing flats recently, so we hope to move in the next couple of months and we’re saving for that. It’s also my 30th birthday this year, so I’d like us to save hard for that.
6- Use My Phone Less
Like a lot of people, I use my phone far too much. I find that I procrastinate and spend a lot of time scrolling through social media, when I could be using my time more productively.
Blogging on my phone or looking up flats/days out is fine as it’s being productive, but I don’t need to check my social media as often. I will still check daily, but I want to use my time to read or blog more instead.
Let me know what your New Year’s Resolutions are.
