Wow, well 2016 was a real doozy, all things considered, and I’m glad to see the back of it, to be honest. But now we have a new year, a new slate and a new start. I love reflecting at this time of year and planning…planning good things and goals and being organised.
I’m still thinking about the things I want to add into my life and the habits I want to drop, but here are a few of my perusings so far:
I have an app that I use sometimes and it’s great…when I do it. It makes me feel better and I’m more focused, I just need to add it in to my daily routine. 10 minutes a day. That’s all.
2. Eat more plant-based foods
Yeah, I’m stuffed full of turkey and trimmings and feel like a sloth. And don’t even ask about the duty free spirits we bought and drank!! I need a dose of green.
3. Do a chin up
No idea why. I just want to be able to do one like the girl in peach top. My boys have a bar they stick on the door frame. I have no excuses. I’ll report back and let you know how I go!!!
4. Spend only 30 minutes a day on social media
I have to do it for my job, but then it has to stop.
5. Play more
Geez, everything’s so serious and life is a lot about work. So, in the gaps, I’m going to get off Facebook and have some fun. We’ve started playing cards and board games again and I’m giving knitting a go, which is lovely….and… now the sad thing is, I’m trying to write a ‘fun’ list and can’t think of anything else. How did that happen?
-learn to crochet
-learn how to take decent photographs
-make some bread
-plan some trips (local day trips/afternoon walks/further afield drives to explore new places) and then do them!
-dust off the bike and try the new ‘pink’ cycle route in town
-plant some colour in the garden, then take time to sit out there and enjoy it
How about you? What are your goals, plans and resolutions for 2017? What are you going to do for fun?
