I’m sure I’ve mentioned it but I’m not the biggest fan of new year’s resolutions. But I do like to set goals for myself to work towards during the year.
In my mind a goal is different to a resolution. It’s probably just semantics, but It works for me. I like my goals to be small tweaks that are actually achievable and will and do value to my life. This is what I will be working on in 2017.
Health: I have a few health related goals I want to achieve this year. I got very slack towards the end of last year and I need to work on improving my overall health.
- I want to complete the three 30 days of yoga challenges on Yoga with Adrienne on YouTube in succession.
- I want to work on cutting my caffeine intake to two cups a day.
- I want to start drinking lemon water every day again.
- I want to increase my magnesium stores by transdermally supplementing and taking Epsom salt baths once a week.
- I want to get outside every day. Fund time to be more mindful and enjoy the day.
Wellness: This year I want to continue the good progress I made on looking after myself. Self care is so important. If I don’t feel my best I can’t give my family my best.
- Continue to make time for, work on and develop my hobbies such as knitting, reading, gardening and sewing.
- Practise self care more often. Taking care of myself means the whole family benefits.
- Spend time in the garden every day.
- Get enough sleep and have a proper bedtime!
- Make more of an effort to finish things and downsize, especially items in the home that are just collecting dust.
Parenting: I would like to make small tweaks to how our family operate. I feel like it’s important to spend quality time together and make an effort to be in the moment.
- Take Willow to play areas and outdoor playgrounds at least once a week.
- Learn a few new recipes to have on rotation for meals during the week. Try be better at meal prepping.
- Cut down on screen time for the whole family!
What have you got to work on in the new year? I hope it’s prosperous and full of all the best things in life.
