Notes on New Year’s Resolutions

And as for my thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions, well I never stick to them so I won’t be setting myself any this year as I fail them before I even get started. I do have a few things I’d like to work on in 2017 though and as such, I have set myself 3 intentions for the year – any more than this and I know I won’t stand a chance!

In 2017 I want to:

  1. Worry less | My poor brain is always in overdrive, overthinking and worrying about every little thing. I have set myself similar goals in previous years but I’ve never actually worked on worrying less. I intend to do something about it this year, watch this space.
  2. Focus on my health | By health I mean I really need to drink more water, exercise more regularly and snack less. I am getting married in 4 months time and I’m feeling motivated to lose some weight and get a bit fitter.
  3. Keep Blogging | 2016 wasn’t my best blogging year, sure I’m still very proud of everything I have achieved and how much my blog has improved and progressed but I know I can do more. I want to make time to more regularly comment on my favourite blogs, join Twitter chats and just generally take it up a notch. This little space means the absolute world to me and I so want to keep at it to make it the best it can be.

I had a lot of fun putting this list together of 2016! What are your hopes and intentions for 2017?

  • I really need to worry less too, this was one of my 2016 goals and I failed miserably so it won’t be a goal for 2017, I am a born worrier and recently have had very bad anxiety so maybe I’ll not set a goal but will try my best :) loved this post and laughed about the nail polish in 2016, me too! You achieved some amazing things in 2016, I love your blog and cannot wait to see what 2017 brings xxx
