NEW YEAR (& RESOLUTIONS)

JOURNAL

HAPPY NEW YEAR! WELCOME TO 2018!

I hope everyone had a wonderful night bringing in the New Year. I don’t know about you- but I have high hopes for this one. On New Years Eve we danced the night away, ate our weight in Tapas at ‘Flavour’ and drank way more than we should have- but after a delicious meal at my Grandparents house on New Years Day, we soon recovered.

Now, let’s get to it. Resolutions. This happens every single year where the majority of people make a New Years resolution to change something in order to achieve a personal goal or otherwise improve their own, or someone else’s, life. It’s just not very often people stick to this- unfortunately. According to a Comres Global Study, which you can see here, the most common resolutions so far surround being more active and losing weight, changing diet and lifestyle choices, learning a new skill or hobby or to spend more time with family and friends. All of those common ideas are positive, so isn’t it a shame we find it difficult to fulfil these personal yearly goals? Myself included.

I am going to make a conscious effort this year to stick to my resolutions. I am going to write them in my journal, look at them every day & remind myself to focus on achieving my goals. Here are my resolutions this year:

  • Take regular time out to focus on me and my personal well-being.
  • Be super efficient with money- hopefully, 2018 will be my year for moving onwards and upwards!
  • Remain consistent with my blog. Grow, learn & meet likeminded people along the way.
  • Ensure to keep in regular contact with family & friends- no matter what life throws at us.
  • Plan my meals and find time to cook new, interesting dishes.

Have you made any New Years Resolutions?  What have you been up to over the past few days? Again, I hope you had a fabulous New Year and I’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading,

    1. Awesome! What a good challenge! I’d love to do that but my parents would kill me as I’m staying at there’s (so they do most of the cooking) until the end of Jan! Good luck with it all x

  2. Think it’s kind of obligatory to come up with NY resolutions every January lol. I have them over on my blog as you saw! But I think its more about starting new things rather than focusing on things to give up. So whilst I know I should give up junk food, I will say that I will just try to eat healthier snacks. Its a nicer way of putting it haha. Glad to see you had a good new year!

  4. Looks like you had a wonderful evening! that cheesecake looks amazing 😍 I don’t make new year resolutions anymore as I tend to just make changes throughout the year as and when I think of them, but good luck to you! The ones you chose are all great choices!

  5. Food looks so yummy hungry just from looking at your photos! like your set resolutions for the year, some of yours are similar to mine. Good luck with sticking to them no matter how hard it gets and even if you don’t stick to all of them its still okay too!!

  6. I once went to a fab course of meetings, that was based on aspirations. And the man that was teaching us advised us that a large percentage of things like New Year’s resolutions fail, BUT, we do achieve something good from them and we do suceed in even just one of them, so it is always good to do them. Which is why I need to actually get my head in to gear and make a list of my own. I’ve had a messy start to the year, so it is time to get my ducks in at least an organised row.
