Happy New Year to all of our lovely followers!
With the New Year, comes New Years Resolutions (if you’re someone who makes them, of course). These are intended to help us improve the year to come or meet coveted goals by making changes; for example…
- Weight loss and/or fitness goals
- Going vegetarian or vegan
- Ditching plastic
- Gaining a promotion
- Becoming more mindful
- Taking up a new sport or hobby
The possibilities really are endless – ultimately though, it has to be something that you know will improve your life, so it’s good to;
- Reflect on your life; home, health, career, family etc. What parts would you like to improve?
- Consider whether your goal is achievable; don’t set yourself up for a fall. Want to lose a tonne of weight? Set your resolution to a smaller loss, and then change your goal as your weight loss continues.
- Resolution reminders – will you actually remember, or will you be off the rails by February (like me most years)? Leave yourself little notes and reminders on your calendar, phone, etc. notifications from your phone calendar is a really good reminder tool.
I know all too well that it can be tricky deciding on resolutions, and sometimes inspiration from other people can help us create our own resolutions. I’ve asked the lovely mummies in our Facebook community what their resolutions for 2019 will be, to help inspire you all. Good luck!
