New Year’s Resolutions
Unlike everyone else in the world I love a good “new year’s resolution.” It’s the perfect time to commit to something positive in your life. Weather you keep your promise or not it’s only to yourself so it really shouldn’t matter to anyone else if you fail. I know so many people are against making resolutions, but even if you fail, why not restart. It’s not life or death here guys, it’s just a lifestyle tweak.
Try and choose one thing, or many things that would positively impact your life. Maybe try and go for one walk a week, stay off social media until after work, or just try and drink 3 bottles of water a day. The key to success is to make it something small that can stick within your routine. If you try and give up sugar or delete Facebook it might be a bit too overwhelming which can lead you to failing and then never trying again. I’m always trying to improve myself so I decided to make a few new year’s resolutions.
Tip # 1 WRITE THEM DOWN
1. GIVE UP SODA ((POP or whatever you call them) I decided to give up soda. I know, how do I still drink soda? Well, I don’t drink it a lot but when I go out to eat, drink, or go to the movies ext. I usually drink soda and it’s just unnecessary calories sugar and toxins. So I will definitely try and cut it out.)
2. Drink a glass of water before coffee in the A.M. (I want to start my day with more hydration, it is also amazing for your bowels to start your day with a glass of warm water.)
3. Read more books. (self-explanatory, get off your phone Abbie!!!!)
4. Be more thankful. (every day is a gift, literally. Try to embrace the day and be more thankful for what you have. It can turn a negative attitude into a positive one.)
5. Don’t buy Clothes. YOU HAVE TOO MANY (Giving up buying clothes for one year could really help my shopping addiction, reduce my debt and make me more thankful for what I already have ((see resolution #4))
Okay so, I have already messed up on number 2,4, and 5. But that doesn’t mean I am going to give up on everything. Restarting my resolutions only helps me realize if you make a mistake it’s okay, keep going and keep trying. I’m happy to say I have been reading way more then I was and I also have not had a soda in 22 days. Yes 22. I’m counting every second. I miss diet coke. :(
And as for everything else, I’ll keep you all posted on how it’s going later on next month.
