I’ve been thinking, why make resolutions once a year, when you could make them once a month?
With yearly resolutions we commit ourselves to achieving things which inevitably take time and consequently don’t benefit from any immediate gratification or buzz of accomplishment. So this year, as well as the big ones (like finally swotting up on my French), I’m going to try setting monthly resolutions. I’ll be addressing the little things, perhaps a niggling task I’ve been putting off for too long or a burst of enthusiasm for a hobby I’ve neglected. I hope by accomplishing them, it’ll remind me to keep on top of the simple things.
January is going to be about feeling good and setting myself up for the year ahead, so I’ll be:
- drinking 1.5 litres of water a day
- eating 4 of my 5 a day, of which 1 portion will be blueberries
- catching up on sleep, by switching lights off at 9.30
- completing a yoga course
- working out once a week
- reading, reading, reading
- finally growing the 4 teeny nails I’ve punished for too long
- setting up a dearivy shop on Folksy
- and trying really hard to put a small sum of monthly income into my savings
I agree, this hardly sounds exciting! But I don’t want to run before I can walk…all in good time.
