Ah… the glittery feeling of the New Year. A clean slate to start all over again. How stressful can it be to write down your new years resolutions? Are we forced by society to do so since it’s a New Year? Should we start writing all our promises to ourselves that sometimes we end up hating at the end of the year?
Ironically, I have a fabulous notebook where I write down my New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of December. Then I force myself to add some more resolutions at the beginning of January. Only to look at them at the end of the year and see what my expectations for that year were and how many of them I did or didn’t accomplish. Pheeeew! just got tired only explaining it, imagine when it gets real.
So no more meticulous resolutions. This year as I start my blog I promise myself to come down to 5 attainable resolutions.
1) Take control over my migraines.
Say what? As confusing this can sound, I recently found out after years and years of suffering, that gluten and lactose products trigger my migraine to the sky. So if I eat a clean, gluten-free, lactose-free diet most of the time, I will take control over the excruciating pain migraines can cause.
2) Learn or try something new every month.
Anything. From Pinterest DIY fun to cooking a new recipe. This year’s motto is learning, so I’m really looking forward to it.
3) Exercise minimum 3 times a week.
Come on, an hour of exercise is just 4% of a day and health is a priority. Plus I love the feeling after a work out. So this is a must and obviously a cherry on the top of my health improvement plan.
4) Take a small vacation.
I already know where I’m going…you’ll just have to stick around for the surprise.
5) Smile more.
Last year was definitely fun and I did smile a lot. But this year I have to double that and smile even more. It’s fun and it’s good for the soul!
We’ll talk again about this post at the end of this year and hopefully I would have checked marked all of them.
What are your top 5 resolutions for this year?
