My Favorite.. New Year's Resolutions
My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.
Every year in January I see a lot of people writing down or talking about New Year’s Resolutions. Some years I even joined the fun of thinking of and writing down New Year’s Resolutions. Most times I seem to lose my focus regarding these resolutions when time passes. But I definitely have a view Favorite New Year’s Resolutions that worked for me over the years and that I still want to keep for this year. Maybe it didn’t always work the way I hoped, but thinking about what I would like to change definitely made me feel better.
For one ‘eating more healthy and exercising more regularly’. I love this New Year’s Resolution. Not only because it’s definitely a good thing to eat more healthy after all that not-so-healthy-food I ate at Christmas and on New Year’s Eve. But also because it gets me focused on what’s best for me and my body. And I love reading tips and tricks about how to get healthier. Trying out new recipes, seeing what working-out can do for my body. It feels good! And since last year, when I started eating better and exercising more I’ve been feeling much better about myself. Not only do I feel healthier, but I also feel more confident. The last view months I haven’t been to the gym as much as I wanted too, and I’m hoping to improve that this year and make it more part of my routine. Somehow having this as a New Year’s Resolution always makes me feel more motivated to make it work.
Another one of my favorite New Year’s Resolutions is ‘achieving more reading time’. As a book blogger that resolution probably sounds a little strange. But I still think I can have more reading time if I plan my time better. And reading time is what makes me feel happy, relaxed and centered. Every year I have reading more, and having more time as one of my New Year’s Resolutions but this year I’m even more determined to make it work. With a full time job, and planning a wedding I definitely need to plan my time wisely, and hopefully it will make me able to read more and achieve my goal of reading 125 books for the Goodreads Challenge 2017.
So what are your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you have any favorites that you like to think of or write down every year?
