I'm not making new years resolutions as such this year, I'm trying to stick to three main goals rather than ban things or set myself targets that I can't meet, I thought this year I would focus on three things that would make me happier in general. Every time I have set specific resolutions I have failed within about a week (giving up chocolate completely - I'm looking at you!).
My Three main goals I want to work towards in 2014 are:
To be healthier: I thought about cutting things like chocolate, coca cola, mcdonalds etc out completely but I know that if I ban myself from eating something it makes me want it even more. I usually go about a week without something and then cave and eat much more than i usually would in one go. I have decided that I am going to reduce the amount of naughty things I eat, but not completely ban myself, sometimes a bar of galaxy is the only thing that will do! I just want to feel healthier, I know if I eat better my mood will improve. I'm also going to incorporate exercise into my weekly routine, I am a worrier and I find exercising is good for helping me to rationalise things that might be bothering me.
To keep organised: I am naturally a pretty organised person but I can sometimes find that everything I have to do can become a little overwhelming. I have recently synced my personal planner with the calendar on my laptop and I found this keeps me focused on what I need to do. I'm going to aim to keep this up as I've found that it makes juggling a lot easier.
To step out of my comfort zone: This is the goal I set myself every year and it is the hardest for me. As I previously mentioned I have a tendency to over analyse things and as a result this can lead to worry & stress. I have always been this way, but in the past few years it has started to get worse. I don't want it to have control of me and this year my goal is to do things that I might have previously said no too. My ultimate goal this year is to drive down a motorway, I know that might sound silly, but it's the one thing I really really panic about. Anything else I do this year is a happy bonus.
What are your goals for the year?
