Hey everyone and welcome to the first day of 2016!
Last year was definitely a rollercoaster for me but one that at least kept me on the rails. I had many firsts and experiences and maintained my same group of reliable and awesome friends.
I flew my first plane as an adult, had a gorgeous night on a cruise ship and had a brilliant family holiday in Butlin’s. That being said, Stars can’t shine without darkness and I have also had an amount of shadow thrown at me to.
So 2016, What am I planning for you!?
Well my Number 1 resolution is to sort my body clock out, I have decided at the moment that I am an [insert nocturnal animal name here] and so am at my best at night alone whilst everyone else sleeps and during the day I am just a sleepy unproductive mess. I am hoping for this to change, I will be setting alarms, having screen free time before bed and continuing with my lavander diffusers in my bedroom.
Number 2 is also health related, If you have been on my blog before you will know that when I get going I am a gym bunny, however, last year my mental health made me hide from it, comfort eating and losing my active love. This in turn has meant I have put on a few stone and so this year I would like to get myself back to the weight I was after I had had my second baby, 9 stone.
Number 3 is to keep my house tidy, clean and organised. In 2015 I have had a much more organised year than any other year I have had. I have put things into place like a family calender, white boards ect and I had started decluttering although not as much as I have recently since I have been researching the Kon Mari method which reviews rave about. I have put an order in for the book so I am looking forward to having a life changing decluttered home.
Number 4 will need a combination of all of the above, I am on quite a high dose of medication for my anxiety, depression and OCD. Including a blocker for panic attacks. I would like to continue with my hippie things even more so this year with more time to meditate, possibly throw yoga into the mix, my diffusers and lots more time outside in the fresh air with my friends and my boys.
Number 5 is to be more socialable, last year I seen more friends than I had done the previous year but still not as enough as I would like, that being said I am so happy with the group of loyal friends I have that are still there to hold me up and hold my hand even when I am in my hermit under a rock days and even when they notice I am in these moods have found a way to get me out of my house or up showered and dressed. That means more than you know so thank you!
Number 6 ‘my body is my temple’ – I would like to eat a lot more healthy, consuming more fresh vegetables and fruit (although we do eat a sensible amount anyway), I would like to up my daily intake of water each day, include apple cider vinegar and diatamaceous earth into my daily diet and to partake in more holistic activities, I have had the book Ask and it will be given recommended to me so I have ordered that and am looking forward to reading through it.
Number 7 is to stop biting my nails and finger skin! I have done it before and I can do it again, my anxiety means that I bite my nails and skin on my fingers a lot, not only does this freak me out because it is disgusting but it is also hideous looking. So hopefully I can write about the pretty real nails I will then have!
Have you decided on your New year resolutions/goals yet? I suppose rather than resolutions mine are more goals for the year, but start as I mean to go on in a positive and lets do this way. I look forward to taking you on my journey and thank you for being here, I would love to know what your goals are for this year?
