My new year's resolutions

I know I've only just written my introduction post, but I thought I'd better get this post up as soon as possible, seeing as I'm already three days late! As is tradition at this time of year, I thought I’d share my resolutions with you all (writing them down somewhere public might help to motivate me into sticking to them too!).

       Be happy

2013 wasn’t the best year for me, and for the majority I was not very happy. This year I’m hoping I can improve that by better organising my time so that I don’t have to feel guilty when I take time off uni work just to relax. I’m also going to make sure that I have time to do things that I enjoy :)

2.    Work hard at uni so that I can achieve a 2:1

This year is my last at uni, and so these next months are going to be some of the most important of my life. Uni is not something I’ve really enjoyed, but I also don’t want three years of my life to go to waste, and so I’m determined to achieve a grade that I’m proud of. I also have a gap year to look forwards to, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to manage it.

       Look after myself

I’m beginning to realise that if I want to get the most out of my life later on, I might have to start getting into better habits now. At the moment my lifestyle isn’t a big problem as I’m still young, but I know that I need to exercise and drink more so that I don’t struggle as I get older. At the moment my exercise routine consists of running/walking once a year for the Race for Life (when possible!). I have recently started up pole fitness though, which I love. So I’m hoping that’ll help me get up more stairs without getting out of breath. On the drinking water front, I’m going to aim to drink two litres a day. As someone who’s never drank more than three glasses a day I’ve realised that I’m probably chronically dehydrated, which can’t be good. I would also love to put on a bit of weight if possible, and I'm aiming to dedicate more time to choosing my outfits and doing my hair properly. I would love to have more days where my outfit makes me feel like I can do anything.

Not too much to ask, hey? I won't be too hard on myself if I can't achieve them all, although the first two are pretty vital so hopefully those work out. I'll keep you updated on my progress throughout the year :)

What about you? Do you have many new year's resolutions this year?

  1. When I saw the 2 words - New Year, I immediately remembered a not so pleasant situation for me.I always give gifts to my friends and family for Christmas.This time I almost broke the tradition, because I lost my job. I was not discouraged and started looking for certified resume writer services and found ResumesUniverse ,they are the best of their kind.
