New Year, New Me?

Hey Everyone,

First of all, Happy New Year!! How is it 2017 all ready?
I hope you all enjoyed my first attempt at Blogmas, I really enjoyed doing it and will hopefully be able to do it again this year.

Today I thought I would share with you my New Year’s Resolutions or Goals that I want to try and achieve this year. This year is my last year of school so it is going to be hard but I am quite excited for school to be finished…just have to get through my exams first!

1. Take a step back from technology and spend time doing other things I love 

I spend a lot of my time on my phone or my laptop and on social media and mixed with school work I don’t really have a lot of time for other things such as reading for fun. Technology is now such a large part of our lives and it can be hard to ignore but I really want to try and focus my downtime on other things.

2. Keep my room and work space tidy 

When my room is untidy I tend to get more stressed and when I want to relax I can’t unwind because of the amount of mess I have around me. Also, if my desk is messy I find it really hard to work and focus on what I am doing because there is so much going on around me.

3. Get into a routine in the evenings 

I want to try and go to bed on time and around the same time every night – this can be hard with school because of everything that I have going on in the evening but I want to try and get a good sleeping pattern. I always have problem going to sleep and sticking to a routine so I want to try and make this happen.

4. Turn off all technology at least 30 minutes before I go to bed

This one is going to be quite hard for me because I always go on my phone to check social media, talk to my friends or watch YouTube or Netflix but I want to try and do other things before I go to bed such as reading to help me get a better nights sleep.

5. Spend time with people who make me feel happy and positive 

Last year I had a few problems with friends and I let that get me down quite a lot and it really affected me but this year rather than focus on the negatives I want to focus on the positives and spend time with people who really make me happy.

6. Get into a regular posting schedule on my blog 

I did quite well at the end of last year with posting on a regular basis and it made me feel really proud of myself so I want to try and keep doing that this year. But I also don’t want it to get me down if I do miss a week or two because of school work because no matter how much I love blogging my school work is still really important.

7. Try new things and learn new skills 

There are so many things I said I wanted to do last year but never got around to doing. I have always wanted to know how to do calligraphy and improve my handwriting so I want to either teach myself or go on a course, little things like that I want to try and achieve this year among other things such as:

  • Go on a Calligraphy Course
  • Go on a Jessops Photography Course
  • Go to a Biscuiteers Icing Class
  • Learn how to do Yoga
  • Take more photos for fun

These things may seem quite simple to some people but for me some of these things will be out of my comfort zone and I need to try and push myself to try new things.

I hope you enjoyed this post with the things I want to achieve this year and maybe it gave you some inspiration for your New Year’s Resolutions?

See you next week with a new post,
