New Year Resolutions 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Can you believe it's 2017 already? It doesn't seem that long ago since I was writing 2016's New Year resolutions and yet so much has happened. I'm not going to dwell on the past any more as I think I did that enough in my last two posts. It's here though. 2017 is finally here and boy was I ready for it! I am genuinely excited for the weeks to come even though I don't have anything planned, other than assessments. We're all so used to hearing the 'New year, new me' speech but this year I'm truly ready to start working on myself. I want to make sure I'm happy!

2017, new year, new years eve, party, lifestyle, fitness, holiday, travel

Before writing this I have just checked back on last years resolutions, and thinking about it, I want to pretty much do the same, but, I guess, more developed.

Eat well - I had a horrible illness at the start of semester which made me struggle to get the right nutrients, which continued to knock me back down. Eventually I managed to build my immune system back up again and began eating proper meals. I want to focus on setting myself weekly food plans that give me the right protein and vitamins that I need.

Train - In August I shall be climbing Kilimanjaro so of course I will need to train my body physically (and mentally). I did well last year with fitness so now I want to take it up a notch and set myself a proper training schedule. Going for more runs and walks and doing all that I can to feel ready before the big hike!

Learn - I think I now have a clear view on what I want to do with myself, even after university (I'll explain in another post very soon). To get to where I want to be I need to continue to learn things, outside of my lessons included. I've always liked having projects to work on so now I'm going to give myself mini projects to get researching. I particularly want to learn about ancient cultures. I'd also be interested in finding out more about astronomy and the universe. Learning to play the guitar and a new language would be great to!


I'm hoping the bottom two books will help me learn a little!

Explore - Last year I wanted to see more of the world. So far I already have the trip to Tanzania planned and hopefully I'll be able to book to go back to Mexico. That said, I want to explore where I live some more. I now live in Hull, when I'm at uni that is, and there are so many small towns and cities in East Yorkshire that I've never been to before. Road trips are definitely a must!

Routine - Finally, I want to get myself into a proper routine. I'm working on a daily schedule for myself. I'm going to get up and do some kind of workout or yoga, have a smoothie for breakfast then shower ready for the day! I'm hoping to be all about that healthy lifestyle. I really need to get myself going so I can stay busy and ultimately, happy!

I'm feeling positive about this year and I really hope I can get myself to stick to my goals. I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas and celebrated the New Year in style! Have a wonderful time in 2017!

See you soon!

I'm there with you on getting into a proper routine, I have left so much on the back burner leaving myself no time but working on blog and I need to free up some time and reorganize,

  7. Further development and learning are so important. Although it isn't really career related, I really want to do a short course this year in something I love just for the hell of it to learn a new skill! xxx

  9. I had a similar experience in being really unwell and definitely felt like I needed to get myself nourished as it really drained me! It sounds like you have some amazing plans for 2017. I might join you (virtually!) in the morning routine of yoga, I've never done it before though! :) xx
