Morning everyone! And, of course, Happy New Year.
I hope you guys don’t mind that I took a week off over the festive period. I figured no-one would be reading anyway and everyone needs a break sometime, right? Anyway, we’re back and ready for a new year and the same old same old otherwise.
How do you guys feel about new year’s resolutions?
Personally, I’ve ignored enough of my own to not bother anymore. But I think that, for some people, changing something about yourself by the time Big Ben bongs its last can have a real psychological benefit. There’s a finality to it.
Bong. No more gluten for me!
Bong. You’re a new person now.
Bong. Things are going to be different.
I hope that, if you’ve made a resolution, you can stick to it and improve yourself in whatever way you feel that you need to. For me, there aren’t really any resolutions as such, just little changes that I want to make to myself to improve my quality of life. I made such a huge change by leaving nursing last year that I don’t really want to make any sweeping changes. But I have a little list of things I’m going to try to do more often.
- No TV/phone/internet/emails for an hour before bed
- Read more (it helps me to write)
- Write more (it helps keep me sane)
- Keep this blog going until everyone starts screaming “Oh shut the hell up already!”
See? Nothing huge, just little changes that I think will reduce my anxiety, make my sleep pattern better, and generally make me feel better about myself. Here’s hoping!
That’s all for now. I hope to see more of you all this year.
Thanks for reading!
