2018 New Year’s Resolutions that you can actually KEEP!

NEW YEAR, WHO’S THIS?
New Year’s Day was my mom’s favorite day to declare that she was going to have a better year when I grew up, and now its my annual ritual. So many people are using the word “GOAL” instead of resolution but its the same damn thing. We all want to do better, be better and feel better so I made a video all about it, HERE. Are you pro or anti New Year Tradition?
WEIGHT LOSS
I have spent most of my adult life struggling to get myself to the gym and it wasn’t for me. I tried every kind of workout and I could never stick with it. I kind of just like to wake up and figure it out as I go so taking walks to different points in the city with my dogs, or my son, works best for me. I had a gym membership for 2+ years and I only went maybe a total of 1 month of that time. It doesn’t help that I have extreme anxiety so being in social settings hinders my ability to stick around.
PLAN
Time management is not my strength. I am late to everything but business meetings and church! Using a planner, making a list or setting reminders on my phone gets me everywhere relatively on time. Im the last to arrive and the first to leave…but hey! I show up and thats all that really counts right? I suggest going to TJMAX, ROSS, and Homegoods to pick up some cute and affordable notebooks, pads, and planners to keep you motivated!
TRAVEL
I plan a few trips a year for me, because to be honest Kris HATES to travel. I hope to break him in one of these days! We are going to Mexico this spring and I can not wait!! I booked through Expedia and they have a great deals! I also got a credit card through them so when I make every day purchases (gas, groceries, shopping) I earn points towards hotel stays! Also there is a payment plan with cruises! You make a deposit and pay what you can until a month before your trip! Where would you go if you had the choice? Jude wants to go to London, England.
POSITIVE THINKING
Mindfulness is something I encourage my son to tune into daily. As he gets older, I respect the things he enjoys and things he does not…with limits. Staying Positive is essential to living a healthy and productive life. Negativity is second nature when you have depression and anxiety so the struggle is real! In my video I mentioned the book THE FOUR AGREEMENTS has changed my life, and its one I read over and over. My favorite part is not taking what other do and say – personal. Im so sensitive and I take everything personal haha so it helps! Read it and thank me later!
Hopefully you all have a beautiful 2018 – Positive, Strong, and Successful!
Thanks for reading!
