my nye resolutions


It’s crazy to think another year has once again passed (crazy, right!?). To be completely honest, I’m not the biggest fan of setting resolutions on new years. In previous years, I noticed I would set unrealistic resolutions and being completely upset when they fail a few weeks in. So this year, I decided to not only share what my new years resolutions are, but also a plan on how I will accomplish each goal to ensure that they are realistic. Here are my new year’s resolutions for 2019!

Resolution #1: Drinking more water

I’m a sucker for sugary drinks, coffee with A LOT of sugar, and lots and lots of wine. Sometimes I drink so much of everything, but water, that I get really bad headaches due to dehydration.

How will I accomplish this:

  • Bringing a reusable water bottle everywhere I go!
  • Challenging myself to drink at least four bottles of water every day
  • Opting for tea instead of coffee on some mornings
  • Consuming lots of fruit and veggies to “eat” my water!

Resolution #2: Get moving at least 3 times a week

I am the master of planning, except…when it comes to planning to exercise. Why? Because I honestly do not enjoy it! I would much rather sit on the couch with a bowl of popcorn with an episode of New Girl than go for a run (no thanks). But, exercising is important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only does it help you physically, but also mentally. It helps you de-stress and clear your brain.

How will I accomplish this:

  • Setting an expectation to get moving at least three times a week.
  • Not committing to a gym, but something that doesn’t feel like I’m working out, like taking a walk, going for a hike, or having Zumba dance parties in my apartment.

Resolution #3: Embracing mindfulness

Around the holiday time I had a strange ephihany; life is going by way too quickly.
I felt like the days were just going by and I wasn’t taking the time to enjoy every second in the present moment, because I was too worried about the future.
How will I accomplish this:

  • Reminding myself to be present in the moment.
  • Journalling every night (or whenever I feel like it)
  • Taking 10 minutes every night to meditate and reflect on my day

Resolution #4: Being kind to myself

I’m hard on myself. I’m not my ideal weight, I wish I had clearer skin, I wish my wardrobe was “cooler”, I wish I was THAT person.
I have a difficult time accepting who I am.
This year I want to focus on highlighting the features that I like about myself and admiring my accomplishments.

How will I accomplish this:

  • Only allowing positive thoughts to resonate with me.
  • Hearing criticism, but do not let it dwell. Acknowledge it and let it go.
  • Do fun little things to make ME feel good! Whether that be buying myself flowers or putting on a face mask.

Those are my new year’s resolutions for 2019! Tell me down below, what are your new year’s resolutions!?

I hope you all have a wonderful 2019!
