2016Wishing us all Good Health, Happiness & Success.....
I will reign in my spending, I will take up yoga, I will stop eating sweets, blah blah blah………yes these are all things I've considered doing in 2016, but I know these unrealistic, puritanical resolutions would be doomed to be abandoned by February or March. I concede, New Year’s resolutions are perhaps a little cliché and old-fashioned now (oh dear I’m making myself sound old), and they’re often over-ambitious, however, regardless of your views on this annual tradition, there’s no denying that the beginning of January can be an inspirational and reflectional time of year, and can lay the foundation to make some significant changes. Even if you don’t make resolutions per se, I think many people at least consider/reconsider their goals and intentions for the New Year ahead - I know I do!
I don’t personally tend to start the year with restrictive ‘resolutions’, however, I was recently reminded about the idea of a vision board, which is a board filled with images, words, quotes and statements that visually represent what you would like to attract to your life. I had been encouraged to do one specifically for my business, but not for my life, therefore completion of my lifestyle vision board is on my things-to-do list for this month; it’s an organised, chaotic work-in-progress at the moment, and the ‘visions’ focus on three central themes of good health, happiness and success: I intend to continue to look for exciting approaches to improve my health; I’m aiming to continue focusing more on acknowledging and being grateful for the positive things in my life, whilst creating new opportunities for happiness; and I aspire to continue to develop myself personally and professionally so that I can be successful at whatever I put my mind to, and yes, be in a position to indulge in a few more materialistic things *wink*. All I can say is it’s a good job I've got 12 months!!
As well as a vision board, I've also decided to keep a memory jar again this year, because, well, I don’t tend to document all my happy memories and experiences on social media or my blog, so I’ll need some other easy, accessible place to store them.
Happy New Year! x
