Happy new year everyone! I hope you had an awesome celebration
This year I’ve decided to go easy with all of the resolution stuff. I’ve accepted the fact that I won’t turn into a marathon runner or a vegan chef, but I know that I can make small changes to do better. Here’s what I’m hoping to do:
Treat my body better – I know I hate going to the gym, but I love doing yoga. Luckily Alex got me a yoga membership for Christmas so I’m good and ready go start going to a little yoga studio that’s right by where we live. It’s not only good for the body but also for the mind, I’m trying to be more calm and zen this year. It’s easy to get stressed out in a busy environment where everything around you is always go go go, so I really want to start taking the time to sit down and find peace and quiet.
Treat my skin better – I’ve been trying to do better with sunscreen, and my recent visit to the dermatologist has definitely helped stir me in the right direction. I’m hoping to be less lazy with sunscreen this year because it’s very important. I also want to get a good summer hat because I currently don’t have one. I’ve been getting really into face masks, especially the overnight ones, so I will have to share that with you also. Finally, I’ll try to drink more water which is good for both the skin and the body. I feel like I’m always trying to drink more water but this time I’m actually going to force it upon myself!
Treat myself better – I feel like I’m at the point in my life where I’m slowly accepting certain facts about myself that I cannot change. It feels like a great relief because constantly wanting things that you’ll never have is kind of exhausting. Like the fact that my thin hair won’t ever be thick and luscious, or the fact that I’m pale and I wish that I wasn’t. I also won’t ever get taller, I’m stuck being 5’5″ and that’s okay. We can’t all be the same and we have to embrace what makes us unique!
So I’m hoping for a good year filled with positive improvements that will benefit me without stressing me out and making me feel like I failed if I don’t achieve them all. The most important thing for me is to be happy and healthy, and to make sure others are also feeling the same way!
Do you have any resolutions?
