HELLO 2016

Hello and Happy New Year,

Every year must come to an end and a new one must begin. 2015 was such a good year for us, our highlights were becoming home owners and having our first family Christmas in our new home. I am looking forward to what 2016 will bring.

I, along with so many people on New Years Eve will think about making some resolutions...well I don't always make resolutions but I do think it's a good idea to reflect on the year and think about something that I may need to work on. However I do think that having a few resolutions can help you stay motivated so without further ado, here are some of my resolutions so you can make some too.

1. Start an exercise schedule...
I am sure that this is on the top of everyone's list for their New Years resolutions. I hope to schedule to exercise at least three times a week and once I get to a good standard I will increase my exercise.

2. Eat more fruit and vegetables...
This is something that would be good for all the family . Try to add more vegetables during meals times and snack on pieces of fruit rather than foods that are high in carbs and fat.

3. Get more sleep...
Towards the end of last year I was really struggling to relax before bed and was unable to to get a good nights sleep. I need to be getting about 8 hours a night or more and even though I have an 18-month old who teethes I am sure that this will be challenging. But I am ready for it.

4. Do something for me...
I am sure that I am not alone in saying that us parents don't always have many moments to ourselves. Each week I will try and set aside some time for me whether it be a walk, reading a book, take a bath, or even squeezing in a nap. Me time, me time, me time!

5. Drink more water

It is so important to keep hydrated and I for one am guilty of not drinking enough. This year I have even downloaded an app so I am able to monitor my water in take.

6. Think positively and keep an open mind

I am a pretty positive person, but some days I let things get me down especially if they don't go exactly how I want them to, so I want to be better at not worrying about these things.

7. Don't stress

I guess this know relates to the previous one. Some days when I get really busy I can find myself getting quite stressy and I just need to try and be positive and think that life is just too short to be feeling that way.

Even though making changes can be hard, especially when you are trying to create new healthy habits. Instead to trying to change everything at once try an aim to make one small change at a time. You don't want to be defeated before you've even began! So good luck.

Do you make resolutions?

  1. You read my mind with these particularly the getting more sleep and thinking positively (which I think are linked anyway)! #justanotherlinky

    1. Hi, now sleep is definitely something I need to do, as I don't like getting moody. Hehe. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and commenting lovely! ;)

  2. These are really similar to my own - here's to us both sticking to them! :) #binkylinky

  6. Hi Kelly-Ann, these look very similar to my resolutions to 2016. Good luck with them. I have broken all of them already, but I am still working on them. All the best for 2016. Pen x

  7. Instead of calling them resolutions I am calling them goals this year. Small steps to large goals that I want to complete. Some of yours are similar to mine. I think we all strive to get healthier every year and then somewhere just get off track. But this year I have decided to try the approach differently. And rewarding myself along the way as I complete each tiny step. Thanks so much for sharing with #momsterslink. Hope to see you again tomorrow 💌Trista
