I’ve always thought of that phrase as cliche… “New Year New You”! I refuse/d to believe there could/can be a new you every. single. year. But then upon discussion with a friend, I came to realize that there’s no need to knock anyone’s spirit. If the start of a new year signifies another attempt at being a better person, by all means spread your wings and fly!
On that note Happy New Year Everyone! This year, I’ve decided to hop on the bandwagon and get aligned some new year’s resolutions. Aside from the usual career aspirations, I’ve decided to try and live a little healthier. The aim is to look better, feel better and live better. This year, I’m working on my B.M.S- Body, Mind and Spirit.
Body– I’m a lazy person if not intellectually, then at least physically. My idea of a good workout is heels on a Monday morning (gotta work those pins) and laughter on a Friday evening (so necessary for my abs). But it’s 2014 and so I’ve taken up tennis. So far I’ve been playing every other week and it must be said that I am a legend in the making. LOL.
I’ve also decided to work a little bit harder on my skin (my face in particular) and so I’m making it a habit to wash my face every evening and exfoliate or use a mask once a week. Slow but steady progress I say.
Mind– I believe in the power of positive thinking, I believe in self-development and I’m working on self-discipline. It’s all self explanatory really, but I’m going to start with the little things. Setting my alarm for 6:30 and actually getting up at 6:30 as opposed to 7:00 is an excellent start.
I also recently downloaded Lumosity and I’m loving it. It works on my brain performance particularly speed, memory and attention and it takes up little to no time every day.
Spirit– This year, the dream is to pray more, meditate on the word more and walk in faith. Heaven is the goal after all and so I will be dedicating some minutes to God everyday. Baby steps will eventually translate to a leap of faith!
What are your resolutions this year?
P.S I had shellac nails done yesterday for the first time ever. I’m in Love!!! Perhaps I’ll add a little bit of pampering to my New Year’s Resolutions
