Hey there, Sparklers 🙂
Today I want to talk about New Years Resolutions. The majority of people now feel that they are a waste of time.. But in all honesty, that’s just because you aren’t setting realistic goals or goals that have a true meaning.
The typical “I’m gonna lose weight and exercise – New year, New Me” is a perfect example of WHY nobody sticks to resolutions. If you jump on the same band wagon at the start of every year, just saying for the sake of it that you’re going to hit the gym hard when you know you AREN’T, is not being realistic at all. (Everybody is guilty of this, even me. I’d say this every year when in reality I’d rather eat a good old cheeseburger).
However, setting yourself realistic goals or goals that have meaning is very important. For example, if you genuinely want to become healthier set yourself a REALISTIC goal like losing a couple of pounds a week and/or doing exercises you KNOW you can do and that you’ll enjoy (there’s no point torturing yourself mentally or physically), so you can feel fabulous for the upcoming event you’re so excited about.
Not all resolutions have to be related to Health & Fitness, they can be anything you want to achieve. Big or small, short term or long term. But you have to remember to be as realistic as possible when setting yourself these goals. Set yourself something so that when you write it down and look at it everyday, you feel determined and you have a “I GOT THIS!” attitude. Anything is achievable if you’re in the right frame of mind.
Whatever goals you set yourself, make sure they benefit YOU. Don’t set yourself a goal just to please someone else. Your happiness is important too. The happier you are, the happier those around you become.
Here are some of my goals or resolutions. I’d love to hear yours, too!
- Eat healthier and exercise more to improve all of my health problems, as well as to get rid of all the stubborn baby fat I’ve had for almost 2 and a half years.
- Do more things that are out of my comfort zone. Having depression, anxiety & OCD isn’t easy, and I may find this torturous at first, but I know that it will help me MASSIVELY in the long term.
- Be more confident in myself (especially in front of the camera). Learn to love who I am and stop doubting myself so much.
- Always be kind. Kindness goes a long way and you just never know what a person is going through or has just been through.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post, and that it has helped you in some way.
Lots of love,
