2017 New Year's resolutions

I don't usually believe in New Year's resolutions as I feel like I set myself up for another year of disappointment... But here we go anyway!

2017 New Year's resolutions

Dedicate more time to my blog

I'm determined to get a real schedule together for my blog in 2017. As it stands, I've just been posting as and when I can - which is totally fine, since I work full-time as well as blog, I just don't always have a lot of time to dedicate to my blog. Hopefully, this year I can plan my posts properly so people know what to expect from me and my blog.

Read more

I hate to admit it, but technology and social media does take over our lives a little bit. I used to read tonnes but don't seem to make time for it any more. I'd like to rekindle my love for reading this year!

Keep learning

Since I left university, I've felt a bit stuck in a rut in terms of challenging myself academically. I know my job like the back of my hand - I don't really learn anything new and I feel like my brain is going a bit stale! I am planning to take a social media & digital marketing course through work in the New Year and I'd also like to see what other courses and qualifications I can do. I want to keep learning so my brain doesn't go all foggy!

Try to be more positive 

Yeah, easier said than done... But I'd like to find ways to introduce more positivity in my life. My general outlook on life is less than ideal - I'm pretty cynical. I am going to work on my own mindset and hopefully feel a little happier and positive as a result!

Make more time for my family and friends

Next year, I'll be going through a few changes, as I am moving in with my boyfriend! It's all scary and exciting, but I am determined to not let this distance me from my friends. I refuse to live in his pocket! I have also noticed I am not great at visiting my family as often as I should, so I am going to make more time to see my parents and siblings in 2017.

Surprise myself

In 2017 I am determined to do one thing that I never thought I'd do. I don't know what it is yet, but I have a few ideas! I'm thinking about potentially starting a YouTube channel (eek), or travelling somewhere far away and battling my fear of flying. Maybe I'll write the novel that I have always wanted to write. Who knows! I want to surprise myself in 2017 and prove that I can do anything!

  1. These are some great resolutions! I too plan to make more time for my blog in the new year. Another resolution of mine is to learn a new language.

    1. Oh I love that! I've always wanted to learn Spanish! Which language would you like to learn?
