I stopped setting myself New Years resolutions quite a while ago, however I know the New Year is a good time to try and gain particular habits. Last year I wrote A Letter Of Encouragement To My Future Self In 2022. – This year, I wanted to write what I’d like to accomplish by this time next year so I can look back and check off what I’ve managed to complete. Kind of like a resolution, but also no pressure. 2022 is a year of growth for me, a year of working on myself and becoming the best version of me that I can be. Don’t forget to share with me what you’d like to achieve by this time next year.
Become more organised:
Becoming slightly more organised has been something I’ve been trying to achieve for a while. I used to write in a day to day diary, scheduling in appointments, meetings, writing what I’d done for the week and how I felt. I’ve been doing this since 2016 – this year, I wanted to focus more on my plans and becoming slightly more ambitious with my time. So instead I’ve been gifted with a planner that my sibling got me for Christmas. Smart Planner – by instagram.com/yoursmartplanner
Blog more consistently.
Just from looking at my blog, you can already tell I do not consistently post. This year my goal is to work more effectively on my blog and create a consistent schedule where I am writing more blog posts about my findings through lifestyle and wellbeing. I also want to engage more with my reader friends! Let’s chat and share thoughts!
More real life. Less social media.
This is something I’ve been practising for quite a while – I used to be one of those insta babes who would post a photo EVERYDAY and now I’m ‘more real life, less social media‘. That’s become part of my personal growth as an individual, I no longer seek validation from others online and focus on posting pictures to see how many likes I’d get. I much prefer keeping most things offline and sharing things with my loved ones more or here, on my trusty blog. This is something I want to continue with.
Practise GRATITUDE more often.
As someone who suffers from poor mental health, learning to practise gratitude is beneficial for having a more positive outlook on life. I have also been lucky enough to be gifted a gratitude journal that prompts you to write each day what you are thankful for – although I don’t want to overload myself with things to be writing in at the end and start of each day, I want to include what I am grateful for within my smart planner at the end of each week (Sunday) – once I’ve managed to grasp this habit, I’d start to write in my gratitude journal on a daily basis.
2022 is the year of 25 for me, a quarter of a century! Growth is my main goal for this year, growth in happiness, in wellbeing, in love, in family, in union, in finances and in abundance.
