2015 is going to be a fabulous year for you! Set out with the right intentions, be positive and make this your year! I get so excited at new year because I love fresh starts! I am a fan of resolutions and I make them every year but also believe that every single day can be a fresh start and new opportunity to set goals, be healthier, be kinder and chase dreams! So if it gets to January 8th and you’ve given up on all your resolutions then take a deep breath, re-focus, re-evaluate and start a fresh on January 9th!
I’ve set myself some personal resolutions but also 4 health resolutions that I wanted to share with you as I know you CAN keep these ones! New years resolutions normally go to pot when they are too open and broad like “I will drink more water” or “I will lose weight” or “I will join the gym”. You need to be more specific, break your resolution down so that it’s more achievable. In my video I talk through the 4 resolutions I’m making which are actually quite standard common resolutions but I’ve made them more specific with regards to how I’ll achieve them, what time of day, how much etc…
1. Drink more water becomes “I will take a glass of water with me to bed and leave it on my bedside table to drink first thing in the morning before I do anything else”
2. Read more becomes “I will put my phone away and read at least one page of a book right before I go to sleep”
3. Eat more greens becomes “I will have a large portion of greens with 2 of my meals a day”
4. Do more yoga becomes “I will do 5 sun salutations every morning”
Some of my other tips for new years resolutions is to think about what it is you really want to achieve, what makes you feel amazing and what you want to do more of? Don’t set too many, 4 to 5 is more than enough and it’s manageable. Write them down somewhere you can see them every day. I look at my diary every day so I’m going to make a little tally chart with four columns to tick if I’ve done my resolutions that day.
I’d love to know what new years resolutions you are setting this year in the comments and I can help you break them down. May your coming year be filled with love, magic and madness!
Love, Lottie x
