I’m generally not very good at resolutions because willpower is hard. Which is why this year I am going to focus on creating new, positive lifestyle changes, instead of trying to alter my current “bad” habits. And hopefully in the process, I start to embrace my “flaws” and stop the internal criticisms.
Here is what I want to do more of in 2019:
Not everything is a crisis. I’m going to allow myself to pick and choose what areas of my life I want to spend the most energy on.
Life is way too short to feel self-conscious/gross/angry/jealous/stale/etc. If I’m not in a positive situation, I’m going to do what I can to make myself happy.
Trust my instincts.
I’m going to listen to my intuition and stand firm in my decisions. I know what’s best for me and need to start believing it.
Add more green.
This means two things. 1) Add more plants to my living space because they are good for mental health. 2) Add more green things into my diet because my insides are reflected on the outside.
Take more naps.
Sleep is healthy and good for the soul. If I’ve had a hard week and I want to take multiple naps over the weekend, then that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
