After looking back on my progress from last year, here are my 2015 New Year’s resolutions:
1: Run 10km/Get fit!
This is something I DEFINITELY must do this year after last year’s fail on the fitness front. It’d be nice to have better stamina, and generally feel better about myself.
2: Take more photos
I love photography. This year I plan to take more photos both with my digital and toy cameras. I just need to make sure I never leave the house without some form of camera now!
3: Knit/Sew/Make more
Fairly straight-forward. I love being creative, it makes me happy and provides a great sense of achievement. It’d be silly not to make more this year!
4: Stay positive/Practise mindfulness
I really improved on this throughout 2014. Here’s hoping that I can make 2015 the year I crack being the Queen of Positivity (or something like that!)
5: Replenish savings
I spent 4 months of 2014 unemployed and lived out of my savings. This year I’d like to replenish the stocks that got eaten into whilst I had my career crisis!
6: Less screen time!
This is something VERY needed. I find myself all too easily drawn into checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the rest when I’m bored. I need to start spending my time more productively, maybe by starting a social networking ban before/after a certain time each day?
7: Buy less!
I am the worst for impulse buying. Easily led by something sparkly or a book that has an exciting cover; I need to reign in the random purchasing. Towards the end of last year I kept a spending diary to try and monitor my spending whilst unemployed and the silly unnecessary purchases are what ate up my savings the most. This year I hope to put an end to that!
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
What resolutions have you made for 2015?
