2019: My New Year's Resolutions!

Happy New Year!
I hope 2019 brings you lots of fun, love and joy. This year I didn't write down my resolutions until the second week of January, as I took some time for myself and to enjoy life before sitting down to make plans. My resolutions for this year will be slightly different than usual - so if you're intrigued, keep reading!

1 - Be mindful and work on myself 
As usual, mindfulness has its
ups and downs. My resolution is to try and find some mindful time for myself everyday, even though life gets complicated. That could be making tea, reading a book chapter, lighting a candle, meditating or baking.

2 - Have a healthy back 
At the end of 2018, I found myself facing a lot of pain and really hit rock bottom. While I've had back issues for years, I'm now hoping to start from scratch and improve my posture while sitting and walking, and exercising in correct ways to get a strong, healthy back. Unfortunately that means I'll diminish the amount of yoga I'll practice on my own as I am currently working on postural gymnastics and pilates, but I'll still keep a few asanas in my morning practice.

3 - Meditate
That's a daily resolution. I can't function without meditation and any time I challenge my body to be without it I can immediately feel the consequences, both in how I feel and in the relationship with others.

4 - Declutter regularly 
Oh yeah. My room has been tidy for the past few months, which has been great - but after having watched Marie Kondo's series on Netflix, I'm feeling even more motivated to declutter every other month or generally more frequently. Bring it on!

5 - Start driving
I hate this resolution but I have to make-it-work. Even though I have a driving license I'm not a fan of driving but I need to start again. Fingers crossed.

6 - Travel somewhere new 
I don't know where 2019 will bring me - but I'm excited to see where I'll end up travelling to!

7 - Read 25 books
This year, I'm raising my reading list from 20 to 25. The next books I'll be reading are Tracy Chevalier's Falling Angels (a book that has been on my list forever), The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry and The Power of Creative Visualization by Vishen Lakhiani.
