17 Resolutions For 2017

New Years is the perfect excuse for making better habits.

It is officially 2017! After the mess of a year that was 2016, I definitely wanted to take the new year as an opportunity to strive to be a better person. There are so many aspects in my personal life that I would like to perfect or better, and the new year is a fantastic opportunity to begin working on the such things. I feel that there are many New Years resolutions that are common among all people including exercising more, eating healthier, and practicing self-care; so, I have compiled a list of 17 resolutions that I would like to accomplish in 2017 in order to inspire others who share some or all of the same goals.

1. Say yes to more adventures.


I spent the latter half of 2016 studying abroad in England, which was an adventure that was completely out of comfort zone. However, this experience helped me grow as a person. In the new year, I would like to do a lot more of what makes me uncomfortable.

2. ...but be comfortable with saying no.


Although saying yes to new things can be eye-opening growing experiences, it is important to learn to say no to things that bring you stress.

3. Take more time to relax.


As a working college student, I tend to have a lot of responsibilities and due dates that flood my life with stress and anxiety. I feel that I definitely need to learn how to relax and take time to practice self-care.

4. Eat a cleaner diet.


Eating clean is something that I would like to practice during the new year, because clean diets have been found to lead to clearer skin, less anxiety, and more energy.

5. Work Out consistently.

In addition to eating clean, exercising is key to achieving a healthy, balanced life. Personally, I love running and working out, but I would like to follow a consistent plan during the new year in order to make more time for exercising.


6. Have a schedule and follow it.

Sometimes, I find myself forgetting events or due dates. I think it is important to write important reminders down and create and follow a daily schedule so that you are able to stay on track.


7. Stop procrastinating.

It is extremely easy to procrastinate on school or work if you do not practice healthy habits. In 2017, I am going to try my hardest to develop small habits that will lead to big differences in my work performance.


8. Maintain a better sleeping pattern.

I have a really poor habit of falling asleep and waking up at erratic times, so I am striving to develop a healthier and steady sleep schedule that will hopefully be leaving me feeling energized throughout the day.

9. Read one book per month.

A good way to relax is to read, and I haven't found the time to read a good book in a long time. Also, reading is a brilliant alternative to spending time mindlessly scrolling through social media.


10. Challenge myself to save $5000 by the end of the year.

I found a great plan for saving money (thanks to Pinterest), and I am really excited to follow it so that I can learn how to save and manage my money better.

11. Be more patient.

Oftentimes, I find myself extremely impatient with how certain aspects of my life are panning out, so I feel that it might be healthy to relax and leave some things in the hands of the universe.

12. Unplug more.

Every morning, I wake up and immediately turn to my phone in order to check my texts and social medias. I want to get rid of this nasty habit and spend more time doing healthy activities in the mornings such as reading or practicing yoga.

13. Spend less time in my room.

Sometimes, I feel that life is too much to handle and I don't want to leave my room. However, it is important to remember that everything will turn out fine. Get out and embrace the day!

14. Make my own coffee at home more often.

One of my worst habits is giving a lot of my money to Starbucks. It is easy to stop at the Starbucks drive-thru on the way to school or work, but the money you spend on coffee certainly adds up after a while.

15. Call more people.

If I am unable to talk to someone in person, I certainly result to sending a short text to them. However, I find that it is healthier to speak over the phone if possible; this simple act can help relationships flourish.

16. Spend less money on frivolous things.

The amount of clothes, food, makeup, or coffee that I have spent money on is honestly ridiculous. I should be saving my money for more important things, so in 2017, I would like to be more of a minimalist.

17. Do my best.

All in all, I can draft out my goals for the new year, but the only thing I can do to be a better person is my best. I hope that you try your best to make 2017 your year to thrive!

15 Reasons Why January Isn't The Dullest Month Of The Year

In with the new, out with the old.

4
views

Often times people may associate January as a slow, sad month. However, this isn't always the case. With a new year comes new opportunities, goals and anticipated plans. There are so many things that can occur in one year and January is just the beginning.

Let's take a look at 15 reasons January isn't the dullest month of the year.

1. A new start

Welcome to January, chapter one of twelve. A new start is where your motivation is at its peak. Embrace the new year, make it the best one yet and set new goal to surpass them.

2. The bar for the new year has restarted

The pressure of last year's wins and losses are over, therefore a new bar has been set for the new year.

3. Job opportunities

For upcoming college graduates, or someone looking for a new opportunity, now is your time to start applying. Several businesses seek out new additions to their teams this time of the year.

4. Holiday-stress is over

Everyone can finally take a breather. The holidays are a wonderful time to share with the ones that mean most, but let's all be thankful for our wallets.

5. New habits can be made

If you decide you want to hit the gym and become a better you, do it. If you aways wanted to start wearing a new look, go for it. It's a perfect month for a lot of dramatic changes where hardly anyone can question your sanity.

6. Sales, sales, sales

Everything is always cheaper in January now that the holidays are through! This is perfect for anyone planning to book a flight, catch a bite to eat, online shop and just about everything in-between.

7. Upcoming concerts and line-ups come out of the woodworks

For my festival and concert goers, the time is here! Not all line-ups are released immediately beginning the new year, but if you're lucky some artists and venues will release dates of upcoming shows.

8. Even your favorite artists announce upcoming releases for new albums and music

Anyone else waiting for their favorite artists to release the new music you've been itching for? Luke Combs, Future, Mike Posner, Florida Georgia Line, Weezer, Lana Del Ray, etc. all have scheduled albums releasing this 2019! Plenty more announcements to come, too! How exciting!

9. Catch up on sleep

Now that family parties and holiday get-togethers are over, it's time to catch some Z's. Enjoy the time at home to rest, once the new year starts to catch momentum you may not get much.

10. Cold weather? Not a problem

With no commitment to school (yet), you can still hide away inside in your PJ's. I know it's been my favorite thing to do lately.

11. No guilt with hiding in your PJ's

Everyone is doing the same thing, hiding away. At least you don't have to feel too guilty canceling plans.

12. Bigger opportunities await you

Maybe 2019 is the year you want to buy your own home, add a new addition to the family, or begin searching for that dream job. Whatever goal you have set, it's only a matter of time before you reach it.

13. New clothes

With all those holiday clothes received, gift cards and shopping sprees, everyone has enough new clothes to last the entire month. Yay!

14. Saving money

Holiday shopping is over. This also means going out to eat several times a week and finding ways to spend money can exceptionally slow down. Start a new saving routine to get your funds back into place, it's a great month to start.

15. Motivation is at it's peak

There's no better time to be motivated to feel good and restart than the beginning of a new year.

Cheers to 2019 and the future opportunities to a fresh start of something new!
