Why I’m Not Setting New Year’s Resolutions…

Okay, so it’s 2018!? Where did the time go? It barely feels long since it was the start of 2017 and I was sat down filming my New Years Resolutions 2017 video! But if you ask me if I remember them or if I stuck to them, well no I didn’t, and by the end of January I’d probably forgotten most of them! But was 2017 a bad year because of that? It definitely wasn’t! 2017 was such a good year and I don’t want to put pressure on myself to change — I’m happy with the person I am. I think sometimes we don’t need to focus on all the things we aren’t good at and need to change, and we should start to focus on the things we’re already good at. Like don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be fitter and healthier, but it’s just such a cliché and I just know it won’t last as I’m just not that person, unfortunately!

January is always a hard month when you see tons of New Year’s resolutions blog posts flying around and it’s easy to feel pressure to compare and set all these resolutions, but the thing is, if you’re generally happy and don’t feel the need to then you 100% shouldn’t.

Although I’m not setting New Year’s resolutions I do have a few goals I want to hit in 2018. I feel having a few goals to work towards is nice rather than having resolutions where you need to change your way of life to achieve them, if that makes sense.

So I just wanted to write a post to remind people that there’s no pressure to set yourself goals and resolutions. If you enjoy setting them then great and I think you’re amazing that you can stick to them, but this year, they’re just not for me.

What are your thoughts on New Year’s resolutions? If you do set them then I wish you lots of luck!

    Every year I feel inspired to change a few things in my life, get fitter, eat more healthy food, get more organized. … rah rah rah and never do it. I do feel good thinking about it and enjoy making plans, but a week later it’s gone, forgotten…..until next year 😊
