How To Make The Most Of A New Year!

I love to make new year resolutions but sometimes it is really difficult to stick to them as you probaly put so much pressure on yourself to achieve them and as soon as you go wrong you think, well there goes the resolution. Try to just think, right I need to learn from this and carry on and try to achieve this goal no matter what. Giving yourself by the end of the year or by the end May will put so much pressure on yourself that you are bound to beat yourself up about it. So I thought I would put into a post a few tips on how to make the most of a new year and a fresh start as some may say. I love having a new year to start new goals and challenges, so think of this new year as a book. What do you want in each chapter?

So here are a few tips that help me to stay focused and achieve those new goals, no matter what they are.

1) Stay calm

Easier said than done probably as sometimes it is hard to do so. I am a huge worry head and stress about so much in life but to be honest I probably can just take a step back and think, does this really need so much time to stress about? just take a few minutes to breath and go back to the goal. see what you can do to make it positive and how you can improve the situation.

2) Keep a diary

You can write down positive and negative things in the diary, it probably will help to keep so much information overloading your mind before you go to bed. This way you can sleep well and wake up refreshed in the morning!

3) Exercise 

even if it is for 15 minutes a day it will make you feel more motivated during the week. I love to go to the gym but sometimes you just need to get into a good routine. by doing a few minutes a day you can gradually go out for a run or join the gym. By doing exercise at home and getting into a routine you will know that joining the gym won't be a waste of money as you will have the motivation to go. This is a goal for me too, drink plenty of water and eat more fruit and vegetables. I want to do this so when I book a holiday, I wont feel horrible in my bikini, just imagine the feeling of relaxing on holiday not worrying and trying to hide yourself. Changing to eat healthy and looking after yourself will benefit so much mind and body. 

4) Have Fun

2014 for me is all about trying to find new hobbies and traveling. I want to explore more this year and book some holidays. even if it is to Paris I want to do it. Having fun will boost your year, make time for yourself and enjoy the year. I want to make great memories this year!
Do something out of your comfort zone each year and have things to look forward to. 

5) Read more

This for me is important this year as since finishing university I feel as though I'm not using my brain enough, if this makes sense. I want to learn a new skill or just read more often even if it is The Hunger Games! to be fair they are great books!

6) No Worry

I am going to actively try and ignore all worry this year, I am going to turn everything into a positive. If I feel stressed I will go for a swim at the gym or read, just something to block out the negative. Training my brain to block out negativity, easier said than done right? 
I had a great year last year but this year I want to change a few things like we all do each new year. 

7)Do something nice for someone else

 Taking some cakes into work or donating to the dogs trust? just make someones day special by doing something nice :) 

8) goals

set yourself goals but don't set yourself ones that you know are impossible to do. Set goals such as eat healthy but then don't beat yourself up about having a meal out that involves food that you banned. Try to aim to eat one vegetable a week then build it up so that you don't  loose track of the goal. Take in stages instead of going full on with the goal, start small. 

10) Enjoy each day and smile 

Make sure you just enjoy 2014!
