New Years Resolutions

There's less than 24 hours until 2016 is finally here and I am more than ready for this fresh start ! I'm so, so excited for the new year and I'm really eager to make a lot of positive changes this year ! Today I wanted to share a few of my new years resolutions and how I'm going to achieve them :)



Resolution One 

Leave a hopeful note ( at least ) once a week

How I'm going to do it : To make sure I stick to this one I'm going to post a picture of that weeks hopeful note at he end of every Monday post !

Resolution Two 

Write in my positivity diary daily

How I'm going to do it :  I'm starting a new series called "The Positivity Diaries " Which will hopefully be a communal positivity diary where we will share the good things that have happened in that week :) It will be posted every Sunday ( starting on the 3rd January ) and you can read more about it in my last post which you can find here ! My theory is, if we do it together then we're more likely to stick to it .

Resolution Three 

Eat more healthily 

How I'm going to do it : When you give your body the nutrients it needs, then you're naturally going to have more energy and be happier ! It's like giving a flower Coca Cola instead of water and wondering why it's dead ;) So I'm feeling very enthusiastic this year and am going to try making new, healthy recipes and would love to share them with you ! So let me know in the comments if you would like to see some healthy recipe posts coming up in the near future :)

Resolution Four

Start swimming again ... and maybe even yoga 

How I'm going to do it : Well I've bought a new red polka dot swimming costume , convinced my best friend to come with me and bought a membership at the local swimming pool and now I'm ready to go ! I've found that you're far more likely to stick to something if you're not doing it alone so this year I'm trying to include someone else ( whether it's you guys or one of my poor friends that I've dragged to a swimming pool ) so that it won't just be me I let down :) I'm also moving house later this year and will be closer to a gym and now my Friday nights have freed up I'm looking into using them to go to a yoga class.

So that's just a few of my resolutions and I am really excited to make this work ! This year Im thinking how would I like to be? How am I going to get there ? Okay this is the action plan ! I think it's a great time of year to improve yourself and become who you want to be and this year, I want to be happy :) What do you wan't from the new year and how are you going to get it ? I'd love to hear from you in the comments !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. Please don't 'maybe' yoga, you should go for it! Well, I can't make you do anything and it is your decision but it is just so fun and beneficial. I started doing it with my Mom when she came from her yoga classes when I was younger. Now I use Jude Reiginier's book daily and...l I can't recommend it enough.

    Happy New Year's Eve!

  4. I think I've commented before on how much I love the idea of a positivity diary, so I can't wait to see how it works out for you! I love swimming so much! (I used to do synchronised swimming) but I haven't been in a real pool for years... doing simple laps can become kind of boring though...
    I'm with you on the eating healthier! Here's to a wonderful 2016 :)

  6. Love these resolutions. I love the idea of a positivity diary, every time I write something in a diary I always seem to focus on the negatives of the day. May have to give this a go!

    1. I kept a positivity diary for most of last year and it was really effective in helping me focus on the good things in my life and as a result I was so much happier ! I would recommend it to anyone :)

  7. You have such great resolutions, and it looks like you're already doing so well! Doing things with friends is definitely a lot easier than on your own. Yoga everyday is so nice as well, and very calming.

    Happy New Years and may you succeed in all your resolutions <3

  9. I love your plan to get others involved Marianne that is such a great way to stick to a goal! Loving your flower/coca cola analogy too ;) I am focusing a lot on Random Acts of Kindness missions too and making it a goal to do them often!
