I know resolutions are stereotypically made at the start of the year to follow through and try your hardest throughout the year to stick to them however I believe it’s great to check yourself through the year and see how you’re progressing and if you gave up you may find giving yourself a reality check is a great motivation to start again.
My resolutions were more goals to reach rather than things to keep up. Even though I find myself succeeding in resolutions I made at the start of the year such as more viewers on my blog and get into the college I want, which both I have succeeded in even though we are over half way through the year. However I felt that some new resolutions needed to be made so I constantly have something to strike for in due course what we have left of 2015.
1. BE MORE ORGANISED
Organisation is a key resolution to me as I now understand how important it really is. With just finishing my GCSE’s I really wish I was more organised from the start, with building revision folders with all the content in and revising chunks from the start I think I would have found myself in a better position and mindset to sit my exams. Therefore I would find more peace of mind being more organised when I start college in September and hopefully will lead to not as much stress time exam season strikes us all again.
2. DO MORE YOGA
Yoga is something that has interested me for quite a while but the thought of standing in my room and doing different stretches made me think that I would look funny, even though no one can see me, what great logic! Tonight I’ve already tried some yoga specifically for before bed and I feel more relaxed than before I completed it. Hopefully I’ll keep it up and I will start seeing a difference.
3. READ MORE
I’ve always enjoyed reading and for some reason lately I haven’t been reading, which I definitely must change because it’s a great way to quickly pass time and engages your brain a lot more than reading tweets. I currently have ‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson’ by John Green sitting beside me, which after this blog post is up I will be picking up and having a read until I fall asleep.
4. DISCOVER NEW MUSIC
Music is honestly one of my favourite things about life and I don’t think when you’re young you fully understand and appriciate the concept of music. When I was little and was asked questions like ‘Would you live without music or TV?’ I would always wonder why people would choose music over TV, and I couldn’t grasp the concept of why anyone would rather listen to music than watch the newest episode of Tracy Beaker. Clearly I didn’t understand. Now these days with the likes of Arctic Monkeys and The 1975 being blasted though my headphones or laptop I am determined to discover some new beautiful music for my ears.
5. LIVE A LITTLE MORE
Finally just to live a little more. Not to stress over everything or be over analytical on everything that happens or goes through my mind. I would love to just head of to London without any structured plans for the day and see what I get up to or what happens. Go out and take photos of the world as cheesy as it sounds and really take in everything around me and appreciate life a bit more. I often find myself worrying over lots of things or taking things out of context which often ends up putting me into a foul mood and no one wants to be around someone like that. Generally to spend a little less time on social media and go out and enjoy socializing or appreciating my family a little more.
Let’s see how much of a positive impact I can make in the remaining five months of 2015.
