I feel like 2016 was my year! It was the first year of my life where I felt like I had hit peak adulthood, like instead of pretending to adult I was actually, well… adulting. I sure hit some bumps along the way but I have learnt so so much and I am so much better for it.

Before I dive into the juicy stuff I also thought it about time I announce that Ash & I will be moving in together in March and I am so damn happy about it and we are going to have the most beautiful Pinteresty home that ever existed. lol.

We’re all guilty of mindlessly scrolling through our social media feeds and it’s such a waste of time which could otherwise be utilised reading intriguing blog posts, fascinating articles and other inspiring content. I often catch myself scrolling through tweets and photos which aren’t contributing anything to my happiness. In order to stop myself from doing this I need to break the habit!

  • I resolve to take a month off Facebook in the new year
  • I resolve to only use social media consciously by imposing a ban and slowly lifting it
  • I resolve to focus on blog growth on no more than 2 social media sites
  • I resolve to avoid mindless scrolling!

This sounds pretty vague as a resolution but it groups a few little things well and is something I need to consider across many parts of my life. Life is so busy and it’s often difficult to maintain a good balance of work, social life, love life, hobbies and family. So sometimes we need to put things aside and focus on what’s really important.

  • I resolve to see my family more often (at least once every 8 weeks!)
  • I resolve to blog once a week every week and to make every post something to be proud of
  • I resolve to do more over-time and to focus really hard on doing the core parts of my job role really really well
  • I resolve to keep on top of household chores and if that means making a schedule then so be it

My reading habits this year have been totally awful! I pick up a book, speed through it in a few days and then don’t find anything new to read for weeks. This habit is down to two things; a. not having anything to read and b. not putting aside the time to read.

  • I resolve to put together a list of ten books and every time I’ve read one I’ll put a new one onto the list
  • I resolve to make use of Goodreads which I used to find tons of books through
  • I resolve to put aside reading time for both me and Ash before bed
  • I resolve to read on lazy weekend mornings

  1. What a great post. I found the point about mindful consumption of media really interesting. I can’t count the amount of time I wastend scrolling through Facebook even though it’s a space that never makes me feel good. You’ve made me re evaluate, I could be having better conversations, learning new stuff and improving relationships. I think I need a break from it too. Best of luck with your goals, I look forward to hearing about your progress!
