New Years Resolutions

It’s the start of a new year, and with that comes the unsurprising continual nagging question of  ‘what’s your new years resolution going to be’ (queue the eye role). Whilst many don their all new gym gear and vow to run everyday, or as others pour away the last remnants of Christmas alcohol with dry January on their minds. Some of us are thinking of some more profoundly enriching goals… 

A new year always leads people into believing that these specific changes to our daily routine will improve us this year, however why not make the resolution of changing instead our mind set.

It’s an all too familiar phrase ‘I don’t have time’. When in reality we all have the exact same amount of hours in the day, the difference is simply our priorities. For many, spending time with friends, family or booking holidays are simply things we ‘don’t have time for’. However instead of saying ‘I don’t have time’ say instead ‘it’s not a priority’.’

How does it feel to say to friends that they are not a priority, or taking a trip for yourself similarly isn’t something you value spending time on. A year flies by and although the idea of physical self improvements is an exciting prospect, something that we can never change or get back, is our time. 

Start this new year by thinking hard about what you want to prioritise and most importantly value them enough to make it happen. Book that trip which you forever put off, spend time immersing yourself in a culture you’ve been dying to experience. Make the most of your time this year and make it a priority.
