20 resolutions for 2020

2019 flew past in a whirlwind. It was a great year, so going into 2020 I want to keep the good times going! To set me on the right path here are my 20 resolutions and goals for 2020.

  1. Cook more meals from scratch and cut down on buying pre-made food (ready meals especially!)
  2. Be more consistent with exercise – I always make the excuse that I am too busy but I enjoy exercising and should make the time for it.
  3. Finish a book at least every 2 months (this is maybe a bit optimistic considering I read a total of 3 books in 2019…)
  5. Cut down meat consumption
  6. Create more sustainable shopping habits – like buying second hand where possible
  7. Get back into swimming
  8. Go on holiday somewhere hot for a week of proper relaxation (and book reading…)
  9. Blog more consistently – rather than 3 times in one month then not at all for 6 months
  10. Don’t drink to excess! I don’t drink often but when I do I have a tendency to not know my limits…no hangovers here please.
  11. Get a good grade in the last module of my Marketing course
  12. Be kinder to people, let the annoyance go
  13. Be more focused
  14. Do a yoga practice once a fortnight
  15. Keep all my plants alive (so far so good – touch wood)
  16. Make healthier food choices when eating out
  17. Get my hair done more than once – especially now I have highlights!
  18. Talk about things that bother me instead of internalising them or playing them down.
  19. Go to bed earlier
  20. Stick to at least 10 of these 20 goals and resolutions… Got to be realistic!

Have you made your New Years’ resolutions yet?


20 Resolutions for 2020: An update

At the start of 2020 I very optimistically set myself 20 New Years resolutions, and as we enter the final month of this unprecedented year I thought what better time to look back and see if I actually achieved any!

What I read in 2020

One of my resolutions for 2020 was to read more, I set myself a goal of 10 books over the year and I have succeeded! So here is a round up of everything I read.
