Happy New Year: Wishes for 2015

Happy New Year

How is 2015 treating you so far?

My year (or – the past week) has been quite relaxing and fun, with lots of catch-up and brunch dates with friends, walks in the woods around our home and plans for the coming year. I’ve been staying at my parents home over the holidays, but tomorrow it’s back to Glasgow to write some exams and then – off to London! I’m both excited and terrified to live and work in one of the cities I’ve been dreaming about for ages and I know it will definitely be a season to remember. 2015 is going to be huge and I can’t wait to start making memories. I didn’t set any specific ‘goals’ this year, but here are a few things I want to start working towards:

1 | Give going vegetarian a serious go this time (instead of stopping again after a week).

2 | Take every opportunity to travel (as long as I can afford it).

3 | When clothes shopping, try and go secondhand or ethical and not buy High Street stuff.

4 | Volunteer locally once I’m back at home.

5 | Connect more and deeper with my friends and new aquaintances.

6 | Move for at least 30 minutes every day.

Did you set any goals this year? If you did, here’s some posts I found helpful in the past few weeks:

    Quite the same here, excepted for 4 and 6. Well, I still decided to bring financial support to a charity that builds schools in India, so even though it is not volunteering, I hope that it helps to make the wolrd a better place. As for the “do more sport” resolution, I don’t need to take it this year since I’ve been going to the gym 3 times a week for a year and a half, so I think that’s not bad right? ;) I’d like to start running again though (and maybe train for a half marathon?… a girl can dream right?) but I never seem to find enough motivation in me for that…

    Also, I decided to refuse plastic bags when shopping and take small steps to reduce my waste, take better care of my skin and hair and health in general (there are things that I should have checked for years now, like my allergy problems) with the use of mone natural/green (and why not homemade) cosmetics and medicines (I am very much into essential oils at the moment), and stop biting my nails (for the 1562th time). And I want to have fun with my new camera, and start weawing too!

      Wow, those are great resolutions (you are right, you definitely don’t have to work out more, although a half marathon sounds like a great idea!). I agree with all of them apart from the nail biting thing, which has never been a problem for me. Good luck!
