2013 went incredibly fast, didn’t it? It felt like just yesterday I was celebrating last christmas with my family. Every year so many people make new years resolutions, but I’ve noticed rarely anyone sticks to them. I don’t normally decide on things I’m going to change each year (I like to deal with my problems as they happen, instead of waiting until January), however this year I think I will set myself some goals. They are not things that I want to change, or things that I want to stop doing, instead they are things that I want to start doing to try and better myself.
For the past couple of months I’ve been thinking long and hard about the aspects of my life that I feel the least happy with. The main ideas I came up with all pretty much relate to my health. The rest, college.
The first thing I want to start doing is to exercise for at least 2 hours a week. I think that’s what you’re meant to do anyway. I found an amazing website that has workouts on it for targeting all areas of the body, at all different strength/flexibility levels. Its called Fitness Blender , and it’s something definitely worth looking at. Best of all, its completely free! I want to start exercising more so that I can become more flexible and strong. I don’t want to lose weight, it would just be nice to feel a lot better.
The second thing is to start doing yoga. I’ve wanted to do it for ages, but I’d never decided on when to start and what I’m actually going to do. I’d looked at it on the internet a few times, but the majority of yoga websites seemed to vary in what ‘type’ of yoga it was. I didn’t even know there were different types! But now I’ve finally found a decent website with free yoga programmes on it for all levels. Hopefully in doing this I will achieve things such as feeling more energised/ better sleep/ less stress.
The third thing is something I don’t really have a choice over. I need to make sure I am in college literally every single day, even if I’m dying. The amount of time I missed from college nearly resulted in them kicking me out, and now I’m trying to keep my attendance the best it can be so that hopefully they won’t make me pay for the exams as well.. which is ridiculously expensive.
I hope I start feeling benefits soon!
