– Goals for 2016 –

11

I know it’s already more then half of January gone now and I am still lingering on these New Year’s resolutions. It’s just because I find them really hard to keep. This year I want to keep it simple and realistic, whilst not setting myself up to fail. So here are some of mine:

  1. Worry less. I have read an article that made a research on questioning seniors about their regrets, and 90% of them said they regret worrying so much, because most of the stuff they worried about didn’t even matter in the long run. So I will try to remind myself of that next time I am worried.
  2. Change of the mindset. I just want to be a positive person. Yeah, I know it sound rather hard to just do. However, I was working on it already for quite a long time with some meditations, some affirmation, as well as some positive reads. So my goal is to keep trying and maybe even putting more effort to it. I truly believe that you attract positive things when you are positive yourself. Life had showed me quite a few times that this is true, but somehow sometimes I still get sucked in by the negative stuff. I will try my best!
  3. Read at least one novel in German from cover to cover. That will keep my German language learning going.
  4. Travel somewhere new. I would love to visit a new place. I hope the destination will be sunny. Denmark is not so keen on providing the vitamin D people need.
  5. Keep organized. My game on this one is already strong! I am very impressed by the results. I started to keep a calendar for everything that needs to be done and an extra idea/planner journal that helps keep track of my mind which sometimes it becomes very cluttered and messy. I will probably make full post on that. I think it is really useful.
  6. Put some new foods in my menu. I have noticed my menu is quite full with different recipes, however not so much with different ingredients. So I decided I want to try some vegetables and fruits that up until now are quite foreign to me, like sweet potatoes, asparagus, egg plant, dates, etc.
  7. Learn to do at least one pull-up. My upper body and the back are quite weak, so this year I want to make it a little stronger and toned. To be honest, I have never ever in my life was able to do a pull up. Even in school, when I was actually quite athletic. So I decided that at least one pull-up in the end of the year is a good measurement of my progress towards strengthening my upper body and the back.

Happy New Year!
