If there is one thing that really makes me cringe its the whole “new year new me” stuff I really hate that term, why are we waiting for it to be a new year for us to suddenly want to be different people? why are we trying to better our
So many times I hear people talking about how they can’t stick to their new year’s resolutions and then beat them selfs up because let’s face it whatever goal you have ever set yourself and failed it does make you feel like shit.
I actually tried to convince myself to set some and I wasn’t going to tell anyone about them because I thought at least if I failed it wouldn’t be like anyone would be judging, like when you tell someone you’re cutting out cakes and chocolate and you get caught red handing and you get the famous words “I thought you were on a diet” and then you feel like a big old fat failure.
I was going to set myself goals like writing more blog posts in 2019 because lets be honest towards the end of last year I really didn’t write that much and not because I don’t love blogging anymore but just purely based on the fact that I was absolutely exhausted, from the end of November I was working 6 days a week for 10 hours a day I was shattered and so many times I sat in front of the computer half asleep writing absolute crap and that’s when I decided I wasn’t going to write again until 2019 when I was bright eyed and bushy tailed after my Christmas holiday.

So I decided that I wasn’t going to set myself that new years resolution because if I do end up having a rough or tiring few weeks and don’t end up writing I wont have to beat myself up because I failed.
I think instead of the traditional new years resolution it would be a much better idea to set yourself one goal a month or even one goal a week and it could be something as simple as going to bed an hour earlier than usual, just small baby steps and these are things that are so minimal that could actually make positive changes, and they are also goals that you are not setting yourself for a whole year ahead a whole 365 days of telling yourself you can’t do this or you should be doing that. I feel like little goals over a week or a month are easier to manage and if they stick then carry them on for the next week and the week after and so on. And if one week I
These little goals are much more realistic and are much more likely to stick, so
So my new years resolution is there is no new years resolution.
Do you like setting yourself a New years resolution? or are you more of a weekly goal setter? let me know in the comments below because I would LOVE to know.
