New Year Resolutions 2018

New Year Resolutions 2018

I have never been a new year resolutions person. Because I go with the flow and end up adapting to the situations that arise. I did have fitness goals this year which ended up in a garbage truck. And I am not at all proud of that. I reached my pre-pregnancy weight long time ago, but my workouts went for a toss. This year, the game will be real. More than fitness, my resolutions are inclined towards self-love and happiness.

2017 has been the busiest year ever. I did not take care of myself or my relationships and the only person I focused on was Ayu. That’s not bad, but it has brought some negative effects on my own health (mental and physical). I fight more, lose my patience more frequently and often sleep unsatisfied with my day. So I sat alone this long weekend and made a list of things that I am going to take care of in the coming year. I am pretty serious about keeping up with these resolutions. Here goes my list.

 1)   Get More Sleep

I have been sleep deprived ever since I became a mother. And getting more sleep means working on techniques to make Ayu sleep better. Hopefully he will this year. Would also make sure to catch some snooze while he naps.

 2) Drink More Water

My skin reveals how dehydrated it is, thanks to the habit of forgetting to drink water. I will make sure that I drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday.

 3) Read More

 To be realistic, I would read at least 10 books in 2018. The books I wish to read are already on my book shelf.

 4) Have a Fitness Regime

Yes, we are back to this. Indoor workouts or outdoor, this year is going to be my best! I am yearning to get fit. This also includes having a better and more nutritious diet. And my motivation is quite high this time. Though I never stopped those evening walks, they are not enough. You are going to hear about this a lot in the coming year.

 5) Have More Patience

 I lose it! And end up fighting with my husband, my maid or my mom. The consequence: Guilt, hard feelings, and hating myself. It all comes from my expectations which are too many from everyone. The main reason I have had failed relationships. And now with my kid, I am sad that I do get angry with him. Though for a split second. I need to work on this. And I will.

 6) Cut the Complaining

This should naturally come when I am more patient. I’m learning to accept life the way it is.

 7) Schedule More ‘Me Time’

 This is the solution to most of my life problems. No body can make me happy, but myself. And I forget that every time. I am hoping to find more “me” time this year. I am planning to try out new recipes this year. Have missed baking a lot.

 8) Stop the Negative Self Talk

 You are a super awesome mama, wife and human being! This is what I will tell myself every day.

 9) Relax More

As soon as Ayu is down for a nap, I start working. And do as much as possible throughout the day. I have actually forgotten what relaxing means.

 10) Get More Organised

 If I get more organised with my day, I might end sleeping well. Planning to change my daily routine so that I can give time to the important things that I have missed in 2017. And thus, achieving my new year resolutions.

In the end, this goes without saying, I will love more, laugh more and worry less ! These are my new year resolutions, what are yours?

  1. A lot of these are on my list as well. I was really bad about not sleeping as much as I should have last year and I definitely paid for it. That one is on the top of my list this year lol.

  2. Your new year’s resolutions are very well stated and if properly done well, it could be change your life a lot better.

  3. great list here that you have, there are so many resolutions. I don’t do resolutions, I set goals and intentions, glad you have something similar.

  4. Drink more water, get more sleep and have more patience are top ones on my list. I drink water as though it were medicine. It is sad to but it is only when I run a few miles that I really drink the right amount of water. I was hurt and so had to lay off running for while but I hope to get back on track in 2018.

  5. Hahaha, of the 10 New Year resolution in 9, I completely agree with you. I hope that you will write in the following posts how you are going with decisions because I will be a regular visitor to the site.

  6. Very inspiring post.Drink more water, get more sleep and have more patience are top ones on my list. I drink water as though it were medicine.

  7. These all seem like very reasonable resolutions you should be able to keep. I too always challenge myself to read more– it accomplishes a lot of the bullet items on your list for me.

  8. This is a great list for the new year. I have incorporated drinking more water every year and now I’m at 1 1/2 gallons daily. Cheers to a great year.

  9. Hello Anchal. I like your list. But if I were you, I would pick a maximum of 3 to 4 of these resolutions. In my experience, it is extremely difficult to manage 10 resolutions. I really love your 1st and 2nd resolution because these 2 are definitely life changers. And I have these 2 as my resolutions for last few years and I haven’t changed them.

  10. Awesome list. I love new years resolutions as an opportunity to be just a little bit better. I’ve made some crunchy goals this year and added to your link up.

  11. Complaining and negative self talk kinda go hand in hand. Once you stop the one the other one also gets better!!

    Good luck for the year ahead <3
