New Year’s Resolutions

I wanted to post these closer to January 1, but it’s been a pretty busy few days. Better late than never.

Last year, I resolved to cook, run more, be a better friend, read through the Bible, and do more yoga… I literally did none of those things. So here we go again, and this first week has been pretty good!

  • Be active everyday: I wear my fitbit and go for those 10k steps each day. I’m currently training for a half marathon, so it’s not too hard.
  • Take a photo everyday: last year my days all blended together, and nothing seemed special. I need to remember what is going on everyday! Maybe I’ll make a mini photo album with all my daily photos… since my scrapbook progress is going slowly…
  • Read the Bible everyday: whether it’s my read-the-Bible-in-a-year plan or something else
  • Write everyday: I’m a writer, so this is important. Most of the time I’m just journaling my thoughts, prayers and progress through this new year, but I’m hoping to add in any stories or poems that I need to put on paper

This episode of Elise Gets Crafty on Creative Habits made me think about the things I wanted to be daily habits – not just resolutions. I’m going to focus on implementing these 4 things beyonds this year, but I have to start one week at a time!

I also downloaded the “habit tracking” app, Productive, which has been super helpful. It’s the only free one I could find that also had 5 stars. My sister is using the same system, but with Lisa Frank stickers in her planner.

What are some of your resolutions?
