I'm a little late with posting this, but better late than never, eh?
For years I haven't really had any new years resolutions, simply because I knew I wouldn't actually do anything with it. But this year I realised that that mindset won't really get me anywhere, so I've decided to give it a try. So here it goes.
1. Live healthier
I'm a sugar addict. I mean, my cause of death would probably be a sugar overdose. And because I'm one of those lucky ducks who can eat almost anything without gaining weight, I eat a lot of unhealthy things. But in the past few months I did gain weight, and I wasn't very happy with it. I sulked and grumbled but didn't do anything about it., not really wanting a diet or anything. I still don't want a diet, but I realised that I should do something about my lifestyle if I wanted to see some change.
I don't exercise at all, as I hate sport. But I knew that just changing my eating pattern wouldn't do the trick. So I started thinking about what I do like, and I came to the conclusion that that is swimming. I used to be a competitive swimmer when I was younger, and I even won a few medals. I've always enjoyed swimming, so I've decided to go swimming twice a week. I've done it last week and I'm planning on getting up at 6am tomorrow just so I can swim. That's how serious I am about it right now.
I'm also counting my calories. I'm reducing the amount of sweet things I eat, but not entirely cutting them out. I also try to eat more fruit. So far I'm doing pretty well, and I hope I can keep it up.
2. Be more productive
I'm really lazy. Like. Really lazy. I procrastinate a lot, too. So I'm trying to be more productive and procrastinate less. Why do you think I've made three blog posts in a week time? Because of this new rule here. I'm trying to spend less time staring at my laptop in boredom and more time being useful.
3. Worry less
Now this is gonna be a hard one. If I have to choose one resolution that is doomed to fail it's this one. I worry about a lot of things, whether it's about an exam or if someone is secretly mad at me. I worry about so many things it's not healthy. But I'm gonna try to change that. I know I won't completely stop worrying, but I'm gonna try to work on the social front first. I'm gonna try to worry less about what other people think of me and try to stop explaining myself. I'm constantly explaining to people why I do certain things in fear of being disliked. But screw that. I don't need to explain myself.
4. Spend more time on my store
I have an etsy store called Curious Crescent, and I'm planning on putting more time and effort in it. My goal is to attend cons as a dealer and just get more business. I love owning a store and crafting things which I can sell, so I hope it'll become a success.
I think that was about it. There may be some more smaller things, but these four are the most important things. I'm not sure for how long I can keep them up, but I'm really gonna try my best.
But for today I've done enough, so I'm just gonna sit back and relax.
Have a nice evening <3
