Happy New Year!!
We're a couple of weeks into 2018 and lots of us will have made a bunch of New Year's resolutions. We asked you what your number 1 New Years Resolution is and consolidated these answers into categories to help you with different ideas.
Our top tip.. keep your New Years Resolution small so that by the end of the year it will become a part of your daily routine.
We've noticed that many of these family based resolutions are good intentions rather than set goals. We love this idea as it takes away all of the pressure and can be naturally enriched into our everyday lives.
- I've set my own well-being strategies, and my #1 is to have more meals with family and friends, together around the table.
- This year I want to focus on living less in my own life and focusing on those around me - my family and friends - who I love and who support me.
- This year was amazing but we have been blinded by our occasional dissatisfactions, silly grumpiness, and unnecessary complaints. This year, we are going to be a household full of gratefulness and shall constantly count our blessing. We are going to set up a “thankful jar” where everyday, each of us will write down one positive occurrence of the day and put that into the jar. By year end, there will be one big impressive collection of happy messages waiting for us to read out together as a family. #1 resolution: be thankful, and complain less! ❤️
- To create as many memories with my daughter and take more family photos!!
