January 2018 goals

Continue exercising. I’ve been doing good in December, going to the gym regularly so I hope I will be able to keep it up going into the new year. 2018 is going to be my best year when it comes to exercise and taking care of myself.

Ditch the new years resolutions. I never keep them, I only get upset when I fail so I figure it is better to just ditch them overall so I can do things in my own time. Facing failure when it’s not necessary really drains you of energy too so I feel like that is an even better argument for ditching them.

Only spend money on necessities. Maybe treat myself on special occasions when I feel like deserve something extra. I have not been good at doing a low-buy period, mostly because it was Christmas and I spent so much money on gifts. But I  hope that it will get better in January or February.

Get back into reading. I was reading way too much in October and November and in December I didn’t really touch a book at all. I was feeling so drained and needed a break but I really hope I will get back into it ASAP, I miss sitting down to read in the evenings.

Decide on what to study. I really want to go back to uni and I found a bachelor degree for international communication and interpretation/translation and that is right up my alley. Hoping I will end up applying for that. I just need to really decide what I want to do with my life. The bachelor degree also includes one obligatory year spent in a foreign country (England in my case) so that is a huge plus.

Try new things. I rarely do that, I just stick to what I know and never try anything new. I don’t know what I would do but I want to stop saying no if I’m asked to do something new, within reasonable boundaries of course.

Spend money on experiences. Along with a low-buy period, I would rather spend money on experiences than things. I really want to travel more, or just get to experience new places, new food and new people. I haven’t traveled in years now and I’m eager to do so.

 

What are your goals for January? Are you doing New years resolutions?

I'm a 26 year old girl from Norway. I love blogging about things like make up, skincare, books, video games, life, home decoration, gardening and whatnot. I love getting to know new people, let's start a conversation!

    Ahhhhh your goals are so exciting!!! I like what you’re aiming for this year – sounds like the type of stuff I’d aim for! Good job with the exercising – I haven’t even exercised once yet 😀 Ooh if you get onto that degree and come to england in a couple years time, know that you’ve already got at least one friend here 🙂

    Great goals. Exercise and reading more are always on my list☺ How exciting about uni. It would be so fun if you was in the UK for a year! I’m on a low buy. I have more then enough so necessities only. Your last 2 resolutions are great. Money is always well spent on travel and experiences😊 x

      hehe being the UK would really be fun! I hope I’ll be able to be on a low buy too. I don’t have too much to use up but I shouldn’t buy so much new either. And yeah I agree, they’re always well spent there xx

    I really wish I can stop spending so much money, that’s one of my main goals for this year. I’ll try to save more money and spend less, but I’m a shopaholic so we’ll see. xx

    Great goals! Reading more is also one of my goals this year, I used to read a lot more but since blogging I’ve not made time to. So I’m making time each day to read something of fiction.
