Get ready 2016, here I come

Along with the post “my life list“, I collaborated with Juni Desirée on our New Year Resolutions as well(check out her post). Before we start with my list, I´d love to know what your New Years Resolutions are! Leave me a comment down below or write a post and link it back to me, so I can see! Yay for 2016!
This is your year.
This is our year!
Let´s make it great!
Who´s excited?!?

A few tips beforehand for really realizing your resolutions:

  • be as specific as possible (once a week/…)
  • set a date (have the project done by the 2/31…)
  • print your list out and hang it where you see it often (the fridge is a great spot;-))
  • don´t go overboard like me, keep the list simple
  • set aside a specific time each week or each day to work toward your resolutions, e.g. 30 min every Sunday
  • lastly, don´t pressure yourself to hard, be disciplined, but also understanding with yourself and kind

Let´s start with my New Years Resolutions for 2016:

  1. Love it so much! What is the 30-day split challenge? Also, I’m yet to do my specific 2016 goals post even though I’ve been writing a lot about 2016 – sorry if it was confusing. When I post my 2016 post, I’ll link to this one but might not be for a while since I’m going away tomorrow for 13 days.

    1. Thanks! I´m glad you liked it!
      It´s a challenge in which you stretch specific muscels everyday for 10 minutes and the goal at the end of the 30 days is to be able to do the splits.
      Oh ok! No worries! I´ll just adjust the link then. Don´t stress yourself! Have an amazing holiday and a Happy New Year!! XOXO


    1. That´s a great No. 1. I might need to add that to mine as well… Haha yes, the wisdom of age. But very true. I´m go, go, go all the time too, so I can really relate to you. I hope to slow down with doing the things I put aside this year: writing letters, drawing…
      Thank you:-)

  2. That’s quite the list!! I’ve attempted to schedule and plan blog posts in the last…it worked well once! Lol but let’s face it, I have too many other daily demands. So I gave that up. I like your letter goal. I think I’d add that to mine. There’s something special about a handwritten note. Happy new year to you!!!!

    1. Yes, it is:-)
      Haha same here. It just doesn´t work that way for me!
      Yes, the letter goal is a kind of destressant (is that a thing?!) to get away from the stressful routine that I have… it´s such a shame that no one ever writes letters anymore! There is something very special about it to me, too.
      Happy New Year, dear:-) to a fabulous year full of amazing moments and handwritten letters! Cheers! ❤
