1. Yoga everyday
My back has really felt my sedentary lifestyle this past year, so I think it’s important to some sort of exercise into my every day. I won’t go overboard at first, maybe just 15 minutes to start and build from there. I love yoga not only for its physical benefits, but also the way it can really calm and focus me.
2. Go zero waste
I’ve already been doing things like using washable cotton pads and trying to avoid wrapping my fruit in plastic. I want to take it further though and start being mindful of how much waste I create. I’m starting by going to grocers and farmers markets instead of big supermarkets, carrying my brand new keep cup and avoiding plastics as much as I can.
3. Cut out dairy
I did a trail run of going dairy free a few months ago. When I went back to dairy I thought that was it, but having thought about it more I’d like to give it another go. At least I know what works and what doesn’t now.
4. Become a fulltime artist
This has been something I’ve wanted forever, so this year I really want to be proactive in it. I have searched for a while at art jobs, but I can never see something that really fits the type of work I do. This means finding freelance work and doing commissions.
5. Go to Japan
I’ve wanted to go to Japan a really long time, but its pretty expensive to travel there. Therefore I’m planning to really pinch the pennies this year and travel to Japan sometime around the end of Spring and beginning of Summer.
6. Be happier
I know deciding I want to be happier doesn’t make it happen, but I’d like to be more positive in my approach to life. I do get wrapped up in my own thoughts, so I’d like 2018 to be more about practicing positivity.
