NY Resolution 1 – Give priority to people who make you feel good

Spend time with positive people

New Year positive quote

We all have them, it’s a fact. Sometimes friends and sometimes family. People who “bring you down”, people who make fun of you, people who give you their opinion whether you have asked for it or not. People that are always miserable, always moaning about something. Keep them at arms length…..you don’t need it!

If you need some extra help with a bit of positivity yourself, see a professional that can help & if local a free consultation with Lytham Therapies might be just what you need?

NY Resolution 2 – do some form of exercise you love

Take up an enjoyable exercise

If you are going to do any form of exercise, do something you love. Something that gives you buzz, whether that be Zumba, Pilates, Nordic walking, tap dancing or Yoga……..and don’t go whole hog buying lessons, equipment or gym subscriptions, just yet. Try it out first.

Believe me it works out very expensive it you work out price per visit or session if you only go twice in a year.  Yes, I’m as guilty as anyone else!

NY Resolution 3 – Try new things, get out of your comfort zone

Shuffle your life

We do tend to do the same things in life, stick to what we know we like. What I have realised recently while using shuffle on itunes, is that I came across stuff I would never have chosen to listen to. I thought I’d try it in other areas of my life. So I watched BBC Four for a whole night, got friends to loan me their favourite books, opened up a cookbook at a random page and baked it.

I’ve been to new restaurants, bars and cafes, closed my eyes and pointed to the menu.  It’s been an experience, and I have discovered new things I love.

NY Resolution 4 – Spend more on memories

Buy more experiences and less “stuff”

New Years resolution, spend time with positive friends
We all have less money to spend on ourselves these days, so we need to spend it wisely, but I have decided I don’t need any more “ stuff”.  What I need is more memories. Whether that be a night at a country pub, or a spa day with friends, a visit to a gallery or a show. Lytham Festival, a Food Festival, a country fair, a weekend in a city or just somewhere I’ve never been.

I truly think that when I’m on my deathbed, I won’t be thinking: I’m glad I had fancy cushions or a Designer handbag, but I WILL remember the great times I had with friends and family.

Oh yes as well as all this, I’d quite like to lose weight and give up smoking as well!
