New Year’s resolutions seem to be hit and miss with some folks. I have friends who swear them off, saying that they only cause you to feel guilty and prevent you from being happy with yourself. Others think that resolutions are a wonderful way of keeping yourself accountable for things you would like to do in the upcoming year.

I fall between these two trains of thoughts. I love making lists and figuring out what I can improve in my life, but I don’t tend to do hard and fast rules on when I can accomplish those goals. Maybe the correct word would be ‘intentions’ rather than goals. Overall, I really like myself and I don’t feel like I need to change a lot in regards to who I am and how I live my life. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t need to drink more water or stop looking at my phone when talking with friends or moving more in my everyday life (thank god I have a standing desk at work).

These are some of the intentions I’ve been trying to follow this year:

  • Spend time with the people I love, without the phone
  • Continue to grow both personally and professionally – vague, yes, but these are my intentions, I can do what I want!
  • Healthyish is the key word here, not perfect
  • Once a month, try something new
  • Walk as much as you can
  • Nature is your friend, spend time with it!
  • Be grateful
  • Drink more water

No matter what, the most important thing is to start.
