At the end of every year, I always take time to write down my New Year’s resolutions. I think setting goals is very important. Unless you actually make it clear what your goals are, they will be tough to achieve. If you’re really trying to make your 2018 resolutions happen this coming year, think about making SMART goals. This stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely.
By the time it hits February, it’s easy to let your resolutions slip away…I know. But if you do put in the effort to make your resolutions SMART goals, you will have a lot more luck accomplishing them! I always make sure to tell my close friends and family what my resolutions are, that way you have people to hold you accountable. These people are your biggest supporters and they should be the ones that are there for you every step of the way!
Hair Care Resolution
My first resolution is a smaller goal, but this year I noticed myself resorting to styling my hair the same way most days. Blow-dried straight and worn down. I love trying out cute and fun hairstyles, so in 2018 I want to make sure to do so! Whether it’s going for curled, braided, or updo hairstyles, I want to utilize Pinterest for trying out some new ideas to keep my style fresh!
This past fall I joined the club triathlon team at college! I started doing sprint triathlons in high school and have done four of them since I first began. Now that I am a part of the team, this next year I really want to push myself to become a faster runner. I am stronger at the swimming and biking portions of the race, so now I want to increase my running speed!
I have really been enjoying having my own kitchen this year of college. During the fall semester, I made many different meal preps. These were really tasty! In 2018, I want to push myself to try at least one new recipe each month. Along with this, I want to continue making sure I am cooking healthy meals for myself to nourish my body in the way it deserves.
For now, these are the three resolutions that I have for the new year! We’ll see if I end up adding anything else to my list in the beginning of 2018. I hope everyone has a happy new year and good luck with setting your own resolutions!
