Four Things to Accomplish in 2015



For some reason I am finding it tough to get back into the swing of this new year. I am a creature of routine and habit so it's a bit weird for me to not be able to focus and organize. This is why my annual resolutions post is a wee bit behind schedule. Oh well!

Last year's list worked out really well for me! Putting four things I want to accomplish out onto the internet made it a bit more permanent than just a fleeting thought that disappeared after January so I am doing it again. This year is going to be a little less crafty and a little more healthy. Here's what I want to work on this year:

Morning Routine Overhaul

I wake up at 6:30 every morning, make our breakfasts to go, pack our lunches, get dressed, grab a coffee, and rush out of the house by 7:00. I don't have kids to get ready or anything but it's still a bit hectic and I think sets me up for a tired, lethargic day. This year I want to change that by adding a solid 10 minute stretch followed by a whole glass of water. I've been doing this since I went back to work after the holidays and it's amazing how much better this wakes you up over caffeine! speaking of which...

More Tea, Less Coffee

My stomach wont allow me to have more than one cup of coffee a day. I don't even like it that much and it's just become a habit. I do already drink plain ol' green tea all throughout the day but I want to replace that morning cup of joe and add a calming night time cup as well. I am eyeing these two. This tea for morning and this one for night.

Yoga

I do yoga roughly once a week at home in the past but I want to amp that up a bit. A half hour a week night and a long session sometime the weekend is my goal. I also want to really try some challenging poses and set my mind on practising and perfecting them.

Knit a Pattern


I mean a real pattern pattern. Another knitting post is called for soon as I've actually stopped making 100 mistakes and started to make pieces that you can actually wear out in public! Yay! This pattern is going to be on my to-do list this year!

  1. Great ideas! I definitely need to drink more water.. I got in the bad habit of drinking pop constantly, so I'm trying to replace it with water. So far so good!

  2. These are awesome resolutions! I've been lucky enough to have more time in the mornings at the moment before rushing out the door, and it makes such a difference! And yoga seems like a great idea! Good luck!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful list of resolutions! I especially like the morning routine: I find waking up early to be really productive, even if it takes a while to get used to it. Tea can be much more delicious and rewarding than coffee, in my opinion. My favourite teas are the one by Pukka: http://www.pukkaherbs.com
    Good luck with these in the new year, Shy!
