New Year Resolutions: My word for 2016…

Happy New Year!!!!!

Hope you had a great night last night and your little ones did too ;-).

New Years Resolutions 2016

I realised a long time ago that New Year’s Resolutions don’t work for me. Instead I set myself a word for the year and try to refer back to this as much as possible.

My word for 2015 was “Inspiring” and the year really lived up to this!

As I said at the beginning of 2015 “2015 is going to be the year that I take it to the next level…”. And I did.

I’m not completely there yet, but I still have LOTS of plans for NHM and for my family and I and I am hoping to have lots of these things come to fruition in 2016.

I’ve spent a lot of time over the past month thinking about what my “word” is going to be for 2016. It’s been a choice of three: Simplify, Abundance or Health.

I’ve decided that my word for 2016 is going to be “Health”. If I could have two words it would be “Positive Health!”

I’ve neglected my health for so long and it’s time I started to look after myself, from a health and fitness perspective.

I am really overweight and I feel that this extra weight is holding me back from doing all of the awesome things that I want to achieve over the next few years.

I re-joined my gym in the middle of 2015 and I’ve loved getting back to swimming and doing the odd cycle ride. I want to focus on being more active in 2016 and I really want to do a “big” cycle ride in the middle of this year.

I trained for the London to Brighton Bike ride in 2006 and although I didn’t actually ride it in the end (bit complicated to explain ;-)), I loved doing the training and I want to do some more fundraising so this seems like a good combination.

I also really want to learn to meditate. It’s something I’ve dabbled with over the past few years so I’m setting myself the goal of downloading some meditation tracks and using them a couple of times a week.

I want to really focus on my health because generally I have brilliant health and I want to keep it that way!

    What a fabulous idea Louise and what a great goal for this year! My word for this year is growth, of my own personal development, friendships, business and many more areas. There’s so many things I want to work on this year and really start to spread my wings more and start achieving my goals rather than just dreaming about them. I wish you all the best on achieving your health goals this year 🙂
