Well, I did this new year's resolution post before January's done! I call that winning these days. Remote learning is tough, yo!
Let's look at how I did in 2020 first. Usually, I have a few smaller resolutions but last year, in a weird but foretelling fluke as I just chose one. I wanted to focus more on meditation. Using the Headspace app, I'm really proud of how I did on this one. I meditate about 3-5 times a week for 5 minutes. It was a bit more regular but now with the puppy being an early riser, some days I miss it. I enjoy the continued self-awareness, grace and overall well-being it continues to bring me. I've also renewed my Headspace yearly subscription. I enjoy their daily courses where they talk briefly about different things before settling into meditation.
So this year, my word for the year and therefore resolution is LESS. I just feel like we have too much stuff, I weighed down by all of it and we need less... both for the planet and also for our mental well being. I want to focus on consuming less. So for the most part, I'm starting with myself.
I got this idea from my friend Mel on Instagram and loved it. I'd like to commit to buying only 12 personal things for myself for 2021 (I just flipped the number around). This includes ALL articles of clothing, jewelry and shoes. It may not seem like a lot to most people but it's definitely something for me. For the N-sale alone, I probably get myself 12 things. Not included are toiletries and makeup though I'm going to try to use all of what I have before purchasing more. I'm nervous about this and really hope that I can do it.
This also extends itself to other parts of our life. Going to continue to declutter and purge all the stuff that we do have around here that we don't need. Not too many dollar-store visits going forward. Also, committing to reusing items when we can but getting rid of the stuff that we cannot. Another thing that we've started in 2020 and we want to continue, is pantry and fridge shopping. Just lots of less!!
What about you? What are your resolutions? Does buying less resonate with you? If so, let me know what you're doing....
Have a wonderful weekend.
