How I am Going to Own 2018

I always love a fresh start. The new year is a perfect time to make new goals and set new habits! Last year at this time I had just arrived in a different country to study abroad, so my resolution list had to do with me being adventurous, free spirited and to go with the flow. I also made it a goal to get my blog up and running, which I did! But now that a new year has come, I have more goals to strive for. I will make an effort to own 2018 and make it a great one!

  1. I am not going to let myself say I am going to do something, and then not do it. There have been so many times where I have started projects and not finished them. I often let life get in the way of the things I enjoy, but the plan for this year is to make a conscious effort toward sticking to it.
  2. My biggest, and maybe the most challenging goal that I set for myself is to keep a close eye on my budget. I have always been a person who sporadically purchases things that I don’t need, and I spend way too much money. So I have a plan for each month to spend no more than $100. Especially since I don’t have an income at the moment.
  3. My blog is something that has become very special to me. I am hoping to further the success of my site, and hopefully begin making vlogs for my viewers as well! 🙂
  4. Of course it is always smart to work on practicing good habits. Though, it is hard to keep up with a healthy lifestyle sometimes, I find that it helps to keep track of the things you’d like to accomplish in a day! I’ve been keeping a habit – tracker – type -thing since I was a freshman in college, and it helps remind me to do important tasks like take my vitamins, stretch, make my bed, and so on.
  5. Finding new hobbies is one thing that really excites me. Being able to get caught up in something that I like and that interests me is a great way to de-stress. So this year I have made it a goal to work on practicing guitar and reading more often. I used to really enjoy both of those activities when I was in high school, but like I have said, time can pose some difficulty. In order to remain excited about life, I will continue to pick up enjoyable hobbies!
  6. Finally, I am hoping to work toward a year that is a little more relaxed. I tend to get overwhelmed a lot, so I decided that in 2018 I am going to meditate and do yoga every week to practice mindfulness and to calm myself down when I start to feel too high strung. I find that meditating makes my days significantly more productive and fresh.

Now that I have a list of my goals for the upcoming year, and have told you all what my plan is, to hold me accountable, I can now strive for a fresh new year with healthy practices! I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store! Owning 2018 in Sienna Sky style!

What are your new year’s resolutions??
