Looking Forward To A Fantastic 2015!

It’s 2015 and I’m looking forward to a happy and healthy year ahead! There’s no better time to be happy than right now, because if not now, when? January is as good a time as any to re-evaluate, prioritise and make changes, however, I will not be making New Years resolutions per se, I just want to be a little more proactive about a few important things, which among others, includes…

More Yoga
I sometimes struggle to keep up a regular yoga routine, especially when work and socialising get in the way.  Ideally, I would like to practice yoga at least three times a week, whether they be ninety minute long sessions or fifteen minute long sessions, just so long as they are consistent. Yoga is incredibly rewarding with its benefits extending far wider than any other form of exercise, and most importantly, the deep sense of wellbeing it brings is incredible – it’s like hitting the refresh button for my mind and body.

More Adventures
This can be anything from a micro-adventure (learning new skills, sampling new food) to a big adventure (exciting trips, life changing moments) – life is short and I don’t want to waste a minute of it! For me, everyday should be engaging and bring me something new, interesting, challenging or fun. They say that life is not about the breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away – I’d like to have more of those moments.

Eat Well
I am not interested in diets, they are restrictive and boring, and I absolutely won’t deny myself the foods and drinks that I love! I’m talking about eating nutritious and delicious food, which is wholesome and satisfying. I love to eat out, so it’s important that the places I go serve carefully-sourced, high quality and organic (where possible) food. The same rules apply for when I eat at home too, so I do most of my food shopping at Wholefoods and read all the labels, after all, you are what you eat!

More Sleep
I like to get eight hours of sleep every night – a good night’s rest can do wonders for my mood and physical wellbeing. Furthermore, another great reason to sleep well is that a lack of it has been linked to a greater risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes – and I certainly don’t want to increase my chances of either of those.

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
I won’t sweat the small stuff because it’s all small stuff and getting consumed over small things takes a strong physical and emotion toll over the years. For every challenge or dilemma I have, I ask myself: “Will this matter a year from now?” Chances are, no, it won’t.

Be More Present
To a large degree, the measure of our peace of mind is determined by how much we are able to live in the present. When I allow past problems and future concerns to dominate present moments, I end up feeling anxious, frustrated and annoyed. It’s easy to live as if life is a dress rehearsal but the present is what we have and what we have control over. We should all be thankful for it and take in every moment.

More Quality Time With Family and Friends
It’s crucial to have time to relax, recuperate and enjoy quality time with loved ones. It’s more enriching than anything material and completely invaluable, but also easy to overlook, which is crazy when you consider that family and friends are the most important people in your life.

By being aware of what’s important, making the right choices and being mindful of how I live, my life is more balanced, which ultimately means I’m happier and healthier!

So here’s to a fantastic year ahead! I can’t wait to enjoy each and every day of it!
