Hello 2016! 2015 was a great year for me both personally and professionally. We launched the new website and rebranded and renovated our stores. Jeff and I bought and renovated our first house and we got engaged! With all of these exciting things, life got quite busy. My goal for 2016 is to breathe a bit more and rush a little less. Check out all of my New Year's Resolutions for 2016.
Stress Less, Relax More:
I am the Queen of constantly working or doing something. I literally can’t sit down for more than 5 minutes. There is always something to do. My goal for 2016 is to chill out and enjoy the quiet, calm moments.
I fall asleep with an iPad in one hand a phone in the other (so sad, but so true). My goal for 2016 is to unplug 2 nights a week. Baby steps.
With a wedding this year I have some major health and fitness goals. I am already a workout fanatic but I plan to eat clean in 2016. No sugar, no dairy, no carbs. As a food and chocolate lover this will be tough. I’m hoping Santa brings me a fitbit this Christmas to help me track all of my progress!
Sadly my phone and iPad addiction has led to me reading much less than I used to. I miss reading and am constantly angry with myself for not making the time. By unplugging 2 nights a week I should be able to rediscover my love for reading. Any good book suggestions to start me off?
Call My Parents More:
My mom claims I only ever call her from the car phone. Point taken. I need to call my parents (and friends and brother and everyone) more. Taking just an hour each week will help to stay connected when they travel South for the Winter. I still think it can be from the car?
As a small business owner, I pour all of my pennies back into the business. This year I’m going to try to save more personally and ensure I’m investing it properly. My dad will be happy, right Dad?
