HRM’s New Years Resolutions 2019
Now that Christmas is over, and the days are starting to get longer, it’s time for a fresh start. Time to look at your life and decide what you’d like to change. In other words, it’s time for a New Year’s Resolution!
A New Year's resolution is defined as: ‘A tradition in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behaviour, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life’.
Sounds easy enough, right? Well, we will see in 365 days’ time!
Here are some of our team’s goals for 2019:
Ellie: “For me, the start of a new year is always a time for a bit of a health kick and detox after December indulgence! My aims are to cut down caffeine, drink more water, bike to work more often, and bring in lots of fresh ginger to have with hot water – my favourite healthy drink! Not very exciting I’m afraid but I’ll try extra hard to stick to it this year! Bring on 2019…”
Jill: “I want to get back into the habit of getting my photos off my phone and into a photo album! I used to do this all the time and have really lapsed recently – so this new year I am determined to bring back the old-fashioned photograph!”
Simon G: “I'm terrible at making New Year's resolutions, but if I did, it'd probably be to be more active!”
Rich: “To be healthier and fitter in 2019 with what I eat, drink and how much I exercise!”
Laura: “My goal for this year is to read more books. I’ve set myself the target of 30 books this year, and to read 50 pages a day, every day. I run a film adaptation book group, so I read at least one book a month anyway, but I’m limited to books that have been made into films. I’ve got so many unread books on my shelf at home, so I hope this will help me get through as many as possible.”
Simon W: “Mine is to try and lose some weight and eat a bit better… The same as it is every year!”
Isobel: “My new year’s resolution this year is to take a short video of around 5 seconds each day so that after 365 days I will have a montage of the whole year in a short video!”
Martin: “To get fitter!”
Joe: “Mine would be to have less ‘unnecessary pints’ – I tried dry January in 2017 and it was a horrendously dull, depressing month. Although I feel the need to cut down on alcohol consumption, cutting anything out of your diet or lifestyle completely just makes you crave something even more. So, instead of having a ‘dry’ January I’ll be cutting down on ‘snack beers’ for the whole year that could easily be replaced by a soft drink!”
Susan: “To not lock my car keys inside the car!”
