my 2019 resolutions

my 2019 resolutions

I don’t put too much stock into setting specific resolutions anymore, because I think that sets you up for failure, especially if you try to jump into achieving EVERYTHING at once. So, I set a word of 2019 earlier in the month, and now I’m shaping a few goals around that word.

My word of 2019, if you missed it, is well. Meaning I want to live well, eat well, feel well – and just get closer to optimal wellness, whatever that means for me at whatever stage in life.

I don’t have too much planned for 2019 in the way of resolutions, but there are a few things on my radar:

I will finish the revisions of my novel, EVERYTHING IS MINE, and begin querying.

I will start a new project by November 2019.

I will master habits that I often neglect, like flossing or water-picking my teeth once a day and getting in bed by 11 p.m. on weekday nights.

I will read 52 books, or one book a week.

I will check more books out of the library or borrow from friends, and only buy the books I am most excited about.

Every time new items of clothing or other things I’ve purchased enter the house, I will donate an equivalent number of things I no longer love or use.

I will strive to move my body for 30 minutes a day, every day.

I will work to snack better so I am less tired and “hangry” by mid-afternoon.

I will return my savings account to where it was this time last year.

Do you have any new year resolutions? What are yours? I love to hear about them!
