Reasonable and Attainable 2018 Resolutions

January 4, 2018

Obviously, we have all come across pages and pages of resolutions going into the New Year, as expected. I was struggling a little with what I was going to choose as a 2018 resolution. I wanted something good but also attainable. I wasn’t going to spend my time trying something that was most likely going to fall through in a couple months’ time. After some contemplation, I decided to break my resolutions up into parts of my life that I really could work on. I realized it’s basically set up like my website, which led me to being grateful I blog in the first place!

Financial Wellness

  • Save up enough money to pay off a year of my car payments. (I must say isn’t very much but it will make me feel more stable if I have this ready to go. I pay about $106/month, or $1,272)
  • Research loans and grants to attend graduate school so I am prepared for the financial burden of a master’s program that could possibly be starting next fall.
  • Add at least $1,000 to my Roth IRA.

Health

  • Sign up for a year membership at my boyfriend’s gym, using their three-months-free deal that they give out once every few months. I have been waiting for this deal and I really hope it happens soon because my gym membership is about to expire.
  • Attend a yoga class at least once every couple weeks. I find that my mental state goes up when I take some time to go to a yoga class and focus on myself and my energy.
  • Take more baths. I really do spend so much time running around that I don’t have enough time to spend reflecting on my own health. I took a bath last night and realized how actually calming it was, put my ears past the water line and just listened to the sounds coming from the floor of my house.

Education

  • Finish applying to graduate schools, and attend as many open houses as possible.
  • Volunteer at a local company that gives children speech therapy using a Speech-Language Pathologist. I need to work more with students with speech disorders.
  • Get a 4.0 in all my online SLP-OPS courses this last semester.

 

What are some of your New Year’s resolutions?

    Great goals! I have a couple, but one of mine is to focus. Instead of scheduling a ton of tasks in a day, I’m only picking 3 major priorities. I’m trying to cut back on things that are interrupting my focus, such as television.
