Reasonable and Attainable 2018 Resolutions
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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
