Everyone makes them, few stick with them.
I never really make resolutions, per se. I like to just have some goals to start off the New Year right.
My number one goal is to not be so anxious all of the time. I suffer from panic attacks and these have been debilitating for me at times. I am very much a "doom and gloom" type of thinker and often always think the worst instead of being optimistic. I worry about things and events that haven't even happened, and in turn, the worry makes me extremely anxious all of the time. I am really working on being more of a "calm" and collected person and not being so anxious.
I would also love to be a more tidy and clean person. I absolutely love when my house is clean, but I hate cleaning with a passion. If I could just work on picking up clutter and things that I just throw down, I bet it would be much easier to keep my house clean!
For someone that has anxiety it's pretty stupid of me not to work out, but I don't work out AT ALL. Nada. I walk my dogs when the weather is nice, but that is a rarity this time of year. I want to get back into some sort of yoga or aerobic activity.
On that same note, I have to start eating better. I recently had a physical and I complained of being fatigued a lot of the time. The doctor asked me what I ate during a typical day. My answer was, "coffee for breakfast, maybe some cookies or cake around 2 pm, then pasta or something for dinner". She looked at me and said, "well, you wonder why you're tired a lot?". Duh. You are what you eat! I haven't had any caffeine since last Saturday and I'm hoping to be able to give it up all-together. I am trying to drink only water. Hopefully I can be a heathy eater in 2011!
I would also like to find a church and start attending regularly.
What are some of your goals for 2011?
