So we're coming into the new year, a time for reflection and looking forward.

Apparently, it's been proven that you're more likely to stick to your commitments if you share them, so tell your fellow fukers all about your plans for 2019…

Make it a good one!

I am thinking about saying no clothing purchases for the whole year. Dunno if I can though.

I am doing my best to fill my boots before New year just in case I do try and do it.

Gonna try to limit myself to things that I absolutely love.

At the moment I do so many 30-100 quid "it's alright and/or good value" purchases off ebay or sales or TK that when something really special or a grail comes up, I've got no money.

I did this this year! Other than an Indian wedding outfit and pants and socks, didn’t buy a thing.
Gonna relax it a little this year but not much I don’t think.

I think it will be proper hard work for me. But I got loads of decent gear so it’s not like I need anything.

Sneakers will be the hardest to give up I think. I wear steel
Toe caps all day at work yet I always seem to justify new sneakers

Sounds so difficult to go completely cold turkey though. I might go for 1 item per month kind of thing.

I'm looking to:

- Spend less
- Read more
- Focus on being much more productive
- Drink less (I kinda want to try being Teetotal for a year, but social events catch me out, which is abit of a lame excuse)

Need to stop spending so much especially on pointless shite everyday, and going to try no booze for a good bit.
Also lived abroad now for 1.5 years and plan to stay here I think, and although I can speak the language a bit, I struggle a lot more than I should at this stage and it’s embarassing, 90% cause I’m lazy and gf speaks English. So by August want to be independent with it or fluent.

Learn Swedish, get more consistent in the gym and either go teetotal or stop binge drinking.

headspace everyday for 15 mins. I did it for a month or two this year and rated it after a friend suggested it, but then sort of stopped in dec as the social calendar filled up..

should probably cut down on the booze too - but generally had a good handle on it in the past year

Swimming before work every day is my headspace.

Not exactly practical for most but I couldn't recommend it enough.

Aiming to run 2019km this year, have set the same target for the past two years but have yet to meet it. Have a marathon in a few months which should help. Aiming to PB 5k, 10k, HM and M as well, the half should be easy enough but the other three will take a bit of effort.

Also aiming to read at least a book a month for the whole year, got really bad for spending evenings just pissing around on my phone could easily use the time to read.

my nan list for 2019:
- do veganuary (and maybe beyond)
- get my 5k pb below 20 mins
- move in with my gf in the summer
- read a book every fortnight
- start mindfulness again

Anyone tempted to delete their social media accounts next year? Reading a book about it atm and it’s made me realise how much time I aimlessly piss away on it (no fuk)

+1 for headspace. found exactly the same thing though it’s amazing how inconvenient 15 minutes meditation seems when you’re trying to squeeze it in before work

Notes on a nervous planet by Matt Haig - https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/jul/04/notes-on-a-nervous-planet-matt-haig-review

i'll have to work extra hard in the first 6 months of the year then pops!! we're gonna try veganuary together so that should be do-able
