Living through something as big as a global pandemic may make you think but what do resolutions matter? Why should I bother drinking eight glasses or water per day or setting myself a task of learning the splits? On the contrary. When times are tough and we cannot control the world around us, we need to focus on the small things that we can control. With a set of goals or aims for 2021 to hone in on, you’ll be able to feel like you are achieving something or getting somewhere even if the world (and life as we know it) is still on hold.
If you’ve been around here for a while now, you’ll know I’m not in the habit of making ‘resolutions’ as such – just goals and tasks for the upcoming year. And most importantly, ones that are actually obtainable! Here’s what I’ll be doing for 2021…
Unsubscribe to unwanted emails
Now this task has been on my to-do list for a while – so I’m going to get it done early 2021 and begin a new life where I don’t spend 20 mins of every single day deleting emails! Remember that restaurant you visited five years ago in Reading? Or that online shopping retailer you ordered from once circa 2010? It’s time to ditch the spam!
Take the lessons from 2020
To say 2020 has been tough is an understatement. It’s been a tragedy of a year for most. However, there are some positives to come out of this horrific time and I’m determined to take these life lessons forward. Things like appreciating quality family time and being grateful for the small things in life.
Watch an A-Z of movies
I’ve never been very good when it comes to watching films – I just hardly ever do it, so in my time I’ve missed out on many classics. Harry Potter? Never watched it! Star Wars? Never watched it! The Godfather? Never watched it! So, this year I am determined to get myself up to speed. Me and Arthur are going to embark on a challenge where we watch an iconic movie beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Let’s see if I get to Z!
Now this is a random one, but something I feel that would be a really useful skill to have. How nice would it be to write out present labels or birthday cards in a pretty scripty font? I’m not sure how good I’ll be at it because my ordinary handwriting isn’t great – but I’m up for giving it a go!
What are your resolutions for 2021?
