Begin again

15 January 2019

I made a mental list of all the things I love doing in the final days of 2018. There was nothing too fancy, just things like picnics, yoga classes, weekends away, watching movies at the cinema, going to the farmers market, and meals out with good friends. I figured by making a list, I'd have something to fall back on during the year whenever things start to feel a little crazy.

There are a couple of things I'm being mindful of in this early part of 2019. One is rushing around a whole lot less, because I can get addicted to getting things done. And now that I'm back at work, I've been making an effort to eat my lunch and really enjoy it, without the distraction of my phone. It was weird at first (lots of staring out the break room window!) but I'm slowly getting used to it and am feeling physically better for it. I'd love to know if you're trying anything new at the start of this year, if you'd like to share :)

My yoga teacher has a lovely take on thinking about the future. Rather than setting big goals, like getting a new job, she instead thinks about how she might like to feel in a few months or a year's time, and who she might like to be then. I'm keen to give it a try.
