Meditation

What's new

I have been using an app called Headspace for the last few weeks and find it really good. The layout is very straightforward and allows you to easily navigate around the app. It has lots of different exercises and categories that is sure to please everyone. There are ton’s of apps for meditation but Headspace has been my favourite so far. Sign up here – Headspace

Resolutions

19 things to do in 2019

As 2018 comes to an end (which I am so thankful for, something we will touch on another time), I have started to put together my resolutions for the New Year. The last part of the year has been pretty intense, so I am looking forward to 2019 with a lot of positive thoughts and hope I can follow through on at least a few of these!

  • Go on a photography course – I bought a camera a few years ago with the hope of becoming a pro-selfie taker, but my ex-boyfriend was an excellent photographer so he took the reigns on the camera. Now he’s gone, it’s my turn!
  • Get running – I am surrounded by VERY fit friends – CrossFit, Ironmen, half marathons etc and I can’t even run to catch the bus. The other day I was watching Jurrasic World and I began to panic that I would be majorly screwed if I had to run away from a giant Tyrannosaurus rex.
  • Go on a writing course – I have always enjoyed writing in my spare time (not at school), when I’m able to choose what to write about. For as long as I can remember, I’ve kept a diary and really enjoy doing so, however enjoying it doesn’t make you good at it. Point in case with this blog – we all have to start somewhere 🙂
  • Get dancing – Not much to this one, I have always loved dancing but during my relationship, certain things I enjoyed were left on pause.
  • Practise meditation – Something I started on a recent trip to Stockholm, I am finding it incredibly hard but can already feel the benefits.
  • Be more kind – This is more of a general point and I am not too sure how I will measure it. It includes being more kind to myself, as I have a lot of patience with other people, but not so much with myself!
  • Savings account – This one has been on my list for YEARS. I would like to put more money in to my savings account each month.
  • Learn Swedish – I love the country, love the language and would love to eventually live there.
  • Try one new thing a month – I love trying new things, whether that is new food, a new activity or simply just a new lipstick.
  • Quit smoking – I have lost count of how many times this has been on my list for. But 2019 is the year 🙂
