My New Year

Normally I always write A LOT of new years resolutions down, to keep myself inspired and look at them a few times when I feel like I need to get back on track. I wanted to do something different this year, because my resolutions is always the same, and have more or less become a lifestyle instead of goals.

My goal for 2017 is to give myself more time. Take care of myself. Accept myself. Take time off for the things I love. I know, that often I feel so stressed with school, that I stay up all night to do the homework instead of sleeping, and then I wake up the next day feeling even more stressed and tired and then it takes me even longer to focus on the homework so I stay up late again. And then it continues. One big evil circle.

I'm trying to sleep more - I know it sounds easy, but it is actually really hard for me. I'm trying to put away anything school related when it gets 8pm, then I have one hour to do whatever I want to do, and then at 9pm I put my phone away - also really hard - to slow down my "social media brain" and then read a book or magazine to get tired in a good way, not in front of my phone.

I'm trying to be better at putting down my phone, and live my life and see the world without the phone in my hand - which is really hard when you are a blogger and a lot of your work is through the social media - but I also think it is important to have clear line between work, fun and personal life. And I'm trying to build that line already now, so that it will be easier for me when I get older and (hopefully) the blog is bigger and will take more time.

I do think it is important to remember yourself and you health - listen to your body. I listen to mine, and it is really tired! Listen to yours, maybe you are too hard on yourself too? Even though school and homework is important, it is not as important as your health and well being!

My goal in 2017 is to listen to myself, take care of myself and accept that I do need sleep and need to have a healthy body to have a healthy mind the next day.

Until next time,
x Sofie
