New Year's Resolutions and Goals.
I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions or Goals but this year I aim to:

Stay free from SH.
Stay out of hospital.
Do a few hours in a charity shop.

What are yours?

Good luck with your goals, they sound really positive.

I'm not making any resolutions, just sticking to my positives jar again.

They sound like really good goals, tamo. Love the idea of the positives jar Lindsay.

My goals are:
- go back to college to qualify.
- try wild swimming/the Climbing Centre.
- visit the Isle of Skye.
- go on more walks/hikes.

Bonus goals:
- start an Etsy shop.
- start a business as a Holistic Therapist.
- visit Cornwall.

They all sound like really good goals.

I'm not really into New Year Resolutions but I have some goals which are...
-Do a course or two
-Go to the gym/swimming/spa
-Stay out of hospital (once I get out of hospital)
-Go on one or two holidays
-Volunteer at an animal sanctuary/farm etc

If anyone needs support with their goals or resolutions, but you don't want to make your own thread, feel free to ask for help here.

Good luck Joanna.

Thank you xx

These all sound really positive. Good luck to everybody with their resolutions this year. I’d love to make a resolution not to SH, but I know that would be setting myself up for failure �� I am trying to stop, but really need some help doing so as for the last 15 years it has been my go-to coping mechanism whenever things get too overwhelming. This year my resolutions are to try to exercise regularly, to build my confidence about sharing my ideas with my supervisors / other academics, and to try to present my research at a conference.

tamobhuuta 03-01-2020 08:49 AM

Can I ask, what's your research on?

Serendipity. 03-01-2020 03:12 PM

I'm glad there's a thread about this!

Those sound like great goals tamo.

Positives jars are great Lindsay :)

Those are amazing goals Soft Kitty, good luck with them!

Great goals Joanna, I hope you manage to do the things you want to do :)

Good luck Starbuck88, I can imagine it being really tough to share your ideas, so I hope you manage to build up your confidence.

This year my goals are:
- Finish my course and qualify as a social worker. Get a job!
- Get fitter and healthier. I've started working on it already and I've registered for a half marathon in May. I'll be fundraising for a charity and I'm thinking about doing some other challenges that I've been thinking about for years!
- I want to meet more people and make friends this year. Most of my friends don't live near me so I really want to make the effort to meet people locally.

Hiya tamobhuuta, thanks for the interest. I'd rather not say, though, if that's okay, because I'd like to maintain some anonymity on here, and I think that if I'm specific about what my research is on it might be enough for somebody who knows me to know that it's me posting. However, I will say that my PhD is in the field of Philosophy, so probably not considered real research by a lot of people!

tamobhuuta 04-01-2020 10:26 AM

I think that's real research :) my brother did a BA in philosophy and English literature..

My resolution s are

go back to college
Keep on top of the dishes
Actually keep the flat clean and tidy
So far so good with most of it haven't gone back to college yet and it's only been four days of keeping on top of things housework wise but I can see an improvement especially in the kitchen and bathroom

Also I want to save money towards having kids I don't want a relationship but do want a baby so the money will be for conception at a fertility clinic

To b debt free and save money generally for if n when things go wrong or break

To get fit n loose weight eat healthier this one is not goin well
