5 Things- New year resolutions that I make but seldom keep

Tanya is the host of 5 Things

It’s been quite a while since I made New Year’s resolutions. Back in the days, when I was young and over-optimist, I would make a few resolutions every New Year’s Eve, only to break them a few weeks into the year.

The usual ones were;

Losing weight;

Since I’ve been battling with weight nearly all my adult life, this would be the topmost resolve. I would start with new plans with enthusiasm but it mostly fizzled out within the first two weeks of January. You see, I love food!

Be more organized;

This one lasted more than the first one but then life usually interfered and it was back to running behind the schedules and trying to play catch up with work and studies.

Exercising more;

Though it was a part of losing weight resolve, exercising more was also a goal by itself. I always had a very high heart rate and was told to exercise more to lower it. I loved cycling but often didn’t find enough time for it. So this resolution also lay unfulfilled at the end of the year.

Going to bed early;

As I was an avid reader, sometimes I stayed up till early morning to finish a book. This played havoc with my day. I would resolve to go to sleep early only to break it when I found a book I just couldn’t put down.

Getting up early in the morning;

This goal mostly failed as it was connected to going to bed early at night. Though I am happy to say that I have achieved both these habits, in my middle age. Not through any resolutions but through common sense. I realize that this works best for me. I have also been able to get better of my insomnia by sleeping early.

What are/were you 5 failed New year resolutions?

  1. Thanks for sharing, Sadje. I haven’t made a new year’s resolution in years, yet did make them for many, many years. And, they never really worked out for me. Today I look at each moment as an opportunity to create, well, what I’d like to see. Have a great weekend! 😊
