What do you want more of and less of for 2018?

I like January. December has its perks, but it drags. After the hullabaloo of Christmas, it feels like something needs to happen, but it never does. This leaves the end of December feeling like you’re just sitting watching TV, waiting and waiting for the adverts to end so you can find out what happens next.

I wanted to see what people were thinking about the New Year. Hopes, resolutions, wishes, desires. It was a broad question with an unintentional hidden ‘less or fewer’ trap, but people’s answers made me think about what’s in and out of our control.

Stopping stress, helping the environment, sorting out finances, losing weight, ignoring Trump, drinking more tequila. Are these all possible?

And that’s why I like January: it’s what happens next. It’s the story that isn’t written yet. The notebook that’s blank. The oyster that’s waiting. The…(you get the idea).

I suppose you could say that the ‘you are the master of your own destiny’ idea is true for every single day we stand on this planet and it moves, but mustering that kind of enthusiasm and self conviction for 365 days is a bit of stretch. I try to limit it to a few times a year: this being one of them.

My plan is to waste less of what’s precious (food, resources, time) and make more of what’s important (loved ones, principles, health and new adventures). Not that complicated, but will require some habit changes and some new walking boots.

So have a very happy ‘more of what you want, and less of what you don’t’ 2018!


I also got a good tip off about a TEDx talk by Bristol based Natalie Fee about why plastic pollution is personal, well worth a watch:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJiQt9ASSNg&feature=youtu.be

Yesterday Natalie Fee was on ITV news talking about the amount of plastic washing up on Bristol’s riverbanks.


Also, if you're not sure how to go about making a change, I can't resist sharing my friend's sage words and questions to ask yourself for the new year on her Facebook page, Living Sensitively. Lynda even talks about more or less so how can I not! Lynda's therapeutic coaching sessions help with alleviating stress, anxiety, physical symptoms, phobias, food cravings, and with helping to improve confidence, self esteem, emotional wellbeing and energy. She might be just the help you need to make 2018 a great year to look back on!
