Living Up To My 2016 New Year’s Resolutions | New Promises

IG: @beaandbeauty

To start, I think I did a pretty good job by living up to my resolutions because I made them not too fancy. They were very realistic and true to life. But they weren’t too easy to tick off as well. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, link here!

In 2017, I want to make promises/resolutions that will not only better myself at this moment but for the future as well. Especially when it comes to health and lifestyle.

  1. Don’t compare yourself to others.

I am at a point in my life where I see my (yuppie) friends starting their careers and excelling at it. When a friend achieves something, you can’t help but be so proud of them at the end of the day. Everyone has a different story and their own bumps on their journey, some take a bit longer than others too. So don’t worry your time will come 🙂

      2. Eat better.

Apart from not eating pork, beef and deep fried types of food, I hope to take my healthy eating to a whole new level. I plan on giving up rice for the most part of the year, but my plan is not to cut carbs completely but to eat carbs in form of vegetables instead. We’ll see how long will I last.

      3. Run a 21k.

The past weeks, my cousin and I have been training ourselves to run a 21k by the end of 2017. I know this is a long shot but I think this would be great motivation for us to keep on moving and staying healthy. 

      4. Learn from the wise.

As a millennial, I know we can get a bit self righteous by not listening to people with more experience, thinking that we know how everything works. Listening or allowing yourself to be nurtured by a wiser being is a blessing in disguise. Listen carefully.

5. Empower peers.

Instead of trying to belittle each other for their weaknesses, teaching them the ropes and sharing your ideas will always be the better choice. Make a kid’s day by being the best big brother/sister they’ve never had.
