It is that time again, where we are recovering for our festive excesses and are looking at our lives and ways to improve them. My resolutions this year are not too difficult to maintain, and are mainly health and money related.
1 - I will swap my tea and milk with 2 sugars, for peppermint tea.
Peppermint tea is great for digestion and has other reported health benefits such as warding off colds and easing headaches. My favoured brand is Clipper's organic peppermint tea. This in itself will help me cut down on sugar, dairy and caffeine and requires very little effort.
2 - I will swap takeaways for chef prepared ready meals.
Takeaways are bad! I don't have many as it is, but for the same money and far fewer calories you can easily get a chef prepared, natural meal from retailer Cook. Check out my review at The Style PA at Home.
3 - I will reduce my wheat and dairy intake.
Indigestion and heartburn can be symptoms of a a wheat and dairy intolerance. I plan on cutting them out this year to see if it will help me lose weight and ease digestive problems. I will also be checking out the Wheat and Dairy Free Supermarket.
4 - I will think before I buy
Impulse buying is fun and fine if you have the money, but there are things I need to save my money for in 2009, namely moving into a new flat. I will think more about each purchase, as every penny I spend recklessly will take me further from my goal of a nice new place to live.
5 - I will double the monthly hits for The Style PA blogs
Keeping all my readers informed about what is happening in the world of style is top on my list of priorities, and attracting new readers would be great news too. I am working on extended features for the blogs and hope to unveil them some time in January.
