Happy New Year! I can’t believe I’m saying that and we’re nearly already half way through January. Gulp. How are the New Year resolutions going?
I decided this year not to make any.
Every year I vow to stop drinking in January, loose weight, join the gym and basically transform myself into a super model in a matter of weeks………and I invariably end up failing after a couple of days and feel even worse.
So, this year I just decided I would enjoy myself.
Hopefully by spending more time doing the things I enjoy doing, being healthier and happier will be easier. That’s the plan. So now just to figure on what I enjoy doing. I have no idea. I know I enjoy meeting up with friends, having a drink, relaxing in front of the telly….but I don’t seem to have any ‘hobbies’ or pursuits that I am passionate about.
So, I’m going to spend the next 11 and 1/2 months figuring it out.
First up I’ve joined a book club. Hopefully this will spur me on to read more. Our first book is Gone Girl. Has anyone else read this?
Second, I’m going to tackle the things that I put off doing. Namely, this blog. Social media scares the life out of me but I’m going to master my fear and enjoy it.
To that end, did any one catch Woman’s Hour on Friday? Jane Woyka, a specialist GP working at a Menopause Clinic, talks about Everlasting Menopause. There are some women who even 20 years after starting the menopause are still experiencing hot flushes. Jane talks about what causes this common symptom and how best to manage it. It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re going through the menopause.
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’m off to enjoy myself some more.
