2014 was definitely a fun year to remember. Usually, I don’t make new years resolutions, but I have been thinking of some goals that I want to accomplish next year.
1. Add in Yoga to my workouts.
Yesterday, I went to a Hot Yoga group fitness class. It’s essentially yoga but the heat is turned up in the room. I walked out of that class feeling stronger. Yoga isn’t just a “girls” workout. Yoga strengthens the muscles you didn’t know you had. It’s also very relaxing. I do use yoga as a stress reliever. I want to make sure I do Yoga at least once a week next year, but if I do it more often than that, that’s fine too!
2. Read more!
I have set a reading goal of 25 books to read in 2015. Goodreads is helping me keep track. Reading is important to me because it helps me fall asleep. I try to read every night usually just a chapter or two. I also love reading because I really get entranced in a story. The last book I finished, The Magician’s Nephew of the Chronicles of Narnia, had me entranced in the world of Narnia. I always imagine what the characters look like in my head or what Narnia looks like. It allows me to be creative and let my imagination run wild. I have also been getting into comic books and graphic novels. I love the stories and the images and how much effort went into making each picture in the comics. I plan on reading a lot more next semester!
3. Check out more books at the library!
This goal goes along with my previous goal of reading more. I want to check out more books at the library. This lets me save money, but I also find the most random cool books in the library. Last summer, I read a random book about Darth Maul and it was super interesting!
4. Run a 5K
I have never been a really good runner. I have been working on increasing my speed and my distance. I think it would be really cool to run a 5K. A 5K is around 3.2 miles. This sounds like a long distance but I think that would be really rewarding for me.
That’s really all the goals I have at the moment. My main goal is to have a lot of fun and have new experiences. I want to meet new people but improve upon the friendships I already have. Here is to a great and fantastic year. 2015 is officially here.
