Newsflash: Rain, wind and cold are not unusual weather conditions for January. Yes, it's grey and soggy but you won't melt. Grab your rain jacket and get outside. If muddy puddles are good enough for Peppa Pig, they're good enough for you. Then treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the tub when you get home.
If you go on Facebook right now, I guarantee I can predict the majority of statuses clogging up your newsfeed. It's not because I'm psychic, it's because the same thing happens every damn year. "New year, new me!", "2016 is going to be MY year", "2016 is going to be the NEW me." If there was a 'dislike' button, I would be be clicking it.
A new year, a new you. A chance to turn it all around, to start fresh and to make things happen - right? Well, sort of. I always say that every day is a new day and another chance to start over. I think one of the problems we face in the New Year is the expectation to have so many goals. But the pressure adds up and if we don't achieve the goals immediately we just set ourselves up for a fail. Here I have set out my lists of things to do in 2016, to take with you all year.
