FOR MY PHYSICAL, MENTAL and SPIRITUAL HEALTH
No more fish and/or seafood (ie. vegetarian not pescatarian anymore)
Weight-train once/week (I've become a bit of a yoga junkie)
Read a book once every 3 weeks (that's 17 books in a year)
Read the paper (a good one) more often
Meditate 4/week (ideally before the little one stirs)
FOR MY HEART
Abide whole-heartedly to my new favourite mantra (I am so sorry, I read this on a blog and can't remember who's I read it on, so please speak up if it was you, and thank you!):
Be Kind, Be Gentle, Be Safe.
Catch up with girlfriends more frequently
Find something to be grateful for everyday, and share this with my husband before bed
Join a choir or do anything else that will get me singing my heart out again (I miss it too much!)
FOR MY HOME
Only eat/make homemade cheese (that has been made from stress-free Jalna yogurt)
Make my own soap for the very first time
Menu plan more meticulously- bi-weekly plans as opposed to weekly wherever possible
Replant the front garden from scratch (we'll be renting for at least another year, so carpe diem!)
Make a rag rug (as featured in Handmade Home)
Sew an outfit for myself (and if this is successful, a few)
Knit a softie
Make, Create or Mend one thing every week
FOR THE EARTH
Limit air conditioning to days above 35
Limit heat to days below 15
Use less baby wipes when changing nappies
Bring containers to restaurants for take-away orders
Hang the laundry out even in the winter, and take it in in the evenings and throw in the drier to finish off
Try to re-use and re-purpose household items at least 3 times (for different purposes) before throwing them out (example- a old man's t-shirt to a pair of pajamas for bub to a dishcloth to a cleaning rag to a button top).
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!
May 2010 bring you love, life, laughter and above all, peace.
