Hello my lovelies,
Spring has finally sprung! It’s been a little temperamental here in England with one day being the warmest day of the year so far and the next being chilly and windy. But that’s England for you.
I’m sure you’re wondering why I have decided to change up the entire calendar year that has pretty much stood the test of time.Changing the New Year to 20 March is a pretty ludicrous thing to propose. Of course I’m not going to petition parliament with my request, it’s just a personal thing; but hear me out.
I’m not sure who came up with the idea to have the New Year start on 1 January but it was a pretty rubbish idea. I understand that life can seem lackluster after Christmas and people need something to celebrate. Any reason for a tipple! I’ve got nothing against celebrating the fact that the following day will be the 1st of January. However, I do have a problem with trying to get anything done in January. Or February, come to think of it. They are rubbish months where morale is low and I don’t know about you but I feel my worst in these months.
Most people decided to crack on with New Year’s resolutions in January and almost every single person I know has failed to start a new regime at this time of year. Think about it for a minute. The weather is crap. It’s cold, it’s miserable and gray. You don’t feel like starting anything new. You don’t feel optimistic or in any right frame of mind to make life changes. It’s a grim time of year to be doing anything besides getting your Hygge on. So what do we do? We write a list of all the things we want to change in our lives and within a week, we feel like useless wretches because we haven’t been able to even start on the goals we set ourselves. Can you say counterproductive?
I don’t know about you but the closer I get to Spring which is mid March, the more optimistic I feel. The sun shines brighter, the days are getting longer and suddenly, I feel more energetic. I feel optimistic. I feel ready to start doing the things I’ve been meaning to. See what I mean? It just makes sense!
Just after Christmas is the best time to start thinking about the things you want to change. January and February are the time to finalize that list of changes and to get ready. Wanna get fit? Buy those new trainers in January. Wanna start eating healthy? Do your research so come March, you’re good to go!
Who is with me?
