new years resolutions 2022
I figure I should write these down so as not to forget them, so my resolutions for the next year are going to live here :-)
these are meant to be small-ish changes to how I personally go about doing things, and in theory should be fairly achievable for me.
1. less spotify
I want to slowly wean myself off spotify this year. I listen to a lot of music, and would like to support the artists I listen to more directly!
so essentially this just means buying digital downloads of music I like and loading them into a music player! nice and easy, it'll probably just take time to build up a collection of music.
a part of me is tempted to try and code my own music player... I haven't programmed anything since GCSE computer science and I do miss it! this is probably a silly idea.
2. slow down
I want to start practicing more "slow" principles. I'm hoping it'll help ease some anxiety. I'll probably still struggle to do things like sending emails, but it's a start?
for me I think the main things I wanna focus on are:
- reducing social media usage as much as I can - it's not good for me.
- treating my body kindly- I am not an art machine!!
- giving myself space to think + feel where I can
- learn to rest; spending more quiet time doing things like knitting and reading
I feel like that looks like a lot of goals, but they all work together nicely.
happy new year!
