New Year, New You? Top 10 Resolutions For 2013? Ten Reasons Not To Make Resolutions?
And so on... yes, everyone's talking about New Year's resolutions, and apart from vowing to complete all my Christmas shopping and tax return by the end of November, I'm planning to journal more. So that's why I'm binding myself a brand new journal, this year it will be an A4 ruled hardback journal in a Metallic bookcloth, probably Bronze, possibly Gold: practical yet a touch decadent and definitely right on trend - just what I need.
Keeping a diary or journal is a great way to stay on top of our plans and dreams, keep up to date with ourselves and take some time to reflect and join the dots. It's also surprising what new creative ideas pop up when you just drift off and doodle in the margins. Research shows that keeping a journal has positive effects on our wellbeing, so I'd like to offer a few prescriptions to see you through the start of 2013.
Feeling a little blue?
Green with envy?
Embarking on a new love affair?
Resolving to see the sunshine behind the clouds?
Giving up chocolate?
Whatever your resolutions, I hope 2013 proves to be everything you wish it to be, that your creative endeavours take flight and that your feet find interesting paths to travel. And don't forget to spend a little time writing, sketching, planning and doodling - it's good for you!
