Our New Year’s Resolution List for 2017

Girl writes Canim Istanbul's new year's resolution list for 2016

After the eventful (to say the least) year we had in 2016, it’s time to get back to our normal lives and look ahead.

Yes, January is often dedicated to reviewing the past year and making plans for the upcoming one.

We know you’ll all be making resolutions for 2017 so we thought we’d inspire you with some of our own:

  1. Love the work that you do or find work that you love
  2. Be more disciplined
  3. Eat well, even if that means solely cutting out one guilty pleasure
  4. Sing a song out loud every day
  5. Be attentive to the way you look
  6. Make your home cozier
  7. Read 5 pages a day
  8. Find music that uplifts you
  9. Try to understand people better and don’t take everything so personally
  10. If you feel lonely, call people who love you
  11. Practice gratitude
  12. Dream big, dream often
  13. Spend gladly and save gladly
  14. Have company but don’t waste time
  15. Dance more often
  16. If you have plants, make sure they live
  17. Let your heart win
  18. Love mama
  19. Love papa
  20. Love yourself
  21. Love everybody (or at least try)
  22. Be kind – start with yourself
  23. Get out of your comfort zone (i.e. go to a place you’ve never been and get to know some folks there).
