Every New Year, I find myself inspired to start making changes for an even better year ahead. With that being said, I’m here to share my New Year’s resolutions for 2017 with you.
- Take better care of myself—mind and body. I find that with the stresses of medical school (especially now that I’m studying for Step), I tend to neglect myself in many ways. I try to do the best I can, but there is always room for improvement.
- Learn something new every day. This was a resolution I made last year, and it was one of my favorites. Whether it’s learning a simple fact, or a complex pathway, learning something new every day is so rewarding.
- Spend more time with family and friends. You can call me a workaholic. When I do spend time with family and friends, I try to make it really count. Again, I do my best, but there’s always room for improvement.
- Read a good book or two. I think I can manage some spare time to read a good book, especially if I have a whole year to do it.
- Getting a more quality sleep. I find myself on my phone way longer than I need to right before bed, which leads to difficulty sleeping.
- Document my life through pictures. My family and friends can attest that I’m really good about documenting my life through pictures. Again, it was a resolution I made last year, and sticking to it has been so rewarding. Pictures are a great way to hold on to memories you’ll always want to remember.
There you have it—my 2017 New Year’s resolutions! I wish you all the happiest New Year! Stay tuned for my next post with tips on how to stick to your resolutions.
