Last week I  met with a group of friends. One of our traditions is to review the previous year and commit to goals for the next. It is always nice to reflect together. But the best thing is to share my resolutions with a group and get honest feedback plus create accountability over the year.

My 2020 resolutions (details below):

  • Live a more sustainable life
  • Share more in public
  • Try some hobbies that don't involve a computer or TV
  • Relax

Live a more sustainable life

I think we should all try to do as much as we can to limit the damage caused by climate change. And while I'm already doing my best, I see some things I can do this year to improve even more.

In the next months I will try to:

  • Limit gas usage in my home by repairing the solar water heating we have and repair broken doube glass panels
  • See how we can generate our own electricity with solar panels
  • Make our garden more bee and butterfly friendly

Share more in public

I am not sharing a lot on the web. I think it would be great to share more, it will help me put my thoughts in writing and to get more attention for my sideproject.

In the next months I will try to:

  • Write a blog once a week (this is the first :)
  • Send a newsletter once a month

Hobbies without a computer

I have a lot of hobbies but most of them involve my iMac. Creating music, working on my sideproject, playing games. I think it would be good for me and my stiff shoulders to try different things that don't involve sitting.

In the next months I will try some hobbies without a computer. My shortlist: baking, cooking, hiking, gardening, playing guitar and piano.

Relax

I have a hard time relaxing. It's hard for me to sit still and do nothing. Or to do something and relax. It will be good to take some more time for myself and with the people I care about.

In the next months I will:

  • Go to the sauna a couple of times
  • Plan trips with my boyfriend
  • Plan dinners / drinks with friends
  • Celebrate my birthday
