New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Goals to Fulfill in 2016!

New Year’s Resolutions. As you can imagine, it’s not easy to make a list of goals to fulfill and post it online, so the entire world can see it. But, after sharing them with more than 300.000 users that every month visit my blog, I have to work harder to make them come true!!! It always works! Most of my New Year’s resolutions for 2015 are real now. Only few of those goals have been suspended or postponed and you can find them again in my list for 2016. Here are my New Year’s Resolutions: the goals I want to fulfill stating from tomorrow!And with this list I wish you to enjoy the end of 2015 and to start a great 2016. I wish that all your desires will come true and you get to fulfill all the goals you set for the new year. Yes, we can! HAPPY NEW YEAR! SEE YOU ON IRENE’S CLOSET NEXT YEAR :))

New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Goals to Fulfill in 2016!

Do that thing that I’ve always wanted to do.
There’s one thing (or maybe two) that I’ve wanted to do for ages. I’m a bit afraid and I’m not to sure because it’s a little embarrassing. So I keep postponing it! But 2016 is the year of change!

Save some time for me

In 2015 I lived many professional changes, so my free time has drastically reduced! My resolution for 2016 is to try to find more time for me!

Learn to relax

This goal is connected to the previous one: this year I really want to learn to stop thinking about work! It’s not easy for people like me, hyperactive, too many ideas, too many things to be done, too many goals to fulfill in the short run. But I have to understand that there are some moment in which, for your own good you have too stop and relax a bit! ;)

Read more books

I write a lot of course… but I also like to read, read a lot! I love reading!:) One of my resolutions for 2016 is to read at least 2 books a month!

Since many of them come true… read my Resolutions for 2012Resolutions for 2013Resolutions for 2014 e and the most recent Resolutions for 2015!

Get back in shape: my practical tips to kick start your healthy life!

Get back in shape: my practical tips to kick start your healthy life!

Get back in shape. This Christmas, Santa didn’t bring me any extra kilos. Simply because I was knocked sideways by a bad case of flu’ that prevented me from going to every culinary event from the 30th December onwards, and I am still recovering. The medication and being forced to slow down with physical activity over the last few weeks of January, however, has meant I’ve gained weight! So, from today, I can finally say I’m “out of the tunnel” and finally it’s time to talk about what we hate talking about. Getting back in shape after the holidays (and in my case post illness). Perhaps by dawn on 12 January some of you will have already started your health regime. Others, like me, will be only just starting. In any case, I would love to give you a few tips for how to get back in shape after Christmas, and what not start thinking about that summer body! Ready?

Getting back in shape: 8 tips

1. Start immediately
Create a plan of attach: whether it’s in your head or written down. Then get going from today, even if it’s in the evening, there’s no time to lose! Set yourself goals that you want to hit in a certain time frame. Whether it’s losing a few kg, toning a particular part of your body (or all over), getting physically fitter, stronger, healthier… However a plan of attack doesn’t mean you must get obsessive, ok? Take time to ease into it, it’s not a race, and no one will judge you for taking it slowly. Keep calm and enjoy it!

2. Breakfast

The golden rule for wellbeing is having a good, healthy breakfast every morning, a good lunch and a small supper. A tiny breakfast that you wolf down quickly, or even worse, you don’t eat anything, will not only prevent you losing weight, but will make you gain weight because you will get strong hunger pangs mid-morning and resort to snacking! Eat more at breakfast than at any other meal and make sure you have a light supper (after supper, your need for energy is usually less).

Buoni propositi per il 2015

Buoni propositi. Come tradizione, ormai da 3 anni, il primo post su Irene’s Closet è quello dei buoni propositi per il 2015, l’anno nuovo. Forse è anche un po’ un rito scaramantico visto che spesso questi desideri si sono avverati.. mica male :D Anche la ricerca condotta da Microsoft Lumia sui buoni propositi dice proprio che 1 persona su 2 rende pubblici i propri propositi per convincersi a realizzarli :D Guarda QUI l’iniziativa di Microsoft Lumia #makeithappen che ha realizzato a dicembre alcuni propositi non realizzati del 2014.. geniale :D Tra questi anche il mio, tornare in palestra, per una vita sana e in forma! Quindi quest’anno ci riprovo!!

Ed i vostri propositi per il 2015 quali sono? Se ve li siete persi ecco i buoni propositi del 2012buoni propositi del 2013 e i quelli del 2014 :D Felice 2015 a tutte voi :D :D Vi auguro il meglio!
