5 Things I Want to Do More Of

Can you believe it's nearly November already?! I know it's a little too early, but I'm already thinking about the new year and the changes that come with it. Don't worry, this isn't a resolutions kinda post, more just 5 things I would like to do a little more of before 2017 is over. They're pretty small or 'insignificant' things, but ultimately their things that I would like to do more of and carry into next year.

1. Reading
For some reason the only time I seem to properly read is when I'm travelling. When I was in Portugal last month I couldn't put my book down, but since getting back I haven't even picked up where I left off. So I'm going to make a conscious effort to read more. Whether that be before bed, in the bath, or on a bus, I will try my best.

2. Going For Walks
This one I'm going to struggle with as I absolutely hate being cold so will be outside as little as possible during these months. On the other hand though, I also hate being cooped up for long periods of time. Going for more walks will not only solve that, but will benefit me physically also.

3. Blogging
You may have noticed I've been rolling out a new schedule over here. I'm attempting to post three times a week now. And I'm not gonna lie, it' a lot of work. It isn't the writing the posts that I struggle with. Once I start typing I can't stop. It's the photography and editing that takes up a large chunk of my time. But it's something I want to achieve. 

4. Trying New Food
Last year or so I went through a weird phase with eating. In short, I had a panic attack on a plane, and a panic attack in a restaurant. Both times involved food, and both caused me to vomit. After that my eating habits changed. I was triggered by certain situations and certain foods. I would avoid going out to eat for the fear of having an attack or being sick. Thankfully I've gotten out of it now, so I'd like to step out of my comfort  zone. I don't want to play it safe and go to the same restaurant and order the same thing every time. I want to try new food at lots of new places.

5. Scrapbooking
To end on a more light hearted note, I really really love scrapbooking! I started a 'proper' one a couple of years ago and have just been so bust I haven't updated it in around a year (oops). So I would love to pick that back up and decorate it even better than previously.

What would you like to do more of? Is there anything new you'd like to try?

  1. This is such a cool blog post to read! I agree with all of the ones you have spoken about, but I've never actually started a scrapbook, so I should probably do that at some point. I used to be such a book worm, but I haven't read in ages. I have a few lined up in my bedside cabinet, so I might start reading for 30 minutes before bed each night! Small, achievable goals, eh?!

  3. I do a lot of reading for university but I really would like to do more for fun the same as scrapbooking x

  4. I think it's a great idea to have goals and resolutions all year round! You've picked out some fab things here, especially reading! When I make the effort to read before bed, I always sleep so much better so it's worth it! Good luck with your three posts a week schedule, I also find the photos and the editing the most time consuming bits haha!

  5. I love all these things! I'm an avid reader and a book reviewer so I'm ALWAYS reading but I don't read as much now as I did a few years ago so I'd like to change that. I want to take my blog more seriously and properly knuckle down with it at the moment too because I love it so much.


  6. I love these little small goals you have before 2017 is over. I'm hoping to fit more reading into my routine, It's something I love doing but the evenings fly by after work and I forget to pick up a book. I would also love to enjoy more walks this time of year, I can relate because I hate being cold as well but I think walking is really good for the mind as well as exercise xx

  7. I'd definitely love to do more reading and blogging too! If only there was more time in the day. However I'm sure with some careful planning we will both get there.

  8. I used to read so much, but stopped reading. I just became really busy and honestly couldn't do it, I need to start doing it now though

  12. I love going for walks this time of year xx

  13. Ooo a lovely idea for a post! One of my resolutions this year was to read more and I have epically failed that, I just haven’t been able to finish a book? I just never seem to have the time and it’s so annoying! I really want to finish at least one of the ones I’ve started before 2017 is over!

  14. I always say I need to do more reading but top of my list to do more of is walking! I need to move a lot more xxxxxxxx


  15. Reading is definitely something I want to do more of too, I always seem to constantly read on holiday too but them never do in the UK and I have no idea why, so odd! Xx

  16. I love scrapbooking! I'm in the process of making one myself, it's such a creative outlet x

  17. Reading is always on my list as I love it but hardly ever find time for it! Scrapbooking is one of my favourite things to do I have a scrapbook of tours as I go to a lot of concerts and its great to have something to look back on and treasure all the memories!

  23. I started scrapbooking not too long ago but somehow fell off it, I need to get all my supplies out again so I can keep myself busy documenting my life. My dad always did it whilst growing up and was so happy to get them out and show me all the photos and memories over the years so its always worth doing!

  24. I'm definitely with you on reading and scrapbooking.
    Posting 3 times a week is impressive, you should be so pleased with yourself!
