2019 is just around the corner (I KNOW…. like what the heck happened to 2018?!). Now, as much as I want to make 1000 different resolutions I like to focus on one thing at a time. To do this I try to introduce one new idea (or ‘resolution’) at the start of every month. Some of these resolutions stick, and some of them don’t.
For instance, last January I gave up alcohol for the month. Since then, I haven’t had much to drink except the odd party or wedding which is probably why I have a lot of mocktail and elixir recipes on this website. Last year in February I gave up sugar which definitely didn’t last the whole year but I plan on doing it again this year. I like to test and try out new things and find if I stick to something for a month then I can see how my body and mind like it. Some things on my list this year include:
no sugar (January), Try cycling classes (February), Focus on Meditating every morning (March), and host more dinner parties (April)….
I haven’t written out all of my ideas yet but I find breaking these things down into months makes them far more manageable and in January I’m not trying to overhaul my life. What do you do for your New Year? Do you like to make resolutions?
In case you are deciding to have a dry January this is an easy mocktail to throw together. I juiced my own pomegranates for the freshest juice but you could use store bought( just be sure to check if it has any added sugar though!). Then, I added honey, lime juice and chopped fresh basil to complete the pomegranate syrup. To make the mocktail just pour half of the pomegranate syrup and half sparkling water over ice. Top with a fresh lime slice or some pomegranate arils and a basil leaf. Easy! Happy New Year!!
