YOURS (UK) - - Contents - Sharon Reid, Ed­i­tor

Happy New Year! How do you feel about res­o­lu­tions? They can be use­ful for get­ting your­self out of a rut, but per­son­ally I’m not a fan be­cause all too often they’re about de­priv­ing or deny­ing your­self some­thing. This year I’m tak­ing a dif­fer­ent ap­proach...

I’ve got a mile­stone birth­day com­ing up and to mark it I’ve de­cided to chal­lenge my­self to try 50 new things in 2019. It could be as sim­ple as ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dif­fer­ent cuisines, vis­it­ing new places or read­ing books by new au­thors. Or I might travel to a coun­try I’ve never vis­ited or take up a new hobby. Big or small, it doesn’t mat­ter; it’s about be­ing open to op­por­tu­ni­ties to freshen things up.

And the best part is that now I’ve told all of you, I have to com­mit to it. I will keep you up­dated as the year pro­gresses and I’d love to hear your sug­ges­tions, too, for things I should try.

Or, bet­ter still, why not set your own ‘Year To Try’ chal­lenge and let us know how you get on? See you next is­sue…

A trip to Es­to­nia could be one of my 50 things. Turn to p91 for lots more travel in­spi­ra­tion
