15 Posts to Energize Your 2022 Resolutions

Here we are in 2022, and it seems that many of us, unlike last year where it seems that most of us hoped to see an end to the pandemic, just don’t have any idea what this year will bring. But though the wider world continues to be unpredictable there are always changes that we can make within our own lives to make a positive impact!

Given the time of year, it can be tempting to make an ambitious list of things to change all at once. I struggle with “New Years Resolutions” and always have good intentions to make (probably too many!) positive changes at the beginning of each year, but seem to regularly fall down in implementing all of the changes I’d like in the long term. For my 2022 resolutions, I’m taking a more measured approach and selecting a few key changes to begin on with small steps.

With that in mind, I’m sharing a few posts that you, our readers, enjoyed this year, as well as some of our favourites to hopefully help you along in any positive changes you’d have in your sights this year!

Living Sustainably on a Budget

When Alison and I started this blog, one of our aims was to share our journey in finding an intersection between living sustainably, which can often result in spending on changing out unsustainable belongings and practices and replacing them with sustainable higher priced solutions, and staying on a budget. If this is something you struggle with as well, you may enjoy the posts below!

I’ve also shared a post from one of our fellow bloggers who is currently running a January Buy Nothing challenge – consider participating this month or applying the concept to another month!

Gifting Throughout the Year

My family seems to have all of their birthdays and occasions clustered in the first five months of the year! This year I’m working to keep on top of it by making my own homemade cards in advance, and choosing and purchasing gifts early so that I can find thoughtful, sustainable items within my budget! See below for some posts we’ve shared previously to help if this is something you’d like to try this year!
