New Year Resolutions

Every year around 40 per cent of Australians write down their New Year’s Resolutions yet only 12 per cent actually stick to them.  Mid January is the prime time for resolution focus to begin to fade. Here are some top tips from psychologist Jocelyn Brewer, on how to make and keep your New Year’s Resolutions in 2016

“As with making a recipe for the first time, you’d check you have the tools and ingredients to make it work before you start.  In the same way, you have to become skilled in cooking up a delicious life.”

Here are Jocelyn’s top tips on making new years resolutions that work:

1.              Ingredients - rather than list the final goal, start with a list of ingredients, ie steps required to make the changes that lead to the final goal.  Eg, if the goal is ‘lose weight’, then list how you will change your diet and exercise program to achieve this goal.

2.              Once more with feeling – tune into the feeling you have when you visualise your goal, eg ‘joyful’, ‘free’, ‘energised’.  Tapping into feelings will help you visualise your goal and bring it to fruition.

3.              Practice makes perfect – it’s worth taking the time to plot, plan and prepare.  Taking time to review and reflect on the past can help you frame what you want to achieve in the future.

4.              Review – be prepared to review your goals along the way.  Goals can be refined as situations or circumstances change.  It’s OK to learn as you go and allow yourself to review and modify your goals along the way.

5.              Write it down – the simple act of handwriting your goals is an empowering approach to framing your tasks in an action orientated way and will help you enjoy a sense of achievement as tasks are completed.

I would give these to my very artistic 11 year old daughter. She would be in pen heaven!! Ok, maybe I'd keep a few for me, but I'd have to hide them to prevent them from going "missing"!

I have a very dear pen friend who lives in Poland. We went to the same primary school here in Australia but then she shifted back to her home land of Poland and has been there for over twenty years. Over that time, we have written countless letters to each other, shared our ups and downs, and everything in between! I'd use this prize to write more letters and cards to her.

Pilot Pen Frixion pen set would make a super cool present from Tooth Fairy for my son - he does not have a pen license yet but loves to write and draw with pens. Pilot pens would allow him to be creative & learn things without the fear of making mistakes.

I would love to use the Pilot Pen Frixion Range for my uni notes, these would save me scribbling out my mistakes and trying to squeeze in the correct information around the scribble - makes for very messy notes :(
Thank you for the competition :D

Mum and son colouring in time! He's only 4 but gets horribly annoyed with himself when he goes out of the lines, which means he doesn't want to colour in with me... but if we had erasable pens I'm sure he would stop minding if he goes out of the lines because he can rub it out!

I'd love to give it to my daughter to encourage her to make some groovy artwork for our fridge! We've just bought an A3 laminator and I love laminating her work and sticking it up. And we have a big white fridge just waiting for more art to brighten it up!

This year I will need many uses for pens. Firstly at work to write my nursing notes. Secondly to be used for studying as I am going back to studying and thirdly to help me relax by being used to color in with my coloring book.

I have just finished a course in bookbinding so that I can make a leather bound hand written book of my poetry and short stories. A set of Frixion would be wonderful to use for my illustrations and writings. Thanks you for the opportunity.

I'd use them to fill in crossword puzzles. I hate using pencils as they're not dark enough.

I would use them at work and give some to my daughter - we are both left handers and use pencils due to smudging with normal pens. They did come out with erasable pens when I was younger but they were really bad for smudging, I've heard these are great :)

We've got 4 kids and a weekly planner that
requires a degree in military precision to manage.
The funny thing is apparently plans change (all the freakin' time) I am begging you for the chance to see what it is like to erase my mistakes (rare occurrence but it does happen) but more importantly help me erase the notes from when the cherubs and others change their minds! I don't think they understand the long term effects they are having on my mind!! Please help me remain sane.

Like myself my children are always running late. Frixton pens will allow me to gather my thoughts as I write yet another late note for school, and change a horrible task into one of enjoyment and fun.
