The Christmas buzz has died down (we hope you had a lovely day!), New Year’s Eve is approaching and it’s that time of year where we start to set goals and resolutions for the year ahead.
We imagine you’re going to be setting a range of resolutions for 2018 that cover everything from personal development to fitness, and perhaps even a few work-related goals. In today’s post we’re going to focus on five vaping-related resolutions that might inspire you to set some of your own vaping goals.
Whether you’re aiming to get to the gym more often, learn a new hobby or learn a vaping trick or two, we want to start with a few tips to help you set realistic resolutions that you’re able to stick to throughout the whole of 2018. After all, there’s nothing more demotivating than feeling like you have an impossible task ahead of you.
So what’s the best way to make sure you reach your goals and, more importantly, enjoy the process? First of all, choose something that’s measurable and realistic. While going from a gentle jog on the treadmill to running an ultra marathon might seem attainable as a goal when you’re jotting it down with your feet up, it might not feel so do-able when you’re trying to make it happen. Instead, set a goal that will stretch you but still falls within the realm of possibility. If you want to give running a try and get healthier at the same time then why not set the aim of completing a 5km or 10km run by the end of the year?
Our other point, that goals should be measurable, is a really great tip to keep motivated throughout the year. Let’s say one of your goals is to do better with your finances, setting a resolution of ‘I’m going to save more’ is easy to push by the wayside as you’ll never really feel like you’ve achieved it as there’s nothing to measure. However, if you reframe the resolution as ‘I’m going to save £100 per month’ it’s suddenly a lot easier to measure your success.
These two principles of goals being measurable and realistic can be applied to every resolution under the sun, vaping or otherwise, so try to keep them in mind when you’re setting your resolutions for next year.
Now, let’s go through five vaping-related resolutions you might want to add to your list to level up your vaping in 2018:
Shop Your Stash
If you spend time on social media or YouTube looking at vaping reviews then you likely have a wishlist as long as your arm of vaping gear and e-liquids that you want to try. With so many new releases in 2017 it’s inevitable! However, sometimes we all get so focused on the shiny new vaping goodies that it’s easy to forget that some really great devices or e-liquid flavours might be languishing sadly at the back of your drawers.
Before making that impulse purchase of fifteen new e-liquid flavours, why not take a moment to shop your own stash and see if a forgotten favourite is ready for a comeback?
Share Your Feedback
Vapers love to share their thoughts about new equipment and e-liquid flavours, so why not join them? You could share mini reviews on social media, take the plunge and film your first YouTube video or just get in touch with your favourite vaping brand to let them know what you thought of your latest purchase (we’re all ears!).
We’re always keen to hear what our customers think and we’d love to hear your feedback, positive or negative. The positive feedback lets us know we’re putting out products you enjoy and helps give us guidance on future releases, and constructive criticism is just as valuable as it helps us make changes to ensure we’re always giving the community high quality, relevant products that help elevate their enjoyment of vaping.
Do you find yourself vaping the same flavours day in, day out, and getting a little uninspired by the end of the week? It’s natural to have your favourites and want to stick with what’s tried and tested but why not make 2018 the year that you discover your new favourite flavour?
With more and more e-liquids becoming available there’s never been a better time to branch out and try something new. If you can’t decide on one, why not try a sample pack where you’ll be treated to six different flavours to test out?
Keep Up with News
The world of vaping is ever-changing and it feels like a new study or piece of legislation is released on a weekly basis. It can be tough to keep up to date with all the latest news but we urge you to at least try to keep your finger on the pulse when it comes to the international state of vaping.
If you think this one will be tough then why not set a smaller goal of reading at least two vaping-related news stories a week? We’re always sharing breaking news on our Facebook and Twitter pages so we’ll help point you in the right direction. Remember, though, always fact check your news before sharing!
Swot Up On Safety
Whether you’re a new vaper who is still learning the specifics or a veteran vaper who’s become a bit slack with safety, we think this is a resolution each and every one of us should strive for in 2018.
We want to make sure everybody can enjoy a safe vaping experience so we shared some basic vapour safety tips to help get you started. Why not make it your 2018 mission to do some reading and set your own list of vaping safety rules that you stick to 100% of the time, whether you’re vaping at home or on the go.
What do you think? Has one of our resolutions inspired you into forming an action plan for 2018? We certainly hope so. Don’t forget to send us your vaping-related New Year’s Resolutions on Facebook or Twitter!
