I’m one of those people who live by goals.. yearly goals, monthly goals, weekly goals and most definitely daily goals. I don’t know what it is, but I just seem to thrive more when I set myself goals.
All throughout the year I will have many goals I want to accomplish, the big ones being my yearly goals.. what I want to achieve by this time next year type of thing. But then I also set myself small daily goals that will help me achieve the big ones.
When it comes to this time of the year I like to set myself a few last minute goals, just because I like to know I will get the most out of my year. I figure this doesn’t work for everyone, but it’s something that has always worked for me, so imma keep doing it! They don’t have to be anything too crazy, small manageable goals set us in the right direction to bettering our lives.
No matter how far into the year we are, it is never too late to set yourself some goals! So if you haven’t already, pick up a piece of paper and a pen and get writing down some things you want to achieve this year! It’s been a strange old year and granted, many of our goals haven’t been accomplished due to circumstances out of our control, but even if it’s just to take daily walks (which will then help with your health, both mental and physical) then it’s a goal worth making.
I thought I would share with you some of the goals I’ve made for the remainder of 2020;
I used to be so good at managing my time properly. But recently I’ve just kind of let it slip. So I’ve set myself the goal of getting this back on track. I’m getting right back into my routine, setting out my days accordingly and making sure I use my time more wisely. This one mainly comes down to prioritizing, I need to do the most important things first. We all only get 24 hours each day, I need to make the most of it!
Switch off more often;
I feel like this is one of those things I struggle with the most. I’m always on the go and seem to be busy pretty much all day long. Don’t get me wrong, I love being busy, but sometimes I need to learn to switch off and relax. I do take a lot of time to myself (which is very important) but I always end up either thinking about the things I need to do, or actually doing them. I’m going to have more time to switch off, so no going on my phone and definitely no thinking about all the things I need to get done. Even if it’s just an hour or so every so often, that’s good enough for me.
Use social media to enhance my blog traffic;
I know this is one sure way of getting more traffic on my blog, but I am yet to do it. So this is also one of my goals, I need to use social media way more than I do.. but for my blog this time. Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter.. the lot. I’ve done a fair bit of research and feel like I know enough now to be able to use it best. So here’s to hopefully driving more traffic to my blog through social media.
Give myself a break;
I’m one of those people who without even realising, puts too much pressure on themselves. I have absolutely no idea why I do it, I know I’m doing it, but for some reason can’t stop. I figured wanting the best from my life isn’t a bad thing, but I do need to give myself a break sometimes. I’m such a perfectionist and I always do my best at everything, but at times it can be a little too much. So I’m trying my best to just relax and not stress myself out as much.. we’ve had a rough year as it is, I shouldn’t be piling on the pressure.
Reading is up there with my favourite things to do.. and even though I’ve spent majority of the year indoors, reading hasn’t been on my list of priorities… and it should be. I have got so many good books I want to read, but just lately I find myself doing anything but reading. There’s just always so much to do! I’m going to make sure I set time every day to read a book, even if it’s just half and hour, it’s better than nothing.
