I’m not really one for setting myself ‘New Years Resolutions’ they are often unachieveable and make me feel disheartened when I’m unable to complete them. This year, I’ve decided to give myself 3 easy achievable goals for 2021. My goals are not to triple my blog views or land X amount of brand collaborations, because I know if I didn’t reach these targets, I would be disappointed in myself. I wasn’t actually going to share my goals online, but instead, this will (hopefully) make me more accountable!
Write a highlight of every day
This was actually a goal my boyfriend set himself at the start of 2020, which he acheived!! It’s sounds like a very easy task, however on our bad days, simply finding one good thing to write about is pretty hard. The highlight doesn’t even need to be something super positive either, it can be anything from eating your favourite meal to having an argument with a colleague. Having a highlight of every day to reflect back on from time to time, is a great way of finding pleasure from the small things in life. For the time being, I am writing the highlights in the notes section on my phone, but plan to jot them down in a notebook soon.
Do a full skincare routine morning and evening
On busy or lazy days, it can be quite easy to skip steps in your skincare routine. I plan to make a conscious effort with my skin, and ensure I do a full skincare routine morning and evening. This will become difficult when I eventually go back to work in the office, but I plan to get out of bed a few minutes earlier to take the time for self-care.
I love reading so much but I find that I don’t do nearly as much as I should. In 2021, I am setting myself a goal of reading part of my book just once a day. I’m currently reading The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware and I am fully obsessed, it’s so spooky and creepy. I have many books lined up to read in 2021, which I cannot wait to get my teeth into. My first read of 2021 was The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley, it was a great crime novel, but I did predict a couple of the twists earlier on in the story.
Setting goals that you will actually enjoy is definitely the key to acheiving them. There’s no point in setting a goal that you dread completing, otherwise you will 100% not stick to it. Have you set yourself any goals for 2021? I’d love to know what you would like to achieve.
Until Another Day x
