We are about two weeks into the new year and during a video meeting for work the other day, our boss asked, “Who has already broken their new year’s resolutions?” In the past, I probably would have raised my hand, and called myself out because, to be honest, I don’t have a good track record of keeping personal goals I’ve created for myself. However, this year feels different. I haven’t started on all of the goals I set for 2021 yet, but when the question was raised, I didn’t get the sinking feeling that I had already broken my resolutions or let myself down. My mindset is that I’m continuously making the conscious effort to grow and improve everyday to get to where I want to be whether it be a new year or not.
Here are the goals I’m going to accomplish this year:
I’ve been blogging for a year now, and it has been a blast! It has also been a learning experience navigating all of the ins and out of social media. Now that I’m a little more seasoned, I’m looking forward to actually planning further out and creating more content for you guys!
You can’t write new year’s resolutions without including fitness, right? Ha. My goal is to workout or get some sort of movement in at least 5 times a week because it makes me feel good and is good for my body.
My goal is to reach a point where I set aside time to do mindfulness meditation everyday. I have done it in the past for up to 2 minutes a day in the morning, and let me just tell you, it changed my entire day. I was more present, able to focus and a lot less stressed through out the day. My favorite free app for mindfulness is Headspace.
I’m on my phone a lot in general, but with being a blogger, I find myself glued to it even more. My goal is to be on it less and make sure I’m creating more than I’m consuming.
When I eat good, I feel good. My body is super sensitive to food, and what I eat really impacts how I feel physically. I’ve never been able to just eat whatever I’ve wanted. I’ve been learning new recipes and eating healthier meals since we started working from home, and I can’t wait to learn more recipes! Cooking and baking is something I really enjoy.
One of our big goals this year is to purchase land that we will build our future home on one day and where we will eventually start a family. I’m really excited about this!
What are some of your goals for this year? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
