Blogging and Life Goals 2017

Time to set my goals for the new year! I hate using the term New Years Resolutions they’re always the same and they just sound a bit too weak. I am however, like a blogging buddy Jessica from Beauties and the Bibs going to set myself some real goals. I took part in the Goal Setters Wrap Party with Aby from You Baby Me Mummy and that really helped me put what I want into a bit more perspective. I’m also going to use the Happiness Planner throughout the year and a budget planner to help me reach the goals I’m setting. So even though I think New Years Resolutions never really go to plan I am going to set both goals and resolutions. Goals will be actionable that will change my life for the better, resolutions are more about my personal wellbeing and mental health.

New Years Resolutions for 2017

A sentence a day gratitude diary
Read more fiction and non fiction books, at least one book a week using Kindle Unlimited
Take one photo every day for #365daysofpositive
Daily Yoga Routine

I think all of these will really help with my personal self care, mental wellbeing and a way to remember and reflect on the year. I think it will help me to live a bit more in the moment too and actually think about the kind of day I’m having, what we’re doing as a family and how there is always something to be grateful for in every day. Changing your mindset can take quite a lot of energy and I think these actions will really help with that.

Goals for 2017
For my goals I’ve taken Aby’s advice and will be working with a 90 day plan each quarter to help me really focus on what I want to achieve. Each of my goals can be broken down into even smaller chunks which will make them really manageable and I will be doing things every single day to work towards them.

When I went self hosted back in April I wrote down some blogging goals which I’m glad to say I have achieved although completely forgot to look back on.

How about you, have you got any goals or resolutions for 2017?
