2017 Personal Goals

Firstly, Happy New Year! I predict that I’m currently feeling slightly hungover and regretting not doing my full skincare routine before I went to bed last night… I wanted to set myself a couple of “resolutions”, I’m not keen on putting a label on this, lets just say here are a few things I want to achieve/ do over the next 12 months!

Have more gratitude and appreciate the small things

Throughout 2016 I forgot to take a step back and just appreciate the little things in life. Whether it’s a funny moment in work or a friendly shop assistant, I really want to take a moment to be thankful for all of those things I more often than not take for granted.

Learn more about SEO/ Improve my blog photography

Anyone else love the analytical side of blogging? I’m eager to expand my knowledge of all things SEO whether that’s through an online course or reading up on it more. I’m also tempted to complete a photography course, I’m happy with my progress so far but I actually quite enjoy the whole textbook learning process alongside being practical.

Stop hoarding and declutter atleast once a month

I’m already on a role with this one and I actually started straight after Christmas, I managed to clear out a whole bin bag of shoes! It’s ridiculous how much stuff I have crammed into draws, I really want to feel organised and in a good place in 2017. I truly believe that a tidy space = tidy mind so it has to be done!

Get fit and healthy 

Cliche I know, but hear me out. I enjoy exercising so it’s just a case of keeping it up (and resisting the chocolate and crisps in the kitchen cupboard!). I want to be going to the gym atleast 4 times a week and make more time for meal prep and eating decent meals. I feel so much better in myself when I do it, I think it’s just a case of getting into a good routine and also the will power to say no to a choccy biscuit…

There they are, a few things I’ll be keeping in the back of my mind as we go into the new year! I hope you have an amazing start to 2017, are you going into the New Year with any goals in mind?

    Love these goals – especially the gratitude 🙂 I am hoping to get back into shape after what has been an overindulgent Christmas, and I also want to declutter my room. I have SO MUCH crap in there that is no longer needed – a clear out is going to happen soon. Best of luck with your goals, and Happy New Year lovely lady! xxJessie | allthingsbeautiful-x

    I think your blog photography is amazing, it puts mine to shame! I wish I could have a knack for flatlays but I guess practice does make perfect. I've also made a start on doing a clearout, and I'm hoping to do it more regularly too! I'm such a hoarder (especially when it comes to clothes) so I really need to sort that out this year… Lizzie Bee //

    We have a lot of the same goals for 2017! I seriously need to declutter, and I'm currently in the process of getting rid of so many things I just don't use, but hoard. Such a bad habit! Totally agree with the whole tidy space = tidy mind. Good luck and happy new year :)xxNida | Caked To The Nines

    I definitely agree with you about needing to get my blog photos looking a bit sharper and nicer. And I need to de-clutter more as well! Hopefully in 2017 I'll be able to part with some junk and start living a more minimalist lifestyle. Great post!Tia | The 10am Blog

    I love this post, and I definitely relate to the de-cluttering point. Since I became a homeowner I've used it as an excuse to start hoarding things that I would have thrown away when I lived in one room and now it's really starting to pile up! Good luck lovely, I hope you have a great year! xxx
