Something about bringing in the New Year is so beautiful. I love the idea of starting fresh. It’s a time when people vow to break bad habits and release negativity that has stunted growth in the past year, all for the sake of bettering one’s self.
It’s the perfect time to focus on what you truly want and need – whether its little things like flossing your teeth more often or bigger things like moving to a new state, or starting that business you’ve always dreamed of.
When it comes to New Years, I like to set two types of goals: immediate and eventual.
The immediate goals are things that I can focus on every day, like maintaining a healthy lifestyle and developing hobbies. These are the easy things I often neglect but know should be done! Here are my immediate goals for 2016:
- Drink more water
- Continue working out regularly
- Try a new recipe every week
- Keep blogging
My eventual goals are things that I’d like to do before the end of the year. These are the types of goals that can be put on a list and checked off. Here are my eventual goals for 2016:
- Be able to hold a handstand and forearm stand
- Book an international trip
- Sign up for a creative course (writing, ceramics, painting, etc.)
- Join a volunteer group for a local cause
I’m sad to see 2015 go because it has been a great year, but I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings! I’ll be celebrating the New Year on top of a mountain in Aspen, so it’s already looking like it’s going to be great 🙂 I hope you all have some goals in mind to make it your best year yet!
