Setting out unique goals for yourself is crucial to get what you want. This can be hard for some people that have a lack of motivation and drive for life. It can often cause some people to feel down because they can’t think of any goals for themselves.
In this week’s column, I’m going to talk about ways to create goals for yourself. These will be easy ways to get what you want in life. This would all start with day to day life, including small every day goals that are very achievable and realistic for you at that moment in time. I’m going to make a list of small goals for you to stimulate your motivation. These are also some of my personal goals.
Getting dressed before 9.00am every morning. (This helps you feel ready for the day ahead and organised).
Going for a 20 minute walk within your 5km distance. (This refreshes the mind and body).
30 minute Yoga session followed by 3 minute meditation.
Reading your favourite book for at least 10-20 minutes a day. (This is entirely dependent on you).
Journaling your day. (This can be hard to do everyday. If you struggle with this, once a week is perfect too. Writing down your thoughts from that day or week can really help you highlight your positives).
Eating three meals a day. (Some people do struggle with eating. Everyone has a different relationship with food. If you manage to eat your three meals a day that you may struggle to do, that is an amazing accomplishment).
Drink at least two litres of water daily. (The benefits that drinking enough water has would shock some people. When you start getting into this habit you’ll notice a positive change to your skin and body).
Take a break from your phone for at least 30-60 minutes a day. (This is one goal a lot of people would struggle to do but also need to do it. This ultimately helps clear your mind).
These goals are more achievable for me when I want to have a positive mindset. I also want to ensure you, your goals are entirely catered to your needs. If you achieve only one goal that day, that is a big positive step. Maybe the next day you will achieve two goals. I would encourage you to ease yourself into this journey.
Another way to set out your goals can be by creating a vision board. This is very beneficial
for people that like to see everything visually. All you have to do is create a list of goals that you want to achieve in 2021, collect some pictures from old magazines that inspire you and write down some of your favourite inspiring quotes to stick all onto your vision board. This board can be your main inspiration for the year ahead and may encourage you to achieve more than you even planned.
The main idea behind this whole column is to create a positive and successful mindset for your 2021. This is also a gentle reminder to be kind to yourself. Here is a positive quote that motivates me to achieve my goals. “I focus on what I can control, and I let go of what I can’t”.
