My Resolutions and Goals for 2017

Hello again! I feel like I never greet you guys when I start a post! Should this be a new thing I do? I don’t wanna sound tooo cliche as I write this post however, New Years resolutions are something I really enjoy making. Normally, I set myself the usual goals however last year I set myself only one – to be happy. You can read here to see how I got on with that one! (Hint: i’m pretty happy).  For 2017, I have set myself a few goals shall we say? Here’s a breakdown of them, so that you guys can keep me in check throughout the year – enjoy! Anywhooo, resolutions! Goals! This post has it all folks so buckle up and enjoy the ride ~

Do more with my days.

I often find myself bored at home with nothing to do. I have come to realise that I am way too young, and way too blessed to possibly be bored. I vow this year to do more with my days and if I ever have the audacity to say I’m bored, I will do something – no matter how small to change that.

Take care of my health more.

I don’t drink enough water, do enough exercise or sleep enough. I also don’t work out which is probably a bad idea. In 2017 I wanna drink more water, exercise 3-4 times a week and try my best to get 8 hours of sleep every night. Obviously water and exercise aren’t revolutionary, however considering neither of these exist in my life now, they might do something!

Take more photos.

I don’t have any photos on my phone, or computer from the past couple of years. I don’t know how thats happened considering I run a blog, so taking photos is kinda my thing but I rarely document memories with photos I can look back on in years to come and remember everything I did that day.

Become more financially stable.

Okay, bit dramatic there Lyds – my finances are a-ok in the grand scheme of things. I would however like to have more control when it comes to money spent on stupid things like food and random knick-knacks from Kmart. I wanna get my credit card paid off, get my savings up so I can travel next summer and try to live a little more frugally.

Goals for 2017:
  • Secure a placement for my uni co-op
  • Become vegan by March
  • Book/go on a holiday overseas
  • Grow my blog
  • Look into moving to Wellington for 2018
  • Ski in Queenstown

I hope you enjoyed reading through my resolutions and goals for this year! What are some things you would like to achieve before we ring in 2018?

As always, love Lyd x

    Great goals and resolutions! I’m planning on losing 13 kg this year so my first step is to cut down my sugary drinks intake. It’s very hard to do but I really wanna stay healthy and fit x

    Love your goals and resolutions! The one about doing more with your days really hit home for me. I definitely need to work on that one too. We’re too young to be doing nothing and not making the most of the time we have x

    I have said ‘I’m bored’ so many times! Not in the last seven months, but definitely in the past. I agree with you. We’re too blessed and young to be bored! I’m determined to do *more* with my day. Whether that’s reading a book or going for a walk or even taking a nap. I want to do more that will help me and look after my mental (and physical) health in 2017!
