2021 you better be good to us, okay! Please and thank you.
Happy New Year to all you wonderful people!
Before we get into the nitty gritty and start talking about resolutions, intentions and goal setting, I just want to ask... How are you doing?
Like genuinely, How are you feeling? Even though we’re in a new year, COVID-19 is still very much present and we often forget that we’re still going through a pandemic on top of every day life struggles.
Are we participating in Veganuary? If so, what have you been cooking up in the kitchen? *chefs kiss* I'm always searching for some meal time Inspo so why not tag us in your creations.
Okay, let’s get into it… fresh new year calls for new intentions and new goals. Are you the kind of person that sets goals and sticks to them? Or are you like me who tends to throw the towel in about 4 days after setting said goal. Do you know why? I always set unrealistic goals that are so difficult to accomplish. You have to set yourself realistic goals that you know you’re more likely to accomplish.
I’m gonna be honest with you, this year I haven’t set myself any resolutions as we don’t even know how the year will pan out so instead I’m going with the live for now attitude and just doing everything that I wanted to do last year that I didn’t do (From home obviously as we are very much in a national lockdown in the UK).
So for example, I have been wanting to learn how to do my hair in different styles and I would always put it off or go to the salon, but now I’m spending most of my time at home I thought, why not actually sit down and start learning how to style my hair differently as I have all the time in the world now.
A great way to keep track of your goals is to create a vision board that you can physically put up in your home. This way you being constantly reminded every time you look at it, and it can also become a piece of art. There are so many examples of vision boards on the internet that it can become quite overwhelming when you sit down to start. So to make it easier for you, we have curated a board on our Pinterest with some easy templates to get you started.
The best way to look at a vision board, in my opinion anyway, is you have to add things you really want to see happen and to again, be realistic with what you want to have. So if you’re creating a 2021 Vision board, travelling may not be on there, however, saving money and cooking more wholesome meals might be. Just remember to have fun and be realistic.
To your wellbeing,
This was such an encouraging post. I can relate to what you said about setting goals that are unrealistic and then giving up on them early, which in turn makes me feel down on myself. While I have a few things I’m looking forward to accomplishing, for the most part, I’ll be living for now, like you mentioned. One thing that I’ve learned through this pandemic is that tomorrow isn’t promised, so I’m going to do the things that I want to do while I’m still blessed to be alive to do it!
