Lifestyle | 2016 Goals

I love nothing more than writing some goals down at the beginning of each year and trying to stick to them. Each year feels like a new start and that I can write another exciting chapter in my book of life. So I thought I'd share some of my goals for this year!

Pass my Driving Test.
So yesterday I had my first driving lesson in ten years as I've decided this year I really need to learn to drive now. I turn 28 in July and hope to have passed by then; as I live a bit further out from my close friends now being able to drive is becoming more essential as getting public transport and paying for taxis every weekend is getting to be a bit too expensive. Let me know if you'd like to read updates of how I'm getting on with my lessons in the comments.

Eat More Healthier & Drink More Water.
Like everyone else probably I'm wanting to shift a few pounds this year, so this means eating more healthy foods and drinking more water. I'm currently the biggest weight I've ever been and it's not that's it getting to me I just know if I don't cut back now it will get worse. I've started to cut dairy out and I'm bringing lunch to work everyday. I've also bought a fruit infuser water bottle to help me on my quest of drinking more water every day. There's a blog post coming on Wednesday all about how intend to do this.

Exercise At Least Once A Week.
On my quest to loose some weight I want to get back exercising, whether this be a walk round the block, a YouTube exercise video or going to bootcamp on a Sunday morning. I know that this will not only help me loose weight but also help with my anxiety.

Take my Make Up Off Each Night.
After a long day at work or a night out, sometimes the last thing I want to do is spend 10 minutes doing a full skincare routine. However my skin of lately has been quite bad so I know taking it off each night will be beneficial to clearing my spots up. I have also done the worse thing a beauty blogger can do and that is purchase some micellar face wipes! Only because I know if I've had a really late night this will ensure I do take my make up off.

Stick To a Blog Schedule & Get Back Into YouTube.
The one thing I struggle with on my blog is sticking to a schedule! I do really well for a good few weeks then I just hit a wall where I don't post anything for another few weeks. I want this to change by sticking to a schedule. So I'm reducing to two posts a week from today, Sunday's & Wednesday's at 7.30pm. This will give me the weekends to get some content prepared as well as more time to promote each post.
I also want to get back into YouTube again, I love watching YouTube videos but I just haven't had the chance to film lately. I'm hoping this can change soon and I will be able to start sharing some content over on my channel once again.

Make The Most Of Weekends.
As much as I love binging on Netflix and snuggling up with my duvet at the weekends, I feel that it wastes my time I have being away from work. So I now want to fill my weekends up doing things and exploring; I've planned a few trips to museums/exhibitions I want to see as well as organising some fun things with my friends to do. One resolution my best friends and I have made is that the last Friday of each month we do something after work, each taking it in turn to organise. Which is a great way to make sure we make the time to see each other.

I really want to stick to these goals this year as I don't feel like there too much of a change for me and should be easy to stick to. I'm hoping to give you all an update half way through the year also of how I'm doing; as this will hopefully make me stick to them even more.

What are your goals for 2016? Is there any tips you can give me to help stick to my goals?
Let me know in the comments below.

Until Next Time...
