Goals for 2019

A new year has approached, and might I add, very quickly. Thus, thousands of people post their New Year’s resolutions in the hope that the year ahead will hold a somewhat better version of themselves. The 1st of January marks a clean slate for everyone, an excuse to change their lives or habits. For me, I want to set myself some goals – ones that are reasonable, and that I can work towards achieving. At the end of the year, I will review this post, and update you all on what goals I achieved and how things may have changed from now.

1. I want to find full-time employment.

This may not be my “dream job”, but I have to start somewhere. I just want to find something that I can be excited to start, and know that it will give me the valuable experience needed for my future career.

2. Read more and regularly.

I need to get into the habit of picking up my books and actually spending some time on them. I love reading, when I get myself into it. With other distractions, it can be easy to forget about reading.

3. Move out.

This is dependant on my situation, but I would at least like to be financially ready to start finding my own place by the end of the year.

4. Blog more and improve my skills in blogging.

I really want to make sure that I work on my blog more. I have had a lot of long breaks recently, which is great, but I feel like I need to spend more time on it.

5. Visit more places in the UK.

There are so many places that I want to go. I would really love to start visiting more places in the UK.

6. Stop worrying about the future.

I always get anxious about things that haven’t happened yet. The fear of the unknown. I would really like to try more to overcome my fears of this.

7. Start a new hobby or join a club.

Even if it doesn’t last all year, I would like to do one of these things in order to discover new interests.

8. Keep up fitness.

I would hate to see myself give up on the gym or exercise. 2018 was a great year for my fitness, so I would love to keep this up. Even if I miss a week, I would like to continue to exercise regularly.

9. Keep up my skincare routine.

Sometimes, I forget to follow my routine out of laziness – I want to try and keep my skin looking healthy – also drink more water!

10. Cut down on sugary drinks and food.

I have already started doing this, and I am really happy about it. However, I would like to cut down on a little more sugar this year.


So far, that’s it! It may not be a list filled with massive goals, but I like to stick to realistic goals. I have given myself one or two big goals – but I think that’s enough. Small steps.

What are your goals? I find that most of mine are similar each year, but I really would like to live in my own place by the end of the year!
