10 Small Goals You Can Set For Yourself Each Month That Are Actually Attainable
A new year. 12 whole months, 52 weeks, 365 days, and a slew of resolutions. A new year brings new found motivation to everyone and unfortunately, we tend to get carried away with the resolutions we set. Halfway through the year, we've either gotten overwhelmed or "forgotten" all of those resolutions. So think small and simple. These little goals each month require the bare minimum effort and can help improve your life or possibly be ways to further your resolutions throughout the year.
Make To Do Lists. Make a to-do list before you go to bed at night to clear your mind to get a good nights rest, or jot down a to-do list them in the morning to start your day off on the right foot. Try to center your priorities and write down the things that are the most important and you want to get done. Lists can help you focus and optimize productivity and isn't that something we all strive for in a new year?
Write Down 1 Thing Everyday That You’re Grateful For. This can be in your phone, on paper, on a word doc, your Instagram story really whatever you, please. Writing down one thing that your grateful for every day helps you start, spend, or end your day with something you value, and more than likely makes you happy. Life can be hard, and having a list that you can look back on when you're not having the best day can help you power through.
.Drink 8 Ounces of Water When You Wake Up. Keep a water bottle by your bed to remind you to drink those 8 ounces first thing in the morning. Drinking water in the morning can help wake up the body and kick start your metabolism. Hydration is so important and helps us maintain good health and who doesn't want that?
Take Yourself on a Date. That's right, take yourself on a date! Get a nice breakfast, sit at a park and read, go on a hike, treat yourself to a shopping spree. Set aside 1 day a month to spoil yourself. You deserve it. Fill yourself with self-love.
Create a Sleep Schedule. This may be a more difficult goal on this list because life is unpredictable, but doing your best to go to sleep and wake up around the same time every day can do wonders for your health. Feeling well rested and taking on a new day is an invaluable feeling.
Develop a Morning and Night Routine. Create your morning and nightly rituals. Whether that means showering, journaling, catching up on a tv show, reading a book, etc. Make time for yourself a leave an hour before bed, and an hour when you wake up to take things slow and do what makes you feel good and do it every day. Consistency from good habits only makes a better life.
Make Your Bed.Start your day by making your bed! It keeps you from getting back into it and instantly makes your room look cleaner. Also, it helps you start your day knowing that you've already accomplished something, and feeling productive from the start of the day only solicits more productivity.
Don’t Hate Your Sundays. You may dread Sundays because they're the start to a sometimes daunting 7 days of work, tests, or school. Use Sundays to plan out your week, do laundry, finish homework assignments, self-care, treat yourself to a nice breakfast, clean your room, whatever you need to do to start of your week fresh and stress-free. So don't hate on Sunday's utilize them!
Make Someones Day. Tell your friends and family that you love them and be their hype man. Be that person that goes out of their way to compliment a stranger you like their outfit. This help transform your mind to see the beauty in the little things. Spread love and positivity wherever you go, chances are by making someone else day, you're also making your own.
