Setting life goals for the year ahead2 January 2019
It’s a new year and a fresh new start. I love reflecting on my past resolutions and seeing if I stuck to them, as well as setting life goals for the coming year.
Last year my resolutions were:
- Love myself more, by following dreams, reading affirmations and moving my body daily.
- Fast track my career launch my website, book and online program
- Graduate as a natural chef and work on a retreat
- Move abroad by the sea
And I’m so happy to look back and say I totally nailed my goals last year! Pretty ambitious ones at that! I love writing them down, it helps me keep my dreams in focus and make daily actions in achieving them.
Setting life goals for 2019
So I’ve made my resolutions for the year ahead now, challenging myself even more. I’m so looking forward to reading this in a year’s time and saying yep, done all those too! Wish me luck.
This year I will:
- Enjoy the journey, listen to my body more, health is wealth! Bring more routine into my life and follow my HOPE principles.
- Launch natural skincare on a global level.
- Become a global speaker and spread ‘The Beauty of Eczema™’ message
- Continue to work remotely by the ocean and make a trip to Bali
- Continue to support The Beauty of Eczema™ Tribe live their best life beyond eczema.
My top tips for creating resolutions
Don’t be over ambitious. By this I mean don’t put too much pressure on yourself by being unrealistic. Your resolutions should be challenging but achievable.
Challenge yourself. On the flip side, there’s no point setting a resolution that’s too easy. So if you only eat one cake a month saying you’ll give up cake is a bit pointless! You need to take yourself (gently) out of your comfort zone and make some real changes in your life.
Write them down. Just like I’ve done here. In a year, I can look back at these and see what I planned and what I’ve achieved. Putting them in writing means you’re more likely to be committed.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. If you’re giving something up, for example, accept that once in a while you might slip. Or if you’re taking up something new, don’t expect to become an expert at it straight away. Allow yourself the time and space you need to make your resolutions happen.
Think creatively. It’s so easy to think ‘I’ll lose weight, give up smoking, go to the gym’ because these are the standard ones. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with setting these as goals, because they’re important. But what I mean here is make your resolutions personal to you. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try or take up? Is there something blocking your way to health and happiness? What works for one person doesn’t work for the other, so look at your own life rather than that of others.
Enjoy your fresh new year ahead, I hope it brings you the happiness you deserve. Don’t forget to let me know what your resolutions are.
Lots of love, Camille xx
