January is usually the time where we reflect on our habits, understand how we want the new year to look and assess how we want it to be better than the year before.
So to help you do this I have put together 10 health goals you could set yourself in 2021 to help your overall lifestyle become more healthy.
Goal 1 - Get a Good Nights Sleep
Getting a good nights sleep is so beneficial. By awaking from a good nights sleep it will help you have a fresher mind as well as enabling you to concentrate more fully during tasks.
Goal 2 - Exercise
Even just some light exercise such as going for a walk is amazing for helping you feel more awake and setting you up for having a more productive day as it helps the endorphins circulate your body and makes you feel more energised.
Goal 3 - Balanced Diet
It can be hard to give yourself a regimented diet but by being more conscious with what you eat will enable you to have a more balanced diet as well as ensuring you can still have the foods that you love!
Goal 4 - Skincare Routine
Personally, I feel as though a skincare routine is important in any lifestyle. It helps keep your skin maintained as well as giving you some time to pamper yourself and relax. It's also a good opportunity to experiment with new products!
Goal 5 - Mindfulness
By practicing mindfulness you are allowing your body and mind to relax and sink away from everyday life to give you chance to step back and breathe. It helps clear any negative emotions / thoughts and gives you time to yourself to relax and be at one with yourself.
Goal 6 - Gratitude
People say that when you practice gratitude you are happier in yourself as you are reflecting on the things that make you happy and make you feel grateful. So take a few minutes out of your day in the morning or at night time to sit back and reflect on 3 things that made you grateful today. Even if you've had a really rubbish day, there will be at least 1 or 2 things that made you feel grateful.
Goal 7 - Read
When we read we can escape from the realism of the world as well as learn and educate ourselves in new things. Set yourself the small goal of reading 10 pages a day. By reading 10 pages a day you could be reading 1 book a month (just about) which is a great target to have and means that reading is more manageable for everyday life.
Goal 8 - Learning
To progress in life and to experience new things we need to make a conscious effort to learn. Take an online course, read a non-fiction book, listen to a podcast - open your mind up to new possibilities and new things to gain greater experiences.
Goal 9 - Affirmations
By practicing affirmations daily, you are giving yourself the self confidence to shine and to know your worth everyday. Affirmations are a great building block to gradually recognise the self love that you deserve and to build upon that. Please know that giving yourself self love and confidence is not big headed, it is paramount for a healthy mind.
Goal 10 - Be The Best Version of You
Quite simple, make 2021 the year where you create the best version of you. Create and stick to goals that align with you and where you want to be in life - not setting goals that everyone else is doing. Make 2021 the year that you create a life that you love!
By incorporating just one of these goals into your life, you are making a big, positive change to your lifestyle. Make sure to keep a record of your habits as well by downloading your free habit tracker here.
