2020 Personal Goals

It’s no surprise that I love creating Goals, over the past twelve months, I have shared with you my Monthly Goals, these, in turn, help me to achieve both my Personal and Blogging Goals. January is the perfect month to create Goals for the whole year. Of course, that’s because it is, in fact, the start of the year! Also, there’s just something fresh and exciting about January.

Today, I am reflecting on my Personal Goals that I set at the beginning of 2019 and then creating new ones for 2020. 2019 was the first year I did this and to be honest, I’m very glad I did! It helped me to stay on track in the year and who doesn’t love achieving something. Then each month I’m helping to keep on track with my Goals by breaking them down monthly.

This Time Next Year Tag 2020

Has it really been one whole year since I posted This Time Next Year Tag 2019 on An Ocean Glimmer? 2019 went super quick, I still cannot believe it’s a new year and new decade. I can remember when I first shared the This Time Next Year Tag all the way back in 2017, that was when I first came across the tag and fell in love with the idea behind it.

What is the This Time Next Year Tag I hear you say? Well, it’s a tag created by Sarah Lemmon, aka Little Reader, it’s basically inspired by a British TV Show where you see people present their goals for next year. Then it flashes forward 365 days later to see if they have achieved them.

Goodbye October, Hello November!

I hope you’ve had a lovely start to November. I know I’ve been away for a while so I haven’t got any Goals to reflect on from the previous month. I will be creating new Goals for November. I’m really excited about the upcoming month. It’s my birthday month! I’m going to keep going on about it until the day after my birthday. I’m always really excited about my birthday, I don’t see that changing any time soon.

It’s primarily about events that are planned for the month, there are just a couple going on! Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to achieve all these Goals and continue to set them each month.

Fitness Goals for 2019

If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll notice I’ve been including a couple of Fitness Goals in my Monthly Goals. This might sound sad of me but these Goals have really pushed me and now I’m feeling really good about myself. I have now been visiting the Gym constantly for the past month. I would love to continue this as I think it’s improving my mental health.

I know we’re now halfway through the year but surely it’s never a bad time to start something new! Especially if it’s going to help with your overall health, I’m not one of those to wait until the New Year to change something about my life, there is no better time than the present to begin. I did though, wait until the beginning of June to begin my Gym membership, just something about it being a new month, new Goal.

Introduction: Mål Paper*

[AD GIFTED]

I did mention I wanted to share more stationery orientated posts on An Ocean Glimmer and I’m doing just that! I am always so proud of my blog, even more so when companies reach out to me and that’s the reason behind today’s post. It’s an introduction post to Mål Paper, a stationery company that produces stylish and simplistic stationery that helps to be more productive by focusing our minds on the most important tasks.

Their range of products is the result of seeking a solution to solve the common problem of jumping from one task to the next, without prioritising them or even completing the previous task. They were tired of having countless ‘to-do’ lists on notepads, notebooks and journals that did nothing more than complicate goals and tasks further, to the point of feeling overwhelmed and uninspired to hold themselves accountable.

Monthly Goals // June 2019

Goodbye May, Hello June!

I hope you’ve had a lovely start to June. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of May. Then create new Goals for June, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. I already have loads planned! I don’t think I’m home for one single weekend, it’s going to be a long but fun month.

As I explained recently in my 2019 Personal Goals Update, creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. If you want to see what I got up to in May, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // May 2019 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done.

2019 Blogging Goals Update

It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in January, I shared with you my 2019 Blogging Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Blogging Goals and provide an update on progress.

I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.

Shall we begin with the update on my 2019 Blogging Goals?
