First official post of 2018!!!
I swear the years start to fly by faster and faster as we get older. I have so many personal and professional goals this year, but for some reason they don’t seem as daunting as they used to. The first week in January is the most awkward time for everyone, but I incorporated a few goals this year that are keeping me inspired and on track, so I thought i’d share them with you in the hopes that it connects with someone!
SET A ROUTINE
Okay – this one is always on the top of my list being self-employed. When I have a routine, I thrive. I know it isn’t for everyone – but having a routine makes me stay on track so that I can get everything done that I need to. I used to always go work out first thing in the morning before I did any work. However, an unfortunate injury last year threw me way off track and it was my #1 goal for this year. I love getting my workout done first thing in the morning because it gives me a big dose of the endorphins and releases any anxiety I may have if I left it for later in the day.
Not going to lie – I let my emails take a back seat for the first couple days back from holiday because I desperately needed a refresh. I have been organizing and cleaning everything in our place and my office, and I swear that this has been cleaning and organizing my mind as well. Does that make sense? If my things aren’t in order, my brain is a mess. You know?
TAKE A BREAK
I definitely need to focus on this more than I have in the past because it is SO important to take little breaks throughout the day. There are a million things to get done at the start of the new year that we seem to forget to take a step back and breathe. I swear if you take just a 5 minute break to stretch, walk outside, etc. every 1-2 hours you will be so much more productive and focused in the long run.
I hope you are all having an awesome start to the new year and you are crushing your goals!!! I heard that accomplishing goals in much easier when your look cute and are insanely comfy. But I don’t know, that’s just what I heard. And if this outfit doesn’t scream cute and cozy at the same time, I don’t know what does! All outfit details are listed at the bottom of this post, as always, dolls. ♥ Happy 2018!!
