New Years Resolutions are hard and harsh - we start 100 km/hr and eventually pull the hand break up - anyways who ever sticks to new years resolutions anyway?
In April, I realised I needed to set myself smaller goals which could put me in position to win in the long run. Now, I set myself three small goals to accomplish throughout the week instead of Year.
I normally categorise my goals into body and mind goals. Those have given me the opportunity to challenge myself on my own procrastination, creating new habits and potentially trying new things when I always used to say I had NO TIME for.
Here are some examples of goals I set myself this past couple week:
- Meditate every morning
- 20 Days Yoga
- 15 Minutes Stretch 5x Week
- 3 Litres Water Daily
- Read 25 pages a day
- Listen 1-2 Podcasts daily
- 3 Things Gratitude Journal every Morning
- A Week Off Social Media
- No Phone after 8 pm
- Limit of 1 Coffee a Day
- 10,000 steps daily
- 40 Minutes Workout 4x Week
- Morning Meditations
- Go to bed before 11pm
- Join a Community Volunteer Program
- Explore a New Walking Trail
It is also important to keep track of the small goals and check them off daily. I normally write them down and create columns so I can verify and assess my progress throughout the week.

the template I use every week.
It is important that the small goals flow naturally. They are not made to add more stress. Make them simple, specific, measurable, attainable and time bound.

As you can see exercising are in most of my goals as it nourish and fires up my self-esteem. I pretty much only workout outdoor and at home with fabric resistance bands - If you still haven't tried our products, we are offering a 10% discount to our Blog readers.
