How To Make 2020 Your Year


Every year it's the same - we all want the best year yet, we all want to achieve more and do more and be the best version of ourselves and live our best lives, but more often than not, a few weeks in, we forget about all this and just continue living as we normally do and nothing changes. In life, you've got to be prepared to make a change if you want better and that's why today I'm listing off different ways you can help make 2020 your best year yet.

1) Put Yourself First:

If you haven't already, make this year the year to prioritise yourself and your own wants and needs and wishes. Putting yourself first is so important sometimes, but we forget to do it and so I'm encouraging you all to put yourselves first this year, even if that means saying no to some people sometimes. Make yourself a priority.

2) Give Something Back:

Whether that's through volunteering your time, donating some clothes and home ware during a declutter or starting a fundraiser. Giving something back can make you feel really good and it's a great way to spend your time.

3) Practise self-care:

I've gone on loads about self-care over the past year, but it's more than just popping on a face mask one evening - though putting on a face mask can be considered self-care. Check in with yourself every once in a while and see how you're doing in terms of your mental wellbeing, any challenges you're facing as well as your overall happiness and then work out how to improve these. Don't be afraid to take that much needed time for yourself, so you can come back stronger and more ready than ever to face whatever life throws at you. Check out my guide to self care for more info.

4) Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone:

If there's one thing you make a habit of this year, it's got to be stepping out of your comfort zone. There's a quote I really like and that's: 

"Life begins where your comfort zone ends."
 And it's so true. By making a habit of getting out of your comfort zone you'll find the world of possibility just opens up to you. So stop holding yourself back and just go for it.

5) Make Use Of Your Skills:

Have a talent or skill that you're not using? Make 2020 the year you decided to put it to some use. Good at writing for an audience? Why not start a blog? 

6) Try Something New:

Whether that's a new hobby, check out my ten great hobby ideas post, or travelling to a new place, make 2020 the year you try something new. It'll open up your world that little bit more and will make life all the more interesting.

7) Set Achievable Goals:

My last point is to set yourself some achievable goals. Now, this doesn't work for everybody, some people just don't like setting goals and that's completely fine, but for me and many others it does work and so try set yourself five manageable and achievable goals this year so at the end of the year you can look back and see what you've achieved.

That's all for this post, I hope you found it useful. Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below.
