I know that there are a million articles about 2018 goals - and this will probably be no different from the rest, but i thought writing about my goals and expressing what they really mean to me will really help keep me motivated, so if i'm ever feeling unmotivated and want to give up, i can read this and remember why i started!

The reason i caption this "healthy lifestyle" and not "eating healthy" or "working out" is because sometimes setting goals too specific can make you feel restricted or forced, and can be un-motivating. Setting a goal for a healthy life style or HEALTHIER lifestyle, does mean you can't have that treat - it means just don't have that treat EVERY day, you don't need to workout everyday and have the body of a model who has been training for YEARS, just set a goal to workout 3 days a week, then work your way up to 4, and so on. The reason this is one of my personal goals, is because like many others, i feel 100x more confident when I treat my body well. And confidemce is honestly the best feeling, to be just be carefree and not worry what others are thinking of you!

This one may sound odd - but i'm a really at home person. I don't make alot of efforts to see people, and i miss out on good times because of it. This goal is reallysmall and simple to just treat my friends and family, and just people around me better. Treat people how you want to be treated - if i want people to put effort in with me, i need to do the same with them. I only want positivity surrounding me this year!

Reading is so relaxing, and takes my mind to another place, and no matter how much i know i love reading, ill always choose Netflix first! This year i want to set a goal for myself to read 12 books - a book a month - and after every great book I read, I want to write a review article on it
