I can't quite grasp the concept that it has been almost half a year already since I posted my 2016 Goals blog post. I could have sworn I was only eating the remains of my Christmas chocolate yesterday, oh well. For today's post I decided to do a little bit of a recap on where I am with my 2016 goals and whether or not I have epically failed or conquered my 5 aims for this year.
Less Screen Time | Last year I felt as though I wasted a lot of my time sitting at my desktop scrolling through Youtube or any other form of social media and put all my other hobbies a side. Since then I haven't been on my desktop as often I make sure I come off hours in advance before bed and some days I don't even go on! Instead I like to read a book, colour in or watch something good on Netflix. I get much better nights sleep and I think it has decreased any stress or anxiety I sometimes get.
Keep Up To Date | I set myself a goal this year to try and keep up to date with going to the gym 3 days a week and keep up to date with any other life bits and bobs. Since then I have been attending the gym 3 times a week (unless I am working late!) and I have been keeping on track with my blog. It did take awhile to get used to working and making time to blog but I try to aim for 3 blog posts a week.
Use More, Buy Less | I've definitely been using up more products that I have owned for awhile but as for buying less...erm. I haven't been buying as much makeup as I used to but I do find I've been buying a lot more clothes or homeware. I still have the other half of the year to try and stop!
Blog More Me | I'm not too sure if I've incorporated more blog posts about me, I've definitely been sharing more of my life on my Instagram, but my blog hasn't changed as much. The only thing that's changed with my blog is I am writing a lot more lifestyle blog posts and swaying a little bit away from the world of beauty.
Talk Fitness & Healthy | Following on from the above I set myself a goal to write more blog posts about health and fitness and I definitely think I have been. I like to write about motivation to workout, feeling good about yourself and other health-type blog posts.
Overall so far I don't think I've done too bad on my 2016 goals, I can definitely tick a couple of these off. However the areas that still need improving on is buying less and blog more about me.
How are you getting on with your NYR's??
