What I Hope to Achieve in 2018

We’re already over a week into 2018 and I haven’t really made any resolutions. I don’t really know why, I just sort of feel like I know the goals I have for 2018 and don’t need a specific resolution to affirm them. I also don’t always find resolutions incredibly helpful; I work really hard at them in the beginning but that tends to drop off and I end up having to pick them up later in the year.

So instead of having set resolutions, I thought I’d write down my goals and aims for 2018. I think this way they’re a little easier to work towards and the fact that they’re a little more broad makes them easier to achieve – there’s nothing worse than feeling like you’ve failed at the end of the year. Here’s what I hope to achieve in 2018.

  • Travel more. Travelling is one of my absolute favourite things – if I could do it for a job I would. I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible places in my lifetime and I definitely want to continue that in 2018. I already have some amazing plans for trips this year, but I have a serious case of wanderlust and just want to travel as much as possible.
  • Get healthier. Every year I have the same resolution of ‘losing weight’, but I think a more positive and achievable goals is to get healthier. I actually cut out a lot of sugar from my diet at the end of 2017 and have been feeling so much better for it (I’m more of a salt person anyways) but I really want to eat even healthier. I also want to try and get more into exercise this year, although I can’t really do any cardio I’m very prepared to focus on my abs – if you know any good workouts please recommend some!
  • Improve my blog content. I really enjoyed doing more makeup tutorial style posts last year and I definitely want to continue that into 2018. One of my favourite style of posts to do is something travel-based so I absolutely want to do more of those too. I’m hoping this one won’t be too difficult to achieve despite also doing my degree, but I’m planning on being very organised so hopefully it’ll work out!
  • Take more photos. Landscape photography is one of my favourite things and I really want to get more into it in 2018, especially since I just got my new phone and the camera is amazing. I also want to improve my blog photography and maybe get more into flatlays. I’m saying this now: 2018 is going to be the year of photography for me.

So those are my goals for 2018! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what you hope to achieve this year. See you next time,

    Such great goals! I also want to start doing more tutorial-style posts on my blog. My main concern is the photos. Just find it so hard to take good quality photos by myself.

      I have an app to control my camera with my phone which I find really helps!
