Things To Do Before 2016

Things To Do Before 2016 The July Journal

How quickly has this year gone?! I can’t quite deal how fast it has gone. The end of this year marks the half-way point in my degree, my sister is having her first baby therefore I become an aunty and of course a new year is fast approaching. On Lauren’s blog, What Lauren Did Today, she posted a list of goals that she wanted to achieve before the year was out and I thought it would be a lovely way to start ‘blogmas’ off (yes I know it’s a little late!). On a side note, I won’t be participating in blogmas because I have a really busy schedule at the moment with a lot of deadlines next week and attempting to find a work placement, however I recently left my job so when I break up for the Christmas holidays I am going to try and post a lot more. Anyway let’s move on to my to-do list for December.

Reach 400 followers on Bloglovin’

Reach 375 followers on Instagram

Finish the three books that I have started including Girl Online: On Tour by Zoella, Binge by Tyler Oakley and Yes Please by Amy Poehler.

Meet Up With Friends (my social life really needs looking at before 2016)

Say Goodbye to dairy products for good! Due to how stressful my life has been, I started eating dairy a lot more. It’s made me feel sluggish and horrible because the dairy industry is worse than anything and I feel bad contributing to it!

Adopt an ‘I can’ attitude. Since losing my job, I have felt rubbish. It has probably shown across social media as well cause I haven’t been posting much. I just feel like I have no self-confidence and I’m no good at anything.

Take ten minutes of my time each day to work on my Headspace sessions. They really have helped calm my anxiety and panic attacks down.

Organise my bedroom and throw out all the rubbish!

What do you hope to achieve before 2016? Let me know! Also go and thank Lauren for coming up with the post idea!

  1. Aw I love your list! I hope you achieve everything you want to. I’m also going to try to start ditching dairy – I think I might try a ‘vegan day’ once a week, or maybe just try to have one completely vegan meal a day. Im hoping it will be a steady transitional thing.

    Also congrats on becoming a soon-to-be auntie!

      I think I will be able to ditch the dairy again cause I’ve done it before. Thank you Lauren, I am really excited about it! :) xx

  2. I really hope your reach your goals. I’ve had to change to a healthier lifestyle/diet do to allergies in the last few months so I’m hoping to be really into the swing of it by 2016!

    Don’t beat yourself up about loosing a job!! Like you say an “I can” attitude is so important. Believing in yourself is the most important thing. I hope you reach your goals! xx

    For sorting your room out, have you looked at the Marie Kondi book? I am reading it at the moment and I can’t wait to start throwing stuff away when i’ve finished. It’s got really great reviews so i’m very positive as to the effect it will have!
