5 Tips For: Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions + Free Printable

New year, new me

Hello, Kind Friends! Today I have a fun edition of 5 Tips For that shares how you can make 2016 the best year possible and rock those resolutions you’ve been trying to conquer for years.

I used to be the resolution queen, but these past two years I’ve been having trouble making what I want for my future a priority – and that has got to change. This year I’m going back to my roots and making sure all of my resolutions fit the SMART goals system, as well as making weekly and monthly resolutions to help me reach my larger goals in an almost step-like process.

In this post and in the video below, I share with you a bit of how I’m planning on rocking my goals this year and how you can to.


What are SMART goals? SMART is an acronym for what kind of a goal you want to set.

Is your goal…

  • Specific
  • Measureable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

And here are some further explanations:

Specific: Is your goal specific enough? General goals like “I want to lose weight” are overly general, because then even one pound lost counts as a success.

Measureable: Does your goal have something you can quantify, or measure, to know if you succeeded? This could be passing an exam with a certain percentage, gaining or losing a certain body fat percentage, or any other quantifiable number.

Attainable: Attainable goals are ones that feel challenging but also in the realm of possibility. If a goal is too easy, it isn’t a motivator. But if your goals have a little bit of stress involved, enough to keep you working hard, then they are more attainable in the long run. Does your goal meet this criteria?

Relevant: For a goal to work, it has to be something you are both willing and able to do. Is this goal relevant to your current life (ie. will you be motivated to do it) while also being realistic to what you are capable of?

Timely: Goals with a time-frame are much more likely to come true because the pressure you have to meet certain criteria within a window of time is much more motivating than “someday.” Do your goals have an end-date?

Goals that fit all five criteria are SMART goals that you can make come true. If you want this shown in a more easily digestible format, with a few other easy tips to help make setting your goals easier – join my mailing list to get a free printable file on the SMART goals system. Your email confirmation will share with you the free download link.

I can’t wait to share with you everything I have in mind for the new year. You’ll probably be surprised by a few of them!

What goals do you have for 2016? Let’s talk about them in the comments, I’d love to check in with you guys.

You Are Only 5 Steps Away From Your Dream Life

You can make your dreams come true. Free printable on
Living the life you have always dreamed… it’s not typically easy. Although my life is not one I would ever consider to be perfect, it really has been a dream compared to where I thought I was going to be 5 years ago.

Helping people realize the life they want to live, or feel like they were meant to live, has recently become so important to me. I know my blog may seem like a cluster of beauty reviews and random topics but when I think about the posts that mean the most to me, they have to do with helping others.

So I’ve created a free 5 step guide to living your dream life. All you have to do is sign up for my mailing list and the download will be sent to you within moments. If you think there are some ways it can be improved, please do let me know.


This guide isn’t going to get you to the life you want. You are going to get yourself there. This piece of paper is just a simplified roadmap to help you get started.

I wouldn’t call me life a dream life quite yet, but it is a dream compared to my past. It’s only going to get better with all the hard work I’m now putting into it.

We can do this.
