Setting Goals in 2021

It is safe to say that setting goals for 2021 is going to be a little different from previous years. Here at Busy B, we have some handy tips that our team follow to help achieve their goals. Take a read of our top tips for setting goals in 2021:

Appreciate the small achievements

This one was inspired by Edinburgh-based influencer Wearwhatworks and what she calls her ‘Small Wins of the Day’ (or SWOTD). We love the idea of appreciating small achievements every day, whether that is doing a workout or trying out a new recipe. It is very easy to let little achievements pass you by but appreciating these little goals can really help improve your mood.

Manage your time

With most of us left with more time on our hands, it is important to make sure we are managing our time wisely. Whether this means allocating time to read a book or to manage your working day, planning out your day with your diary will help increase productivity and achieve daily goals. If you are working from home, managing your time can help add more structure to your day and avoid the distractions of your home environment.

Learn a new skill

2020 was certainly the year for learning new DIY skills! From having more spare time, to spending more time in our homes, lockdown has proven to be a great time for doing a little bit of DIY. If home DIY is not your thing, then why not try learning a new skill like knitting or painting. Whether the outcome of what you create is a success or not, you will certainly have fun along the way!

Create a monthly budget

Money is one of the most common causes of stress but simply creating a monthly budget can help you feel more in control of your finances. With our clever Budget Book, you can record your monthly incoming and outgoing spend and plan out your savings.

Spend less time online

Spending less time online could be one of the toughest goals to achieve on this list. Cutting down your time online can really help to improve your mental health and productivity. To reduce this, try to cut down your screen time or set time limits on your phone for certain apps. Give yourself the time to speak or spend time with loved ones where you can and do more activities off-screen.

Document your goals

Taking note of your achievements, big or small, in our Goals Diary can help you reflect on your achievements. It’s always important to remind yourself of what you have accomplished.

We hope you find our top tips helpful and wish you all the best for 2021!
