Fall Goals

08/09/2017
Snuggle up in a blanket, drink some tea and light some candles because fall is here and in today's post we're talking about my fall goals. 

I feel like spring and fall are always the seasons that instil change in people. Yes there are always New Years resolutions but those are fairly short lived as you quickly realize that you're in debt, gained weight, pale, and that winter is nowhere close to being done so your motivation dwindles fast.

Fall Autumn Goals

I love the idea of goal setting, but it's one thing to say that you're gonna do it and another thing to actually work towards your goals every day. Here are a few of my goals that I plan to accomplish for the fall and seeing as I'm writing it out to the whole wide internet, hopefully it'll make sure that I stay on track while also giving some inspiration to everyone that's reading it.

Note: Maybe I could do a follow up post to this and say how I've done and problems I've encountered or ways that have helped me to stay on track? Let me know in the comments if this would interest you!

Fitness

Recently I've gotten into yoga a lot more, but I also want to continue doing weight lifting so I have to make sure to go consistently and switch it up between the two of them. I feel as if it's so much easier to go to the gym in the summer because you don't have to deal with the cold weather and dark nights, however I do hope that I can continue to go 2-3 times a week, even as the weather starts to change. I recently went to women's only Goodlife and I'm pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. I'm not uncomfortable when I go to a regular gym, however I feel a bit more comfortable when I go to a women's only one, so I hope that going there will make it easier for me to go consistently. It also helps that there's a Loblaws downstairs from it because they have a great pastries area!

If you go to Goodlife Fitness in Canada, check out this post on my review of different workout classes that they offer!

Blogging

I want to be more consistent with posting on my blog and social media sites. I find that although I have the best of intentions to post and create content, I tend to procrastinate with actually making the final edits to my post, sometimes posting things much later than expected and having long lulls between content. I've now set up a schedule for posting with some other posts being sprinkled here and there. I don't want to post bad content so I want to have content created weeks in advance and write it down in my moleskine agenda to keep me on track. I also want to post every day on Instagram and be more active on Twitter and Pinterest. Follow me if you haven't yet :)

Continuing Education

Giving the fact that I work in finance, I'm currently in the process of studying for yet another finance exam (eye roll) which is so annoying but c'est la vie ya know? As this is something that I'm doing to further my career, I think it's important to work on other hobbies or skills for my own enjoyment and personal development. Things that I enjoy include learning languages, working on my blog and just learning new facts and concepts in general. With that being said, I want to read more books, listen to podcasts, watch more Ted talk videos and documentaries in order to expand my mind. Do you recommend anything specific for me to read/watch?

One of my first posts on my blog is about the importance of continuing education if you wanna check it out :)

Career
I'm one of those people who gets bored of their job after about 9-12 months. Once I've figured out what I'm doing and am able to do it on autopilot, my brain turns to mush and I just want to find another job. Currently that's where I'm at. I want to change jobs and look for something new and exciting within the bank so I'll have to do a lot of networking, additional education and workshops to meet new people and hone in on my existing skills. It's true when people say that networking is so important... even though I kinda wanna ignore that but alas, c'est la vie.

Do you guys have any goals that you're looking to complete this fall? Let me know in the comments below!
