5 Things To Be Better at in 2020

As we have stepped into a new year and a new decade it's time to start with new mindsets and habits. The beginning of the year has been hectic but there is still time to start from a new track.

Here are 5 things I am determined to be better at in 2020. 




1. Saving Money

I have never been good at counting and saving money. Though I rarely buy expensive stuff  I may often do shopping on the spur of the moment and never seem to have any savings left by the end of the month.
This year I will try to do my grocery shopping monthly instead of weekly. I am sure the less I go to the supermarket, the less I will be tempted to spend money on all the discounted offers. Instead, I will purchase more from local stores or online.

2. Being Organized

I can't stand a mess and I try my best to keep my house and things tidy but you can hardly call me an organized person. Planning is usually boring for me but I have felt the necessity to make it a habit. It is so easy to stand the stress of everyday life when you are organized. I just need to divide my chores and duties evenly during the week in order not to fuss a lot over excess work.

3. Self Care

I am going to make my mental and physical self-care a priority in 2020. This will include healthy eating and physical activity. I am sure that by improving my diet and drinking more water I can fight my skin and hair dryness .
I will also keep insisting on my "me" time without feeling guilty of being a selfish mom, daughter, and wife.

4. Minimalism

No matter how hard I try to avoid buying unnecessary stuff, I still find my house full of excess and distracting stuff . Minimalism is not a trend I am going to follow but a necessity for my mental health. Decluttering your living space may give you peace and clarity and will let you focus on what is important. I will try to get rid of unnecessary stuff by donating and restrain from purchasing duplicate items and clothing. 

5. And, finally reading

It's a pain to admit that I hardly find the time to read a book these days. I am really guilty of spending a lot of time on social media.  I will do my best to go to bed with a book instead of a mobile phone and read every night before sleeping.

Have you set any goals or resolutions in 2020?

What are you planning to be better at this year?

  3. I love your goals! I am working on many of the same. I also am focused on being more present when I speak to people. I am working hard to live in the moment and to listen instead of react. Great post!
