If you have goals that weren’t accomplish last year but you still would like to achieve, write them down and work towards them with your goals for 2016 – its never too late to achieve them!

Say ‘Yes’ More:
Take advantage of this year and make it more eventful by saying ‘yes’ more often! Say ‘yes’ to more opportunities that you would normally decline in previous years – you never know where one opportunity that you agree to can lead you!
Take Up A Hobby:
If you have always wanted to start a new hobby or try something new, this is the year to do it! Whether it be learning how to play a new instrument, cooking, painting, or learning how to speak a new language, try it all because you never know what you might enjoy! Plus you might also meet new people who enjoy the same interests as you – double win!
Make More Time For Friends And Family:
One goal we should all have for 2016 is making more time for our loved ones! We are all busy with our daily schedules of work, school, and hobbies, that sometimes we forget about making time for the people that truly matter in our lives. Plan a trip, have a party, or simply go out to coffee with friends and family, and show them how much they mean to you!
Give Back To Your Community:
After a month of receiving from the holidays, give back by helping out your community in different ways! Donate to your favourite charity, or help out a neighbour that is in need. Giving back feels good, and is a perfect way to kick start 2016!
Log Off Your Phone Every Once In A While:
Our smartphones can be a blessing and a curse at times – it keeps us connected with the ones we love, but it can keep us distracted from what really matters in life. Log off your phone and social media accounts every once in a while this year and keep in touch with the finer and simpler things in life that are worth experiencing first hand!
