5 Life Goals That Are Well Worth Making

Things are a bit rubbish right now in the world, but it shouldn’t stop us from setting and achieving goals and planning for the future. Here are a few ideas to add to your bucket list to get done when this is all over.

Get the body you’ve always wanted

For most of us, there’s a significant difference between the body we want, and the one we currently have. Easy access to fast food, sedentary jobs with long hours and unhealthy coping strategies might have left your body in a state that can be described as ‘less than its best.’ However, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Unlike with many things in life, the way you take care of your body is totally within your control- eating better, exercising more, drinking more water and getting enough sleep will have a massive impact on the way that you look and the way that you feel. You don’t need to aim for perfection but it’s good to make the most of what you have. Get fit and toned, and work towards achieving a bmi that’s in the normal range for you.

Secure your dream job

We spend such a long time in the workplace that if you’re unhappy here, this unhappiness is very likely to spill over into the rest of your life too. Making a change can be scary but could be one of the best things you ever do- start from the bottom and work your way up in the career that you’ve always dreamed of doing. Maybe you want to become a psychologist or a teacher. Maybe you want to design theme park rides with a water slide manufacturing company?! Whatever it is that interests you and your passions lie in is worth pursuing.


Of course, no one is travelling right now. Coronavirus put a stop to that back in March, and at present none of us really know when we can jet off again to sunnier climes. But there’s time to research and plan, to save for any trip you want to take. Decide what country you’d like to visit next and what sort of things you’d like to see and do when you get there. Travel adds so much value to your life

Help others

You might not feel as though you have it as good as some people, but if you have food in your cupboards and a roof over your head, you’re much more fortunate than you might realise. If you don’t have money to donate then why not donate some of your time helping a good cause. It could be anything from volunteering at a local soup kitchen to an animal shelter.

Find a partner and enjoy life together

If you’re ready to meet someone and settle down, why not take the plunge? If you’ve been single for a while this can feel like a huge step but could be a fantastic decision. Meeting someone whose personality compliments yours, who makes you happy and introduces you to new things you wouldn’t have come across yourself can make life much more rewarding.

Through What Metrics Should You Plan For The Future?

It can often feel quite hard to plan our forward progress in life. Of course, some decisions are made for us. If you realize you are having a child, you’re sure to use that news to orbit all of your decision making for some time. Yet sometimes, the thing we are most lacking in life is a direction. This is not simply the case because you refuse to look at your options, or that you feel unable to choose something. It may simply be that you’re completely spoiled for choice.

We understand. It’s hard to figure out where you want to go, or what change you wish to make. For instance, you may wish to live in a great home, but you’re not exactly sure where that should be, or where you should aim to build your life. Of course, no plan for the future is completely watertight and fixed in position, but it can be nice to have at least a guideline to orient your actions.

So, what metrics would we recommend? With the following advice, we hope you can find this process easier and more comfortable than expected:

A Craft & Passion

Developing a craft and passion that works for you can be immensely rewarding, and when you find it, throwing yourself into that can be important. For some it might be working with animal rescue shelters, or for others, it may simply be starting a family and being the best parent possible. When you follow your heart and gut, no matter how that looks to other people, you will find the place you are meant to be. But more than that, viewing a craft or passion as a discipline you can improve in and become a master of will usually help the money take care of itself, even if this has to be a secondary goal.

Stability As A Blanket

Stability is important for many, and so it can be worthwhile to understand where your roots are, or where you hope to build. We can be nomads for a large portion of our life, but settling somewhere can grant us many more benefits such as long term friendship, a stable career. or at least relationships that develop. Where are you tied to on this Earth? Could you be the first in your family to situate somewhere you have dreamed of? For instance, meeting the developer Roger Osteen could help you feel more interested in a newly developed community. Consider yourself the pioneer, and build the stability to guide you there. This way you have adventure and comfort bound together in the same measure.

The People You Care For

It can be important to tie your life decisions to those you care about. Perhaps you’re interested in staying near your parents, or maybe you wish to move to a place that holds your cultural roots. It’s worth making this ‘life plan’ list with the aid of the connections you have, and weighing up their importance. From there, you can feel more informed no matter what decision you come to.

With this advice, we hope you can plan for the future using reliable metrics to guide you.
