Word of the year 2020 and some Goals

Happy new year folks! Here comes my first post of 2020.

How did you welcome the new year?

We didn't cut a cake or awake till midnight on 31st December to celebrate. Kids were sick and it was an usual day. Let it be! This didn't dampen my spirits anyways.

Iam excited to write this post and share my word of the year and a few Resolutions/ should I say goals? 

Word of the year is a specific word that I want to focus on in 2020.

Pin it for later!

This year's word would be " Self-Care". 
My word for 2019 was 'Slow down'. I took things slowly in 2019 but I want to focus on me and my health as well this year. This post gives a history of my previous words for each year. 

I want to focus on caring for my health, my body and my mind. Every goal I set this year will be aligned to this word.

Here are some goals:

Personal goals:

  • Yoga atleast thrice a week
  • Having nutritious breakfast at right time every day
  • Sleeping before 10 am
  • Making time for hobbies- especially blogging and painting 
  • Keeping Saturday for myself to relax

Family goals :

  • Focus on cooking healthy meals
  • Helping kids regularly with homework 
  • Watching movies together 
  • Traveling atleast twice a year
  • Making crafts and painting with kids

Professional goals:

  • Improving technical expertise 
  • Being a better leader and role model
  • Work by gut and intuition 
  • No carrying work to home and no thoughts of home at work
  • Maintaining strict work hours without feeling guilty

Travel Goals :

  • Long distance trips atleast twice a year
  • Leisure travels or one day trips atleast 4 per year
So, those are all my goals for the new year. I hope the 20 square (2020) brings good luck to you all. 

Do you believe in the word of the year? Do you set any goals? 
Do let me know in comments.

Until next time,

  1. Don't worry Mahathi, my New Year's even was equally boring with my broken arm making celebrations impossible.
    I do hope you achieve your goals - they seem doable. Good luck and God Bless

  2. Love your Word of the Year and like how you have specified your goals clearly in different areas. Good luck for achieving all your goals, Mahathy!

  3. This is a fantastic word Mahathy as it reflects how much you love yourself. Its pretty mature to focus on oneself this dedicatedly and I wish you all the best in achieving it.

    I love how neatly you have streamlined your goals into these 3-4 zones - I am sure you are going to ace it all.

    Wish you a very happy New Year and all the best for the coming year.

  4. They are all my goals for 2020, as well, Ramya! Love how you specified your goals so clearly in each of the areas.
    Best wishes for a wonderfully fulfilling 2020! May all that you wish and hope for come true! And that last one is really really important. Also, please don't beat yourself if you slip up occasionally. It's okay to let go, sometimes.
    Best wishes for the future

  5. Self care is an excellent word! And I love how you’ve broken down your goals by category. Wish you a fabulous 2020, and I hope you ace all your goals!

  6. Self care is really important. With the many things that are on our to do list, it becomes difficult to focus on ourselves. All the best for all your goals.
