June is patiently waiting for us around the corner. So it’s common for us to check-in and see how our goals are developing. I don’t know about you, but I need a little reminder to stay on track. That’s why it’s really important, at the end of every month, to check in with yourself, figure out what’s going right and set yourself some goals for the next month. I’m ready, are you? As May comes to a close, how can you start investing in yourself again?

1. Revamp your healthy living

It’s important to keep your body nourished and energized if you’ve found yourself lacking a little over the past few weeks never fear. Remind yourself why you started. Instead of viewing it as not being able to eat what you want, view it as getting the right balanceAnd it doesn’t have to be boring. There are plenty of recipes to try for any time of the day.

2. Assess your finances

Making sure your bills are paid and your savings are looking good. By the end of the month, there’s a chance things are looking a little lonely – but it’s a great time to figure out why. Investing time and effort into your finances can save you a lot of headaches and worry! So it’s important to be wise and serious when it comes to your bank account. Make sure to budget yourself when it comes to impulsive purchases, while also making sure you have food in your fridge. Use an app like Daily Budget to have your own pocket financial advisor.

3. Keep working out

I know it’s easy to start strong and fall out of love with tough workouts, but look at what you’ve done so far this month and figure out how to increase it by next month. You’ve got time to do multiple workouts a week or focus on one particular area of your body, so don’t worry. Check out some ideas on doing that here!

4. Plan, plan, plan

Having a plan for how you want to grow is crucial when it comes to your goals and aspirations. The best thing about planning is that – it’s meant for anything and can range from weeks to months or even years. Ask yourself where you would like to be in a specific amount of time, and see how you plan to make that happen. If you want to smash all your goals and plans right now, The Ultimate Blog Plan is the only blogging workbook that focuses on your big dreams and will actually get you there, it’s not about reading about success it’s about reaching for it! We now have free worldwide shipping for a limited time only – so get it before it’s gone.

5. Give yourself a performance review

How are your career goals coming along? If you haven’t had a performance review, give yourself one. What did you do well this month? Did you make any mistakes? What are your goals for next year? Be critical. If you haven’t yet reached your dream position or job, outline the steps you need to take to get there and try your best to stick to them in the next month!
