Last year I wrote a blog post explaining my process for reviewing the past year and setting goals for the year ahead ( This year I figured I should film the process and show you what I do step by step so that you can do the same thing at home! I’m a big believer in writing down your dreams and goals and every year I’m astonished when I look back and see exactly how many of my goals actually came true!


No matter how “bad” you think this year has been, I guarantee that if you do this process you’ll feel a LOT better about your year. It’s easy to forget all the wonderful things we did and achieved over the past 12 months but going through it is a wonderful way to close the chapter on that year before starting a new one.

I like to use Danielle Laporte’s areas of life from The Desire Map to set goals. The areas are:

1. Livelihood and Lifestyle
2. Body & Wellness
3. Creativity & Learning
4. Relationships & Society
5. Essence & Spirituality

This gives me a really broad overview of how I want the year to go in those different areas of life. I’m not a fan of resolutions because I think they are depressing and negative, but I always list my goals and set an intention for the year ahead. In 2016 my intention was Collaboration and for 2017 my intention is Focus & Prioritize! I prefer to keep it to broader general terms instead of focusing on 1 specific action I absolutely need to do as a “resolution”. How many of us ever even keep resolutions anyway? They are completely unrealistic.

This project goes hand in hand with making a vision board. If that’s something you’d be interested in learning how to do please leave a comment on the video below and I’d be happy to show you mind and take you through my process! I need to update mine anyways 😉

Some of you may wonder why I didn’t show you a snapshot of my finalized Year In Review & Goal Setting board. I thought about it but honestly goals are personal and it wasn’t something I felt comfortable sharing over the internet, I hope you can understand 🙂

On one final note, I have 10 spots left for women who’d like to join my Lunar Yoga program for the month of January 2017!
