I'm a very goal-orientated person who finds great satisfaction in ticking something off ‘the to-do list’. So, love them or hate them, in 2015 I / we set a few attainable goals – not resolutions – in the hope that they would pave the way for a healthy satisfaction rather than guilt ridden intentions.

As January is the start of the calendar it’s only natural for it to be a time to consider what is ahead and reflect on the previous year. I'm coming at it from a different angle this year, I'm choosing to consider the positives from the past rather than beat myself up about something I didn't achieve, succeed in or move forward with.

Here are a few of those 2015 goals I'm happy to say we did manage - including a few for 2016, which I'm hoping will encourage you to reflect on similar ideas for yourself.
