Motivational goals for summer 2024

Motivational goals to set this summer

Can you believe that we are already nearly halfway through the year?

If you haven't achieved what you set out to, there's still time!

Setting goals for the summer can be a great way to make the most of your time and ensure you accomplish things that matter to you.

Here are some suggestions for different areas of your life.

Personal development

Read a book a challenge

Set yourself a target of how many books you want to read over summer, and try to meet or even beat it if you can. Reading is a great way to relax and unwind, and if it's sunny you could sit outside and enjoy the sunshine too.

Learn a new skill

Now is the perfect time to start a new hobby or improve an existing one. There are plenty of choices out there to suit every taste, such as cooking, gardening, crafting or a musical instrument.

Take an online course

If you feel like developing your career would be a good use of time, you sign up to a course to develop your skills or learn about a new subject that would help in your current or future roles.

Health and fitness

Start a fitness routine

Staying fit and healthy is extremely important. Whether you're wanting to lose weight, improve cardio fitness or bulk up, you will need to commit to regular exercise, whether it's running, yoga, swimming, or a gym class.

Outdoor classes are ideal for summer with the weather being nice, and even give you the opportunity to meet new people.

Eat healthier

Struggle to eat healthy foods when you have a busy lifestyles? The key is to plan in your nutritious meals, and batch cook and freeze if you can.

Mindfulness and meditation

It's not just about keeping physically fit, but taking care of your mental wellbeing too. If you set yourself goals for becoming more positive as a person, you could practice mindfulness or meditation daily which will also improve mental health and reduce stress.

Career and education

Update your CV

Been a while since you updated your CV? The chances are that you have learnt new skills or taken on extra duties since you last looked. Even if you aren't necessarily looking for a new job, it's good to have it ready and up-to-date.

Set career goals

Fed up in your current job or want to progress? Then you will need to spend time identifying new opportunities and working towards specific career objectives, such as earning a certification or improving a particular skill.


Create a budget

If you are bad with money, you should take steps to track your spending and create a budget to save money. If you owe debts, there are lots of organisations and charities out there that can give you free advice and support.

Social and relationships

Reconnect with friends

Working most days, the majority of us don't get to spend a huge amount of time with our family and friends. It's important to make time to do this, as you never know when it might be the last time. 


Find a cause you're passionate about and volunteer your time. This could be anything from volunteering at your animal rescue to fundraising for a local charity you care about.

Adventure and fun


Plan a trip to a new destination, even if it’s a nearby city or a weekend getaway. Think about what you and your family (or friends) would most enjoy from a break and research destinations you are interested in.

Try new things

Make a list of fun activities you’ve never done and start checking them off, like hiking a new trail, visiting a museum, or trying a new sport.

Attend events

If you're looking for something you'll never forget, consider heading to festivals, concerts, or community events. There are plenty of large and local events throughout the UK, so loads to choose from depending on your requirements!

Home and organisation


If you are struggling for space in the home, go through your belongings and donate or recycle items you no longer need. You will probably find lots of you children's items that you could donate, as they grow out of things very quickly!


Refresh a room in your home with new décor or a fresh coat of paint. It's nice to refresh your interior once in a while, whether this is a full renovation or replacing curtains, cushions or throws.

Setting these goals can help you have a productive and enjoyable summer. Remember to be realistic with your goals and break them down into manageable steps to ensure you stay motivated and on track.
