Over and over, we experience that special feeling that the New Year offers a blank slate — or it might give us the feeling of having a new opportunity to get things right and to start fresh.
The start of a New Year is the perfect time to evaluate your life and set small goals for yourself and shine a new light on what’s important to you! Resolutions can help you make these small changes that will eventually make a big difference!
Whether you’re trying to get healthy, improve your productivity at work, or maybe to develop a new skill, chances are high the New Year is motivating you to make those changes.
But be wise; set goals that motivate you and really invite you to go for it.
Here is a tip: Limit resolutions to a manageable amount - develop and follow your own regimen. Don’t just rely on willpower alone to change your behavior. Small steps that are well planned are the way to go here.
That being said, try to break up big goals into smaller manageable goals - not much can happen without a plan. Spend a few careful moments to work out how you can achieve what you set out to do. It works wonders to set workable sub-goals.
And lastly, it could be that an error one can do when setting new goals is setting a goal on something you feel you should be doing instead of something you want to be doing. Always remember: You are the leading lady of your own life.
An epic scene from “The Holiday” 2006 lead actress Kate Winslet as Iris said, “You're so right. You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for God's sake! “
We asked around and here are some New Year’s resolutions to inspire you:
Work out to feel good, not be thinner.
Go a whole day without checking your email - hard but it will make a difference.
Do small Random Acts of Kindness.
Reduce your waste, care for the environment more.
Drink more water, sometimes with real lemon juice in it.
Talk to yourself with kindness, always!
