I think I speak for the majority of everyone, when I say thank God we made it through 2020! It has been a rough year for everyone so stepping into the new year is a bit of relief.
No one wants a repeat of 2020, and while we can’t control things that goes on around us, we can do our best to control our own happiness and put forth the effort into living our best lives. Stepping into a new year, you may have goals or resolutions that you’ve written down which is great, but they can also add unwanted pressure that leads to stress. Here are some mindful tips when striving to reach your New Year goals:
You don’t have to do everything at once. Give yourself time to achieve your goals at a slower pace. You don’t have to rush to get things done. When you set your goals, make sure you set them achievable in a realistic time frame. That way you’re not beating yourself up if you don’t make a “deadline.”
Treat Your Goals Like Your Job
If you work in the corporate world, then you know working on the clock may have it’s benefit. Schedule work time and schedule breaks as if you would at work. Time blocks are important when it comes to achieving your goals. It helps you to stay focused and also help to ensure you are incorporating wellness into your goals.
Create A Routine
Creating a routine will help you reach your goals a lot easier. For example, if you create a schedule as mentioned above, that schedule will become routine. This helps you to stay focused and not deviate from anything that isn’t help you reach your goals.
Take A Break
Rest your body. Rest your mind. When you are working towards your goal, we can get so caught up in it, that we literally forget to eat, get an adequate amount of sleep or even watch something good on TV. Taking breaks are important because it gives your body and mind a chance to reset and refocus.
I hope you reach all of your goals this year! You got this!
Happy New Year!
