Tips about setting goals that are actually achievable and gearing up for a great year without making outrageous resolutions.
It's time for a resolution that doesn't leave you feeling like you're not good enough as is! 2017's #resolution: loving yourself.
Think of some #goals that can reduce self-negativity. Maybe it's reading a positive #affirmation every morning.
Motivation doesn't just happen, you have to claim it! Set goals, write them down, take action and motivation will come.
2016 is over. If you spend time looking regrettably at a door that has closed, you might miss seeing a door that has opened.
Keep a book of positive notes for when you're feeling down. Look back on past accomplishments.
Turn over a new leaf by exercising for the #EMOTIONAL payoff. Move in a way that's beneficial to you & don't belittle your efforts!
Starting fresh can include rekindling important relationships. Send a card to someone you haven't talked to in a while.
Straighten up your room. Having your bed made and less clutter helps you feel fresh and more in control of your life.
Accept the days that don't feel so productive, life isn't a competition of productivity! You are just as worthy when you are still.
Do you have a passion to share this year? Check out this list of tips for how to plan and lead a workshop.
Trying to eat better doesn’t need to be drastic! Even drinking more water may be the first step to feeling better this year!
Ok, it’s still winter, but spring cleaning can happen now! Clearing actual clutter can help declutter your mind.
Be aware of when you're stressed & needing a moment for yourself. Awareness is the first step to change.
Be present in the moment. Don't always dwell on what's coming next-- take the time to enjoy the here and now.
Choose a recipe and make a meal you've always wanted to try! Challenge: buy random ingredients & see what happens.
Rearrange your space. Reorient your rooms to have more positive energies, be cozy, or feel more organized.
Try taking a class to learn something new. If there's nothing locally that interests you, check out Coursera, Udacity or Skillshare.
Make it a goal to speak to others respectfully and expect the same in return. Tell people if you are offended by what they say.
Acquire some new work-related skills by attending free workshops. Check out your local library to start.
Get a #penpal (but be safe about it!). Gaining a new far-away friend can bring fresh perspective and purpose to your life.
Be open to change and to admitting when you’re wrong. Letting go of past mistakes is crucial when you want to move forward.
Try and talk to someone that maybe you normally wouldn't. It could be an incredibly rewarding experience!
Post goals on your nightstand so that when you're having trouble getting out of bed, you can remind yourself of what’s important.
Try new foods. Want to try something again that you didn't like in the past? Ask for a mild variety & have it prepared properly.
Don't underestimate the positive effect that a #community can have on your life. Who/what is your community?
Don't get caught up in trying to impress others, one of the best qualities you can have is simply kindness.
Having trouble getting out of bed? Try something new & put your alarm across the room so you have to get up to turn it off.
Don't try to multi-task. You might think doing two things at once would be better, but it can be up to 40% less efficient.
Accept that you can't complete everything. Your to-do list should change each day, to reflect where you are and what's important.
If today wasn't so great, that's okay. Tomorrow is an entirely different day, and there is hope in that.
Plan a regular movie, games, or dinner night with your friends. Turning over a new leaf means creating new great #memories!
