Out with the Old, in with the New.

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!
