Home>> Start Off The New Year Right
The New Year is a time where often we make resolutions. For many of us, we recognize the new year as the start of a fresh chapter. We’ve gathered some helpful tips on how to ensure you start your year off right!
If you are one that chooses to make goals, make sure they are attainable, and framed around a mindset rather than a specific goal. This helps take off the pressure of meeting certain goals, as well as feeling unsatisfied when those static goals are met.
One of the most important aspects of making goals is putting habits behind them that allow you to reach them.
For example, if you have one overarching goal, set up daily, weekly and monthly habits that you need to adopt in order to accomplish that goal. Goals without habits are simply unattainable.
Perhaps focusing on your physical health is at the top of the list. Instead of setting a goal such as “lose 15 pounds” try a goal that sounds more like “I want to move my body every day, in a way that feels good to me” this will allow you to feel a sense of accomplishment each day as you move towards changing your life to adapt to that.

Reading is a great way to further your knowledge and decrease stress. Instead of aiming to “read more” set a more measurable goal such as reading ten pages each night.
