As we start a brand new year, some might want to take this opportunity to start fresh. That means new year new me! So what do you have to do if you’re one of those people who look to begin your 2018 with healthier habits? Today, I’m going to go over some mindful practices to start your 2018 off right. These tips will help give you direction throughout the beginning of the year.
Choosing Healthier Habits/ Goals
When choosing goals, its important to ask yourself, “Are you happy with where you are?” Most of the time the answer is no. Reflect on your 2017 year and really figure out where you felt you were lacking. Take a look at your life to discover what is really important and make an effort to create goals that will improve your mind, body, and spirit.
Turning From Distractions
With so many distractions in our lives, it’s understandable that people are often deterred from goals they had previously set. It’s important to get your alone time away from people and technology to reflect on your goals for the year while hypothesizing how to achieve them. Your day might be compounded with a lot of things, but keep 2-3 tasks in your daily routine that will help further you to your goals. Once you’re able to create a routine that hits those 2-3 tasks, add in another task to help keep pushing towards your goals and so on.
The Company You Keep
Look at your relationships and the company you keep. If they are holding you back or not being supportive, maybe its time to find a new group of friends who will help you achieve your goals. If you’re not happy in the relationships your in, chances are that won’t happen unless you make an effort for change. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who can help support you and your cause. If you see that those people who you use to hang with disappear during this process, then you know who is really there for you to help you through your change.
