I began writing this post and realized that I was saying a lot of cliche phrases that you’ve probably heard every year. “Keep your goals managable. Have a concrete goal for the new year. Keep track of your goal. Consistency Consistency Consistency.” Instead of adding the same words to the internet, I have found a couple of blog posts from the New Year and decided to share them with y’all with some of my thoughts on them
This link gives a little history about New Years Resolutions (which I thought was pretty cool) as well as adding 10 things to think about when making New Years Resolutions
These are 12 habits that go into a self-care out look. Rather than trying to add a matierial good, this blog suggests to take more time for yourself, becoming more mindful in our day to day life. Something to read if you are interested in being more kind to yourself.
This blog post talks about the top career resolutions and how to implement them. If you are looking to better your work life, this would be a good start.
I liked this one the most out of those that I read. Every point is a great step in to making and accomplishing your New Years Resolutions. One point that I want to emphasize is preparing yourself for change. Everyone wants to change in some way, but it can sometimes come at the expense of what it comfortable. In my experience in the therapy room (and in life) many people are avoidant to change and tend to veer back to their typical day to day habits. Be kind to yourself and notice these times where you are veering back to something you are aiming to change. acknowledge the moment and move towards where you aimed to be.
Good luck on your New Years Resolutions 🙂
I hope to hear from you about anything that works for you throughout the year. Send me an email
This post talks about emotional intelligence. I enjoyed the read (and this blog). Take care of yourselves until next time.
