Hello everyone, and happy new year!! Although we are still cleaning up from 2020, the world is ready for a better year. In fact, many reported hearing more fireworks than ever when ringing in 2021. With the distribution of the vaccine, we will once again be able to live our lives as we please. Here’s to a better year!
New Year, Better You
You always hear about “new year, new me”. But this is how resolutions fail so quickly, ending in some serious cognitive dissonance. Instead, just focus on improving one aspect of your life, whether it be your lifestyle or personality. Having one specific goal will help you stay on track and will be more realistic to accomplish.
Need some ideas rather than go to the gym/eat healthier? How about working on your professional self? Look at LinkedIn and take their relevant courses. Study more words to expand your vocabulary. Re-evaluate the information you currently take in from news and social media. Adjust your following to align with a more intelligent circle. Or, maybe this will be the year you step out of your comfort zone and go after that dream job you’ve always wanted. With a changed job market, now is the time for new beginnings!
Other resolutions you can try to adopt is keeping a journal. For example, I personally decided to write down recipes that I love and will go to often. It’s much easier than using a smart device and having multiple cook books. You can also try managing your items better. Go through all your stuff as if you’re about to move and chunk out anything that you can’t connect with anymore. On that note, when purchasing items, ask yourself if you really need it. We don’t realize how wasteful we are with money until we realize that $40 shirt was only worn once and now it’s just taking up space. Be more realistic with your items!
Also as we proceed into 2021, we would like to acknowledge and remember the hardships of last year. 2020 taught us many lessons- the importance of financial security and companionship. 2020 also taught us not to take anything for granted- life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness were all challenged. Now, we will take it back and live the way we were meant to.
