New Year’s eve is just days away, so, how can you REALLY make 2015 YOUR year? How can you make this year different from all others? How can you make it a successful one? Well I don’t have all of the answers, but I do have a few helpful tips to get you started. Below you will find some helpful tips on how to make 2015 YOUR year, one that is full of purpose and promise. Here is how you can get started!
1. Make it purposeful.
Before setting a zillion resolutions, decide to resolve with purpose. Cut out the fluff and focus on purposeful actions…ones that make a difference to your life and the lives of those around you. Examples could be volunteering more, learning a new skill, or spending times bonding with others. When you live with purpose, life suddenly feels more rewarding.
2. Live without fear.
Now is the time to live without fear. That cooking class you were thinking about taking? Sign up! That friend you have wanted to apologize to? Do it! That paint color you wanted to try or hair cut you have been thinking about it? Now is the time! Live without fear and make 2015 the year you come to life.
3. Try one new thing a week.
Each week, try something new. It doesn’t have to be anything major, you can always start small. Try a new food, a new restaurant, a new lipstick color, etc. Then, work your way up to bigger steps. Try learning a new language, a new skill, or even a new place to visit.
4. Take time for yourself each day.
Devote one hour a day to just yourself and making yourself healthy. Drink water, sip healthy tea, have a healthy snack, do yoga, write, or just chat with a friend. Devote this time to yourself and see how it makes you feel, and thrive!
5. Forgive YOURSELF.
I have a secret to tell you…we all make mistakes! This is the year you get back on the horse and forgive yourself. You will never find people to be kind to you if you can’t be kind to yourself.
Happy New Year, friends!
