APARTMENT LIVING,SPECIAL OCCASIONS
As you cash in another year of life, the mind often wonders if there was more we could have done in the year prior. Were there habits we could have changed, or new ones we could have acquired to make life a little more fulfilling? The answer for most of us is, yes. Wether your goal is to become more organized or move into a new apartment nearby, it is never too late to create a new goal. If you’re looking for inspiration on ways to turn this into a successful year for your career or your personal life, read on.
THREE ESSENTIAL HABITS TO ADOPT FOR A SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR
Do something for yourself everyday.
Make it a habit to schedule some “me time” every single day in the New Year — yes, every single day. Whether it is a 5-minute meditation session to set you up for the day or a leisurely 15-minute walk in the park, start investing in yourself. Even if you have a home to run, mouths to feed or a huge corporation to helm, taking a little time out of a 24-hour day is not too much to ask. In the long run, it is likely to make you more successful at what you do because you’ll be happier and therefore motivated.
Get up and move.
Possibly the most common New Year’s resolution of all, making physical activity a priority is important. Yet, not many of these resolutions translate into habits. So how do you make your attempts at exercise successful? Pick something you enjoy doing, and then get a friend on board. It’s easier to stay motivated if you have someone to hold you accountable. Also, it can sometimes just be as simple as taking a 20-minute walk around your neighborhood every morning or opting to take the stairs.
Read a new book.
They say that if you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room. As human beings, we always have room to learn and grow. Whether you’re interested in becoming more mindful, spiritual, motivated or simply informed, make reading books a habit. Finding something that has always interested you that you never quite got around to getting accustomed with is a great way to continue your own personal education. You could end up changing your entire way of life for the better.
