“New Year, New Me!” We hear it everywhere this time of year, but how do you really make the best of the new year? Here are 5 ways to move Full Steam Ahead through 2021!
Take Care of Yourself
In the hustle and bustle of life we often forget to take care of ourselves mentally and physically. Self care can be as simple as reading a book you enjoy or going on a walk. Life is full of ups and downs but taking care of yourself can be a great way to take a break. So find what works best for you to be your best self!
Find a Project or a Year Long Goal
Do you have something you have always wanted to do but never feel like you have the time? Make it a year long goal! Whether it is running a 5k or making a scrapbook, finding one small thing you enjoy to tie your year together can make you feel more motivated and satisfied at the end of the year.
Cherish Every Moment
If 2020 has taught us anything it is to not take our lives for granted. The dark moments in life often try to consume us but we need to push through it. There are moments to cherish every day. It could be as small as family dinner or as big as getting a promotion. 2020 showed us how much the little things matter and we need to use that newfound knowledge to make the most of 2021.
Document Your Year
2020 was a crazy year, but it flew by faster than any of us expected. Don’t let this year fly by too, document it! Writing down or documenting your life could also serve as a stress reliever in these insane times. It could be through journaling, or scrapbooking, or just taking a picture a day. At the end of the year and for many years to come, you can look back on 2021 and remember how it went.
Find Joy and Gratitude in Everyday Things
The chaotic energy in our lives can often consume us and push us down, but there are so many little things in life to be grateful for. Little or big things we often overlook bring us joy every day without us even knowing it. So take a second each day and take in everything around you and be thankful for the good even in the midst of dark times.
We have persevered through so much in 2020 and we are going into this year looking for a fresh start. We have learned so much in a year’s time and we can use it to move Full Steam Ahead through the new year!
