We have all heard, and probably said, the cliché statement, “New year, new me.” New Year’s Day rolls around every year and people begin to look back over the year and see what they have accomplished, or not, and begin to think of ways in which they can do better in the new year. With social media, people tend to bombard our timelines with their New Year’s resolutions and while we tend to get sick of this very fast, there actually is merit in creating new goals for the year ahead. Here are some tips for refocusing and rejuvenating your goals in the upcoming year:
Look back at the year that has passed and think of what you have accomplished and what you would still like to accomplish. It is always great to set goals for yourself and looking back to see which goals you have hit and which you would still like to hit is a great way to gain fresh motivation moving forward. Maybe some goals you set for yourself are no longer important or even relevant to where you are now in life. Reassess what you want and where you want to be in your future and structure your new goals around this.
One important thing that I think about as the year comes to an end is what made me happy throughout the year and how I can make more time for that in the new year. Too often we get swept up in our professional lives that we neglect our personal lives. Set some new personal goals for yourself and restructure your schedule to take more time for the things that warm your heart and put a smile on your face. Maybe its reading more, traveling to new places, or simply making more time for your loved ones.
While it may be cliché and tired to post all of your new year’s resolutions on social media, making new goals for yourself and refreshing old ones is a phenomenal way to reset yourself going into this new time period. Constantly assessing where we are in life is essential to determining where we would like to be and can ultimately get us to a much better place. Keep dreaming and achieving my loves!
