Welcome to the New Year! This means a new you, right? I know many have New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, stay fit, or be healthy. How about we start off the New Year on a good foot? One thing I read recently said to make it GOALS instead of a resolution. A goal is something we can work towards that will not necessarily “resolve” by the end of the year.
According the American Psychological Association (APA), many people have a laundry list of goals they want to accomplish by the end of the year, but remember to take it one-step at a time. Here are some quick tips by APA to help accomplish your goals.
Take a moment to reflect on what your new year’s resolution was last year and how you did with it throughout the year. Reflect on what worked for you and what didn’t work for you. Use that and the above advice from the APA to help set new goals this year. We can all work together to achieve our goals this year!
In the next post, I will give some specific exercises to help kick start the year!
