It’s New Year’s Eve!
What are your goals for the New Year?
This is the time of year when we all sit down to write down our goals for the New Year. Then we scurry off to buy a weekly planner and start planning our healthy weekly routine, whether to improve our time management and being more effective with our time and jam even more things to do in a day or to better our lifestyle habits in an attempt to eat better and exercise more.
Do you stick to your goals?
Are your goals attainable?
Are your goals too attainable?
Are you the type of person that has one big goal and break it down to micro goals to reach that one big goal one step at a time or are you more of a type that has categorized goals, (personal growth, family, work, social life, health and wellness, etc.).
I like to be challenged BUT, I am also anxious by nature, and challenges can intimidate me so I take the categorized goals and sprinkle little personal challenges here and there. These are all attainable challenges though, (like running my first half marathon), because I know that when I really want something, I go for it, and put a lot of hard work into it!
However, I’ve never really set for myself a big “pie in the sky” goal. I have always been too much of a cautious, rational gal.
Enough about me!
The reality is, we all have New Year’s goals and resolutions.
The majority of us go for more exercise, better eating habits, better time management, reduce stress, saving money, enjoy life to the fullest, spend more time with family and friends, sleep more and better, stop smoking, drink less and reduce screen time.
This is all making sense, however, have you ever thought that being in the right environment can make achieving all these goals so much easier?
You have to have and be in the right space to be in the right frame of mind to achieve your goals!
For example, can you reduce stress spending your day in a cluttered, busy office and, at the end of a work day, go to a home that is not inviting or calm-inducing?
By simply improving your surroundings you can support your goals of reducing stress, which in turn can help you quit smoking, drink less, sleep more, and even invite people over to your place which helps you meet your goals of spending more time with family and friends!
