I love the feeling of a crisp new year. The hope, the promise, the potential, aaaaalllll the possibilities!
For me a new year is like a fresh sheet of paper in the book of your life. Anything can happen. Everything is possible.
That being said, even though anything could happen and everything IS possible, some things are more likely than others.
There has been lots of research around the power of writing things down and how just the act of writing makes it exponentially more likely that your goals will be achieved.
What I find however is that sometimes we either make our goals too big or too small. Too big and they seem impossible. Too small and we lose motivation to actually make them happen.
What I need for myself are goals that feel doable. And sometimes I even re-name them and call them milestones because even the WORD goals feels like too much.
I am always in favor of whatever works and of experimenting until you find your sweet spot.
When I thought about all my dreams and milestones that I want to experience next year, it started feeling a little overwhelming, so I life coached all over myself and came up with something simple instead.
Here are 4 New Years Resolutions That You Can Actually Do (WITH A FREE PRINTABLE SO YOU WRITE THEM DOWN!)
- Stop doing One Thing that you don’t enjoy and does not bring you closer to who you want to become.
- Start doing One Thing that makes your heart sing every time you think about it.
- Choose a word to guide your year. Courage. Trust. Connect. Embody. Those are some of the words I have chosen over the last few years that have shaped who I am and who I am becoming.
- Think about how you want to feel every day and identify one feeling for the main areas of your life.
Then think about what actions you can take to connect with that feeling very day.
- Family & Friends
- Personal/Spiritual Growth
- Physical Environment
