New Year, New Beginnings...
Updated: Jan 14
2022 is here and all I can think about is how it marks six full years of being an entrepreneur. Six full years of successes, setbacks, great decisions, mistakes and continuous learning and growth. I have to remind myself at times that where I am today is so far beyond what I was six years ago.
I love the new year, it feels like a fresh start with endless possibilities. Even though New Year’s resolutions can be cliché, they really do help motivate me to set new goals. I have gathered some great tips on how to set healthy habits that I want to share:
Start small: Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting a goal you are not prepared for. For example, might not be a great goal to run a marathon, if you never go on runs. Start with a one mile run every day of the week and increase your endurance from there.
Be precise: Don’t simply just say I’ll start eating healthier. Think about how. Like, I will cook at home Monday-Friday instead of ordering take-out. Or, I will prepare all my lunches from home instead of eating out. Or I will stay away from sugar Mon-Friday. With precision and consistency goals become tangible.
Stay Consistent: They say it takes at least 30 days for something to become a habit, so don’t drop the ball after a couple of weeks. The longer you practice these healthy habits they will become a routine!
This holiday season was quiet & low key. It’s been so nice to recharge, rest & reset. I feel a lot more energized & excited for 2022!
I have so many thoughts & plans for what’s to come in 2022, including my yet to be named Podcast! If you have any suggestions on names, drop them below!
One Thing I’ll Leave Behind In 2021: Wasted Energy. It’s okay to only focus on the people and tasks that give energy and life back to you and that which makes you happy.
On Thing I'll Continue To Do In 2022 and Beyond: Feel the sun on my face and spend more time outside. It sounds so basic, but for me, I've been a literal hermit. I think a major reason why my sleep hygiene is so out of whack is that I'm not getting enough natural sunlight & therefor my circadian rhythm is off. One of the most powerful ways to de-stress is to spend time outdoors. Holiday eating, drinking, and socializing can be hard on your overall well-being, so give yourself a break with the restorative effects of nature.
I’m so thankful for each & every one of you reading this who have supported me & follow along! I can’t wait to see what 2022 brings & how much more growth & opportunity is in the new year!
