Be happy, be positive, be motivated even when things are not going your way. It's not always easy, so let's unpack the year as it comes to an end.
Did You Set New Year's Resolutions?
Resolutions come in all forms. Some people set goals such as quitting a bad habit like smoking or changing their diet. Some goal-getters commit to even larger goals to improve their lives in the coming year. As the year comes to an end, it provides the perfect time to reflect on what worked, what didn't work, and why. Do not beat yourself up if something doesn't work. Rather, find a strategy to refocus and achieve next year.
How To Refocus and Achieve Your Goals
Below are some examples of habits adopted by highly successful people in two categories: time and energy.
Establishing a routine helps you have a structured day and not find yourself overwhelmed by your never-ending to-do list. Utilizing the Eisenhower Matrix assists you in deciding what needs to be prioritized and stick it.
Eliminate clutter that can distract your productivity in the day. Before starting your day, remove anything that can cause interruptions and distract you from reaching your daily goals. For example, if you are working from home, ensure the laundry is not in your working area. Time block your day into small increments (e.g., 15-minute slots) to complete activities.
To keep your fitness levels up, daily exercise in the newly renovated fitness center will do you a world of good. There's undisputed scientific evidence proving that being physically active helps you lead a healthier and happier life.
Meditation or mindfulness exercises such as hiking the Denton Katy Rail Trail will keep you motivated. There's a huge release of energy to completing a full hike and getting much-needed sun and fresh air.
Avoid low-impact decision-making — if something doesn't make a difference to your life, don't spend time and energy on it. Do at least one activity a day that takes you out of your comfort zone; it may be something small like singing aloud, which builds emotional athleticism.
Daily Motivation Requires a Commitment to Your Goals
No magical numbers can miraculously change a person's life. At the crux of it, you have to be honest with yourself regarding your capabilities, time, and commitment. Be easy on yourself — Rome was not built in a day, and you get to live another year to commit to reaching and exceeding your goals.
