New Year is around the corner and it is officially the last few days of year 2021. As the festive vibe surrounds us all, it is also the time to reflect. This is the best time we take notes of how we excelled through the year, what could have possibly gone better for us, and how this air can be a great start to take over the new year; and kick off a fantastic 2022.
As an after-effect of the pandemic that we have all been through, the world has started to rethink life in terms of work, society, wellness and community and leadership. This brings us to an amazing opportunity to reach new levels of aspirations as we take insights from the year. Prioritizing health and happiness has been more important than ever now. While we had our own varied experiences through the pandemic and through this year, the world collectively moves to seek better health solutions and create agile and aware citizens who understand the value of wellness in true terms.
As we list down our personal resolutions for 2022, it is time to prioritize health and happiness- to create a separate little space where you look after yourself, find work-life balance, seek fulfillment and satisfaction and start romanticizing life that is around you.
Declutter your space- This is the best practice that works miracles! Decluttering could mean anything you do to create more space in your life so that nothing stands in your way. Tidying up your immediate surrounding could give you a better mindset almost instantly. Decluttering could also work for your social and personal life, where you start prioritizing the people that share your vibe, let go of things, people and situations that bring you negativity. Work on your thoughts and identify the ones that are useful to your growth.
Customize your wellness journey- After some delicious and fat-festive meals, it is quite common that a lot of people make it to the gym in the beginning of the year, and gyms see the highest crowd only through the first weeks of January. After those days however, the initial excitement of getting a summer body slowly starts to fade and most of us go out of track, unable to keep up with those ridiculously vigorous exercise regimes we made resolutions about. Health Experts say that the best way to incorporate steps of healthy living is for one to find a routine that suits their existing life. You need to introduce healthy practices in your life progressively, but start by making a comfortable regime that you can stay consistent with.
Establish Routine- John C Maxwell quotes, “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine.” Whatever goals you have for the year, be it learning, becoming stronger, better or more successful, it all starts with introducing the changes that your current routine lacks. Routines are huge parts of our every-days. And so, for example, if you want to make more peace in your life, giving 15 minutes a day to meditate and calm your body could reap great results in the longer run. When you plan things for yourself and stay consistent, it brings a great sense of control over life.
These three ideas can be great initial work to take up this December as we begin to foresee the coming year on the horizon to be filled with health, happiness and new spirits.
