The turn of a new year is always met with an on-set of prompts and questions about one’s new year’s resolutions. While some goals are notoriously made to be broken, (such as that resolution to get in the gym everyday) there is something so special about creating goals for yourself to take on in the new year. Rather than honing in on your individual goals, here are some simple, everyday habits to implement into your routine that will help bring some transformation and change to your new year: 

The first and obvious step is to plan out your goals for the New Year through brainstorming and refining. Check out our 2019 New Year’s blog post about some Go-To Tips for Getting S#@t Done!

Make. Your. Bed.

Sounds simple enough right? But how many of us simply forget or chose to bypass this step every morning? While the task might seem rather insignificant, the act of making one’s bed when getting up is proven to increase productivity and a feeling of accomplishment. Plus, it adds an additional neatness to any room, helping it to feel less cluttered and therefore promoting clarity of thought for the day. Don’t believe the hype? Check out this book titled “Make Your Bed: Little Things that can change your Life… And Maybe the World” to hear more about the significance of this task. 

Slow Down

While trying to implement change and accomplishing goals can sometimes make us feel like there is no time to waste, there is actually a great benefit in slowing down. Whenever it is most convenient for your schedule, designate a time to pause everything for meditation and grounding. This healing practice can be as short as 2 minutes. Slowing down each day to meditate has proven to strengthen one’s mental health, focus, and reduce stress. 

Avoid the Devices

This tip might be the most difficult of them all, but also one of the most valuable. I can speak for myself and say that when it comes to the morning, I oftentimes reach for my phone before I can even have my first thought of the day. It is a daily struggle to remind myself that the notifications on my phone are not as important as what is happening in my own personal life. While it is not the most realistic for us to avoid devices for a majority of the day, try implementing a no-phone zone for the first 30 minutes to an hour of the morning. Our world is run by technology, we can say no to using it for the sacred beginnings of our day.
