It’s a new year and with it comes the chance for a new start. No one anticipated a global pandemic, having to isolate themselves or having to work from home. However, many of us had to change the way we conducted our lives. For many of us, it forced us to slow down and take a look at ourselves. Though 2020 was a hard year, it brought us together as a community and gave us the opportunity to be there for one another. We were able to discover new parts of ourselves and to learn to be grateful for all that we have. In the upcoming year, we challenge you to think about how you can have a better 2021. Below we’ve compiled a few ways to help you create a better year.

1.  Set aside time for yourself. A major lesson many of us learned last year is that we valued productivity over self-care. It’s important to make time to recharge and to take care of your well-being so that you can be the best version of yourself. Try setting aside a certain time of day or a certain amount of time each day meant only for you.

2.  Make realistic, attainable goals and start small. Have you been thinking about losing weight, waking up earlier or trying a new hobby? 2020 taught us that we have resilience and that we can get through anything. Set small tasks that you know you can accomplish and the move on to bigger goals once you’re ready.

3.  Make connections. No one can do anything alone and it’s important to have a support system. We learned last year to be grateful for the people in our lives and now is the perfect time to show those you love that you care.

4.  Exercise. We know that exercise is always at the top of the list when mentioning things to do differently in the upcoming year—and for good reason. When we take the time to engage in physical activity, we release hormones that provide a positive boost in our mood. Don’t forget to keep a water bottle handy to stay hydrated.
Whatever you chose to do this year, keep a positive mindset. Think positive and the rest will follow.
