Hello Roomies! This blog will focus just a little bit the month of January and the so called New Year Resolutions that come with it.
January is that time of the year when people tend to take some time out to reflect on the year ahead and to think on what the future may have in store for them. I’m guessing you’ve also thought had the time to think about some great Bingo prizes for this New Year 🙂
A New Year marks a fresh start and one thing which always noticeable among people is the increasing number of people who are continuously looking for a new challenge or even a change of direction in their lives. My question however is; why do we need New Year Resolutions in order to create good habits or trying to change our way of life positively? Why not change the way we look at resolutions?
I took the time to bring this up because I see so many people wearing down on what the New Year will bring and how to be a better person. The truth is that we shouldn’t change the way we work from year to year just because the calendar changes. Feel free to disagree roomies! For example when making a resolution, why not take the time to write them down into monthly goals? If you goal is to lose weight, what is your final number?What are your monthly and weekly goals? That sort of thing.
This is not to be negative in any sort of way and not care for the joyful season of looking to the future as I am sure you as part of the Bingo community, fun is what we usually go for 🙂 No. What I’m saying here is that we need to keep an eye on the reasons why we decide to proceed with such goals and resolutions. Here’s how to breakdown your resolutions:
Simple Goals – Start with the simplest goals. If you’re not a fitness freak, start by making January a month goal of exercising regularly at least twice a week and reduce bad food. Minimal things can be achieved and can be a platform to build on.
Put the unnecessary stuff aside – You want to be better? Only keep the good things by your side. The rest? Not needed. Start the New Year with a list of the good things you have in life, and also the bad ones. Build on the goods, and remove the bad ones.
Be Realistic – This is a problem a lot of people tend to make when it comes to setting goals. Most goals tend be to extremely hard to attain and sometimes even out of reach. So start with something small and see which things can make you happier.
Remember one thing my dear bingo friends. If you want to make a New Year Resolution this year, in the next few years or whenever, write it out. Write your goals; monthly and weekly. Get a move on and act on it :).
