Late to the New Year’s Resolution Party?
Getting a late start on your New Year’s resolutions and now it’s February? Well lucky you. Join the party! February is the new January. So jump on, late “New Year New You” starters.
If hopes of starting a fresh new year filled with resolutions didn’t quite work out as planned. — health or family crises may have taken over, over-commitments didn’t allow it, poor time management took over — c’est la vie. Let’s get going #RightNow.
Here are three actions to get you February-motivated, to step aboard and get unstuck. Who says January 1 is the magic start date? “New Year New You” starts now, no matter what the calendar says!
Action #1: LOSE SOMETHING.
-Release an unhealthy habit such as smoking, over-indulging, impatience with others.
-Let go of an old routine — eating sugar-laden cereals for breakfast (try oatmeal), getting on your computer for hours every night (try talking with the family or call an old friend instead)
-Walk away from a negative, judgmental, nasty person in your world. Meanness is so last year.
-Let go of complacency and become active.
Action #2: CHANGE IT UP.
-Eat breakfast in a different chair.
-Drive the kids to school a different way.
-Get up 15 minutes earlier and read the headlines.
-Stretch before bed.
-Walk for 20 minutes in the morning.
-Have something to look forward to: spring, a vacation, a new job.
-Pray upon waking.
-Start a craft, an adventure, join a club. Start a new “thing.”
Action #3: BE THE FORCE THAT CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING.
-Smile at a stranger.
-Lead by example; people are watching, what are they learning?
-Don’t wait for someone else to tell you it’s “go” time. Take action.
-Trust your intuition.
-Speak positive words about yourself to others.
-Stop gossiping and start complimenting.
