Whether you partake in them or not, I think beginning the year with a few resolutions is such a healthy practice. They give us something to aim towards throughout the year and encourage us to start the year with a motivational kick.
With it being just over a week into 2014, chances are, if you’re going to put your list of goals or promises together, you already have. However, if you haven’t, here are a few from my list, which apply to everyone and that you can add to your own!
1. Begin your morning with a positive thought.
I don’t know about you all, but I am my own worst enemy when it comes to negativity. One negative thought in the morning can so easily begin a string of negativity throughout the day. This year, it’s my goal to wake up every morning with a positive thought. This will not only effect you throughout the day, more than likely resulting in a much more productive day, but everyone else will thank you for it too! Positivity is contagious!
2. Drink more water.
I cut minerals/soda out of my diet over 10 years ago (I know, I’m only 21. Haha.) so you would think that drinking water wouldn’t come as a problem to me. Not so. I drink a ridiculous amount of tea, more tea than water. After a swift but horrible week of being ill over the New Year, I’ve had my eyes opened to the importance of drinking water. Water helps energize muscles, helps keep skin looking good and helps keep your kidneys, among other things, in working order! So I’ve made it my goal to attempt to drink 6 – 8 glasses of water a day!
3. Say yes!
Over the past year, by taking the bull by its horns on some occasions and just saying yes to opportunities as they are given to me, I have been lucky enough to do some pretty amazing things! So this year, I am determined to say yes to more things. If you are presented with an opportunity and you aren’t doing anything of vital importance at that time, say YES! You never know what might come out of it! Take a chance!
What resolutions have you made for this year?
Hopefully these 3 ideas have provided you with some inspiration for your 2014 resolutions!
