You’ve made it through 2020 (phew) and if you feel arriving in 2021 has this euphoric sense of hope about it, you’d be right. Even if it takes a little Taylor Swift mojo to “shake it off” to the hangover 2020 left, it’s time to get your sense of excitement about the New Year and we suggest you get your groove on. Because today marks the beginning of 365 days of opportunities ahead, so, let’s talk a little about how you can get the most from them.
LOVE. Let those close to you know how much you value having them in your life. Whether to do this, you must visit, call, zoom or text your appreciation and love for them being in your life, the important thing here is that you tell them. Because if we learnt any lessons from 2020 it’s that being alone is hard and life is full of surprises.
LAUGH. Like really laugh! Belly laughs are thought to improve oxygen intake and stimulate the heart, lungs and muscles. And that’s not all; you also get a rush of endorphins that can help to stimulate circulation, ease pains and decrease the body’s response to stress.
THINK FULFILMENT. A positive mindset not only helps people to lead more satisfying, fuller lives, it determines how satisfied you will be with your achievements. So, no matter how small the win, take a moment to celebrate it. Whether it’s making it to the gym a bit more each week, weeding the garden or finally getting your pantry organised – they are all little victories you should pat yourself on the back for. Good job, you!
FUEL YOUR HEALTH WITH FACTS. New Year’s resolutions are as set in the calendar as the celebrations for the earth’s lap around the sun, with companies globally cashing in on the hopes and desires of individuals to achieve a healthier, more active, financially free or successful life in the new year. But if you calm all the hype and close down your Instagram feed while you think, we’re sure you’ll agree that when it comes to your health, the first place you should start is with the facts. What is your blood pressure? Have you had your cholesterol checked? Have you had your skin assessed? When was your last mammogram, pap smear or Men’s Health check? Because knowledge is power, and unless you know for sure that what you’ve been doing has or hasn’t been working for you. You can’t very well determine the RIGHT way to move forward to achieve the healthiest you.
