New Year Wellbeing Intentions

I’m not a big believer in New year’s resolutions January is always a tough month. So I try and think of some New Year Wellbeing intentions.

Tell a family member or friend one thing that went well every week

So often we get hung up on the little things that go wrong from day to day, rather than focusing on everything that’s going right. Talking about something that we’ve achieved helps us remember our true potential.

Take 10 minutes every day to do something for you

It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind daily tasks. Spending 10 minutes of quality me time -reading a magazine, meditation taking a dog for a walk. Focus on activities that not only make you feel good, but also relieve stress and improve your well-being.

Cross off the toughest task on your to-do list first

Figure out the toughest, most important or most intimidating task you want to get done by the end of the day and tackle it first. That way it’s done, so it’s not hanging over your head or stressing you out the rest of the day.

Set a daily intention

It can be as simple as deciding not to overreact if your kids or another family member gets on your nerves — or take a walk over your lunch hour instead of not leaving your desk. If you feel like you’re living on auto-pilot, starting your day by setting a daily intention can help you feel more in control of your life and your actions, and over time, those intentions can each serve as a small step toward big changes.
