New Year, New You?

Every year, we all hear about setting New Year Resolutions to make our lives or the lives of those around us better. It’s funny because even if we aren’t inclined to make resolutions, we all look at this time of year as a new start.

Because of this, I have a few thoughts about what we can do to make this year better, even if it isn’t goals we set in stone (I for one rarely set big new goals in January, instead I set very little achievable ones like read 10 minutes a day).

My thoughts come mostly from what I have noticed personally this year that have made an impact:

  1. Attitude is everything. I spent a lot of 2018 in doctor’s offices. I have seen lots of different attitudes, and I have noticed the people who are happy and optimistic seem to handle their health challenges better. My personal feeling is, if I am going to go out, I would rather do it happy! Have you noticed that positive people are better workers, employers, friends and neighbors? It is a choice we all can make!
  2. Exercise. There is this guy who was on hospice but would wake up every day and lift weights and work out. The nurses were telling him he didn’t have to do that anymore and why was he bothering. Despite it all he kept it up and is now off hospice and is strong and healthy. The link between exercise and our health is so important and we owe it to ourselves to exercise every day. It may just save our lives!
  3. Learning. I don’t know about you but some of my happiest times are when I am learning something new. I especially love it when the information I am gathering is going to help my clients – you! I can’t wait to come home and share it. Learning renews us, makes us young in our heads again and makes us more valuable to employers and employees. Learning should always be on the table!

You may choose to see this list and think of some incremental change you can make, or not. As long as we are growing and improving, it doesn’t really matter when we do it!

All the Best!
