Whether you’ve set resolutions, are taking stock of your goals, or are just trying to resettle after vacations and holidays, stabilizing into new rhythms or forgotten routines can be challenging.
The hectic holidays, vacation freedom, and winter blues can all throw you off balance, even if you’re eager to get on the right track. We’ve compiled some tips to make resettling a little easier, so you can create a healthy, successful year.
- Block out some time. Whatever it is you’re working towards, it is helpful to have scheduled blocks of time. Especially when starting something new, it can be easy to procrastinate or push things off because “other stuff” comes up. Regularly setting aside time to focus on your goals will help you establish a routine and ensure that you prioritize your goals and yourself.
- Create an outline. Teachers create outlines to clarify what to expect, what needs to be done, and how things will be measured. These same concepts can be applied to your personal life. Determine what your goal is and then outline the details. When will you do it? What will it take to get there? How will you measure your success? A clear understanding of what you’re working towards makes it easier to take the steps needed to get there.
