We’re getting right into 2020, which means that there’s a chance you already stalled on your New Year’s resolution. While resolutions can seem pointless to some, they’re actually a great way to get motivated. And, they don’t have to start on January 1st.
Sure, that may defeat the purpose of a promise for a “new year,” but the goal of a resolution is to better yourself in some way. Putting a bunch of pressure on yourself on a certain day is just setting yourself up to fail. Instead, gradually working towards a goal means there’s a much better chance that it’ll stick, and become a complete lifestyle change.
That said, if your goal is to lose weight, you should stop right there. Yes, it’s important to be healthy — but focusing more on the weight aspect and less on the activity aspect will make you unhappy in the long run. It’s better to focus on your mental health, and not beat yourself up for enjoying a donut during a coworker’s birthday celebration. You’re not a failure for having a cheat day turn into a cheat weekend (or, a cheat week.) If you go back to your goal — with any resolution — you’ll be successful.
This year, your resolution should focus entirely on ways to make yourself happier. You deserve to put a little focus on yourself and your own well-being. Here are five great resolutions to make your 2020 as bright and positive as it can be.
