Rather than setting another New Years resolution this year that I will break because of a lame excuse, I decided to keep it simple and lay a foundation for the other goals I’d want to accomplish. So what’s my New Years resolution?
Going to bed at 11 pm and waking up at 7 am.
I have allowed myself to accept the fact that some nights I might go to bed later and some mornings I will wake up sooner or later. It is the extra time I will gain by doing this that will allow me to get more done with the 24 hours I am given every day. I have tools to help me stay awake: Alarm Clock, Coffee, Meditation, and a toddler and tools to help me get some sleep : Gym, Herbal teas, Meditation, music.
Day one of the New Year and it’s going well with the help of my hubby and a nice cup of bulletproof coffee and all my morning supplements I’m ready to take on the day!!
Tips for setting goals that are easy to follow:
1. Set a goal that starts the foundation for your success.
If your looking to get healthy or feel better this year, rather than setting a goal for the gym, try and set a goal to eat healthier. This is the equivalent to trying to build a pyramid from the top to the bottom. Laying a good foundation is key and the food your putting in your body is your fuel. By enhancing the quality of food and eating the right foods you will feel better both mentally and physically and this will help lead you to the weight loss you desire and leave you feeling better every day.
2. Be positive and make sure your thoughts reflect your wants.
Instead of saying your “not a morning person” tell yourself ” I start every day full of energy and positivity ” the voice inside your head is the most powerful influence in your life. The man who says he can and the man who says he can’t are both right. For me, it helps when I say the positive things out loud. Although I may look a bit strange if I did this in front of a crowd, something about hearing it resonates with me more than just saying it in my head. The law of attraction is a very powerful tool, use it wisely.
3. Ask the universe for what you want and be open to how it happens.
The universe listens to everything you request, both good and bad. If you end up getting hung up on how your goal manifests, it could pass right in front of you and you would ignore it because it wasn’t how you planned it in your head. Be present and don’t focus so much on the details but rather the journey. The experiences you learn from and people you meet along the way to your end goal are the real treasures.
