How to Support... Yourself!
Whether you’re working on being more comfortable with yourself, or honing in on a goal or two to accomplish in 2015 (or both!), don’t forget about caring for yourself. It’s all too easy to run yourself ragged, so to reach the place you want to be in your life, treat yourself right.
All About You
Make sure you get enough sleep. Aim for at least 7 hours each night, and that includes before the alarm goes off if you’re a chronic snooze-hitter. It’s amazing how much more focused and energized you can be with the right amount of sleep.
Set aside time daily or weekly to focus on your goal. Even if it’s just five minutes each day, and then building on that, you need to start somewhere!
Set aside time to review your goals on a monthly basis. Take yourself out for coffee, or leave an evening free of your to-do list. Actually, do that whether or not you have a goal for 2015.
Practice other healthy habits such as drinking lots of water every day, eating nutritious snacks, and getting outside for a few minutes.
Make time to invest in yourself, doing whatever it is you most enjoy. Those moments will help revitalize you and keep you committed.
Change is hard. But you are awesome, and you can do it. These healthy habits will help get you there, and even if you don’t have a specific goal in mind, they can improve your everyday life.
