Here I am in 2019 ready to move forward - In with the new and out with the old. But is it that simple?
If you are feeling stuck at the start of this year it may be difficult to think of something new to introduce and old to discard. You may be struggling to commit to something for a year and feel burdened by the thought, even before you begin.
Surely we don't need to pressurise ourselves into making resolutions just because it's the beginning of the year. Maybe we just need to consider how we can move forward in a continuing and positive direction along the path towards a more fulfilling life.
Instead of setting New Year's intentions that are impossible to keep, how about focusing on making smaller changes to your daily habits that can simply be added into your routine one step at a time - introducing realistic changes that can be intergated into your daily life may have a greater impact on your overall health, wellbeing and happiness.
Since life is a balancing act that sometimes doesn't suit us on a daily basis. My approach for this year is to concentrate on creating some new habits that I can easily adopt to bring more happiness into my life. I have selected eight helpful habits that you may want to introduce too!
Introduce more quality time by spending it with people you really care about. Taking time for yourself to let go, have fun and enjoy what’s happening around you. Being in the moment brings us back to our inner self and gives us a sense of really living life to the full, in the here and now, where we actually see, notice, smell, hear and taste what is immediately in front of us.
Stop being judgmental - keep an open mind around people, events, places and experiences. When you judge others based on your own perceptions you limit yourself the chance to really get to know and understand who they are. Being less closed and more open to receiving without judgment gives us a true sense of who we really are - interested, caring and kind.
