New Years Eve/New Years Day- A Time to Reflect

New Years Eve/New Years Day- Time to Reflect



New Years Eve/New Years Day is a time for reflection.
Reflect on yourself. How can you change to be a better person next year? What
can you do differently next year? What opportunities/obstacles led you to where
you are today? What are you doing to make healthy changes in your life?
(Physically & Mentally).  It is not
the time to make unrealistic goals that don’t happen because they are set to
high that you just give up anyway.  For
example, losing weight is a common resolution, but how about just eating
healthier. Then don’t focus so much on the weight, just focus on being
healthier. Sure we all have things we don’t like about ourselves, but it is
also healthy to accept what we have and be “okay” with it. That’s where the
mental changes take place. That goes for everything in life. Focus on the
things that you have. Wanting “more” is normal, but it won’t always make you
happier. Sometimes “accepting” what you presently have is all you need. As we
grow older, we learn to accept more and demand less. Our values and morals are
constantly evolving. Don’t lose sight of the most important things in life. It’s
not the materials in life that make you a better person. It’s not about having
the latest gadget. Instant gratification is great, but it is short lived. How
about volunteering your time to help someone in need? Time can mean so much to
someone if that is all you can give. Re-focus, Re-invent, and Re-evaluate
yourself in the New Year. What realistic goals can you set for yourself that
are achievable in your mind and not someone else’s? Or what can you accept
about yourself that you couldn’t accept before and actually be happy about it?
Maybe change the “inner” you. Focus on the small things. The most important
thing in life is your health. (physically and mentally). Too many of us take
that for granted. Have a Healthy and Happy New Year. Re-invent the new you in
2013!
