It feels like 2022 was a blink of an eye. It came and went, just like that. It’s so easy with the passing years for it to feel like we are on a hamster wheel getting nowhere, but in the meantime we stop and see so much has changed also. In this blog post, we’re here to give 3 new ideas to incorporate in 2023 that we think will truly help you slow down and cherish the moments that pass by so quickly. Let’s say Cheers to new Beginnings together!
Write it Down.
You may not be into writing in a journal, but give us a moment to explain. When you journal, there are 2 big benefits to consider. First, you are able to get your thoughts off your chest in a tangible way. There is something about writing your thoughts out that allow you to gather them better, be in-tune with them better, and think in a more practical way.
Second, writing in a journal also provides a means to look back and reflect on your past in a unique way. We all think we will remember everything, but as time goes on, unfortunately we may miss a learning opportunity, time of growth we experienced, or simply what day-to-day was like at this moment in time.
Wake up Early.
This one will come easy to some and be a challenge to others. However, waking up early is an excellent way to get a head-start on the day and its demands. If you feel as though there is never enough time in a day, and you feel behind the moment you wake up, waking up even an extra 30 minutes early could provide huge relief and a jumpstart into your day. Consistency is key, however when you notice the productivity and excitement you feel when you’re accomplishing your tasks, it will all be worth it.
Keep a Running List.
What do we mean by keep a running list? Well, this will look different for everyone. A running list may simply be a to-do list so you have a game-plan each day. It could also mean having a list you consistently add to for your groceries, online purchases, or your house chores. Having a running lists allows you to not forget things that come to mind at random, but also gives them a place to reside to clear your mind, and ensure it won’t be forgotten.
