We’re officially three days into 2017, and if you haven’t come up with your resolution for the new year might I suggest cutting back on procrastination.
Whether you like it or not, the new year is upon us. While you’re by no means required to have a resolution, it’s a good way to get the bad taste of 2016 out of your mouth.
If you’re just not feeling particularly inspired this time of year, here are a few suggestions to get you started.
- Travel — Last year may have you convinced that people just can’t get along. Nothing cures that feeling like actually getting out there and experiencing more of the world. I assure you, we all have more in common then you might think.
- Be More Positive — This one is a little bit easier on your new year budget. There’s a lot to be negative about in the world, so make a point to try and see the positive in every situation, even if it’s just something silly.
- Focus on Experiences — We live in a material world, and while things like fancy smart phones and tablets have their place and purpose, experiences usually have a more positive impact on our lives as a whole. Try and do something new this year, whether it’s volunteering more or going on that dream trip.
- Read More — And I’m not talking about more screen time. I mean pick up a book. There’s a lot of distractions in this age of technology, but we could all benefit from some quality, unplugged time away all our smart gadgets.
Sorry, that’s all I’ve got for you. Hopefully you’re feeling inspired to brush off last year, start fresh and enjoy this bright, shiny new year.
…just for fun:
