My 2020 Resoultions
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
Nothing is more important than self care. As another year has begun, I find myself spending time reflecting on my goals from the previous year, how I have grown and lessons learned. With 2020 upon us, I also find myself hungry for success and more focused on what I want out of this next year. This led me to create resolutions that will cultivate my personal and professional success and ultimately, protect my peace.
I write a lot for the blog, clients and other miscellaneous projects but I have strayed away from personal journaling. Each week, I want to set aside time to meditate, journal and reflect. I have found that this helps me track my personal growth and it's always interesting to look back and see what things I have written about that, thankfully, have and have not come to fruition. If you want to start journaling, here are a few great journals with prompts to get started: A 52 Week Guide To Cultivate An Attitude Of Gratitude, Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice, and Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration.
2. Read one book a week
I have found with Reality TV, Social Media, and all of the other mindless distractions of the world, I have stopped reading books. Over the last six months, I thought about ways to challenge my mind and found that reading would be the perfect fit. This month I plan on reading The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn, Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple and Chelsea Handler's Life will be the Death of Me. I am still looking for the 4th book, feel free to send suggestions by commenting below or shooting an email!
3. Blog more
Look forward to me bringing you more quality content all year long! We plan on sharing travel/hotel reviews, restaurant recommendations, events and so much more. Stay tuned and make sure you have subscribed to get our latests posts delivered to your inbox.
4. Be more vulnerable with myself and others
Throughout life, we all become jaded to different degrees by experiences and situations that have brought on hurt. Sometimes these experiences chip away at the core of who we are or make us insecure about our best qualities. It's our job to heal from that hurt and in doing so, I have challenged myself to get to know myself on a deeper level and share that version of myself with more people.
5. Continue to put both my physical and mental health first
We live in a society that encourages a "burnout, rest and recovery" behavior pattern. So often we taken on more than we can emotionally handle - working long hours, running never ending errands and overcommitting to our social schedules. Our mental and physical wellness should be our top priority. By continuing to put my health first, I know that I am cultivating the best version of myself allowing me to "keep my cup full". Whether it be working out, going to therapy or practicing meditation and balance, be sure to make time for yourself this year and make your wellness a priority.
