We’re beginning another year in a bit! 👋🏻 Since I know I can’t keep up with resolutions 🙈, I jotted down 5 simple things you should do more this new year.
We can all cut the new year, new me crap and really do something about it. Consider this simple list as a kickstart to a more meaningful year ahead.
5 Simple Things You Should Do More #1: Be grateful
No matter how big or small, learn to count your blessings. In this neverending pursuit of wanting the latest, the newest, the trendiest whatever thing, we sometimes forget and take for granted what we already have. Also remember to always say “thank you” to people and appreciate the value they bring to your life. You never know how those simple two words can brighten up someone’s day.
5 Simple Things You Should Do More #2: Forgive and ask for forgiveness
Life’s too short to harbor ill feelings. Be humble enough to acknowledge you made a mistake and say sorry for it.
5 Simple Things You Should Do More #3: Take time outs
Hit the pause button quick, especially in this fast-paced digital world. Ever been in that situation where you’re all gathered together, but everyone is busy on their phones? #guilty 🙈 (While you’re on your phone, share this 5 simple things you should do more article with your friends!). So on this brand new year, aim to disconnect more to connect with real people, real people right in front of you. Spark real conversation, really listen to what they’re saying. You’ll never know what great ideas you can pick up unless you hear them out.
5 Simple Things You Should Do More #4: Stop comparing
If you continuously compete with others, you become bitter. But if you continuously challenge yourself, you become better. 👊🏻 I used to be that person who checks others’ IG and feel miserable about my life. But thank goodness I quickly snapped out of that and told myself that nobody’s perfect; everyone is just putting their best lives forward and only sharing the good stuff. Life will be so much easier after you realize that bit. 🍃 Focus on yourself instead.
5 Simple Things You Should Do More #5: Start somewhere, start with baby steps
I’ve always said I’ll start my passion projects and hobbies again, but then random shit happened and they all took the backseat once again. So this 2019, I will do more of the #littlethingsthatmakemehappy — one small step at a time like restarting my blog with one or two posts a month, reading at least one book per quarter (every month if time permits) and cooking more healthy goodness!
Whew! That was looong! Hope you enjoyed reading this article about 5 simple things you should do more this 2019. How about you? 😉 What are your new year’s resolutions or personal goals you want to start or keep doing this coming new year? Comment away and happy 2019 everyone! 💕
