Tips For A Good New Year


tips-for-a-good-new-yearHappy New Year everyone! I brought the new year in on the Las Vegas strip. The weather was beautiful for the most part. It did get a little cold at night. I had a pretty good time. Now that it’s January, it’s time to get the ball rolling for the year. I have compiled a brief list of 5 tips that will help you have a good new year.

Plan Goals For The Year!

Make sure that you plan some goals for the new year. It doesn’t matter what it is. It can be anything as long as you set out and make an effort to accomplish it. If this is your first time planning goals, set out to complete at least one thing each month. Having goals will help you achieve a lot of things this upcoming year. I take the time to jot several goals in December.

Exercise And Eat Healthy!

Exercising and eating healthy is vital in making sure you have a good year. When you exercise and eat healthy, you feel and look better. When you feel better, you can get more things accomplished. I will be the first to say that I don’t always eat healthy, but I am working on it. I’m not saying that you have to go full Vegan this year, but you should watch what you are eating. Try to eat less fast food, limit or eliminate your soda intake and try not eat as much fried food. Something that I’ve done in the past was a detox. I eat healthily and only drink tea and water. I usually do that in March or April.

Stay Focused!

In today’s world, there are so many distractions to keep you from being great. Being on social media too much and watching too much reality TV are just a couple of them. Make sure you take time weekly to focus on things you want to do. You will be able to thank yourself later. One thing you can do to help you focus is to turn off every device and just relax and meditate. Meditating will help you focus better. Your thoughts will be clearer.

Check Your Progress!

At the beginning of every month, you should go over your goals and look at your progress. How did you do? Did you complete your goal for the month? Did you fall short? Review what you did or didn’t do. Come up with a plan to work on it next month. Also, make sure that you are prepared to complete your future goals as well.

Stay Positive!

This tip should have been the first one. Stay positive in all situations. You will feel better being positive instead of being negative. I know it’s not always easy to stay positive but just try it. You will be amazed at how things will get better for you. Positive vibes are contagious. You don’t have anything to lose. Try having a positive attitude and see how things change for the better.

  1. You have to also set realistic goals. If you have a very large goal you want to accomplish you have to plan and make smaller goals in order to reach the larger one. I learned that the hard way.

  2. Nice tips. Simple and to the point. My biggest goal this year is to stay positive and not hang out with people who have negative energy. I network a lot in person and it’s amazing to me the long faces and lack of excitement in some people I meet. Not this year for me.

    My goal – keep it simple. I am a social media coach/mentor/consultant and my goal is to streamline MY social media efforts in order to spend more time with and grow my client base.

  3. I’ve been using a FitBit for a few months now to track my activity. I love it and it helps keep me motivated.
