Are you ready for a fresh start? Maybe you've been thinking about some changes you want to make or things you want to do differently. But now that it's actually here, it can feel a bit daunting. Where do you even begin?
Don't worry, mama. You've got this. We're going to help you create a new perspective for the new year - one that is positive, optimistic, and productive. Let's get started!
Why it's important to have a fresh start in the new year
New Year's resolutions are like a healthy restock of your spirit and ambition that you've been living off of all year long. As a working mom, a healthy dose of fresh energy makes it easier to stay ahead of burnout. A fresh start also helps you build new healthy habits to ensure that 2021 is on track to be the best year yet! And if things don't go quite as planned, then having faith will get you back on track for when you need that extra push to tackle challenges with more vigor. So pass up the year's leftovers and start something new in 2021 - a fresh start is what you need!
How to declutter your mind and your space
To get your mind and space in order, you need to go on a "decluttering spree". Clear out the cobwebs of stress from your head and also everything else that no longer serves a purpose. Take a few moments each day to relax your body and mind, letting go of all the worries that hold you back. We all like to keep memories around but take a step back and only keep those items that truly add value to your life. Organizing everything, whether its thoughts or physical stuff, will not only give you greater mental clarity but also more room in the house! So get moving, chuck out what doesn't make sense anymore, and feel free again!
Setting realistic goals for yourself
I'm a firm believer in setting realistic goals for myself; if they're too easy they won't be worth it but if they're too hard then chances are I'm going to get overwhelmed and not bother at all. By making my goals SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Timely) for me to realistically reach I can make sure that I stay on track with making progress. But at the same time, when I achieve those goals I don't shy away from upping my game and pushing me out of my comfort zone just a little bit. All this effort does pay off in the end!
Letting go of negative thoughts and people
Who needs to be surrounded by negative people and thoughts when you can choose to take a step back, reconsider your mindset, and be at peace? Letting go of people who hold you back in life or bring out the worst from within (or both) is only going to help open the door to abundance! No one should live a life feeling weighed down, dragging their feet through every new change. It's time for everyone to wake up and smell the coffee - it's time to start taking changes into your own hands and replacing those negative thoughts with something that sparks joy. It's time to do your personal growth a favor - spread your wings and fly away from it all!
Surrounding yourself with positivity
Having faith in God, and the power of love can move mountains! It is the foundation of creating a positive environment. Disrupting negative patterns of behavior and thought can be hard work but if it’s your faith in yourself and faith in God that drives you then you have nothing to worry about! Speak truth over any situation or life challenge with passion and conviction always, no matter what negativity is thrown at you by others. Surround yourself with positivity and faith; let it radiate outwards for it will be returned to you x2!
Change can be exciting - it's an opportunity to break out of the same old routine and do something new! Even if it doesn't seem like a positive change at first, it can often lead to great things in the long run. Embracing change is ultimately how we grow and evolve as people, so don't be scared - take risks and take life by the horns. After all, you never know what kind of amazing possibilities await!
