3 ideas to help you have a happier year
The New Year is something of a clean slate. We start a new calendar, make resolutions, pop champagne, and a few days later, jump into a January of slightly elongating days with a fresh hope that this year we can begin again, and do it all better.
But wherever you go, there you are. Flipping a page on the calendar isn’t going to dramatically alter our day-to-day habits. For the average person change happens incrementally, just a little at a time, with baby steps.
Here are some ideas, just a few little changes you can make to improve your health, life, and happiness over the next year.
Use your tools
You’ve probably got a computer and a smart phone. And I bet you spend plenty of time using them. But are you using them well?
A great shopping list app can reduce the number of trips you make to the store, and the amount of cash you spend on groceries.
Download a meditation app. Instead of sitting on social media why not do a few minutes of meditation.
Download an affirmation app like ‘Art of Affirmation Daily’. Use this app to use get your day off to a positive way inspiring you to live a more productive positive life.
Taking full advantage of the technology at hand can actually simplify and help your life.
So many people struggle to say no, including myself! We all want to make people happy but sometimes we forget about ourselves until its too late and we burn out. So this year why not practise saying ‘NO’. Your time and energy are valuable commodities, spend them carefully. If you have trouble saying no, practice it. Really. It helps to be prepared with a reply that is kind, but still conveys a firm, “No.”
Schedule regular massage (you had to know that was coming)
Massage is known to reduce stress, alleviate pain, and enhance the quality of sleep. If you think you can’t spare the time or funds for massage, consider this: what’s it worth to give your family, friends, and co-workers a happier, more productive YOU? (A lot. It’s worth a lot.) Regular can mean weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Whatever works for you is just fine, but stick to it. After you get a massage, I’ll always ask if you want to schedule your next appointment. Do it!
