Here in Somerset, NJ at Atlantic Solutions we are excited to start a new year! It’s natural re-start and everyone is excited, reenergized and goes into it with extremely high ambitions. Lots of people are making New Year’s resolutions, but let’s be honest… how many of them will actually follow through with them? Here are three things that are super easy and you can do right now that will help you have an even better year!
1. Unfollow negative people on social media. We all have those people that pop up on our news feeds that are constantly complaining. Be it the weather, politics, or personal issues… it gets old! There are always going to be unpleasant and challenging things in your own life, so why waste time reading about other peoples? In addition, try to avoid spending time with those types of people. Their negativity will inadvertently wear off on you and nobody’s got time for that.
2. Throw away the clutter! You’ve heard of spring cleaning… well, consider this New Year’s cleaning! Delete old contacts out of your phone, get rid of unused apps, clean out your friends list, go through your drawers and empty your closet. You’ll be surprised how much more relaxed, organized, and less stressed you will feel just by simplifying your environment.
3. Practice gratitude. Stop thinking of what you wish you had and start being grateful for what you do have. Now, we do not mean to stop being ambitious and strive for bigger and better, but you do need to appreciate what you have along the way. When you stop and think about, you are in a much better position than many other people around the world. Once this becomes a habit you will live a happier life.
