It’s been a crazy year and some of us are thinking, ‘Thank Goodness that’s over!’. But nonetheless, it’s still an appropriate time to use the end of the year as a time to reflect on the year that has passed as well as goals for the new year.
Inevitably, questions start to pop up like:
- Have I done everything possible this year to grow as a person? Am I taking good care of myself?
- Am I investing for my future?
- Is my family where I want them to be?
It can sometimes be uncomfortable to analyze your progress. Especially when you aren’t sure how exactly you measure up.
No matter how this year went during this unprecedented time, the big question is: What do you want to do next?
Here are the top 5 ideas to invest in yourself and make 2021 amazing.
Most of our energy is put into taking care of others every day. Without it, we are not as successful or happy in life.
Plus, spending time caring for ourselves gives us more patience and energy for others. So, identify activities that you would enjoy doing to practice some self-care like bubble
baths, reading a book for fun, going for a walk.
Boost your health:
As lockdowns seem inevitable these days, it’s important to get in some exercise. A variety of online classes are always an option. Giving yourself a goal or ‘challenge’ is the first step to building long lasting habits in the healthy lifestyle department.
Some other ideas would be to increase your water intake and reduce your coffee intake. The results? More energy!
Give yourself a day off!
This may sound counter-intuitive, but you don’t have to commit every day of the week. It’s important to give your brain, body and mind a total ‘disconnect’ in order to fully re-energize.
For many people, it’s important to feel accountable to someone other than yourself — and you can create the same motivation through groups. Whether this is a personal trainer, or other members at your gym. Talk about what you need to do to accomplish your goals, then set a deadline and report back on your progress.

Surround yourself with success.
The company we keep can have a huge impact on how we feel and how we spend our time. If you want to accomplish something, surround yourself with people who are working toward (or have accomplished) that same goal.
As the year comes to an end, just keep this in mind – The beginning is the most important part of the work. Let 2021 be your new beginning to a more amazing YOU!
