Repeat after me: 2021 is going to be my best year yet!
Let’s be honest, 2020 was a really hard year for most of us, but there were lots and lots of opportunities to learn as well. Making a list of new year’s resolutions is a great way to start off a new year, but only if there are intentions of following through with those goals. We thought of our best tips and tricks to make 2021 the best year you’ve ever had, so get those journals out and get ready to make this year your best yet!
Start everyday with a clear intention
Whether this is from your favorite oracle card deck or from your list of manifestations, starting each day with a fresh intention will help you to find purpose and clarity in your day-to-day life. An easy way to work intention-setting into your daily routine is through a daily meditation and/or yoga practice. Focusing on your intention during these practices will make it easier for you to remember it throughout the day and make choices that are aligned with it as well. Incorporating a daily journaling practice into your routine might also help with intention-setting. This could help you to figure out how this intention fits into the overall goals you’ve set for yourself.
Tap into some productivity hacks
In terms of goals, 2020 was a bit of a rough year - we get it. If you didn’t achieve everything that you wanted to in 2020, we’re here to tell you that IT’S OKAY. Even though we’re not quite sure how this year is going to pan out, we are going into it with a bit more optimism and some hope that everything will turn out okay. We’re also putting a heavy focus on staying productive, even when times are tough. Some of our favorite tips for productivity are:
- Set small goals for yourself everyday - Start every single day with a blank piece of paper (or your journal) and think about what you can do today to move yourself closer to your goals.
- Think about when you’re most productive - In other words, are you a morning or a night person? Do you feel more alert early in the morning or later in the afternoon/evening? Tuning into when you feel most productive can help you schedule your tasks throughout the day. For example, if you’re more awake and alert in the morning, schedule the tasks that require more brainpower for then and tasks that aren’t as demanding in the afternoon/early evening.
- Set boundaries for yourself - Setting boundaries is probably the most valuable productivity hack we can talk about. Setting clear boundaries not only with yourself but with others as well is so crucial in getting your work done and getting closer to reaching your goals.
Take time to rest and recharge when you need it
If 2020 has taught us anything it’s that life is unpredictable and rest is 100% needed. Last year was really hard and filled with many lessons that we’re ultimately glad that we learned. Something that really stuck with us was that time to rest and recharge when you need it is absolutely crucial in being more productive and achieving your goals. Burnout is a real thing and if we don’t take the time to rest when we need it (instead of waiting for as long as possible), focusing on our goals and making a plan to reach them will be a lot harder.
In a lot of ways, 2020 was a year of disconnection. Many of us couldn’t see the people we cared about most, like our friends and family, or the people we interact with everyday, like our neighbors. Last year definitely forced a lot of us to redefine the relationships we do have and think about what truly matters. We learned new ways to stay connected with each other, despite the current situation we are all going through - thank GOD for Zoom right? One of our goals for this year is to connect more deeply with those we care about most because at the end of the day all we truly have is each other.
Shoot your shot
Remember those goals you set for yourself in 2020? The ones you didn’t quite achieve? Well we’re here to tell you that you can still work toward achieving them this year! Last year was rough for everyone and if you weren’t able to do everything you set out to, it’s okay - we promise. We’re here to encourage you to shoot your shot in 2021 because the worst thing that can happen is you fail or don’t quite get there… so you try again in 2022! Always keep chasing your dreams, we’ll be right alongside you.
