New year, new life… or at least that is the illusion we all have with the departure of the old year.
This 365-day opportunity to write a new story motivates us to have goals and plans that we can carry out over the year.
To give us a boost, there is a very inspiring tradition, New Year’s Resolutions!
This list of goals and wishes that are made before the start of the new year, or at the beginning of the year, helps us to have a clearer focus on what we want to do.
Want to know more about this ritual? Here at Spanish Express, we give you a hand to help you achieve your resolutions.
Take a pen and paper and write the list with us!
New Year’s Resolutions
It never hurts to have help to accomplish the goals you set for yourself. This is exactly what New Year’s Resolutions are for.
This list of everything you want to accomplish in the course of the 365 days of the new year will help you lay the groundwork for your plans. In addition, it will make you see more clearly the first step you need to take to start fulfilling each of the resolutions you write on the list.
“What can I write?”
It’s only normal to ask yourself this question, as resolutions can vary. You can take a professional route and make them as follows:
- I will take marketing classes this year that will help me get better at my job.
- I will prepare myself to get my dream job.
- I will start my own business.
Any work goals you want to achieve can be written on your New Year’s resolution sheet.
You can do the same with more personal objectives, for example:
- I will take better care of my appearance this year.
- I will start a healthier diet.
- I will do more physical activities.
Do you want to travel, get into college, find the love of your life? All of these and more can be added to your list of New Year’s resolutions.
You must write the resolutions in affirmative sentences, this way, you will be manifesting that they will indeed be fulfilled.
Take a clean sheet of paper or a small notebook and write them down with conviction. Add photos or images to give it a special touch.
You can keep them away or leave them on display, whichever is more convenient for you. In some cultures, they tend to keep them in a drawer until the next 31st December and then proceed to burn them before midnight.
Why make New Year’s resolutions?
While they can inspire you to achieve the goals you want to accomplish, they also serve as a guide.
Putting down on paper the desires you want to see fulfilled can help you visualize in a better way what you want to achieve.
Seeing it written down gives us an order and allows us to think about where to start first and what steps we must follow to get what we want.
Having an idea in your head is not the same as having it written down in a place that will allow you to organize and visualize it.
Of course, New Year’s resolutions are not a magic act. You must know your limits and your availability for each goal you set. Being realistic with what you can do in a year will take away the pressure of wanting to do everything in a short time, it is better to take one step at a time.
Only you know your limits, but don’t forget that you are capable of achieving what you want with the right organization. And this is an excellent tool if the organization is not your forte.
So start writing! You still have time to have a resolution sheet.
