Alternatives to New Year’s Resolutions

Posted in Blog on January 25th, 2022.

A New Year & Our Mission Statement

Each year Resolutions on New Year’s Day are made. Some Resolutions are achieved where others are not. A better practice is creating a SMART Goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound), which we have presented in previous emails. Again, the success rate is not perfect. This year we want to present alternatives. We see these options as a combination of Resolutions and SMART Goals. For those with issues achieving a resolution or goal, these options may prove successful and help boost self-confidence and positivity.

  • Create a personal Mission Statement.
  • Compile a bucket list.
  • Write a letter to your future self.
  • Create a monthly challenge.
  • Join a yearly challenge.
  • Pick something personal to track or measure.
  • Practice mindfulness / meditation.
  • Form realistic “To do…” lists.
  • Build a vision board.
  • Reboot an area of your life.
  • Use a word or mantra of the week or month.
  • Decide on one-word for the year. (Choose one word that gives you clarity and focus and summarizes what you want for the year.)
  • Perform gratitude exercises. (Examples: gratitude journaling or periodic “I’m grateful for…” statements.)
  • Construct a jar of goals. (Choose non-time specific goals: pick a goal from the jar; achieve it; repeat.)

As always, if your goals/resolutions/alternatives are helped by additional education and training, we hope you consider our online, self-paced options.
