Every year, at the end of the year, we all sit around and make resolutions. What are we going to accomplish this year to make ourselves better? Well, this year I decided I didn’t really want to set resolutions. But, I wanted to set daily reminders. Little things that I could think of or little actions I could do every day to improve my well being over time, rather than just working toward one end result (and usually being disappointed with my lack of progress).
I realize that we’re already months into the new year, but I wanted to share my daily reminders, in hopes that these little reminders may inspire you to feel better daily, even in the smallest of ways.
• be kind to myself
• stop comparing myself to others
• be stronger – physically, mentally, spiritually
• stop pleasing everyone, please myself first
• save more money
• drink more water
• go to bed earlier
• read 30 books
• eat mindfully – give my body what it needs
These are a mix of actual things to do, read more / drink more water / save more, and mental notes for myself – be kind / nourish my body / put myself first. None of these are habits that will be made over night, but over time, I know these little things will help me better myself inside and out.
