New year, new beginnings, new resolutions! But did you realise how quickly the last decade flew by? And while you’re at it, did it cross your mind how many times you couldn’t fulfill the goals you’d set for yourself?
A new year is a gentle reminder of how we’re running out of time. Time for achieving what we’ve been dreaming of. Because we’re busy wasting it. Isn’t it? We take it for granted and neglect it whereas we should really be pulling it off with things that matter. Like health, self-care, career goals and more.
I had a hard time living up to my resolutions too which is why I am not making any new anymore, instead I will be focused on completing the ones I left midway. Which mostly revolved around my well-being and yet I found it such a task to maintain. So this new year, I am reminding myself and want you to follow it too (if you must) that nothing, absolutely nothing should come in-between you and your happiness. To me, good health is a priority this year. I remember making promises to myself on how diligently I will follow a gym routine and breaking it within a week of implementing. It is because of my sheer negligence that I am not able to be at the best of my health lately and I have vowed to change that fully this year. After all, health is wealth! You realise it more when you fall on the other side of the fence and get involved in a personal tragedy.
Apart from good health, I am going to acknowledge good vibes from all corner! I am determined to spend this year exploring happiness. I do suspect that happiness has a lot to do with the choices we make. And rightly so, I will be focusing on only those things that help me reach my happiness goal. Like Writing! Throughout my life I have only had one true love i.e to scribble! But somehow from the past few months, my attention has been so diverted due to various reasons, that I am not being faithful enough towards this love. I need to change that! Like right away!!
Anxiety has completely taken over my life lately because of my abrupt sleep cycle. This year I am aiming for a much better sleep revolution in my life and am trying to put myself on a strict ritual of getting a minimum of 8-hours sleep. I have been doing some research and found out that one in 3 of us suffers from poor sleep. With stress, computers and taking work home often to be blamed. Lack of sleep has got some serious consequences. And it is more than just bad moods and a lack of focus. It leads us to some monstrous diseases such as Diabetes, Heart Diseases and so on. So folks, if you’re not too fond of your bed then it’s time to fall in love with it or else it will compel you to!
I recently discovered that self-education is an important key to success! Albert Einstein was right when he said, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one learned in school.” A lot of people are stuck in the myth that to in order to learn something you need to be educated on it by someone else even when you can perfectly do it yourself. If you want to live the life you want; You need to take charge of your own education and learning. Learn to educate yourself outside your classroom. And that’s going to be my fourth unresolved goal this year, where I am willing to invest a good amount of time and attention.
Last and most important, this is going to be my year of good ‘mental health’. I vow to be in a great zone spiritually and mentally! Because I know the down side to it and it’s terrible. It’s a vital part of your life and impacts your thoughts, behaviors and emotions.
So dear readers, 2020 of my dreams is going to be completely self-centric and I feel no guilt in admitting that.
While I have jotted down my list of achieving the old resolutions which I couldn’t stick to for long; I request you to find your unresolved goals too and instead of making new, try to accomplish the old ones first.
