Congratulations! You’ve made it to 2021! Here are some helpful tips to stay motivated this 2021 year.
1. Start thinking about your goals.
Think about your goals and what you want to achieve. For instance, No goal is too small or too large.
First, brainstorm a list of things you want to do. It can range from small goals like getting a car wash this weekend to planning on purchasing your first home in the next 5 years. Whatever is on your mind, write everything down.
Next, break down your goals into 2 categories, short-term and long term. Short term is definitely based on your own personal preferences, but you can look at it as short-term being your goals to accomplish this year, and long term may be within 5 years, 10 years or so on. However you want to break down your short-term and long term goals.
Your New Year’s resolution list can be as small as 3 things to accomplish this year. Therefore having goals allow you to look towards the future, and having something to drive for everyday.
2. Try new things
There is a saying,
If you find yourself on a constant cycle, routine and feel a sort of plateau, try new things! Maybe order a different drink today, or take the scenic route to work this time. Changing up small things in your routine allow a spunk of spontaneity to your life and allows room for excitement into your life. That way, changing up your daily routine will keep you motivated and stimulated to start your days.
3. Help others stay motivated
Surrounding yourself with motivation helps empower yourself and the people around you. Remember to check on your friends or family. Ask them about their short-term and long-term goals. Helping other stay motivated will make you feel better with motivating yourself to do things.
What are highs without the lows
If you find yourself stuck or out of motivation at any point of this year just know it will be okay! What are the highs without the lows in life? If this happens, try checking back at your list of goals. Try to remember why you wrote them down in the first place.
Maybe your goals aren’t working out the way you wanted it to? Readjust your goals to fit your current situation, or make subgoals and steps you need to do in order to achieve that bigger goals.
Speak to your friends or family about your goals. What can they do to help you and what can you do to help yourself?
In conclusion, this 2021 year has just started and that is all the very reason to start getting motivated now! Think of this new year as a restart, a new chapter or a new journey. Get up and start thinking about your goals!
