Are you trying to make a fresh start in 2022? Here at the end of January, does it already seem you can’t get off to the start that you wanted? The truth is that even if you already gave up on your New Year’s resolutions (or if you never had them), there’s still plenty of time in 2022 to turn things around. Los Angeles therapist Dr. Yvonne Thomas has some suggestions for this.
Some Ways To Help Your Fresh Start Get Off The Ground
If you’re reading this blog, it’s entirely possible that you’ve read several other articles/blogs telling you one way or another to get off to a fresh start. The best thing you can do is to try something and then if it doesn’t work for you, try something else. Many people have been successful by incorporating gratitude into their everyday life, feeling appreciative for what happened that day and what they have in their life. This gratitude can help a person see more of the “bigger picture” of one’s life and have more joy. Committing to taking care of yourself whether it’s through an emphasis on fitness, nutrition, good sleep, and more, can help as well. Remember; if one thing doesn’t work for you, that’s OK. You can always try something else that healthy and can be a positive addition to your life.
Decluttering Your Life
If you’re like so many people, you may feel overwhelmed and stressed by all that you have to do in a given day. Although decluttering can be greatly beneficial, it’s not unusual to start doing this and then give up. The best way to start decluttering your life (other than to just actually start doing it, which is important) is to begin with something small. Start with something you can do right now and that can give you a tangible win which can be positively reinforcing. Maybe it’s organizing your desk. Perhaps it’s cleaning out your closet or putting your laundry away. Once you’ve decluttered one aspect of your life, keep maintaining that orderliness while moving on to tackle another area, etc.
Prioritizing The Different Parts Of Your Life
If you feel like you’re working very hard and doing everything you can yet still aren’t happy, it’s entirely possible that you haven’t prioritized what matters most to you in life. The start of the year is a great time to identify your core values and what matters most to you. Then, you can connect those values with your goals of what you truly want in your life. From these, you can develop healthy daily habits which can help you to achieve those goals. Again, if something doesn’t work for you, you can always try something else to assist you in living your life in congruence with your priorities and values.
