Hey loves, this year is almost over and before you know it we’ll be wishing each other happy new year. So here are some things to do at the end of the year so next year can run smoothly and have an amazing 2021.
7 Things To Do To Start 2021 On A Good Note
1. Be Grateful
Give thanks, take the time out to appreciate your family and friends and everyone that has helped you in one way or the other this year. Be grateful for the little things you have if not you mostly likely won’t appreciate the big things because you are expecting bigger things.
Gratitude turns what you have into enough. Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.
Write a list of things you’re grateful for this year. Here’s mine
2. List Things You Are Leaving Behind In 2020
We all have things or people we need to detach ourselves from, now is the time to make a list of those things.
You can make a list of the bad habits you need to stop, the toxic friendship/ relationship you need to detach yourself from.
What’s the thing you need to give up so you can be happier in 2021?
Declutter your surroundings, organize your home, wardrobe, kitchen and every area of your house that needs organizing. Do away with things you don’t need, stop storing unnecessary things you don’t have use of. Now is a time to let them go.
Declutter your phone, your contact list, your email list, the people you follow on social media. Just clear out things you no longer need there.
4. Achievement List
Despite all that happened, you still smashed some goals whether big or small. Write them down. What were those things that you were hoping to achieve the year before that you finally did this year? Write it down, write out all you accomplished. It could be how many books you read, the new hobby you started, the new skill you learned, the new job you started, the new business you started.
Whatever felt like an achievement to you write it down. It will make you confident to try out more and there’s just this sense of pride that comes with it.
5. Reflect on the past year
Review the year. How was it like for you? What were you ups and downs? What were you proud of? What made you happy? What did you accomplish? What did you learn? These are questions you need to ask yourself when reflecting on the past year.
6. Write Out New Habits You Need To Develop.
A habit is a routine or behavior that is performed regularly and in most cases automatically.
What are the new habits you want to develop that will make you a better person in 2021?
It could be mastering self discipline , saying your affirmations daily , having a morning routine, having a day for self care, it could also be a reading or listening habit, meditating, following a skincare routine or eating healthier.
Whatever habit you want to cultivate, write them down and make a conscious effort to follow through them.
7. Set Goals For The New Year
You’ve probably been seeing this everywhere right? Set goals and not resolutions. Have a clearly defined goal that is specific, measurable and time bound. Your goals need to be ABC and SMART.
