If you love writing and expressing yourself through your words or you just have something to share with people feel free to start a blog, it doesn’t have to be anything serious as long as you enjoy doing it or see it as an hobby.
Another thing you can do is start a business, you can find a problem in your niche, discover the solution and sell the results through products or services.
4. Spend your money wisely
2020 really shook a lot of people, some lost their jobs and had no means of livelihood and I can just imagine what it would have been like if the person had no savings because they were buying everything they could think of.
Something you should do this year with your money which I’m sure you already do is save, spend wisely and invest.
5. Learn A Skill
Another advisable thing is to learn a skill more advisable is to learn high income skills like copywriting, web design, sales closing and so on. You can also decide to learn other things as well and make it a hobby or start a business through them like catering, events decoration, fashion designing and the likes. It’s a good way to occupy yourself and also make money from.
6. Learn A New Language
Another great thing to do is to learn a new language. It helps you connect with other people in the world effectively without a communication barrier.
7. Read Self Improvement Books
Self improvement books are the way to go if you’re trying to discover yourself and your life purpose, work on yourself, your habits and mindset and just to improve your life in general and be more positive and happy. If there’s any area of your life you want to work on there’s a book for it. Another set of books to read are financial books.
There are a lot of books I read that changed my mindset and if you want me to make a post or recommendations for books to read comment it down below.
8. Watch motivational videos
YouTube is my go to place for this. There are a lot of channels that uploads motivational videos related to success and all the good stuff. You can watch Tedx talks as well, Jay Shetty, Les Brown, T.D Jakes and so on. You can also watch videos of financial gurus like Gary Vee, Dan Lok, Grant Gardone etc.
You can do well to watch them in the morning when you just wake up or when you are about to sleep, it’s what I do.
9. Listen to uplifting podcasts
This is something I’m trying to get into more. I listen to podcasts but just a few friends that are podcasters and I’m hoping to broaden my podcast horizon so if you have any suggestions leave them below and if you prefer listening to watching or reading podcasts are great.
10. Change your old habits
I finally read Atomic Habits and I’m so glad I did, it’s my first read of the year and it was a really good one. In his book, James Clear shares way you can change your old habits and develop a new one. I will most likely do a post on how to change your old habits and habits to develop in 2021.
A good thing to do is change your bad habits especially ones that are harmful to you and your body.
11. Say your affirmations
I’m really big on affirmations. They are just a good way to staying positive and you can create yours as well, it doesn’t have to be long or anything as long as you can connect with it. A good thing to do this year is to say your affirmations day and night.
Here’s my latest on affirmations
Journaling your thoughts is a good way to track them, your emotions, your feelings and a lot more. It is an exercise you will enjoy doing and learn about yourself more from doing them.
13. Meditate and exercise
This can also be pray and exercise. I prefer praying to meditation but sometimes you just need to sit and listen to your inner voice and connect with it.
One thing I’ll love to do is exercise, nothing major though, just do some things that can reduce belly fat since my stomach is slipping away from the flat tummy gang.
14. Spend less time on your phone
We all fall into the hole of social media and just sink into it more and more and more it’s only advisable to spend less time on your phone especially if you’re not working with it. Try avoiding distractions when working and try connecting more with people around you.
Some Things You Can Do When We Finally Say Goodbye To Corona And No longer On Lockdown
16. Attend A Social Event
Hopefully when the whole Corona experience is over we will get to skip zoom meetings and video calls and meet in person, attend a seminar, workshop or party and just connect with other people physically.
I know a lot of people had a lot of travel plans that got cancelled so hopefully when things get better this year it will be a good thing to explore and visit the countries and places you want to.
18. Do something you’ve never done
Now is a good time to do something you’ve never done, try out something you’ve always wanted to do, go somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. Visit that restaurant, try out new recipes, climb that mountain and just explore and have fun.
19. Hang out with friends and family
Hopefully we get to do this more this year and just have a general family get together and also hang out with friends going out on lunch dates, picnic and doing other fun things.
Just do what you want to do, be who you want to be. Create the life you want to live and don’t let anything stop you. Most importantly don’t stop yourself. Don’t sell yourself short. Live, love, learn, laugh.
21. Create your dream life
Everyone has goals, dreams and aspirations, this year live it, work towards it. Do your best to live your dream life, get that dream job, buy your dream house, publish that book. Whatever thing you want for yourself this year, do your best to create it.
