Happy New Year! Coming up with resolutions for the new year has become sort of a tradition, but are you creating good resolutions that will benefit your mind, body, and spirit? Negative resolutions such as “I want to lose 20 pounds,” “I want to be in a relationship,” “I want to dress and look better,” can do more harm than good. You may consider making resolutions that do not require you to change who you are or how you look. These kinds of resolutions have a lasting impact on the way you view yourself. Instead, try to create resolutions that are a positive addition to your mental wellbeing. Some resolutions could be taking a walk once a week, taking out 10 minutes a day to reflect, adding more veggies into my diet, and most importantly, building stronger relationships with the ones I love. Also, make sure your resolutions are attainable; creating unrealistic goals will ultimately put you down in the dumps when you don’t succeed. Start this year with fresh resolutions and let it be known that 2019 will be a great year!
