Resolutions get a mixed review, but personally, anything that feels fresh and motivating is something I like getting behind. I find that setting some major goals along with smaller ones (that make me a better person and make life feel better) is a good mix – and you know a lot of them have to include wellness. So, whether you’re looking to boost the self-love or for ideas on how to take better care of yourself, I hope the list below inspires you to do whatever you’re craving!
Here are some self love new years resolution ideas:
Own the power of saying no so that you have more time to yourself.
Find positive mantras that speak to you and repeat them throughout your day. Some that I love: Focus on the good, make yourself proud, I accept myself in this moment, get it girl!
Meditate. Taking time to settle your body and mind is a quick, easy self-care break. Here are 3 different meditation styles to consider.
Nurture friendships you have; good friends don’t come along every day.
Be kind to yourself with your own thoughts.
Commit to and prioritize getting better sleep. Good sleep can do wonders for your life.
Schedule workouts on your calendar so that you don’t skip them. Endorphins are the best medicine!
Spend more time working outside.
Take healthy breaks from social media. Perhaps a tech sabbath every Sunday is in order?
Get involved in your community and give back.
Keep a Gratitude journal and add to it as often as you see fit.
Nourish your body. I find that when I’m feeling blah, eating a healthy, filling meal makes me feel good about myself, plus it adds energy.
In effort to not slip on nourishing your body, commit to having healthy food on hand so you aren’t in a bind when it comes to food choices (I love using InstaCart to help me with this and have a reoccurring order that I place every Sunday).
When you think a negative thought, try to see the positive side in the situation. More on how to do this here.
Commit to one day a week when you don’t complain about anything.
Embrace challenges and turn them into opportunities to grow.
Take a personal day every now and then.
Clean up! Clean your house, your desk, your car, etc. You’ll feel better once your environment and self are all shiny.
Focus on your strengths.
