Happy 2019 and we hope all of our residents are having a great start to the new year! As we depart from the holiday season and get into our routines again, it’s important to make sure we’re fully taking advantage of this new year.
If you’re looking for ways to kickstart your 2019, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few ideas to think about for a new years resolution:
–Start Meditating: Taking a few minutes out of your day to meditate has incredible benefits like reducing stress, anxiety, and improving overall mood. Once you add it to your routine you’ll wonder how you’ve managed without it.
–Learn Something Each Day: It’s 2019 and that means you still have access to the internet, which is home to incredible sources of information. A fun/educational thing you can do is subscribe to various email newsletters, like the Morning Brew or Wikipedia’s Featured Article mailing list. This can be an easy and quick way to pick up new information every day without trying too hard.
–Read More: Staying on the education/knowledge side of things, reading more is always a good start when looking for a resolution. Taking a break from your screen for even a half hour each day and reading a book can be a great way to disconnect and use that brainpower towards a fascinating story or thought-provoking novel.
–Enjoy the Outdoors: Depending on your lifestyle, it can be draining spending most of your time inside. Finding reasons to spend time outside can really brighten up your mental health and give you something to look forward to each weekend or month.
–Volunteer: Giving back to your community or volunteering is a rewarding way to spend part of your day. It can give you a chance to make a contribution to those really in need or help and allow some reflection to appreciate what you have in your life.
No matter what you choose to do this new year, we hope you do so with a great attitude and a positive outlook!
