It's A New Year - What Do You Want to Create?

The beginning of a new year has an undeniable energy - a sense of renewal, a fresh start, a chance to hit reset.

It's not just about resolutions; it's about envisioning the changes we want to see in ourselves and our lives. 

So it’s a great time to ask yourself, what will you be glad you did when you reach the end of this year?

Imagine having a conversation with your future self, what would that person thank you for doing this year?  

It can be anything at all, even small things like reading more, mastering a few new recipes, spending more time in nature, or dedicating a few fully present minutes each day to being with your kids.

These can add up to some great change over a year.

Or you can dedicate time exploring what it is that lights you up - what do you love doing?

Aspirations v Resolutions

Sometimes it helps to think of it more like an aspiration than a resolution. 

Because it’s not about anything being wrong or needing to be fixed, it’s about welcoming more of what you do want. 

Change can be daunting, but it's also an opportunity.

What changes would make this year extraordinary for you? And whatever it is, imagine how great it will feel looking back and seeing that you’ve woven these things into your life. 

Change is much more likely (and more fun!), when we’re coming from a place of openness and interest, rather than a place of ‘I have to’ because something is wrong, or not working.

Gratitude is a great place to start...

If you are looking for one small simple change, gratitude is a game-changer.

Taking a few moments each day to reflect on what you're grateful for can shift your perspective in powerful ways.

Mindfulness, too, grounds us in the present, helping us savour all the great stuff that is right here, right now, but often easy to overlook.

These things are easy for anyone to start practicing, you don’t need anything to start, and you can practice them anytime, anywhere.

Embrace change, nurture healthy habits, and above all, cherish the journey.
