Every year around this time people begin to set their new year’s resolutions: lose weight, quit smoking, exercise more. Many people have mixed feelings about new year’s resolutions. Some see them as ways to better themselves in the new year, and others view them as lofty goals that will soon be abandoned.
Forbes Magazine suggests that you make goals this new year instead of resolutions. So, what’s the difference? Goals are more specific, as opposed to resolutions which tend to be vague. For example, a resolution might be to live a healthier lifestyle, while a goal could be to go to the gym 3 times a week.
Forbes goes on to say that goals require to you make plans and take steps. So, if there’s something that you would like to do this year, think about what you have to do to accomplish and then set attainable and realistic road marks to track your progress along the way.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to make a positive change only at the new year. Anytime that you have an improvement you’d like to make in your life, you can!
Make your mental health a priority this year and give us a call at Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine in Augusta County, VA.
