Are New Year’s resolutions out of date, stale, hackneyed, and boring? How about “New Beginnings” that you can start anytime? Sounds good to me! Here are several to think about:
♦ Living The Golden Rule.
♦ Exploring the topic of Mindfulness and giving that a try. It focuses on living in the moment not the past or the future.
♦ Meditation has been around for hundreds of years and people are seeing its benefit in this chaotic world. I bet there is an app for meditation. Guided meditation is the easiest way to start. Businesses have set aside meditation rooms for employees, believe it or not.
♦ Here’s a hard one if you are a “news-junkie.” Limit your news viewing to an hour a day. Do you really need that newspaper? We cut down to 4 days a week: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Old habits die hard.
♦ Accentuate the Positive.
♦ Keep a Gratitude List, add to it when you can and read it.
♦ If you have been the recipient of a random act of kindness, think of Paying it forward.
A New Beginning takes but a single step. Are you ready?
