It is most likely that your visions and plans for this year changed over the course of the year due to different events. In the last few weeks of this year, you still have the chance to do things that will leave you feeling like you ended this year better than you started it, and you will be entering the new year as a better version of yourself.
1. Schedule time for self care
Select a day from your busy schedule and use that time to take care of yourself. Take a break from all the things that stress you and focus more on your health.
Spend that time doing the things that make you happy. Whatever you choose to do on that day should relax you and give you a sense of satisfaction. When you take care of yourself, you’re better prepared to take care of those you care about.
2. List your accomplishments and reflect
Take a moment to reflect on all the things you’re thankful for and what you’ve accomplished this year. It doesn’t have to be big achievements.
Celebrate your wins no matter how small but also take a step back to re-examine the goals you couldn’t achieve. Figure out what went wrong and how you can do better next year.
3. Get your finances in order
Don’t let the excitement of the holiday season (and end of year sales) railroad your finances. A little restraint now will pay off in the long run.
You need to take time to examine your finances and ensure they are in order. If they aren’t, start working towards building healthy financial habits. No matter how little or large you’re earning, you should learn to make your money work for you.
4. Set your goals for next year
Do some soul searching and forward-thinking during these last weeks of 2021. Picture your life down to the last detail. Let go of the past and focus on the future.
Have a positive mindset. You should be intentional about how the new year should be and write down your goals. You can always refer back to this list if you feel lost during the new year.
5. Have an action plan
To reach your goals, you need an action plan. The plan must be specific and sequential so that you always know what steps to take next.
You could have the goal of being financially secure, but without a source of income, saving, and also investing that goal can never actualize. Taking steps in the right direction is much easier when you know where you want to go.
You still have time to do one of two things that will motivate and inspire you in the new year, just as this list is meant to remind you that the year isn’t over just yet. If you haven’t yet, start investing towards a future you deserve. Visit www.overwood.ng to get started.
