Staying motivated to achieve your New Years Resolution

It’s that time of year again – the start of a new one filled with possibility and potential. Many of us set New Year’s resolutions with the best of intentions, but sometimes life gets in the way and we find ourselves falling off track. It can be easy to lose motivation and give up on our goals, but it’s important to remember that it’s never too late to get back on track and make progress. If you’re feeling unmotivated and struggling to stay committed to your New Year’s resolutions, there are many things you can do to get back on track and stay motivated. Whether it’s setting small, achievable goals, taking breaks to recharge, or seeking support from friends and family, there are many strategies you can use to regain your motivation and stay committed to your resolutions. So don’t give up – with a little effort and determination, you can achieve your goals and make this year your best one yet!

Here are 8 ideas to consider so you can try to get back on track when you’re feeling unmotivated:

  1. Set small, achievable goals: Break your larger goals down into smaller, more achievable tasks. This can help you make progress and feel more motivated.
  2. Take breaks: Taking breaks can help you recharge and come back to your work feeling more energized.
  3. Find your motivation: Try to identify what is causing your lack of motivation. Once you understand the root cause, you can work on addressing it.
  4. Change your environment: Sometimes a change of scenery can be enough to boost your motivation. Try working in a different location, or rearrange your workspace to make it more inspiring. If you need a new house, we know a great realtor 🙂.
  5. Get organized: Having a cluttered or disorganized workspace can be a distraction. Take some time to tidy up and get organized.
  6. Exercise and eat well: Taking care of your physical health can improve your mental well-being and boost your motivation.
  7. Seek support: Talk to a friend, family member, or colleague about your lack of motivation. They may be able to offer support and encouragement.
  8. Make every Monday a “Wonday”: Start your week off on a positive note by setting an intention for the week ahead. This can help you get back on track and stay motivated.

What's Your Winter Style?

What’s Your Winter Style?

It’s official. The clock has struck twelve and the new year has begun; bringing with it a time of resolutions or rest.

For many, January is the restart button for their workout routines. With the holidays passed they can finally buckle down and bust out the dumbbells again. For others, the winter winds make that idea unimaginable. They would far rather grab their favorite warm drink, a comfy blanket, and cozy up on the couch with the ones they love.

So, which is your winter style? Or are you both?!

For the Workout Warrior

January brings new inspiration to the workout warrior. With a vision of the new year in mind they are dedicated to bringing back that bikini body or conquering some challenging goals.

For the Cozy Cuddler

If the whole workout routine isn’t for you, you probably just need a little more Hygge in your life. Hygge, pronounced “hue-guh,” is a Danish word loosely translated to fun, cozy, comfort, and happy. It’s more than a word though; it’s a concept and a lifestyle. It’s to live in comfort and contentment with the things and people who make you happy. Below are some ways you can bring Hygge into your home.

  1. Wrap yourself in comfort!

    Things like scarves, sweaters, and chunky blankets can really bring a feeling of comfort to a person. Need a new something cozy? Swing by Seaside & Sylvan in Greenbank to find your perfect Hygge style pieces.

  2. Be present!

    Try to remember that this moment right now is special, unique, and will never happen again. If you find this difficult, the app Headspace can give you some meditation techniques to help.

  3. Warm up with a hot drink!

    There’s no spirit lifter quite like a warm cup of coffee, tea, coco, or cider. Lavender Wind Shop and Rock Island Coffee may have just what you need for that warm winter drink.

  4. Spend time with friends!

    Sharing a meal or playing games can be a great way to build community and spread happiness with the people you love. Keep it simple with a Papa Murphy’s Pizza and, our favorite game, Qwirkle!

  5. Find something fun to do!

    Relaxing hobbies like journaling, art, knitting, reading, or hiking can be a great way to bring a sense of peace. Want to discover some great local trails? Download the AllTrails app.
