How to get rid of this discouragement and fight boredom in the first days of a new year?
Take care of your body and your health
Start by reviewing your eating habits and make the necessary corrections to have a healthy and balanced diet.
Don’t postpone routine health checks that should have been completed in 2022 any longer. Go to your doctor and do everything necessary to be in good health.
do physical exercise
The best measure to end the physical and psychological stagnation you feel is to exercise. Look for a gym or dance, yoga or martial arts schools.
Renewing energy through physical exercise is very rewarding and returns a unique well-being to the body and mind.
Organize your space
In your home or at work, the clutter and mess of things you don’t need can drain you of a lot of energy due to the discomfort it translates into.
Select, arrange, organize things to make your environment more welcoming and comfortable. This process also helps to organize the mind and ideas.
Delegate the tasks you don’t feel capable of doing
Unable to do all tasks. Some you can pass on to someone you trust who will do them as well or better, leaving you time to do the tasks you love most with more time.
look for nature
Take a walk through nature and try to spend a few hours, or days, in a calm and natural place. The river, the mountains, the forests, the animals, the flowers and the plants are the best antidote for stress and the worn out routine of everyday life. The pure air refreshes the state of mind and calms the mind.
pay your debts
There’s nothing better than knowing you don’t owe anyone anything and nobody owes you. Paying bills on time, not leaving debts behind, even those that were forgotten in 2022 and the almost insignificant ones. The peace of mind of having everything up to date is golden for feeling good in your conscience.
Define a strategy to deliver on goals and promises
Start now, don’t leave it for tomorrow! define your goals and objectives for the new yearcan be monthly, quarterly, or whatever is most appropriate.
Establish a plan for each, think of a strategy to achieve all your goals and fulfill all your promises. Every day will be important and every effort invested will bring results in your favor.
Don’t postpone your dreams
It’s time to sit face to face with your dream(s). Don’t waste energy on excuses, resistance, negotiations and psychological impossibilities of your own making.
Look the dream(s) straight in the eye! Address them as “you”.
Be determined and take responsibility for your path! Don’t whine about difficulties. Find out the possibilities and put all your energy at the service of realizing your dream(s).
Are there charges? Sure! But they are smaller when we live close to our dreams, our purpose, our responsibility, our best than when we live in the shadow of fear, laziness and obstacles.
