We're a few weeks into the new decade and the new year's resolutions...can still start.
You've probably heard the "new year, new you" expression, and you've probably made a lot of new year resolutions before.
Whether you've followed through on your goals or not, this year we can change it altogether.
This year we have the Goal Getter Challenge — read on to know how to get involved, and how you can enter to win amazing prices!
HOW IT WORKS
--You can join the Facebook group and learn more HERE.
Through this challenge you can; set up your goals, get on top of your finances, eat healthier, start losing weight, and much more!
— Use your Goal Getter Worksheet (download HERE) to define your goal.
Once you have a goal, shear it with the Facebook group and find an accountability friend. This could be someone you bring with you, a significant other, or just someone you meat from the Goal Getter Facebook group. Having a friend work out with you can dramatically increase success and help you change your life.
Within 90 days, doing one thing to bring yourself closer to your goal every day. As long as you do one thing, studies have shown it takes around 60 to 120 days to establish a habit. Writing down your goal and tracking your progress will go a long way in helping you to stick to your goal.
HOW TO WIN
Don't hesitate to take advantage of these FREE resources by checking in frequently with the GoalGetter Challenge group on Facebook.
While we think the greatest prize is feeling awesome when you reach your goal, we realize sometimes we need a little extra encouragement.
SO, beginning on January 8, we are hosting weekly prize drawings for Goal Getter Challengers!
All you have to do to enter is write a post or share a photo in the Facebook group, at least once during the past week.
This post should be about how you’re working towards your goal (or struggling!) over the past week.
Each Wednesday, we will have a Facebook Live video with a random drawing selected from those who posted over the last week. Be sure to tune in and we will contact the winners.
GET GOING GOAL GETTER
I'm sure, like me, you have recently revisited your goals from last year to see what you want to tackle this new year. One new years resolution we recommend is re-focusing on self-care.
Here are just three tips to start taking care of yourself in this new year. Each of these goals comes with a small challenge to help you be a happier, healthier you.
You can't have a conversation about self-care without talking about meditation and focus. As Prasad Mahes said, “The mind is like water. When it's turbulent, it's difficult to see. When it's calm, everything becomes clear.”
According to research published by the American Psychological Association, The percentage of young Americans experiencing certain types of mental health disorders has risen significantly over the past decade. Taking time to "unplug" and just focus on what your body is telling you is more important than ever.
Challenge: Spend at least two minutes every day in meditation. Take time to relive a positive, happy moment, process an emotion, or simply concentrate on the present.
Exercise and Nutrition
We've all tired to use the new year to lose those extra pounds with the new year. Weather you've succeeded or not, healthy eating and exercise are important part of a healthy mental and physical well being. The main problem that happens is when you try to make all the physichal changes at once. Take your time and use online resources like "Xyngular Guide to a Healthy and Happy Life" for ideas and start changing your life.
Challenge: Accept what you are able to do now and slowly change instead of doing it all at once.
Lastly, our last tip may be the most important. This doesn't mean that you should talk to more people, but that you should foster meaningful relationships. According to Psychology Today, “Social connection strengthens our immune system, helps us recover from disease faster, and may even lengthen our life. People who feel more connected to others have lower rates of anxiety and depression.”
Challenge: Spend at least a few minutes every day connecting with someone (in-person, if possible). Look them in the eyes, practice being present, listen, and enjoy!
