What drives you to make yourself better? Do you wait until you have hit a wall or are bored with your work? When do you focus on being healthier? Is it when you suffer an injury or nagging pain stops you from doing the things you love?
Instead of waiting for January 1 to do a total reset, start practicing mindfulness and maintenance everyday. It is easier to do 10 minutes of body work a day to stay healthy and avoid aches and pains than suffer an injury that will set you back for three months.
Read books or blogs (like this one!) that challenge you. Focus on not only sharpening your current skills but creating new ones. Life is about learning and progressing everyday.
If you choose to do body maintenance each day for 10 minutes and challenge yourself everyday by reading something new or trying to learn a new skill, by the end of 365 days you will be ahead of your curve. You won’t need a January 1 reset. The New Year will now mean 365 more days of learning and personal growth.
Make it the best day!
