2020 is here and some of you have started to commit to a new decade with setting up good habits. Here are five simple commitments you can make to yourself that will transform your decade.
In the busy world we live in, it’s often that we hear: I’m so busy, I don’t have time, life is so hectic, etc. Have you ever thought about the fact that you might be able to simplify a bit? Is everything a priority? And a priority for who? What is important to you? What are you going to choose to do with YOUR precious time?
In 2020, see if you can simplify everything that you do. Accept that it can be ‘good enough’. What could be done by somebody else? Hire people to do things you are not good at. It creates employment! Focus on what you are good at and on your talents. Do more of what you enjoy! Live a simple life and enjoy the most valuable resource of the decade: TIME!
2. SPEND TIME OUTSIDE
As I exercise more than 10 times per week indoor, I find myself guilty of not taking enough time to go outside and enjoy some fresh air. My husband and I have created a habit to go for a walk every Sunday. Rain or shine, we have an amazing time getting energized by the wonders of mother nature. In 2020, put some outdoor time to your calendar. Even for just a short walk after dinner.
3. DRINK DRINK DRINK
Is your huge 1L bottle of water that you take to the gym enough? Do you live with the illusion that you drink enough water because you chug down two bottles during your fitness class? We need to drink 8 to 10 cups per day ON TOP of what we drink at the gym. The bottle you carry with you when exercising is only to replenish the water that you lose with sweat. Keep drinking! Always order water at a restaurant, not only will you stay hydrated but it’s also cheaper and healthier than any other beverage! Carry water with you in the car, when you go for a walk, on your desk at work, beside your workstation, etc. Drink, drink, drink, WATER!!!
Eliminate the un-necessary stresses created by clutter in your home. Do you get mad at your underwear drawer every morning as you fight to close it? Take 10 minutes and organize it! Start with little projects, like the baseball hat that has been on the back seat of your car for 2 years. Then take a couple hours and clean up your filing cabinet or your closet. One box to-give-away – one box to-recycle – on box to-keep (it must be really really important to you) – one box that you are not-sure-about (don’t let some items slow you down, if you are not sure, don’t think forever, put them in a Not-Sure-Box).
The least clutter in your life, the more room for abundance to come to you. It is proven that physical clutter has an impact on our mental health. So, get organized and feel great!
If you have a hard time getting rid of something, there is an unconscious reason for it. Remember that it is my specialty to help you find these reasons to end self-sabotage and make room in your life for the abundance you deserve!
5. USE YOUR GOOD STUFF
I have cleaned up over the holidays and found an expensive purse that I bought 5 years ago. I was keeping it for the ‘good’ occasions. Well…. it is now out of fashion! It still looks brand new as I used it about once a year.
This year, use your favorite purse. Dress up. Eat in your favorite plates with your nice cutlery on your favorite tablecloth. Go ahead… You are worth it!
