It’s out with the year 2021 and in with the year 2022! Needless to say, the last couple of years have felt like anything but normal. As we head into 2022, many of us have high hopes and dreams for this fresh start. One way to make sure that you have a successful year is by starting it off strong. Here are 10 ways to kick off your year the right way.
1. Buy a Planner
One way to help kick off your year the right way is by purchasing a brand new planner. There’s nothing that gives you a fresh start quite like a blank planner. In the first few days of the year, you can start to map out and plan what your 2022 will look like. Doing this will help you feel organized and prepared as you set out to experience whatever the new year has in store for you!
2. Start an Exercise Routine
While it may seem cliche, starting an exercise routine is another great way to kick off your year. Whether it’s taking daily walks or doing something more rigorous, moving your body will help you to feel better heading into 2022. Just remember, exercise should be about loving your body, not punishing it! So choose an exercise plan that will make you feel fulfilled and accomplished, not run down and defeated.
3. Read More Books
Starting your new year the right way could include adding some reading to your goals list. Now, we understand that reading isn’t everyone’s favorite hobby, but it is a great way to exercise your mind. Plus, there are so many different genres of books to choose from, you’re bound to find something you enjoy. Heading into 2022 with a strong and broadened mind will surely set your year up for success.
4. Set Achievable Goals
Everyone loves to set solid goals for themselves as they head into a new year. However, many people often give up on those goals within the first few months of the year. What’s the best way to avoid throwing in the towel on your goals? Make them realistic and achievable! Just because a goal may seem small to you doesn’t mean that it’s insignificant. Small, attainable goals can make for a great start to your year that lasts all 365 days.
5. Be More Intentional
It’s so easy to let the busyness of a new year get in the way of being intentional. We encourage everyone to slow down and have more intentionality as you kick off the new year. Doing this will allow you to soak in all of the first moments of 2022 and set some specific intentionality behind everything you do. If you allow the hustle and bustle of life to get in the way, you’ll miss all of the best parts of the start of the year!
6. Meal Prep
Yes, we know the idea of meal prepping can seem very overwhelming. But, meal prepping can actually make your days and weeks feel less overwhelming! Whether there’s a specific diet you’re trying to achieve, or you just want to feel more organized when it comes to food daily, prepping your meals can find you a lot of success. Check out this article with tips on how to ease the meal prepping process!
7. Find a Good Routine
One of the best ways to kick off your year is with a good routine. Start with setting a realistic but effective wake-up time and carry the routine out through your entire day. Solid routines will allow organization for even the most chaotic days. Once you’re able to get into a good rhythm with a good routine, you’ll find that your days go much smoother.
8. Get More Sleep
It’s true! Another way to kick off your year the right way is with more sleep. When you’re able to get the proper amount of sleep each night, you’re able to feel more refreshed and energized throughout your day. Remember, more sleep means getting to bed at a good time. If you include a bedtime in your good routine, you’re sure to rest better and wake up feeling great!
9. Spend More Time Laughing
Laughter is the best medicine and the best way to start a new year. Find things at the beginning of this new year that brings you joy and makes you laugh, and hold onto them tightly. The more you laugh, the more happiness you will feel. Surround yourself with people who bring out the laughter in you!
