The start of a new year is always an exciting time. It's a chance for a fresh start, new beginnings, and a time to reflect on the past year's accomplishments and lessons. However, this year, as we bid farewell to 2024, it's safe to say that the world is collectively looking forward to the new year more than ever.
With the ongoing pandemic and various restrictions in place, celebrating the new year may not look the same as previous years. But that doesn't mean we can't make it special and meaningful. In fact, this might be the perfect opportunity to embrace the idea of ringing in the new year at home.
Healing and Self-Reflection
The past year has been challenging on so many levels. It has tested our resilience, pushed us out of our comfort zones, and forced us to confront our fears and uncertainties. As we enter a new year, it's important to take the time to heal and reflect on these experiences.
Ringing in the new year at home provides a calm and comfortable environment for self-reflection. Set aside some time to journal, meditate, or simply sit in silence. Reflect on the lessons you've learned, the growth you've experienced, and the goals you want to set for the year ahead.
Focusing Your Intentions
One of the most powerful ways to kickstart the new year is by setting intentions. Intentions are different from resolutions in that they focus more on how you want to feel and what you want to invite into your life, rather than specific goals or achievements.
Create a sacred space in your home where you can focus on your intentions. Light candles, burn incense, or play soothing music to create a safe place.
Here are some tips to prepare for the New Year. Remember, Queen's time is an illusion. What you do with your time sets the tone for how your year begins and ends. Challenge yourself going into the New Year by stepping out of your comfort zone; I challenge you to write down five new goals you are going to accomplish this month. My top 5 goals I will do differently are listed below.
My 5 Goals for January
To practice good Chi, I must protect my energy and be aware that my energy is sacred. I must defend my peace from stress and negative energy.
2. Creating New Content- My goal is to create new content that captures who I am; I want my audience to know who I am and what my brand is. I connect to my audience even if only one person reads my blogs.
3. Working out at least 3-5 times a week- New Year is about reinventing yourself. My body is my temple, which is essential to make fitness my top priority. Working out allows me to be mentally and emotionally fit; working out is more than just burning calories; it's a time to connect to yourself and know your body.
4. Eating Healthy- From fresh fruits to fresh veggies, I am starting to open my taste pallet to more foods that are fresh; the older we become, the more our bodies can not handle the same foods from our younger 20s. I challenge myself to have no fast food for the next 30 days. My lifestyle will consist of fresh organic fruits and veggies and more water.
5. Self-Care Day- Working 40-60 hours a week is a lot for anyone; constantly working a 9-5 can be stressful. I am making it my top priority to make a day for myself. No Phones, No texts, No emails, Just a day where I enjoy doing things for myself and focus on self-healing.
