Happiest New Year

be inspired

top tips for keeping those resolutions...

Welcoming in 2021 may have been a much quieter affair this year and although a new national lockdown brings many challenges, we still believe it's a time for optimism. This year more than ever many of us will be resolving to try and make the year as good as possible for ourselves and those around us. But how do we make sure we stick with those good intentions?

We believe 2021 should be the year we're kinder to ourselves (and others) so taking the 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing as inspiration, here are our tips for resolving to make this year a good one.

1. Be realistic.

Set yourself small attainable goals rather than a sweeping change of lifestyle, that way you will get a satisfying sense of progress with every little achievement. Being more active is one of the key ways to feeling happier but it doesn't have to be a punishing home gym regime - gentle yoga or a stroll outside are just as good!

2. Keep a track.

Track those goals with a daily journal, note down what you've achieved and how you feel. Looking back on the notes will give you a real sense of achievement and help on the days when you're not feeling motivated. Plus, being mindful and taking time to notice how you're feeling and what's happening around you is proven to positively change how you feel.

3. Be kind to yourself (and others).

Don't put yourself on a punishing diet or harsh detox regime. Remember, it's winter and you're body (and mind) will respond better to the comfort of nourishing soups, healthy stews and nutrient packed smoothies. And being kind to others is proven to increase wellbeing - whether that's raising money for charity or simply helping a friend or relative.

4. Buddy up.

Evidence suggests that feeling close to and connecting with other people is a fundamental human need and there's nothing like partnering up with a pal who has similar goals to help you stick with a resolution - whether that's virtually or someone in your household or bubble. You'll benefit from the mutual support and of course, it's fun to share!

5. Have fun!

We're more likely to stick with a new activity if it's fun, so if pounding the pavement really isn't your thing, why not simply cue up your favourite tracks and boogy around the kitchen; wrap up warm and take the kids on a nature ramble; or pop in your ear pods and listen to a favourite audiobook or podcast as you go for a stroll.
