A Different Kind of New Year's Resolution
It’s the new year and many of us have probably created lists of things that we want to achieve this year. A great article was recently featured on this blog about setting goals that stick. My article, however, will focus on one particular goal that should be on everyone’s list for a happier year.
For some of you, the new year brings in many new projects and it can be easy for everyone to fall into the trap of work. As exciting as it is, you have to learn to take some time off or at least a moment to breathe. It will do wonders in helping you clear your head for a fresh start and view an idea from a whole new perspective when working on your projects. I would suggest that for at least five to ten minutes each day, stop doing whatever you’re doing at work and start appreciating the things around you, such as listening to the birds chirping, looking at the sun setting, spending some time with the family, etc.
