This is the time of the year where Facebook and Instagram floods with New Years resolutions and the famous hashtag #NewYearNewMe.
The sad reality is that by the end of February 2020, 80% of people have already fallen off the wagon and given up on making a significant change in their life.
Making a New Years resolution is a great way to create positive change in your life, wether it’s going to the gym, waking up earlier or saving your money.
We are always and simultaneously at point “A” (which is less desirable than where want to be), moving towards point “B” (which is better than where we are now).
The problem is, most treat a marathon like a sprint. Slow and steady changes might not be sexy, but it’s a lot more effective than the “I want it all and I want it now” mentality.
Small changes last longer because they are manageable. If you have a lot of bad habits today, the last thing you need to do is remodel your entire life overnight.
Instead, add one positive habit or change a week
We have become digitally connected to the entire 7 billion and we are continuously comparing our progress to someone else.
"Remember to compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today".

If you are serious about a #NewYearNewMe for 2020 and want to make improvements in your life, my advice is start small.
It is so important to have goals. You cannot navigate or improve your life without having something to aim at.
Be kind with yourself in 2020 and celebrate every small step along the way.
