Starting an exercise program, eating whole foods, and sleeping longer are all great ways to feel better, and are often included among peoples' New Year's resolutions. But wouldn't it be easier to stick to these, if you worked on being happier overall? So here are 3 ways to make 2014 your best year ever!
Be kind to others:
Babysit your friends' kids, cook for a neighbor, hug people for no reason, smile at strangers, open doors, tip more or volunteer. Write a recommendation on LinkedIn for your co-workers, a Google review for a small business you really enjoy, a testimony for your teachers, massage therapist or acupuncturist :)
Be kind to yourself:
Book a massage and take charge of your health. Sink in a bubble bath weekly. Learn something new, or register for a course. Plan a weekend getaway. Take time to read, sing, laugh and dance, even if it's in your living room and by yourself :)
What hasn't been working for you in the past year? It's time to make some changes and find solutions to problems. Do you deserve a raise? Then just ask! Communicate your needs to others, learn to say no, and ask for help. Basically implement new ways to make your life easier.
Remember what makes you happy and DO IT OFTEN!
One of my patients told me, years ago she sang in a choir and hadn't done so for years. It used to bring her immense joy, so this year she vowed to get her voice back and sing again.
Being kind to others will bring you joy, being kind to yourself will bring you peace, and reassessing your priority will make you whole.
Here's to a great year filled with health, happiness and kindness!
