In these few days between Christmas and New Year’s Day many people start thinking about their New Year’s Resolutions. Once you have your mind set on a resolution it can be hard to not jump in full force, but like most people, this leads to giving up by the 15th…if not earlier!
Small Start Tip: Start making over one meal a month. Try for the month of January to just eat a healthier breakfast. Start with 3-4 easy to make options that you like and can rotate easily. Trying to make a different new recipe every single day for the first month will make you feel overwhelmed and lead to much more grocery waste or more expensive grocery bills.
Small Start Tip: To make this resolution more doable try adding this to your existing daily routines. If you’re not great at washing your face at night try doing it while you’re already in the bathroom filling up the kids bathwater. If you want to do a face mask more regularly try putting one on while you plan to clean the bathroom or vacuum.
Small Start Tip: My best tip here is to master one social media platform at a time. Instead of spreading yourself thin and posting mediocre content on all platforms focus on one first and deliver knockout content that will work for you to expand your business. Once you feel like your posts are gaining traction on the one platform you started with and are able to circulate due to popularity you can move on to the next platform and give it a whirl. Once you have spent some time with each platform individually it will be much easier for you to create posts quickly and get your posts in front of more people.
Small Start Tip: Start small by scheduling an hour a week where you unplug from media and devote that time entirely to your family. Make it an appointment on your calendar that you treat like a doctor’s appointment. If you decide to cancel, you pay a cancellation fee to a family fun fund. After a few weeks add in another night a week, and so on and so on, until this is part of your nightly routine with your loved ones that everyone expects and looks forward to.
