New Year, New Goals: Tips to Improve Your Productivity

Each new year, resolutions are made and quickly abandoned. While many people plan resolutions for the new year, some give up on them. The secret is to set goals that are specific, reasonable and attainable. Below are some New Year’s resolutions that will revamp your productivity.

Get Some Exercise: This is the most popular New Year’s resolution and the one that is most likely to be dropped. Most are tempted to start out with a rigorous exercise routine, however for some this can be daunting and unrealistic. Instead, plan an exercise routine that starts out small and builds over time. If you are new to exercising, start with taking a walk or with a few push-ups/sit-ups. Over time, you can work your way up to a daily exercise routine that best suits your needs. Exercise is an excellent stress reliever that will leave you healthy and energized, allowing you to be more productive in your everyday life.

Drop Any Bad Habits: Are you looking to quit smoking? Do you think you spend too much time on social media? If you are looking to drop any bad habits, the new year is the perfect time to get a fresh start. Also, when you successfully drop a bad habit, reward yourself for your dedication! Buy yourself something nice or treat yourself with a visit to the spa. Dropping bad habits will allow you to be more productive in the new year.

Get a Daily Planner: One of the easiest ways to get your life organized is to start using a daily planner. With a planner you can plan out your week, month and year. This is especially helpful if you struggle with procrastination. With a planner, you will always be aware of deadlines and any important dates. Organization is essential for productivity.

Set Goals for the Year: Perhaps you want to travel more? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar? With life’s many obligations, it can be easy to lose sight of your interests and hobbies. Acquiring some new hobbies will keep you busy and productive. Setting a few personal goals for the year will help you to direct your focus to where it matters most: you.
