The New Year means we all come up with BIG plans for ourselves. While it is an amazing time to set yourself up for a brand new chapter, we often forget that it’s going to take a different way of thinking to become a different (or enhanced) version of ourselves. That is why the Refocus Band is one of our favorite things to arm ourselves with going into a fresh new year. We also follow these five tips to help us accomplish the BIG stuff we have planned:
- Write down your goals: It’s one thing to think about your goals but really writing them down on paper (or white board) helps solidify your thoughts. It even helps you realize that some goals you thought you had actually aren’t as important once you see them written down.
- Think in the future: Start talking to yourself like you have already accomplished what you are setting out to do. This kind of positive self talk helps your brain envision the outcome and propel you forward when checking off the tasks you need to get done! No more “I will” or “I’m going to”; it’s all about “I am” and “I did”.
- Break down each goal into steps. Giving each goal and action plan is how you actually get things done. Saying you are going to get healthier or learn Spanish is not going to instantly make it possible. You need to plan out step by step even day by day how you are going to get it done.
- Find your why. Diving into the “why” of each of your goals will help you validate the reason you want to accomplish it and that is powerful in keeping you motivated. On the days when accomplishing a task seem difficult you can always reflect back on your why and it will help push you past the uncomfortable or uneasy.
- Talk Positive. This is where your Refocus Band comes in. Negative self talk can keep you from reaching your goals. It’s important to remind yourself that you are capable of anything you set your mind to and our small motivational bracelets are there to help you do just that.
