There are so many times when we have things we want to achieve during the year but since the year is almost over we kind of intentionally moving on. Those last 7 days can make or break our perspective about the year. 2020 was definitely stressful, but every year has it’s up and down when put under a microscope. By making the last days of the year count, you can change the way you think about adversities. Don’t bash yourself. Give yourself the opportunities to try and maybe these good habits will influence you in the long run. Here is how you can make the last days of the year count:
Count Your Blessings (Find Gratitude)
Gratitude is the best way to really think about the positives. Think about the things you’re thankful for and what made 2020 good for you. All those burdens and weight can be extremely tiring to hold onto. There are definitely some times when I would have liked a better outcome, but I have to remember that I can only work with what I have until my time comes to receive my own blessings.
Maybe your goal was to work out 5-6 days a week? Well, you have 7 days left of the year so you can try to reach that goal. You may think it’s too late, but by putting yourself out there you might actually be more consistent if you just try. Even 15-20 minutes a day is good! You don’t have to be a pro. Basic bodyweight movements will still get your blood pumping and body moving.
Meet Your Daily Water Goal
Maybe your goal was to drink 8 cups of water a day (recommended) or maybe a gallon. For the last 7 days, be consistent by drinking your specific water goal each day. You may feel bad for starting late, but your body will never. It’s never too late to start! I bought this 64 oz. or Half-Gallon water bottle for 28$, and I love it! They have it a Walmart as well. Sometimes people look at me crazy carrying it around, but it’s worth it.
Look to See What You Wanted to Accomplish
Look at your past resolutions or goals and see what you can still accomplish. Maybe you wanted to eat healthy, so try eating healthy for 7 days.
Do Things that Make You Happy
It’s all about feeling good physically and mentally. Find your balance where you’re at peace and happy. Obviously, this may not be possible in 7 or fewer days, but finding moments where you can distinguish between your highs and lows will make those disappointments not as harsh on your conscious.
Don’t Overstress on Mistakes
What does Hannah Montana say, “Everybody Makes Mistakes”. It is true! Nobody is perfect and accepting that is the first step to having a good week. This year may not have been what it was meant to be, but just think about what it can be. Just take a deep breath and move on. You are your biggest critic. Live in the now, live in the present, create your future 7 days at a time.
