Top New Year's Resolutions for Health and Happiness in 2020

Top New Year's Resolutions for Health and Happiness in 2020

Most of us would like to believe that entering a new decade means a clean slate, a chance to do some things differently, and overcome our current limitations. Yes, it’s that time of year again, when we face all of our goals and brace ourselves for failing royally at most of them by the time we hit February. Sometimes, these resolutions are unrealistic or not meant to be, but most of the time, we don’t equip ourselves with the right means to reach the end.

However, no matter if you’re a new mom, a solopreneur, someone chasing after their dream job, or looking at retirement, there are ways to simplify reaching those goals by redefining your resolutions. Think of them as your roadmap, paired with specific ideas on how to follow that path. Without actual strategies, these resolutions mean very little.

So, let’s take a close look at the kind of health and happiness resolutions you should add to your list, paired with the simplest, most effective means to actually reach them.

Manage your stress more mindfully

Manage your stress more mindfully

No matter how naturally calm you might be, some events in life can become stress triggers. Be it a demanding boss, three toddlers screaming and running around the house, or the lack of support from your loved ones, stress can sneak up on you unless you create a preventative system to manage it more effectively.

One of the best ways to prevent stress buildup and negativity is to practice meditation. Even ten or fifteen minutes of this activity can help balance your breathing, form a more positive mindset, and become more resilient to stress in general. You can always use different mindful apps to have guided meditation sessions, or simply find YouTube channels that post such videos on a regular basis.

Build a support system as a new mom

Build a support system as a new mom

Becoming a parent is definitely one of the greatest milestones in our lives. However, the challenges only seem to pile on as we slowly adjust to this new role, and we learn that there’s no one solution to each individual problem we come across. For moms in particular, this can be a very sensitive time, facing postpartum depression, recovery, healing, and getting back into shape, and a slew of other mom-related issues.

Instead of going it alone, you can join a mom community via helpful new mom apps that can provide ample support in the form of advice and comfort, help you get in touch with other moms, and find solutions that you need. It’s already hard enough as it is, and many women have experienced similar problems, so you can tap into these digital resources, become a member of a loving community, and handle each parental conundrum one at a time.

Stay fit with smart tech

Stay fit with smart tech

Tech can either be your best friend or your worst enemy in staying fit over the course of 2020. How? If your only tech-based friend is the TV, you’re bound to become a couch potato. If you love tech, you can benefit from a few handy innovations designed for people eager to get healthy and feel better in their own skin, sans the stress.

Items such as FitBit and similar smart devices are your ideal fitness companions that take the edge away from your entire fitness journey. You can track your food intake, your caloric needs, your activity levels, your heart rate, and other details to help you adjust and perfect your routine. If you can’t measure your progress, you can hardly make the right decisions on your way to becoming healthier, and these tools are the way to do that.

Manage your time better as an entrepreneur

Manage your time better as an entrepreneur

Most business owners and novice entrepreneurs crave success, naturally. The road to that success, however, depends on so many different factors, that focusing on the vague end goal such as “growth” and “success” can only be detrimental. You need to analyze your actions and determine the most common setback you have, and for most entrepreneurs, that means time management. Whether you get distracted with too many digital devices, or you’re still trying to balance your workload by avoiding delegating, time management is the key to any kind of professional success.

Why not turn to tech as your best ally in this endeavor? For example, you can use Trello or a similar PM tool to schedule and manage your assignments, stay on track with deadlines, and monitor your work hours. Other tools can help you track your time for each individual task you complete and give you insights into what you can improve to run your business more smoothly. You’ll boost productivity, get more done, and prevent distractions.

No matter your roles in life and your priorities for 2020, happiness and health for most of us depend on a multitude of different factors. Some of them include managing your chores, adjusting to your new roles in life such as parenthood, and staying healthy despite many temptations. Use these as your little guidelines through your resolutions, and hopefully, you’ll greet the New Year ready to tackle your go
