Let’s Talk New Year’s Resolutions

Oftentimes, when we’re thinking of New Year’s resolutions, we think about what we want to bring into our lives—how we want to change, or what we want to start doing or achieving. Maybe you’ve already made a few of those. This year, we challenge you to take a different approach. Instead of being so focused on what you want to add, what if you switched your focus to really appreciating what you already have? Direct actions you can take include doing a gratitude list every morning or evening, giving thanks before you eat your meals, and calling friends or family more often to show you are grateful to have them in your life. Of course, looking to change and improve is always important, but so is truly embracing and appreciating all the gifts that are right in front of you, because that is one of the most important contributors to happiness.
