How to be a Better You in the New Year

Striving to improve yourself does not mean you’re not already a strong person or that you have little self-confidence.  It can’t hurt to learn how to be a better you in the new year. If you’re not making an effort to improve your life, then something might be amiss.

However, it’s not as easy as just deciding to. Take the time to make certain modifications to your life. They don’t have to be extreme or scary, but take some time to look around at things you wouldn’t usually look at in your own life and re-evaluate.

How can you gift yourself with more time?

By simply waking up a half hour earlier than you usually do, you can change your whole day.  This may not be the advice everyone wants to hear, especially for those who are not “morning people”, but waking at least half an hour before your normal time will help jump-start your day.  Take that extra time to do something for yourself before beginning your busy day.  Also, upon waking up, make up your mind that you are going to have a great day, and it’s likely you will.

Another great tip is to start meditating because of how it helps relieve stress.  Meditate with an open mind and heart, and you will be refreshed and renewed.  You can meditate in the morning, at bedtime, or both.  Find what works best for you.  Make sure you start slow and don’t try to force anything.  If you’re thinking too much, you are defeating the purpose of meditation. Be patient because it may take a few times before you see the benefits. If you can make the time for meditating, you can transform your life.

There are even more ways to be a better version of yourself. Read the full article here:
