- Wellness Goals for the New Year - January 4, 2023
Wellness goals for the new year and beyond should be challenging but achievable, measurable, and meaningful.
Wellness goals are noble.
Whether you make wellness goals as part of your New Year’s resolutions or are just looking to better yourself, creating wellness goals helps you to monitor and maximize your mental, physical, and spiritual health.
Mental health goals
Some great wellness goals are related to your mental and emotional well-being. These are often the best wellness goals to make because they prioritize self-care.
- Prioritize time for yourself and time to simply relax
- Reduce social media time with a digital detox
- Find sisterhood, connections with likeminded people whom you admire and respect and provide reciprocity
- Find a new hobby
- Explore therapy and counseling options to increase self-awareness and self-development
Physical health goals
Most wellness goals related to your physical self are a call to get moving! When you move your body regularly, it becomes a habit, not a chore.
- Think of exercise as a fun way to take care of yourself; your body is your temple
- Do the body movements that you enjoy the most; dance, walking, and lower-intensity movements still count
- Try 15 minutes a day or 30 minutes every other day
- Move your body during the times that are best for you; mornings, afternoons, or evenings
- Walking and hiking in nature are wonderful for both physical and mental health
Spiritual health goals
Think of your spirit as an integral part of your overall well-being. When you think about it this way, spiritual health should be a natural part of your wellness goal-setting practice.
- Prioritize stillness to listen to what your spirit is telling you; meditation is helpful
- Identify a sacred spot where you can sit or lay down to breathe and tap into Spirit
- When you have difficulties meditating, focus on your breathing
- Use the power of Nature to connect to Spirit
- Create a consistent spiritual practice that is affirming and loving, even if it is just 2 minutes per day
