Well, the new decade is here in all its glory. Every year, we can look forward to the onset of a new entire calendar marking, and when a new decade comes we feel the need to refresh even more. However, as the clock marks midnight and we enjoy our night out or in with loved ones, we can feel largely the same.
As expected. If we do not take the time to care for ourselves and refresh ourselves for the new year, we can hardly expect to feel different, especially if we’ve done nothing but indulge ourselves over the last two festive weeks. This is where refreshing your mind and soul for the new decade can be so powerful. You’re allowed to do it, you know, even if we’re a few days or even weeks in, depending on when you’re reading this. You’re never too old or too late to work on your health and to feel as though you’re ready for another ten years.
We just hope that the following advice can make this your best ten years yet. You deserve it:
Cleanse & Reset
Spending time cleaning and resetting can be valuable for your spirit. How better then, than to follow a period of detoxing illustrated in the Cleanse and Reset guide written by Dr. Kellyann. This can help you avoid the bad habits of dietary intake and negative consumption that occur when paying little attention to your nutritional needs, and can instead help you start building a new approach to your food intake that has real, positive effects in the long term. With that in mind, you can start off this new decade with the healthiest mind and body possible.
Focus On What Matters
Focus on what really matters, not the smaller elements that needn’t be thought of. Perhaps you can focus on dedicating yourself to training in your job this year, rather than worrying about who gets promoted next. Maybe you can drop one hobby you haven’t been enjoying and instead go for another. Instead of hanging around people you feel little affinity for, you could redouble your efforts to spend time with your family. Knowing what sustains you and opting for that above all can give you a great reinvigorated sense of personal ownership.
Go Out Of Your Way For Inspiration
Perhaps the best way to refresh your mind is to go out and find the inspiration you’ve been craving. It’s very easy for people to fall into their schedules and forget everything else outside of it. Even something as simple as watching a travel documentary can inspire your summer plans, or reading a non-fiction book on a topic you love could help you stoke those fires again. Even going out of your way to visit a local historical landmark can help you once again reflect on the beauty of the world around you. The more you can measure considerations like this, the more you can feel inspired.
With this advice, we hope you can easily refresh your mind and soul for the next decade.
