2020 was a difficult year for many of us. Some of us would say it was the worst year of their lives so far.
The impact of the pandemic, at least in the UK, did suddenly seem to effect life from March. We had carried on our lived as normal from New Years day. Those of us who set resolutions for the year had no idea what was coming.
It is understandable if you are feeling overwhelmed when you think back over the last 12 months. The pandemic does make it harder to plan for the year ahead. But positive forward planning can be difficult for some to achieve, so putting in place a few smaller goals for the year can be really positive.
I’d like to share a great article over at the New York Times: Downsize New Years Resolutions for 2021 – The New York Times (nytimes.com)
A few key points from the article for planning your goals and aims for 2021
- Think about your motivations
- Pick bite sized goals
- Plan how you will achieve a resolution
- Be specific
- Break it down into chunks or milestones
- Write it down
- Be kind to yourself.
