s It doesn’t have to be New Years Eve in order to set a resolution. It’s important to touch base with yourself, understand where you are in life, and where you would like to be. It’s so hard to believe there’s 100 days left in 2017; however, that’s plenty of time to achieve last-minute aspirations and make the most of it.
1. TRY SOMETHING THAT SCARES YOU
Yes, Halloween is approaching, but this goes beyond haunted houses and horror films. Step out of your comfort zone. Try something that you’ve always wanted to achieve but might have been fearful of the outcome or what others might think because life is too short to wonder “what if?”
2. LESS THINKING, MORE DOING
Along with new achievements, it’s time to put those goals into action. If you’re overthinking and procrastinating on a project, how will it affectively be accomplished? Yes, planning does play a role, but being proactive and going for it will get the job done.
3. DISCOVER NEW ACTIVITIES
Again, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. These next few months are the most festive seasons, and there’s countless activities worth discovering.
4. GIVE BACK
This should not just be limited to the holidays or during hurricane destruction but throughout our lives. Taking the time out to volunteer will not only help others in need but will help us understand how truly blessed we are.
5. UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE
It’s important to look within ourselves, understand our motives, and meditate on who is our ideal-self. List short term, medium term, and long term goals to achieve your best self.
6. REMOVE AT LEAST ONE UNHEALTHY HABIT
It takes 21 days to get rid of a bad habit. So, why not spend the 21 of these 100 days focused on breaking any habits that negatively effect your well being?
7. CHANGE UP YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE
The way the body positively changes and gets in its best shape is by keeping it surprised. If you’re constantly performing the same workout, that is how plateau occurs. If you’re usually into long distance running, try weight training and vice versa. There are so many different types of workout to try before the food-filled holidays arrive.
8. RECONNECT WITH OLD FRIENDS
With the holidays approaching, its important to be thankful and keep in touch with old friends. If you’re no longer living in your hometown, it’s certainly harder to maintain those relationships. However, the upcoming holidays and homecomings will certainly provide those reunions.
9. FINANCIALLY PLAN
Have a clear knowledge of your budget and expenses for the next year, and set monthly financial goals for the remainder of the year as well as next year. Understand which financial goals you did not achieve and how you can prevent making those same mistakes in 2018. Again, set long, medium, and short term goals.
10. SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY LIFE
The end of the year can get stressful, but it’s crucial to take a deep breath and relax. Spend these last 100 days doing what you truly love with loved ones.
