2016 is coming to a close and I am already dreaming up big ideas for 2017. If you are like me and are always going, going, going; setting some realistic resolutions for the New Year is probably a good idea. Below is a list of 25 New Year’s resolutions you can actually keep. These resolutions are for any adult, but I think are exceptionally important for the parents of children with special needs.
Visit 5 places in your hometown that you have never been to (check out Hula Frog for local events)
Try New Programs (like our Music and Yoga groups!)
Explore new therapies
Visit your state’s capital
Stop worrying so much
Practice self-love daily
Get more organized
Don’t be afraid to say “no”
Take more pictures
Take more risks
Meditate (our Mindfulness, Meditation and Me class can get your little one in on the fun!)
Volunteer for a charity that is close to your heart
Start a blog
Don’t be so hard on yourself
Reconnect with an old friend
Get more sleep
Be more patient
Remind yourself that it is OK to ask for help
Think of three good things that happened at the end of each day
Become a better listener
Avoid fast food restaurants
Eat more super foods
Find an encouraging quote to help tackle each day
Create a playlist for every occasion
I hope these give you some inspiration for 2017. I think we all need to take some time in the New Year to focus on us. Cut yourself some slack and give yourself some love, you deserve it!
