The new year is coming soon. It is customary to make goals for the upcoming year and reflect on what happened this past.
I have talked to many people, and they all agree that 2018 flew by. It was not an easy year either. I urge you to reflect on the year.
I find that reflection allows me to understand what I can do differently in the new year. This allows me to plan what I want to do.
I tend to set goals for the new year based on what I decide I want to do differently. This pushes me forward to start the year off on the right foot.
This year my primary goal is to find more time for myself. My job is so tiring, I need to be able to have some downtime, so I don’t get burnt out.
Time for myself includes writing, working out, reading and vegging out while watching tv. I do not have to do all of these, but I want to do some each day.
New Year: Setting a routine
This means I need to find a routine I can stick to that gives me time after work to do these tasks. I have not officially made that schedule yet. But I think it will involve spending an hour after dinner and before bed to do this.
Setting some goals for yourself is good. It allows reflection which can tell you what you want to change. Life can become overwhelming especially when you have a brain injury. Becoming a bit more organized will aid in this.
The classic saying is ‘New year, new you.’ Try to learn something new or relearn something you used to know before your injury. The new time can allow you to live your best life.
