Jump-Start Your Goals in 2016

Last Update: December 30, 2015

Jumpstart your goals in 2016!

What a common talk (or reading for that matter) everywhere, anywhere as we close one year and open the next one. But how well do we follow our goals? Or do they just remain dreams that need to be awakened year after year after year?

If you count the chapters of your life in terms of new years, 2015 is closing and it's about time to look back and reflect on what we have or have not accomplished. Then open the new year with health-related resolutions.

Oh, 'Eat healthier and be in good shape!' This is quite a struggle for many!



Or 'No more fatty foods but get more exercise!' But it is real hard!


A lot of challenges have come our way that hindered us from reaching our goals for the year. There were set backs that prevented us from living our lives to the fullest much more from achieving our goals.

Make 2016 your healthiest year ever! This is not just all about physical health. Consider our whole being in the process of making resolutions for the coming year and the years to come! It's all about maintaining a healthy living. I believe we have the power to shape it!


Tip #1 Maintain a healthy body.

Health is indeed wealth! For some it is seeing a smaller number on the weighing scale. For others, it is necessary to go for the yearly medical check-up. While others it is simply maintaining what they have already achieved.

We gotta do what we have to do to maintain a healthy physique. Eat nutritious foods and exercise. While it varies from person to person, research, know, and practice the best approach that your body responds to. Investigate and explore your health options. Do what is best for you!


Tip #2 Maintain a healthy emotion.

We all go through hardships, fatigue, stress, pains, mood swings, fears ~all these affect our emotions. These are problems that cause us to fail.

I am not an expert. But based on my experiences, switching perspectives can make a big difference in the way we live. I look at problems as challenges that I can overcome, which help me develop the will power to go beyond my circumstances and control my emotions. It's a skill that can be acquired by constantly reminding ourselves that we can do it!

The best weapon I ever have is prayer. My faith dictates that God is my help in times of trouble; He is my refuge in times of storms! He is greater than any of my problems and He is the Mighty Being who enables me to overcome every challenges that come my way!

If others can do it, then I can do it! You can do it; together we can do it!


Tip #3 Maintain a healthy mind.

Our mental well-being impacts the quality of our living. It affects relationships and emotions.


De-stressing is extremely beneficial to maintaining good mental health. Even the Bible encourages us to meditate day and night.

Get enough sleep. I have observed that I am more effective in anything that I do when I am not sleepy. I would say that sleep can impact our ability to work well. Some experts say that lack of sleep can even increase the risk for Alzheimer's disease or other brain issues.

Develop hobbies or creative activities that you can learn and have fun with. I love arts and crafts. That's what I do. As a teacher, I create arts, crafts, and develop math games that I can use in the classroom. This way, I am already educating myself while creating activities that will educate my students in math.



You have survived 2015. Make 2016 a new beginning for the best life ever!

Jumpstart your goals in 2016 so that you can keep moving on with what you have already started here @ Wealthy Affiliate and make your dreams come true!

Take the WA power and reach for the top in 2016!


Blessings,

Thanks for your chime, Robert. I'm glad you will try. But I think you have to determine to do it. All it takes is start with the first step on one area of your life until it becomes a habit and you can go on with the next one. One day at a time can make it easier for you. Blessings ~Betcha

The hobby thing (developing a new one) ain't easy at all. But it's totally worth it. Thanks.
Reply
betcha Premium
You're very welcome, Frantz. You don't have to develop another hobby if it's difficult for you. You can simply continue what you are already doing. But finding a new one is totally worth it as it brings a new dimension in our lives. As for me, WA has become my new hobby aside from the arts and crafts I do. I think of it as one so that I will enjoy creating my business. And it's been great thus far. I pray that 2016 will be a great one for you. There so many things in store for you to enjoy especially here @ Wealthy Affiliate! Cheers!

Betcha, my fine friend, we must come from the same planet! This blog captures exactly what we should all be doing in 2016! All the health stuff about food and exercise is top dollar good sense and something that we all know, but so often choose to ignore at our peril. Less well understood is the need for mental and emotional stability and I must follow you to learn better strategies! I too was a teacher, so stress, over working and lack of sleep were part of the course! Have a fantastic New Year and remember at difficult times, you are shaping children's lives for the better and bringing to them as well the tools of hope and godliness. One day they will thank you and really mean it!

Oh yes, Herbie! I'm glad to have someone of the same mind! Everyone knows but it's just more difficult to put 'em into practice when bad habits have already become permanent in one's life. It takes a lot of discipline to do just that.
Thanks for your chimes. I sure will remember your words. This is the most stressful months in the classroom when we are preparing our students for the state test. I teach math and you could just imagine what admin expects from math teachers. And it's so irritating to be micromanaged which adds up to the stress we already have in preparing everyday. Anyway, so much for my rant! I'm glad WA keeps my sanity in place. Enjoy another fantastic year in your WA journey!

Thanks for your kind words, Nichole. Keep working on it. I, for one, can attest that healthy living is a great way to grow old gracefully. I praise God because at my age, I don't have any maintenance pills except for the vitamins I take everyday to supplement my body needs. Take care and have a fantastic year to enjoy!

Hi Abel, nice to see you again. I'm glad to have written some sort of a reminder. The first recipient of my writing is always myself. Whenever I want to be reminded of something, I put it into writing. Thanks for stressing that out. This is my kind of diary. And I have to tell myself that money is not everything. We all need a balanced lifestyle. But thanks to WA, we can have the money we want as well. Cheers to our success!

Hi Anthony, thanks for your chime. You will get there. All you need to do is practice, practice, and practice some more until it gets permanent. Search for writing tips. There are a lot in the internet. I have some @ They're not the best tips but good ones for a start. One thing I do before I write is pray for inspiration. You bet it comes at the right time!

Yes, to live well is to have all three. Body, mind and spirit. Lacking anyone of the three will be incomplete. [Liat]

I know, right. This has always been my goal since I was young because I was born sickly. As I grew up, at least I instilled it in my mind that I want to grow old gracefully with good health.
