New Year’s is all about goals. You might have a big New Year’s resolution, or you might want to make faster progress toward your existing goals. These ten practical tips lay a strong foundation for getting where you want to be, and MobiScribe makes it easy.
Set yourself up for small victories.
You have big dreams, so why start with small goals? Your brain loves small wins almost as much as it loves big wins. When you reach a goal, even a little one, you get a rush of endorphins that train your brain to go for gold. Take some time to write down your goals, start with the stuff you know you can accomplish short-term, and celebrate your small victories.
Get into a routine.
Routines are another way to train your brain, and the benefits are endless. Daily routines clear the way for better sleep, less stress, and better overall health. When it comes to productivity, weekly routines keep your momentum rolling, in part by making sure you get a break. Monthly routines are like a self-check-in, a moment for reflection, and possible redirection. Altogether, routines are a powerhouse of achievement for 2022 go-getters.
We’ve created a few templates to help you get into a positive and achievable routine in 2022! Start with your 2022 yearly goals and use our templates to break them down by month and week.
Save the planet.
Okay, maybe not by yourself, but doing your part doesn’t hurt. A 2018 estimate showed almost five pounds of waste produced per day per person. That’s nearly a ton of garbage you can prevent every year by swapping your disposable and one-time-use materials (notebooks, post-its, planners) for reusable tools like the MobiScribe Origin!
No matter what kind of self-care and wellbeing promotion you subscribe to, one of the key pillars is practicing gratitude! Start by writing Positive psychology experts suggest writing down something you’re grateful for at the end of the day to reduce stress and burnout and to improve:
- Emotional regulation
- And resilience
Use our MobiScribe gratitude template to jot down one thing you are grateful for each night. Keep the MobiScribe by your bed, and it will be easy to accomplish this daily in 2022.
Drink more water.
This one is a gimme. Your body thrives on water. You’d be surprised how much better you feel and how much more energy you have when you set a little reminder to drink water throughout the day. It’s not just that 60% of your body is water; it’s also that your body requires water to do all the things you need it to do. Things like:
- Lubricating joints
- Hydrating sinuses and eyes
- Delivering oxygen to places
- Growing beautiful hair, skin, and nails
- Cushioning your brain and spinal cord
- Regulating your temperature
- Digesting things
- Removing waste
- Regulating blood pressure
- Keeping airways open
- Delivering nutrients
- Keeping your kidneys working
- Enhancing your athletic performance
- Managing your weight
- Preventing illness
- Accelerating recovery
Pay it forward.
Just like doing your part for the planet, a random act of kindness benefits you as well as the people around you. Next time you’re on the receiving end of some good luck or goodwill, try paying it forward. You might just experience:
- A little boost in confidence
- Increased feelings of control
- A dash of optimism
Start the day off right.
What you do in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. You can eat a protein-rich breakfast to give you energy, make your bed to put a little endorphin-sponsored pep in your step, and start a yoga and meditation routine to improve your focus and mental wellbeing.
Keep a journal.
If you’ve never kept a journal, it might seem a little useless at first, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The simple act of writing down your thoughts improves your writing and communication skills. Getting them on paper (AKA the MobiScribe) helps clarify and reduces stress and anxiety. Seeing yourself write them strengthens your memory. Journaling has even shown benefits related to depression and motivation. All of these advantages work together to accelerate goal achievement. The MobiScribe makes is easy to journal, as your unlimited digital notebook, it will never run out of space for your thoughts.
Write down your goals, big and small.
Speaking of writing things down to remember them, write down your goals! Writing things by hand engages complex sensory functions that make your brain pay attention. It processes the information more carefully, helping you to remember it later. By writing down your goals, you embed them at the front of your mind, which makes your everyday decisions and activities more goal-oriented.
