Tips to help reach your 2021 goals
Rather than following mainstream trends about resolutions, your intentions should include self-awareness, so do what is best suited for you. Focus on the overall outcome.
RAPID CITY, S.D. — January is a common time to make resolutions or set goals, but it’s not necessarily the most natural time – in winter months we seem to struggle with lower energy.
Angelena Plummer, a Life Coach & Therapist (CPC, LPC-MH, QMHP) at Positive Life Coach, says, “Beneficial times to make changes are actually during spring and fall when it lines up with nature, when nature is naturally in transition, however we can do this anytime. So know yourself and do what works for you.”
Plummer says, “So instead of focusing on each detail, which can sometimes be daunting and overwhelming, focus on the goal that you want at the end. You can visualize that, you can imagine what your life will be like when you have it.”
“So instead of saying I don’t want, fill in the blank on the other side of what you do want, so I do want to have this, this or this and that gives you mind something it can tangibly grasp and gravitate towards,” says Plummer.
Plummer adds, “When you make a goal and you tell yourself you are going to do that, and then later there’s another part of you that doesn’t feel like it, you just let down the part of you that you said you wanted this- and you wouldn’t do that to you best friend, you wouldn’t not show up for you best friend, so be your own best friend.”
