How can you do better this year than last? That’s a big question that should be answered with a nice dose of reality.
However, take a look over the last few years. Maybe you have improved along the way and never even noticed. If you’re trying to better yourself this year, setting clear goals can help you to improve your life. Here are a few simple goals that could help you better yourself in 2023:
1. Learn more
Learning more is one way to better yourself this year. From buying used books that can help educate you on important topics to taking online courses in areas you want to improve in, learning a new skill or educating yourself can do a lot for you.
Not only can it help you to further your career, but it also can be a great use of your brain. Make 2023 the year that you learn more and see how much better it makes you feel.
2. Become more active
There’s something about an active lifestyle that can lead you to better things in life. From how exercise improves your brain health to how it helps you manage your weight, there are many reasons why you should make 2023 the year that you become more active.
Start small with daily walks and work your way up to more intensive workouts. Don’t push your body more than you should, but make this year the year you take care of your physical health by gaining the benefits of movement.
3. Make more money
If you have big goals for your future but don’t have enough money to make them possible, it might be time to figure out how to make more cash. From side hustles to a new job, making more money can do a lot for your financial stability, which can help you better yourself in more ways than one.
From allowing you to make big moves like buying a home to helping you pay off debt, there are many reasons to create a financially sound lifestyle this year.
4. Learn how to eat for your body
We all have specific nutritional needs, so if you want to eat well and feel your best, consider learning what foods are good for you and what foods you should avoid. Maybe you may love beans and lentils, but they cause inflammation in your body. Or maybe you’ve recently noticed that you have a dairy intolerance. The goal of healthy eating is learning how to eat for your body. A nutritionist can help you determine the best foods for your specific dietary needs.
5. Spend time with good people
The people you spend your time with have a significant impact on how you live your life. If you’re not loving your circle or feel like your friends aren’t bringing much value into your life, you may need to discover the right people for you.
Look for people who share similar interests or have the ambition you’re striving for. If you’re looking to improve your life in more ways than one this year, you should surround yourself with people who positively impact your life and make you feel good.
6. Be mindful of your digital consumption
The digital world is so easy to get sucked into and can have a detrimental effect on our mental health. So being aware of how you consume digital information can be a great way to better yourself in 2023 and beyond.
What does this mean? Being mindful of how you use social media (are you spending a lot of time doom scrolling the news?) , restricting your social media use and spending less time looking at screens in general.
7. Consume less and save the planet
Although sustainabilty is the big buzzword these days, if you want to do your bit for the environment, the best method is to simply consume less. Whether that is buying less plastic gizmos, not buying pre-packaged junk food or fixing your broken items to make them last longer.
This isn’t just great for the planet. It can also save you money and recalibrate your relationship with stuff. A great way to better yourself and the planet this year…
