New Year’s Resolution: 10 Ways You Can Create A Better Life in 2021

Ways You Can Create Better Life 2021

On any given day, you will have a hundred reasons for not doing what you should. But it’s a choice. You can choose to take comfort in properly laid out reasons and justifications and remain exactly where you are in life. Or you can choose just one reason that works for you and go ahead and do it anyways despite all setbacks. Demand action from yourself. Look at the possibilities, find cracks in your excuses and reasons and exploit them to get things done and create your best life.

4. Step outside your comfort zone.

I know what the comfort zone feels like. I have been there for too long. But that’s not where you will find progress, self development, happiness or satisfaction. The only things you will find your comfort zone are shame, guilt, resentment and frustration if you stay there long enough. Success lies outside your comfort zone. Get up and step out. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. It will allow you to understand what is holding you back and empower you to expand your life in 2021.

5. Learn to love yourself

How do you treat yourself? Are you as kind and compassionate with yourself when you fail as you would be with a dear friend? Do you criticize yourself more than you should? Is the negative self talk getting louder and louder? Are there any emotional barriers? How you treat yourself in life can determine how far you go. If you are constantly beating yourself up, you can’t expect yourself to unlock the greatness you have inside. Tell yourself you can. Tell yourself you must. Tell yourself you will. Negativity is a cancer of the soul.

Be mindful about what you tell yourself. Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses. This will enable you to tap into your inner strength and empower you to become greater than you could ever imagine. And your new year’s resolution will help you have the determination to move in the right direction.

6. Nurture your relationships

Staying focused on your life goals for 2021 is crucial but without meaningful relationships anything you achieve will feel hollow. Remember that your objective is to create a better and more fulfilling life for yourself. And that can never happen without caring relationships with your family, friends and even coworkers. Let this new year be a wake-up call for you to reconnect with people you have unwillingly moved away from and rebuild relationships that give your life meaning. This means spending more time with your family, making time for your romantic partner despite deadlines at work, catching up with old friends and reaching out and checking in with your coworkers and business partners. This is the perfect time to nourish and nurture relationships that will not only keep you motivated and grounded, but also provide you the emotional and moral support you need.

7. Don’t be afraid of criticism

It takes a lot of strength to let yourself be criticized and judged by others. We take a great deal of effort to avoid judgment as it affects us on a profoundly personal level. Yet, no matter how hard you try people will judge you. Restraining yourself or keeping your options limited doesn’t protect you from judgment. It only limits your options for living a happier life. When you are unafraid to be judged and criticized, you can live more boldly and confidently without any restrictions.

8. Do what makes you happy

Having fun is crucial to living a better and happier life in 2021. You’ve been through a lot this year. Unless you learn to enjoy your life, anything you do will seem meaningless and exhausting. Routine mundane life can drain your energy and leave you feeling the walking dead, especially since you’ve been in quarantine and maintaining social distancing for so long.  Living joyfully not only helps in developing a positive mindset but also gives you the energy to face adversity and overcome obstacles. Ask yourself what can you do in 2021 to enjoy your life more? It doesn’t have to be something grand or expensive. It can be something as simple as playing with your dog more often or something exciting like taking a solo trip. It depends on your definition of fun.
