2023 is finally here! Are you ready for the new year? If not then we have 7 ways to prepare you for the next 12 months. Sometimes it can be difficult to get motivated after all the holidays and festive cheer. But getting excited for 2023 will motivate you to achieve your year-long goals. Here’s how you can stick to your new year’s resolution and stay productive.

1.      2023 New Year’s Resolutions

Are you someone who makes new year’s resolutions but is not sure how to stick to them? The first mistake is trying to reach too many goals at once. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself with too many tasks.

The best thing to do is make one new year’s resolution that’s easy to manage and to reach. For example, if your goal is to lose a specific amount of weight in three months then create an exercise routine that’s achievable. Additionally, you can find exercise instructors on YouTube that will provide various routines. You can also use a diet plan app to prepare meals and track your calories.

No matter what your new year’s resolution is, create a plan, start off small, and work at it every day until you achieve your goal.

2.      2023 Cleaning Schedules

One thing about life that’s difficult to stay on top of is keeping your home clean. When you’ve had a long day at work the last activity you want to do is clean. But if you create a chore schedule to follow it will be easier to keep your home clean. Everyone will be assigned a room that they must keep clean.

Everyone can help out with bigger cleaning projects like keeping the kitchen clean after eating dinner. You should also have a 10-minute tidy-up session just before bed. Clean off surfaces with your Zoflora wipes, take dishes to the kitchen and straighten cushions.

A cluttered environment can increase stress and anxiety. So it’s important that you keep your house tidy. Tidying up every evening will prevent big messes from piling up.

3.      2023 Motivational Goals

As mentioned before, it can be difficult to stay motivated throughout the year especially if you’re dealing with financial, family or work stress. Depression is also one of the leading causes of feeling unmotivated.

One of the ways people push themselves through difficult situations is if they surround themselves with positive people and someone who can mentor them. Furthermore, when you’re around goal-orientated people, you’ll also feel the need to be a better person.

Another way to stay motivated is if you keep active. Any form of fun exercise can elevate your mood such as dancing, skating, or even cycling. It will also boost your energy levels which helps to keep you motivated.

4.      2023 Work Productivity

Many factors can distract you from being productive at the office such as:

  • Work colleagues talking to you all the time
  • Emails piling up
  • Your work telephone that won’t stop ringing
  • Paperwork that takes too long to finish
  • Attending meetings

In 2023 your main goal should be to find more ways to increase your productivity at work so you can minimize stress and stay ahead of your deadlines. Consider using apps to help you stay organized. Use digital checklists and collaboration tools. You should also do the most tedious tasks or the most important projects in the mornings and finish smaller tasks throughout the day.

Additionally, consider using the time-blocking technique. Divide your tasks into manageable segments and complete them based on the time you’ve set for each segment.

5.      Building Relationships

Let 2023 be the year where you practice forgiveness and build strong relationships with your friends and family. The pandemic has taught many people that you never know how much time you have with anyone. Holding grudges can stop you from making amends with the people around you and it can also make you a bitter person.

Learn to accept that not everyone is perfect and that you’re going to clash with some of the people around you. But it’s important to build strong bonds with your loved ones so that you’re always surrounded by the people you care about and love you in return.  

6.       Reading Goals

Not many people don’t enjoy reading books anymore. But that shouldn’t suggest that you have to read long novels you’re not interested in. Reading magazines, the newspaper or even articles on your phone is an excellent way to learn about the world around you.

Reading can also help build your vocabulary so that you can communicate better at work or with your friends and family. Furthermore, it’s been proven that reading can increase connections in the brain that improves memory and concentration. So in 2023, make reading part of your goal so you can learn more about your world.

7.      Learning Something New in 2023

Being stagnant in life will make you feel bored and unsatisfied. But if you continue to learn you may release dopamine in your brain which is a feel-good chemical that keeps you motivated. No matter what it is, make it one of your goals to learn something in 2023 whether it’s gardening, baking, sewing, or painting.

Learning something new every day will make you a wiser and more interesting person to talk to when you meet someone new.
