Just like I believe you should start a new day with positive thoughts, affirmations and practicing gratitude to build up positive energy, I believe in starting a New Year the same way which is why I’ve put together a collection of encouraging New Year’s Resolution Quotes. Perhaps a number of them will resonate with you or, perhaps, there might just be one. Whichever message echoes the most, may it form part of your mantra to live the New Year with sight of your goals, with self-acceptance and an open mind.
Although having New Year resolution quotes and mantras to guide us through a new year are a good reminder and way to initially get motivated, they’ll start to lose their effect if you haven’t addressed certain parts of your wellbeing and if you’re unsure how to commit to a resolution past the first few days of January. You can find tips on sticking to a resolution here.
If you’ve been experiencing high levels of anxiety try removing those things in your life that make it worse. If you’ve come close to burnout this year, there might be parts of your lifestyle you can change in order to reach this year’s goals and really live the quote that resonates. This post on burnout might help. If negative self-talk has been ruling your world, no single New Year’s resolution quote is going to make you feel better in the long term. Understand how to deal with negative self-talk first and then live your mantra.
Whichever New Year’s resolution quote you love, make sure you put it everywhere; on the toilet door, in your office, on the fridge, in your car, because the reminder is an important part of remembering your purpose.
