Happy New Years everyone! I hope you all had a splendid holiday and are excited to for 2018. I wanted to share 4 little rituals that will get you into the right mindset. Use them to get inspired, refreshed, and ready for 2018!
Write a Letter to Your Future Self
Future Me is an online service that allows you to write a letter to your future self that will be emailed to you in a year. It is the perfect time to look back at all the amazing memories and accomplishments from last year, and set goals for this year.
Make a Ten Things Left – Ten Things Invited List
Get two pieces of paper out. On one, write ten things you want to leave in 2017. It could be anything, such as a habit, person, or negative thought. On the other paper, write ten things you want to invite into your life in 2018. This is also another amazing way to reflect. Burn the first list and plant the second one.
Level Out Your Consume-Create Ratio
We are constantly consuming. We are eating, watching, listening, or absorbing information, especially as students. Take some time over the break to level out your consume-create ratio. The opportunities to create are endless, such as cooking, writing, playing music, or potting a plant.
Do a Technology Detox
The holidays are a great time to spend time with friends and family, without the constant pressure of outstanding deadlines and assignments. Be more present by doing a technology detox. Spend 24-hours without your phone and social media and spend it with the people who mean the most to you.
