Resist the resolutions: 5 simple ways to reset and rejuvenate

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

If you are  looking for alternative approaches to the traditional New Year's resolutions, here are five simple ways to reset and rejuvenate without the pressure of strict goals:

1. Reflect and Release:

Instead of setting specific resolutions, take some time to reflect on the past year. Identify what worked well, what didn't, and what you learned. Write down any lingering thoughts or regrets you might have, and then throw them away. This can be a symbolic way of letting go and starting fresh. Consider what you want to continue and what you may need to take off your plate. Just because you did it last year doesn't mean you need to carry it into next year. Release the things weighing you down.

2. Prayerful Moments:

Incorporate prayer into your daily routine. Dedicate a few minutes each day to spend some time communicating with God. Journal, Read your Bible, Lift up those sweet prayers, or simply just be quiet in His presence. You can come as you are. There are no expectations, no specific goals you have to meet. Just be and invite Him to be with you.

"Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays." - Søren Kierkegaard

3. Digital Detox:

Consider taking a break from excessive screen time and social media. We are constantly bombarded with media. It tugs at our attention 24/7! Unplugging for a designated period, whether it's a day or a weekend, can help you recharge mentally and emotionally. Use this time to engage in activities you enjoy, connect with loved ones face-to-face, or simply enjoy the simplicity of the offline world.

4. Simplify your Sanctuary:

I'm sure you've heard the quote before, "Your home is your sanctuary." But how many of us actually live this way? Often our homes become a dumping ground for the overflow of the lives that we lead. Perhaps it’s time to take back our living space.  Transform them back into a place of comfort, peace, and personal refuge.  I encourage you to invest the time and effort into making small changes to bring simplicity and function back to your home.

5. Set Intentions:

Instead of thinking about what you want to do, ask yourself who do I want to be? Think about the qualities or values you want to incorporate into your life rather than specific achievements. This allows for flexibility and personal growth without the fear of failing to meet specific resolutions.

Above all be kind to yourself
