Balance Your Life in 2011

December 31, 2010 in Finances,Health,Life,Personal Growth,Spiritual

Happy New Year!  Can you believe 2010 is just about over?  The start of the New Year is a great time to implement change and personal growth by setting goals that you want to achieve throughout the upcoming year. Take a moment to take the Is Your Life In Balance Assessment.  This is a great tool to find out what areas of your life need improving.  Many people make resolutions on Jan 1st, only to break them on Jan 3rd….so be careful about making general “resolutions”.  My goal for you is to set goals that:
a) can contribute greatly toward helping you live the life you desire and
b) are attainable without any unrealistic expectations

Decide to make these changes in 2011 for a happy new year:

1. Health improvements. When your body thrives, you have more energy, enthusiasm, and vitality to do everything you want to do. Focus on setting goals for the specific actions that will provide the results you’d like to see.

* For example, rather than stating that you want to lose 25 pounds next year, try to find achievable goals that will help you lose weight. Make a plan to enroll in a yoga class, try three new types of aerobics exercises, or join a walking group.
* Resolve to bring new experiences into your life. Set goals about new foods that you want to try, eating 3 more vegetable servings each day, or even getting more sleep!
* These goals are more fun to reach, but they’ll contribute to the same end result.

2. Financial improvements. Following the same advice as above, try to avoid setting unrealistic resolutions like “pay off all my debt next year” or “Put $10,000 away in savings.” Instead, choose goals for specific actions that will get you where you want to be financially.

* For example, you may resolve to save all of your spare change and deposit it into your savings account every month.
* Maybe you’d like to pick up 3 extra hours at work each week and dedicate those earned funds to your savings account or debt repayment.
* Or make a list of specific money-saving actions like the above that you’d like to incorporate into your daily life and add a new action to your routine each week. By the end of the year, you’ll be an automatic money-saving machine!

3. Spirituality. Spiritual goals can absolutely lead to a sense of peace and fulfillment. Deepening your relationship with God can only lead to living a life of positivity.
* Set a goal to attend church on a more consistent basis.
* Identify a class to take at a local church about a subject you want to learn more about….how to pray, faith, healing, etc.
* Identify what time during your day you can set aside for prayer.
* Read a book on a spiritual subject of interest to you.

4. Personal Growth and Development. Personal Growth goals can benefit you in so many different ways because it leads to personal enrichment and development. What interests you?  Elect to take a course or seminar on a topic that interests you, such as photography, healthy eating, finding your purpose, or entrepreneurship.

* Set goals to try new things, experience new places, challenge your comfort zone, and learn about yourself all at the same time.
* Challenge yourself to read ten non-fiction books about subjects that interest you.
* Create a goal to try a new healthy recipe for your family at least once a month.

The start of the New Year is a great time to find new ways to challenge yourself.

Above all else, choose New Year’s resolution goals that actually interest you and that are achievable for you. Resolve to do things that will be enjoyable, while also improving your life as a whole.

Again, have  a Happy New Year!!  Wishing you all the success, health and abundance in 2011!
Your Balance Coach,
