Have you ever made a deal with yourself about making changes in your life, only to put it off at the last minute? Of course, you have! We are all guilty of doing it at some point in our lives. But with a new year comes the chance to make some huge changes to improve your life. Here’s how you can make the most of this opportunity and finally do everything you’ve been putting off by making it a priority.
Keeping prescriptions up to date
Is your prescription medication all in order, and are you still taking what you should be? Do you need to make an appointment to reevaluate your prescription needs? Be sure to schedule it and avoid any potential problems later in the year.
And if you wear glasses, when was the last time you had an eye test or checked whether your prescription glasses are still what you need for your eyes? If it’s been a few years since you last went, get an appointment and look at some new ones. Don’t forget to consider what prescription sunglasses you’d like for the spring and summer months too!
Giving up cigarettes is legitimately one of the most difficult things a person can do. But if you’ve been promising yourself, you’ll actually do it and keep putting it off. Maybe it’s time to take action and make this goal a reality by making it a priority.
Focus on some positives to help keep you away from buying your next pack of cigarettes – you’ll be saving money, maintaining good health, and making a huge change in your lifestyle for the better.
Going to the doctor
Do you have a nagging injury that you keep putting off getting checked? Or maybe you’re due for an annual check-up but keep avoiding it? Either way, make the time to take that trip to the doctor and ensure everything is in working order. Chances are you’re absolutely fine, but it’s always worth going to finally get that confirmation from your doctor.
Being more physically active
We’re all guilty of waking up, sitting at our desks, then going home and spending the evening in front of our devices, binge-watching our favorite shows. And why not? That’s what makes life fun, right?
However, you must find time between work and rest, including exercise and light cardio. How many times have you promised that you’ll start exercising more often, only to return to your comfortable routine? Is it time to stop making excuses and put your goals into an exercise plan? Yes!
Doing something on your bucket list.
Make 2023 memorable by finally doing what you’ve always wanted but have been too scared to do. Get on a stage and belt out a tune. Sign up for an open mic and try out that comedy routine. Write that book. Join that aerobics class. Travel the world and make new friends.
Whatever you truly want to do, make it a priority, get it ticked off your bucket list, and set the new year off on the right foot. If you can overcome your worries and doubt, 2023 will be a limitless year for you!
