Trying to improve yourself is a worthwhile but tough endeavour. To make things easier, pick a focus for each month and set goals to stay on track.

If one resolution for the whole year seems like small potatoes, try breaking up the year with 12 smaller goals. If you need some inspiration, HOLSTEE’s Mindful Living Calendar sets these themes:

  • January — Intention
  • February — Friendship
  • March — Flow
  • April — Nourishment
  • May — Simplicity
  • June — Play
  • July — Curiosity
  • August — Rebellion
  • September — Peace
  • October — Vulnerability
  • November — Gratitude
  • December — Roots

Of course, you don’t have to follow these goals. Think of two or three things that you want to improve upon and use them for the next few months. Create checkpoints throughout the month to help yourself stay focused. You may want to only pick goals for the next upcoming 2-3 months because your goals or areas for improvement will probably shift depending on what happens in your life this year.
