2020 has just started, and I’m determined to make this my best year yet. I want to look back at this year, knowing that I did my absolute best to make the most of it.

They say if you want to see results, you need to commit to doing things differently. It’s so important to check, evaluate your habits, and see what’s holding you back from living the life you’ve always desired. In today’s blog post, I’ll be sharing the 5 habits I’m keeping for a successful year 2020.

Feeding My Mind

I’ve always loved to read. I was one of those kids that were always buried under a book. And then life happened, and suddenly reading was no longer a priority.

One of my recurring New Year’s Resolution has been reading, but by month 4, I always seem to fall off the wagon. This year I’m determined to read a minimum of 12 books, once again, but this time I have a strategy. My husband has volunteered to be my reading buddy, and we’ll be holding each other accountable. Things are going exceptionally well so far. I’m already on my third book for the year, and my buddy is also reading his third book.

Self awareness

I’ve been wanting to join a yoga class for as long as I can remember, but for some reason, it’s never happened. I’ve been on a spiritual journey, and yoga has always been an essential missing part of that journey! 

Your girl has finally found the perfect yoga class with the most amazing yoga instructor. I attended my first class last week Saturday, and I walked out of there feeling as light as a feather. I’m thrilled about this new journey.

Physical Health

I love to work out, but I’ve never been consistent. I would make excuses about being too busy to go exercise, and the next thing, a month would go by without me having seen the inside of a gym. Consistency is essential if you want to live a healthy lifestyle, and I knew that I had to change my ways if I want to see results. So in November last year, I signed up with a personal trainer, and I think that’s the best choice I could have made for my body. I have so much energy, and I feel so good about myself.

I know that hiring a personal trainer is a costly exercise, but finding a gym buddy is a good alternative. It helps to have someone to cheer you on and hold you accountable.

Reduce My Screen Time

Believe it or not, I’m still battling with my screen time. I’ve made progress in the past year, but I still need to do a lot of work in this area.

Pushing Through Fear

I’m not sure whether this qualifies as a habit, but this is my motto for the year—pushing through fear. We’re all human, we all have fears, but we must push through the fear. This year I’m saying YES to things that scare me. 

If you want to make the most of 2020, you might need to adopt new habits. You can’t keep doing the same things and expect different results. What are you doing differently this year?
