New Years Resolution Ideas – Setting the Course for the Year Ahead
It’s time to take steps to set a purposeful plan for 2024 and to set some intentions for your best year ever. Rather than creating an overly ambitious list of tasks, we’re sharing ways to set intention that feel good and focus on our health, wellness, balance, and overall effectiveness of our work.
New Years Resolution Ideas – Key Tips That Promote Wellness
Cultivating gratitude is the gift that keeps on giving – it helps us and those we are thanking. Learn how to express gratitude within your organization through thank-you notes, emails, videos, and more. By prioritizing self-care, we ensure we can be fully present for others. Discover the importance of setting aside “me time” and finding ways to stay active and engaged away from the desk. Equally important is to set healthy boundaries. Explore the power of personal mantras and “go-to no” phrases to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

New Years Resolution Ideas – Quotes from the Episode
“I’m not big about setting huge resolutions that are hard to reach and that we end up beating ourselves up about for not reaching. I’m not about that at all. I’m about aspiration and intention. We wanna do our best, the best we can to do things that we know are already good for us.”
“If you can align more of what you’re good at and more of what you like doing in your work, the more you can do that, the less likely you’re gonna be burned out, and the more likely your work is going to light you up.”
“Expanding the gratitude is good for not only the people you’re thanking, but also for yourself.”
“If you’re not taking care of yourself, you’re not very good at taking care of other people.”
“Learning is fine on your own, but I am actually a fan of learning with other people. I think social learning is more fun, and I think it’s really important to building relationships and keeping us healthy as humans.”
