Giving your work or academic routines a creative twist depends on you.
With the start of the new year comes resolutions and the desire to start from zero. For many, however, getting back to a routine always poses a challenge to positive thinking. The ISES Institute offers a list of tips to keep your resolutions and be successful in your new goals.
- Be aware of your emotions: Take on your positive and negative emotions with the same enthusiasm. Take advantage of negative emotions to make change.
- Focus on the positive: Think of things that make you happy, they will bring you happiness and a sense of personal satisfaction.
- Be grateful: Make gratitude a necessary part of your everyday life. Apply it with your coworkers, friends and family.
- Keep your resolutions: According to a study from the University of Scranton, the majority of people that make new year’s resolutions give up on them up to four months after they began them. Sticking with your goals is a way of challenging yourself and transforming your daily life.
