What Are Realistic New Year’s Solutions for You?
Making New Year goals should always be a personal decision. Don’t choose to work towards goals that don’t support your sober living needs. They should always focus on the things you need to work on to achieve and maintain your sobriety. Consider a few realistic New Year’s resolutions that may help you, such as:
- Resolve to stay sober by getting treatment at a women’s outpatient treatment program, going to meetings, and reaching out for help when you need it.
- Make a decision to work on your mental health with a professional so you can control your anxiety and depression more effectively.
- If you’re in recovery, resolve to eat nutrient-dense food every day. Get exercise of some type (20 minutes a day) every day.
- Resolve to communicate more openly when you are struggling. That may be to your therapist if you do not have someone local to help you.
- Make yourself a priority. This New Year’s resolution is a hard one, but it is also one of the most important. Make a list of small things you can do for yourself every day to make yourself a priority over anyone or anything else.
Realistic New Year’s resolutions should be specific. If they are more significant goals, break them down into pieces and steps. Make sure you feel good about yourself every time you achieve one of these steps. You also want to ensure your goals are measurable and have a set date of when you’ll achieve them. They may be things you want to work on every day or something to accomplish by a specific date. Making them very clear lie this ensures your New Year goals are ones you can be held accountable for achieving.
Don’t Overpromise in Your New Year Goals
One of the most common mistakes you can make is overpromising or trying to do too much with your goals. You are still in recovery (or even just starting the path of sober living). It would be best if you were realistic about how much you can achieve and how to do it. You can’t just make your life perfect. It takes time and a lot of work to get to this point. The good news is that all of the hard work that goes into achieving a sober lifestyle is well worth it and will pay off for you.
