Don’t even think about new years resolutions, we just set ourselves up to fail!  Instead set intentions, lets embark on a journey of self-discovery and embrace our true selves in the year 2024. As we usher in a new year, let’s make it a commitment to prioritize authenticity, self-love, and overall well-being. Here are ten tips::

1. Gratitude for the Present moment: Begin each day by acknowledging and appreciating the present moment. Embrace the simple joys of life, whether it’s sipping a cup of tea, feeling the warmth of the sun, or relishing the company of loved ones. Cultivating gratitude sets the tone for a positive and authentic day.  (You’ve heard me say when I was numbing everything with booze I found appreciation of the present moment v tricky!)

2. Connect with Nature: Don’t underestimate  the healing power of nature. Take time to connect with the natural world around you. Whether it’s a walk in the park, a hike in the mountains,  the beauty of a sunrise, a stroll by the sea (my fave) nature has a remarkable ability to ground us and remind us of our true essence.

3. Mindful Living: Practice mindfulness in your daily activities. Whether it’s eating, working, or even cleaning, bring your full attention to the task at hand. Mindful living fosters a deeper connection with oneself and the world, allowing you to experience life more fully.

4. Self-Compassion: Treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding that you would offer a dear friend. Embrace imperfections and let go of self-judgment.  We are all a work in progress – imperfectly natural!

5. Declutter Your Life: Simplify your surroundings and declutter both physically and mentally. Let go of possessions, relationships, or thought patterns that no longer serve your authentic self. Creating space in your life allows room for growth and new possibilities.

6. Nurture Your Body: Prioritize your physical well-being with nourishing food, regular exercise, and adequate sleep. We really do need mind, body, and spirit approach.

7. Authentic Connections: Surround yourself with people who uplift and support your true self. Foster authentic connections that allow you to be vulnerable and genuine.  A supportive community enhances overall well-being. (Join us in The Sober Club)

8. Creative Expression: Engage in activities that allow for creative expression. Whether it’s writing, painting, dancing, or playing music, expressing yourself creatively is a powerful way to connect with your innermost thoughts and feelings.

9. Mind-Body Practices: Explore mind-body practices such as meditation, yoga, or tai chi. These practices not only promote physical health but also cultivate a sense of inner calm and self-awareness,

10. Embrace Change: Embrace the inevitability of change as a constant in life. See change as an opportunity for growth rather than a source of fear. By embracing change, we open ourselves up to new experiences and possibilities.

As we step into 2024, lets focus on a  a year of authenticity, self-love, and holistic well-being. By embracing who we really are, we pave the way for a happy, healthy, and fulfilling new year.
