1. To Be More Positive
It’s sounds simple, pleasant, and easy enough, but setting an arbitrary resolution to be “better” at something is too vague to yield actual results. “Emotions and responsiveness to life can vary from day to day, so what’s more positive one day could be totally different the next,” says Amber Hurdle, certified life coach who works with female entrepreneurs. “Instead, resolve to choose gratitude and happiness daily, focusing specifically on replacing negative habits and thoughts with positive ones.” Try reading motivational, personal, or professional development books, spiritual novels, listen to inspiring podcasts, or watch uplifting videos online to work your way out of a negative head space.
