How to make the most out of your life for the rest of 2020?We’re in June...and don’t you think this has been the longest, but shortest year ever? We’re almost halfway through, and most of the first half of the month has been taken up by COVID-19 and staying within our four walls. I think it’s because 2020 was the turn of a new decade - not just a new year, but an entire new blank slate, it felt that everyone at the end of 2019 was saying: right, this year is MY YEAR. Everyone bought brand new yearly planners and had all these grand ideas about how their lives were going to be better, more organised, more fulfilled. Then the virus came along and spoiled all our fun. Like excuse me - rude? Unfortunately, it ruined a lot of people's big plans including putting a stop to travel, career and personal goals. I’ve seen many people across social media very down in the dumps, wondering if it’s worth even trying to do anything else this year. The answer is yes, of course it’s worth it! Whilst we have ‘lost’ the first part of the year to COVID-19, there is still another half left. It may be that you need to wait a little longer to take your trip, or move to the next step of your career, but there are plenty of ways you can make the best of the time we have left. Think of the year like a glass - do you want to be sad that half the year is gone? Or why not make a choice and be happy that you have six months remaining, to fill however you wish?
#1 Make Small ChangesA problem with the majority of New Year’s resolutions is that they’re far too ambitious and we give ourselves too many. As much as you’d like to, you may not be able to achieve what you wanted to by the end of 2020, and that’s okay. In fact, you may end up feeling quite relieved that you don’t have to meet the daunting targets you had set for yourself. Instead, focus on smaller, achievable changes. You’ll have a far better chance of succeeding, and they’ll soon add up to contribute to bigger life changes. For example - you want to completely overhaul your career choice? That’s huge - where do you start? With smaller changes! Start by scheduling one networking session per week to start putting the feels out.
