New Year, Same You

Did you know that only 8% of adults achieve their goals? One of the main reasons is that we often make a goal without thinking about how to get there. Here are some tools, articles, and ideas that you may find helpful in getting your new year started on the right foot, whether you made new year’s resolutions or not.

Work Life “Balance”

  • Time blocking: This is helpful if you want to set better boundaries between work and life, or make time to exercise, or want to set a better morning routine – the key here is “Schedule it in!”
    • Tip from Social for Good’s Marketing Director, Regina: “Every night before I go to bed, I plan out my next day and put it all on the calendar, from what to make for breakfast, to which project I will focus on tomorrow, to when I’m taking a break. That way, when I wake up, I know exactly what I’m going to do and feel much more in control!”
    • We know this doesn’t work for everyone, but find something that works for you and stick with it.
  • Social media tools:
    • IG take-a-break function: If spending less time on social media is one of your resolutions, here’s a new feature from IG. Don’t worry, your business will not suffer – see our blog.
    • Social media scheduling tool: Later or our own new app! Going back to the time-blocking method, schedule in time to work on social media, whether it is engagement, creating graphics + copy, or actually scheduling your posts. Once you’re done with that time block, STOP SCROLLING. Trust me, you’ll actually post more and spend less time!
    • Another option is to have someone else manage your social media (*hint hint: we’re here to help!).

Get Healthy

If you’re looking to exercise more, here are some IG accounts to follow. Remember, be specific, for example, “I want to exercise twice a week”:

Tip from our COO, Aubrey, who’s a self-proclaimed fitness junkie: “It generally takes anywhere from 3-6 weeks for a new habit to stick, so don’t give up! If you miss some days in a row (or more realistically, weeks; we’ve all been there), don’t think of it as starting over — think of it as picking up where you left off. Getting back at it whenever you’re able is the ticket.”

What new year’s resolutions did we miss? What are you focusing on this year?
