1. Be early.
It’s time you give a little more to yourself and to the people around you by doing this one simple thing: Be early.
Be early for school. Be early for work. Be early for all life’s adventures that have yet to come to you. I know it’s a hard thing for you to do, but sometimes, we just need a little push to get us through. Take it day by day, and see how much of a difference being early makes than you getting all sweaty, rushing through the rush hour traffic, cursing the traffic, and being late in the end.
I’m not going to lie to you; I’m a habitually late person. But I’ve had my fair share of being early and let me tell you, people aren’t going to be angry when you meet them. You get things done faster when you do it earlier. You get extra hugs from your loved ones with the punctuality.
And that feels a lot better than cursing at the rush hour traffic with your driver.
2. Be better than 2016 you.
That means you have to start now. Do little and big things that you think will help you be a better person, if not the best person. Do something that’ll make a change in the chain of negativity in your life, and become the positivity, the glowing light that attracts people, most especially, the you that attracts you.
Love yourself more this 2017. Others will follow suit.
3. Stop binge eating.
Okay, it’s time you cut down on those Cheetos and Piattos you’ve been hoarding in your kitchen. Stop eating when you’re bored, okay? It’ll go straight to your ass.
You have to discipline yourself to stop doing these little unnecessary things that hinder you from being a healthier version of yourself.
It’s alright to chow down every once in a while on one or two good occasions, but remember to balance it out with some little bits of exercise that’ll help maintain your health and body. Take care of your body and it’ll take care of you right back.
4. Spend more time with yourself.
Some people think alone time is a terrible thing, with anxiety building up in the great distance as they continuously go through their Twitter accounts in pvblic to see if someone in the vicinity can come hang out with them, and then just go back to scrolling through their phones when they actually do find someone.
Well listen up: Alone time is good. You need time for yourself to bond with yourself, learn more about yourself and make up funny jokes by yourself.
It’s completely okay for you to get to know yourself a little more than staring blankly at your social media feed.
5. Spend more time with your family and loved ones.
Being a millennial professional is hard work – you have to maintain and do your work in a way that means something to the world, in a way that means something to you.
And so you strive harder to become a better employee. There’s nothing wrong with being the strong, independent hard worker who only wants the best.
But in the middle of all the deadlines and the late nights, don’t forget to spend more time with your family and loved ones. Career is great, but having a blossoming career and a supportive family you can talk to each and every day – that’s even better.
Spend a little more time each day.
