As another year passes, we often find ourselves reflecting on the year behind us with high hopes for what is next to come.
And as we grow older, time becomes more precious than the year before, often encouraging us to step out of our comfort zone and experience moments in life that we’ve always dreamed of accomplishing. That said, after the year we’ve collectively experienced, many of us are most likely feeling unbalanced and aimless going into the year ahead of us.
Therefore, to re-awaken your inner spark and delight for 2021, we’ve put together a list of resolutions that will inspire you to focus on positive change, self-love, and gratitude in your life moving forward.
5 of the Best New Year’s Resolutions for Older Women
Write down one thing you are grateful for every day
It’s often easy to forget the aspects of your life you are grateful for during the year. Each day can feel like an endless list of responsibilities, commotion, and stress. Therefore, to ground yourself back into the present moment, make an effort to write down one thing you are grateful for each day.
Whether it be in a notebook or on your phone. At the end of the year, pull out your gratitude journal and reflect on the positive points in your life you may have forgotten about.
Spend more time with family and friends
This year is all about reconnecting with family and friends we have lost touch with the past couple of months.
Whether it’s over the phone, Zoom, or in-person (in a socially distant way, of course), 2021 is all about rebuilding relationships and getting back to our sense of normalcy, and that begins with our closest friends and family.
Be more active
If 2020 has taught us anything, it has been to appreciate the outdoors and fresh air. This year make it a goal for yourself to spend more time out in nature and become more active.
Even if only for a few minutes, getting yourself up and out of the house is a fantastic way to reconnect with nature and live a healthy lifestyle.
Honor Your Age and Pamper Yourself
Spend this year pampering yourself –you deserve it. Try out global beauty trends such as the Gua Sha or dry brushing to revitalize and plump your skin. Remember that beauty does not fade as we grow older and wiser but rather becomes more graceful.
It’s time to embrace your inner and outer beauty!
Give Back to Your Community
Giving back to your community through volunteer work is an excellent way to feel as though you are a part of a greater initiative and is a great way to socialize with people within your community.
Whether it’s donating or volunteering your time, doing a service for others is a fantastic way to feel thankful and humble throughout your year.
As you can see, older women have many ways to connect with ourselves and the community throughout this year. Let us know if you have any other new year’s resolutions you’d like to add to the list –let’s embrace the year ahead with open hearts and open minds!
