Where Should Your Focus Lie This Year?


Getting back into the swing of life in January can often feel quite unsettling. With the kids back to school and you trying to establish a routine, the last thing you can often think about is becoming a brand new you. Because the old one is struggling to keep up. It really does take a lot of time for you to get yourself into the habit of waking up early, of cooking, or getting out of the door on time after a short while of everything being so up in the air. Alas, after that first week of ‘normality’ is over, everything becomes a little easier. And by the time you get to the end of January, you’re feeling readier than ever to make a change or two. But, the big question is, what should that change be?


Family

First of all, maybe you want to put a lot more time and energy into your family? If that’s the case, then you might want to start looking at your parenting style now and seeing where you can improve. You might also want to allocate some more quality time together so that you’re able to make this a year of family time.



Career

For you, it could be the year of your career. Maybe you’ve been meaning to get back into work and now is the time that you want to make that happen. You could look at an online masters in guidance counseling or an evening vocational course in what you want to do. By studying in your own time, you’ll get the skills you need to make the leap and start to build your career up again.

Health

For a lot of people, this is the perfect time of the year to work on all things health. If you felt a little sluggish over the holiday period and you know you are a lot, it might be the perfect time for you to start working out a lot more - or shake up your diet. So really think about what your health and wellness goals are. It could be something as simple as working on a skincare routine or committing to meditating more.



Finances

It’s also a great time to start thinking a lot more seriously about your financial situation too. Do you earn enough, or would you like to work on that? Should you channel more efforts into your career and aim for a promotion? Or maybe you can side-hustle? Or, maybe you want to cut back and budget better so you can start saving? Now is the time to do it.

Future

Or maybe your mind wants to be more on the future? Maybe you’re done with the everyday life kind of things and you’re ready to make a big change to life as you know it? Then you need to start planning for the future now. Whether you want to buy a house or start a business, now is the time to start working on that. So get a plan together, get your thoughts out, and see just where this might be able to take you.

  1. In 2018, I had a bad bout with sepsis and nearly died. I know exactly where my focus will be for a while: my health.
