January bingo board: Start the New Year with wellness

IJanuary is a time for new beginnings and for setting or resetting intentions that might have fallen out of view.

While change can happen at any time of year, January is an especially compelling time to build new habits or get back in touch with old ones. And we’re here to help you clarify your wellness resolutions and put them into action.

So keep reading to find inspiration for starting 2024 on the right foot.

Identify the most impactful coping skills for mental health

If you’re thinking: “I want to change, but I don’t know what to change!” You’re not alone.

The new year can be overwhelming in that way. Between personal goals, internet chatter, social comparison, and more, it’s hard to know exactly where to start improving your life.

Here’s the good news: The most important self-improvement resolutions are the ones that matter to you, not what the world around you is saying.

So if you’re looking for a way to identify your priorities, consider writing a list of all of your goals for the coming year. Then, narrow your list to your top five goals, and then identify your top three. Consider these your non-negotiables for the new year.

This exercise helps you realize what’s important to you and narrows your focus, which can keep you from overcommitting and drive you toward success.

Create accountability

Once you've set your goals or resolutions for the new year, it’s important to create some level of accountability for yourself.

So here’s our number one tip: Whether you want to run a marathon this year or walk your dog this afternoon, tell a friend!

When you share your new goals and habits with someone you trust, you gain support, accountability, and motivation to stay the course.

It’s like gaining a teammate—someone who will cheer for your success, keep you honest, and give you tough love when you need it most.

Prefer to maintain a low profile? You can still hold yourself accountable by making lists of short-term goals (and keeping them easily visible!), planning ahead, journaling, or creating a vision board.
