5 Optimistic Rebirthing Tips
In retrospect December and January are the months I am most
creative, because I'm bored. Thinking back over the winters I have
suffered led me to optimistic tips I have learned. It's during the
winter months, we become less occupied with activities. Winter
month become prime time for reflection and retooling oneself.
When thinking about how to move forward in our lives, we
dream of something new, birth ideas and make New Years Resolutions.
As soon as the warmer months or even before the warmer moths arrive
many times we abandon the results of the winter idea spree. I have
had my grand moments of self exploration and creativity, only to
get sidetracked, by slow progress, and eventual disinterest until
the next winter. Deciding to be better steered me to slowing
down and simplifying my ideas. Writing down the ideas is one of the
best practices to make things sticky. I have listed 5 Optimistic
rebirthing tips, as they directly relate to New Years Resolutions.
The most substantial action with enacting change is to try, put an
action to the thought. Many of us fail because we never honestly
try to reach our goals. Even if we put forth an effort, the
slightest obstacle can derail our efforts. Fear is another factor.
Often we are afraid we will succeed, the mind get in the way and
can sway your outcome to obtain your goal. fear of failure is
not relative, if you don't somehow reach your goal Any changes we
make to ourselves, be it thoughts, actions and ideology is a
personal rebirthing, however small. So here are my tips.
Tip number # 1 - Try to meet new people
As we grow older and pass the high school and college phase,
introduction to new people dwindles for us professionally and
socially. After most of us begin to have families with
children the circle rapidly becomes smaller of new individuals and
adult social interactions. Facebook, google + becomes our social
portal. These platforms are lacking due to the lack breathing the
same air as another human. There is a great platform for getting
out of the house, learning new things and make new acquaintances,
. Meetup.com is a place
to become involved with your community, gather new social networks,
and learn things related to almost any interest on the planet.
You can sign up, input your interest and list of local and
remote meeting of groups/events will appear before you immediately.
Tip number # 2 - Try a new Activity
This is a cousin to tip number 1, but differs in the meetups are
things you are interested already typically but can be integrated
with tip number 2. Do you have an idea that someone you know make
look at you a little crazy because they never though of you as that
adventurous. Well that is the thing you should do. Well it
does not have to be really crazy. Pick something you have had
interest but never really got around to experiencing. I'm not you
so, you know what that thing is. Try to make a short term bucket
list. It could be visit the ocean, climb a mountain,join a yoga
class, visit old battle grounds, or visit Washington state of
Washington D.C. The choice is yours but like Nike slogan puts it,
Just Do It.
Tip number # 3 - Travel far from where you live (1000 mile
64% of American have never traveled abroad and do not posses a
passport. Will America is a vast country, many American travel, but
to places of familiarity. Much of this is due to the Job parameters
of vacation time. You would be really surprised at how much travel
and experiences you can fit into a three or four-day weekend if
vacation time is limited to 10 or 12 days a year. You may be able
to use learning experiences related to you Job to get the heck
away. Employers may be willing to give you more time off if it will
benefit them because of a conference you are attending on your own
dime. It is important to visit places you may see on the travel
channel. Distance traveling may be a little taxing but it is so
worth it. My Mom taught me about travel very early on with the
three and four-day excursions we would have. The experiences opened
me up to things later in life which have proven to be extremely
valuable as an adult.
Tip number # 4 - Learn a new Skill
Learning a new skill is vital to your growth. Remember that we all
suck at something at first, and the best portion is the journey.
Learning a new skill keeps you fresh and in tuned with who you are
and what you want in life. There have been many people who have
changed careers because they learned a new skill and found out how
much passion it pulled from their core. I have don't this several
times in my life with DJing, Podcasting, and electronic repair to
name a few. While you may not be wildly adventurous, learning a
single new skill and make life more enjoyable.
Tip number # 5 - Change your style
Fashion is an ever evolving component in our lives. Changing
fashion or physical presence is a confidence booster. Changing
aspects of yourself gives you freedom and says you are not stuck.
We all know that person who has worn the same hairstyle since 1998.
Get fresh with yourself. It may not be drastic as wearing pink
suits to work, but chose a different pants and shoe combinations.
Move from jeans and sneakers and slacks and upscaled shoes. Try a
different hair style ( I can't because I don't have the hair), ease
into it. Women are the kinds of changing style, men on the other
hand are not very good style changers. If you are man with no
style, please consult a woman, since we have not clue how to
accessorize, and complement our forms.
