The Happiest Year of Your Life (#HappierIn2019)

January 6, 2019

Are you ready to rock 2019?

Here’s how it works – 12 months, 12 different areas of life where we can improve. Each month, we’ll have a challenge that falls within that focus every week.

This is the perfect way to get goals done when it comes to the way our brains work. Our brains can thrive when we are constantly accomplishing goals. We rewire our brains to say “I am capable. I can accomplish what I set to do.”

I talked about this in the Hacking Your Habits episode of Happiness in Progress.

It’s different than the last 10 years in which I’ve written down the same goal, over and over and over again.

Have you been there?

Not this year!

I believe ANYONE CAN DO ANYTHING FOR 7 DAYS. That’s all I’m asking here.

Each month will have a new focus. Each week within the month will have a specific goal.

In January, a lot of people focus on their health. That’s where we are going to start, but later this year we’ll be diving into finances, organization and social media consumption.

HERE’S HOW JANUARY LOOKS:

Week 1: WAKE UP EARLY
Week 2: ADD A HABIT
Week 3: CUT A HABIT
Week 4: FOCUS ON FITNESS

Each week I’ll send out a free printable – you just have to be signed up for the email list.

LET’S GET STARTED BY WAKING UP EARLY:

I know, I know. No one wants to wake up early – and you might hate me for starting with this challenge. 😉

BUT by starting the year out with this goal – we will give ourselves a jumpstart on ANY GOAL WE WANT TO ACCOMPLISH.

You can wake up 5 minutes early so you can meditate, take a shower, beat your kids to the kitchen, read. You can wake up an hour earlier to exercise, read, clean, pay bills.

Part of waking up early is GOING TO BED ON TIME. Generally speaking, we are more productive in the morning than at night. When we get our “free time” at night – usually it’s because we’re binging on Netflix, not exercising. Or we’re scrolling our social media feeds instead of reading.

To start, choose a wake-up time. Then backtime your night 6-8 hours to determine your best sleep time.

I know some of you struggle with insomnia and issues sleeping. In that case, check out this podcast episode with Dr. Oz’s Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus. He has some great tips on getting better and longer sleep.

Check out my Facebook Live for ideas on how to get to sleep on time and why!

KEEP EACHOTHER ACCOUNTABLE!

Let’s keep eachother accountable by interacting on social media! If you are on Instagram just hashtag #Happierin2019 and #DaniellesHappinessHabits If you are on Facebook, use the hashtags and share on my Facebook page.

I’ve also started a new Facebook Group where we can chat and cheer each other on!

I’d love to share some of your goals and your progress through the week!

Start by asking yourself ‘What time will I wake up?’ and ‘What time will I go to bed?’ Hit ‘REPLY’ and let me know what time you’re hoping to wake up and how it will benefit your life.
