In the last couple of years I wrote a reflective New Year post which was all very lovely and poetic. This year I wanted to post something that was equally sincere but was a little more down-to-earth. It’s about taking responsibility.
So, in the New Year, let us consider taking responsibility for:
…our planet. By doing so our children will inherit a place worth living in.
…our physical health. It sounds simple, but exercise and good sleep are vital for our physical wellbeing.
…our gut health. Eat less sugar and processed foods. By doing so we will be less of a burden on an already overstretched NHS.
…our relationships. Understand the benefits of resolving arguments rather than winning arguments.
…our society. Whilst thinking about ourselves, think about others who need help, though they might not ask for it.
…our self. Even if others do ask for help, don’t get burned out by ignoring your own need for rest.
If you like the idea of New Year’s resolutions, try completing this sentence:
This year, I’m going to take responsibility for … by doing …
Happy New Year to you.
