Meeting the New Year with a smile

Each New Year we are exhorted to create a list of resolutions that are meant to motivate us to make positive changes in our life. Invariably, we go back to our old behaviours and feel even worse because we feel that "we failed" to achieve our goals.

Instead, why don't we incorporate behaviours that won't cost us anything (special diet foods, exercise equipment, gym memberships) but will contribute to a feeling of well being and optimism.

A simple act such as smiling can boost neurochemicals in your brain that release  dopamine, a feel good hormone. Smiling is contagious and the positive feelings are then shared with another person. Try smiling more throughout the day, especially to people who are in the service industry.

Acts of kindness are easy and creative and can be done at any time. A small act can really brighten someone's day and you feel gifted by their delight.

It's so easy to get bogged down by our stresses and worries. We feel lethargic, depressed, anxious and scared. Sometimes just writing down something we feel grateful for (e.g. "This day didn't turn out as bad as I expected!!") will boost our spirits and remind us that there are still reasons to be hopeful and appreciative.

Take a bit of time each day or whenever possible to nourish your body, mind and spirit. Whether through music, walking, meeting a friend, reading a great book, meditating, or just by taking some quiet time-out , you will feel replenished and this will give you more energy for other activities throughout your busy life.

Instead of feeling pessimistic about the new year ahead, do more to encourage yourself that life can be good after all.
