5 Self-Strength Tips to get you Through the Rest of 2022

5 Self-Strength Tips to get you Through the Rest of 2022


1. Eat the Rainbow

Taste the Rainbow! Number one on our priorities will be continuing to eat healthy, even though it may feel like those choices are harder to find in December. For those of us in the east-midwest Northern Hemisphere, we're looking at the deep leafy greens like kale, butternut squash, garlic, & broccoli—these are great for colds and flu, and also preventing cancer. 

2. Find out what your strengths are

Do you know what your strengths are? Might be a good time to find out! You can start by asking around to hear what your friends, family, and coworkers think are your strong-suits. Or try out the enneagram personality tests that lays both your strengths and weaknesses out for you. 

3. Start Journaling

Don’t wait to start journaling in the new year. Start now! Here, we’ll paint the picture for you. You wake up, let the dog out, pour yourself a cup of coffee, turn the Christmas tree lights on, and pour your thoughts onto paper. There are many benefits to journaling, but our favorite is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. Placing your concerns on paper gives it a place to rest instead of running circles in your mind. 

4. Be Proactive

A body in motion, stays in motion (thanks Liz Moody!). We like to keep this in mind when we’re having a hard time being proactive. Ignoring a problem will not make the problem go away, unfortunately. Try Liz’s tip with starting small, which might give you the confidence boost you needed. 

5. You come first

You are #1. Always. If you always put yourself last (think not working out, not saving time for yourself, not eating well), you will, and we mean, YOU WILL, get burnout. Putting yourself first isn’t selfish, it’s actually one of the most selfless things you can do for the people around you.
