1. List your goals for the next five years

Sit down with some paper and write down everything that you want to achieve in the next year. Then get a second piece of paper and write down your long-term goals for the next five years. You are much more likely to accomplish your goals if you write them down and make them real. This also means you can track your progress.

2. Swap an old habit for a new and better habit

Most people have a few bad habits that they would like to ditch. Instead of just giving up your bad habit, it can be useful to introduce a new and better habit that you do every day. For instance, you may give up drinking coffee and instead aim to drink more water. Your progress with your new habit may help you totally avoid the old habit.

3. Start to exercise

There are many different benefits of exercising. Physical activity not only improves your body confidence and overall mood, it also lowers your chances of heart disease and relieves stress. If you think the idea of starting an exercise routine is intimidating, start off by doing 10 minutes of exercise in your home every day.

5. Start to single-task

6. Start a new friendship

As we get older, we often lose many of our close friends. Most people wish that they had more friends in their life, so use today as an opportunity to make a new friend. Simply start by smiling at strangers and starting conversations with your co-workers and people on your commute.

9. Start to stand up for yourself

Being a pushover is tough; you can feel taken advantage of, pushed around, and used. Sticking up for yourself will give you a new and happier lease of life. Start by saying “no” to other people without feeling guilty or mean.
