New Year resolutions for widows don’t have to be big, they can be small and simple so you can have fun going after them.
A goal doesn’t have to sound painful. Why can’t it be the year of simple goals: reading more books, laughing daily and day dreaming freely?
Grief steals our dreams, but we need to get some new ones. Try day dreaming, let your thoughts drift towards what you want instead of what you don’t want.
Widows suffer from loneliness and research has shown that having stronger ties to family and friends extends our lives. Vow to reach out, whether it’s to an old friend or someone you barely know. It could be the one goal you do for your health that you actually fulfill.
New Year’s resolutions can be frustrating, because by the end of February most of us have lost steam and given up. The good life isn’t made only of major moments. It’s often the little, everyday ahas that bring your year closer to what you’re hoping for.
Cheers to your 2019 moments to come, both large and small.
