New year new me?
2020, a new year, a new decade!
Personally, I love new years, I find it very exciting and a good time to set goals and challenges. However, I do also believe that its important to set yourself achievable goals.
As an occupational therapist, I spend a lot of time working with clients helping them to set realistic and attainable goals. Setting goals gives an enormous sense of purpose and a sense of achievement (once the goal has been met).

It’s very easy to be overwhelmed, I think it’s always good to start small when it comes to goal setting. It is vital to not set yourself up to fail. For example, if you set yourself a goal of losing a stone by March, while it is possible, it’s just not sensible!
Creating achievable tasks is something we should all do; something I say to my clients is, that one daily goal is enough.
This daily goal could be:
Complete one piece of housework
Spend ten minutes outside without your phone
Or it could just simply be to get out of bed and brush your teeth
The goals you set yourself are all relative to you, so don’t feel pressured to suddenly change your lifestyle!
Our office new year resolution
In the office we have decided to set a group goal. This year we want to all meet for a weekly face to face catch up. As an employer I really think it’s important that I show my face in the office and spend time with my colleagues. This has a direct link with increasing employee wellbeing!
