This year was unexpected year for all of us. So it is no surprise if you were not able to commit to your goals and resolutions set for 2020. For some people, getting a fresh start in 2021 feels very appealing. However, many people might reevaluate their New Year's resolution plans for 2021.
Even though they were not established as New Year's resolutions, 2020 brought some new good habits that might become resolutions for the upcoming year. Video calls, for example, became common and have been bringing many families closer.
Specialists say that there could be some benefit at looking at what one resolved last year and adapting that. Instead of setting hard-to-attain, lofty goals, you can focus on simply what you want to do differently.
“A lot of New Year’s resolutions don’t age well, but New Year’s reflections can age really well” says Dr. Deborah Gilboa.
