It's that time of year again! Time to make promises to yourself that you'll probably break. Time to say, this year will be different. This time, I'm doing it! Yes, it's New Year's Resolutions time! We've all been there before, after months of good ol' jolly holiday spirit and a little bit too much stuffing, you promise yourself to lose a couple of pounds. But do we follow through?
That's where we thought we could step in to help, and give you some great tips on how to set the right New Year's Resolution. One that will promise you a fantastic 2021!
Consider your values
When setting any sort of goal for yourself, it’s important to consider your personal values and what matters most to you. For all of us at Treehuggers, our most important value is doing our part to help the environment. This helps us to decide where we should focus our energy in the upcoming year.
Vague goals can be tough to follow through on. By getting specific about what you want to accomplish, you give yourself a way to measure your progress towards your goal. In 2021, we’ve set the goal of reaching 1 million trees planted!
Share with friends & family
One of the best ways to keep yourself accountable as you work towards your goals is to share them with your friends and family. That way, they can support you on your journey. Sharing our goals with you has given us endless support from the Treehuggers community. And who knows, you might even inspire someone else to set some new goals!
Take small steps
Setting big goals is great, but those goals can be daunting when you try to look at and tackle them all at once. Instead, break them into small steps and tackle a little bit each day. By planting one tree for each bracelet sold, we are constantly getting closer to our goal, and if one of your resolutions is helping out the planet, giving back to mother nature, then so are you!
We're confident in our way and in our goal. We have been fortunate enough to plant over 150,000 trees so far in just a little over a year. Making us want to reach for more. This year, we're turning the tide on climate change and deforestation. Are you in?
Happy New Year!!!
