First thing’s first: Take a deep breath. Look around you. Reflect on your 2018 year. What adventures did you go on? What significant memories did you make? What do you wish you could have done? Now, focus on what was good and what was bad. What do you want to continue? What do you want to change? How are you going to do it?
Step One: Write Down Your Goals
This might sound silly, but write down your goals. Make sub-points with each goal and focus on how you are going to achieve them. The key to any goal is to make it realistic. Don’t try to take on all your goals full force at once. Pace yourself. Focus on one or two goals at a time. Spread them throughout your week/year.
Step Two: Reduce Stress
