With each new year that is rung in by ball drops and champagne toasts, everyone feels a fresh start for what’s to come in the next 365 days. New years bring a fresh perspective and outlook on life and allow you to set new goals to transform yourself or to make small changes to better your life. Resolutions, whether they be big or small challenges, help motivate people.

Not only did we just turn the page on a new year, but we’re starting a whole new decade. Therefore, the bar is set high to truly challenge yourself to make some changes in the next ten years. To start bettering yourself and setting yourself up for success for a new decade, you can start small by making goals for 2020.

But what can you do to make sure this year’s resolutions actually stick? Keep reading for tips on how to have a successful 2020 for both your professional and personal lives!


Be More Active

It’s no secret that a more active lifestyle leads to an overall happier life. The American Heart Association recommends adults get 150 minutes of exercise a week. If you exercise daily this amounts to only a little over 20 minutes a day or 50 minutes a day a few times a week. To be more successful, try aiming to live a less sedentary lifestyle, even if it means incorporating daily walks into your routine or getting up from your desk once every hour to do some stretches. You’ll feel so much better if you get up and move! Of course, before starting any new exercise program, but sure to consult your physician to make sure it’s suitable for your health and lifestyle. 

Wake Up Earlier

Feel like there just isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish everything you’d like to get done? Do you wake up immediately feeling stressed and overwhelmed or do you go to bed feeling unproductive? Fortunately, there is a solution to feeling more successful in a given day – wake up earlier! By setting your alarm an hour or two before you usually do, you’ll maximize the time you alot in your day to be more productive. However, waking up early doesn’t mean you have to immediately tackle your to-do list. Take a few minutes each morning to clear your head and set a list of goals for the day. You’ll feel less stressed if you allow yourself more time in the day.

Establish More Professional Relationships

We all know building professional rapport is a great way to succeed in your career, but do you actually network? Establishing more professional relationships is always a great idea! You never know when you’ll need to rely on some of your networking contacts. If you haven’t networked in a while, connect with previous colleagues with whom you’ve lost touch and form relationships with more people in your office in different departments. Are you on LinkedIn? Meet even more professionals in your area by attending networking events at least a few times a year. Kansas City hosts some wonderful networking events – take a look at some of them and get involved!  Or consider joining a professional organization, local chamber or doing some volunteer charity work.

Treat Yourself

Have you been fantasizing of taking that tropical vacation or that romantic getaway with your significant other? Is one of your favorite artists performing at a local venue during their next world tour? Not sure what to do with your vacation days this year? Treat yourself! Rewarding yourself throughout the year can lead to more productivity and an overall happier life. Self-care is something we could all use more of. Not only does treating yourself make you happier, but it allows you to take a step back from the busy, everyday hustle and bustle and lets you clear your mind, whether that be taking a vacation or attending a concert.
