Looking for Happiness in the New Year? Start With These Resolutions

Happiness is something everyone’s talking about nowadays — or more importantly, how to achieve it. With 2020 on the horizon, December is the perfect time to reflect on this past year and plan for the next one.

Finding Happiness in 2020

Rethink Your Job

Whether you’re simply not passionate about your job or you’re working in a toxic environment, having a job that you dread affects nearly every aspect of your life. Even once the workday is done, it can be hard to shake feelings of frustration or disappointment when you get home. On the other hand, a job that you absolutely love can improve every aspect of your life, from your relationships with friends to your self-confidence.

If you’ve been considering branching out on your own for some time now, there’s no time like the New Year to make your dreams a reality! As a The Little Gym owner, you’ll not only realize your dreams of becoming a business owner, but you’ll work every day in an industry that excites and encourages you.

Practice a Healthy Work-Life Balance

Spending time with friends and family isn’t just fun, it’s a necessity. While a long day will be necessary from time to time (especially if you’re starting a business), being overworked can lead to higher-than-average levels of stress and workplace burnout.

No matter what industry you’re in, improve your work-life balance this year by:

  • Sticking to the set work hours you create for yourself.
  • Understanding your strengths and working on weaknesses.
  • Not being afraid to ask for help when you need it.
  • Creating a detailed plan for accomplishing long-term goals.

Find Meaning in Your Work

Though there’s no one definition of what happiness is, researchers have found that people who give back to others and find meaning in their day-to-day life tend to be happier.

As a The Little Gym owner, you’ll be responsible for developing a child’s confidence and skills in a noncompetitive environment that encourages them to be their best, not the best.
