Let’s face it — who among us has set a lofty New Year’s resolution to become a new and improved person in some nebulous way, only to completely abandon our plans by the time February rolls around? One reason why resolutions are so often unsuccessful is that they are intangible — maybe you want to be healthier, but you don’t have a specific game plan in place for how you’re going to achieve that. It’s easy to feel stuck and unmotivated when opting for a green juice instead of a soda once doesn’t result in immediate changes. Or you want to be more organized, but don’t have any strategies to actually improve. The fact is no one becomes a lean, protein-loving gym rat or a super organized person overnight!
When you have major goals, or simply an overall vision for how you’d like your life to feel, the key to lasting success isn’t making one-time choices; it comes from changes in your small, everyday habits. In our most recent video over on the TFD YouTube channel, Chelsea covers 15 everyday things anyone can easily start doing differently in 2019. Getting healthier doesn’t mean going to a Zumba class one time; it means doing things like figuring out how to fit regular physical activity into your schedule and planning out meals that actually make you feel good. Making new friends in adulthood means putting yourself out there on a regular basis — but in a more comfortable way than you might think.
And when it comes to becoming more organized, make 2019 the year you finally go digital. Adobe Scan is a mobile app that allows you to turn your phone into a portable scanner and create editable PDFs. It can be used to consolidate any paper documents you might need to take on the go or to capture digital versions of documents while traveling. Whether you’re organizing receipts to expense or need to upload a signed freelance contract, the Adobe Scan app has you covered!
