How to be a Better Person in 2020


2020 is the year to be better! We all know what it’s like to start the New Year with resolutions that fizzle out by February. This year, let’s make a resolution that sticks: to be a better person. Here are some tips to help you make 2020 the year of personal growth.

Set realistic goals.

The first step to being a better person is setting realistic goals. If your goal is to lose weight, don’t set a goal of losing 100 pounds by summer. Start small, and focus on making healthy choices that you can stick with long-term.

Express gratitude.

The next step is to focus on the positive. One way to do this is to express gratitude. Make it a habit to thank the people in your life who make a positive impact, big or small. You’ll be surprised at how good it feels, and how much it brightens someone’s day.

Make time for yourself.

In order to be your best self, you need to make time for yourself. This may mean taking a few minutes each day to meditate, or going for a walk in nature. It could even be something as simple as reading a book or taking a relaxing bath. Whatever it is, make sure to schedule “me time” into your week so you can recharge your batteries.

Be patient.

One of the most important things to remember when trying to be a better person is to be patient. Change doesn’t happen overnight, and it’s important to be gentle with yourself as you work on becoming the best version of yourself.

These are just a few tips to help you be a better person in 2020. Remember, the key is to start small and focus on making sustainable changes. If you take it one step at a time, you’ll be surprised at how far you can go.
