In 2021, we all will have many choices to make. The last year forced us to pause. Perhaps during that time, we reflected on what we wanted to change in our homes, offices, and communities.
At the beginning of a New Year, many decide to set goals to be better versions of themselves. Let this article inspire you to keep the goals you have already set, but also, add one and/or all of the choices below.
Create a Work-Life Balance
As we leave our work from home and return to our workplaces little by little, we have to remember to turn off our devices and punch out of work. Last year, everything was at home: learning from home, working from home, and working out at home.
That meant that it was difficult to unplug. Many were clocking fifty or more hours. Let’s not repeat the bad habits of 2020. It’s not good for your health nor your relationships. If it helps you accomplish this goal, know that you do have legal rights to create a work-life balance.
Draw boundaries with your personal time as well as your professional time. Time is a valuable commodity. There never seems to be enough of it. That is why every second of your time is priceless.
Head for an Adventure
The outdoors has been a solace for human beings for eons. Don’t let life going back to normal mean that you don’t head to the outdoors for an adventure. In fact, it has been proven that there are three benefits to adding adventure to your life.
You can easily take a walk in your neighborhood park or beach. Perhaps you want to explore farther from home. Why not take a road trip with your family and/or friends to someplace new?

Opt for Locally Sourced Products
Your decision to buy a product affects you, your family, and your community. Did you know that by buying local over half of that money remains in the community? That means that your purchase at a small local business stays in town for parks, roads, and services. Additionally, by buying locally sourced foods and products, your carbon footprint is greatly reduced. In 2021, green is the new black. Sustainable is in and in for good.
In order to be better than we were last year, we must learn from 2020. Although we all changed our routines in 2020, in 2021 we must make better choices.
Let this list inspire you to create a work-life balance, head for an adventure in the outdoors, as well as purchase locally sourced products. With these choices, we can transform and evolve to our best selves. Here’s to our best year yet!
