Extract from Mary Rechtoris’s article “20 New Year’s Resolutions from the Stellar Women Community”
The new year poses a chance to regroup. We can look at our priorities and see what is serving us, and what we can forgo. Whether you opt to do this in January or more fluidly throughout the year, it is important to take stock of your personal and professional goals periodically and ensure you are on the right track to achieve them.
For me, 2021 was dedicated to my health. As an individual with type one diabetes, I’ve always had to be very conscious of my physical health. While I’ve always prioritized workouts and monitored my blood glucose levels, I never consistently ensured my mental and spiritual health were in tip-top shape. So, last year, I got to work on maintaining all three through meditation, limiting my alcohol intake, walking for enjoyment, and setting boundaries. Heading into 2022, I want to take it that much further. I want to be more present and slow down. (I realized the need to do this when I not only lost my keys, but also my fiancé’s keys, in a 30-minute span.) I’m striving to take time to breathe, focus on the task at hand, and, really, get out of my own way.
The Stellar Women community is also dedicated to growth—which is really what resolutions are about. From leading with kindness to making 100 new friends, all 20 of the below resolutions gathered from our fellow professionals are impactful and hopefully serve as inspiration for what you want to do or who you want to be.
