A brand new year has come our way with 365 new opportunities to work our magic and live our best lives, to reach the ultimate heights of success in every sphere of our lives.
We do not realize but very small changes can turn things around like magic and here I am, with 12 tips that will unlock the potential that you have been sitting on!
1. Do away with the negativity
Negative vibes and thoughts do more harm than you might think. They not only affect your mental health but they also affect your physical health. Negativity also causes stress, one of the major problems in every millennial’s’ life. I know it is way easier said than done, but if you try to look at the silver linings, things will start to feel and get better.
2. Be the giver
Life gets us all down in some way or the other but one cannot deny that there will always be someone less fortunate than us, and let this be the basis of all our actions this year. Give to the less fortunate and make their lives a little better. You do not have to give more than you can afford to, but do the most that you can and I promise you that you will feel great after.
3. Work on your relationships
Year after year, the burden of all our relationships gets heavier because of all the jagged pieces we leave untouched. It is a lot of work, but working on our relationships yields very positive and fulfilling results, especially ones that ensure a lighter, happier soul.
4. Think before you talk
The power of words is enormous and, most of the times, we do not realize that. So this year, start acknowledging the power of words and know that they might hurt someone. To ensure that does not happen, think twice before you say things out loud.
5. Knowledge is power
Nothing makes a human being better than knowledge and information and that is how growth happens. This 2019, find sources for more knowledge and keep the doors of your mind open. You will find yourself to be a better person at the end of the year.
6. Fix your sleep schedule
When you get adequate sleep, you give your body, mind and soul the rest that they desperately need to keep functioning. Even though it is hard to maintain a good sleep cycle with the rest of the many activities that one has to undertake in life, trying hurts nobody.
7. Self-care is important
We often put others before us, making our own selves our last priority, which is ultimately pretty bad for our mental health. In 2019, make yourself your first priority and take care of yourself. This does not mean you cannot care about other people, but do not sacrifice yourself.

8. Start working on your bucket list
We all have one. Start working on ticking off things you have always wanted to do, one by one. Trust me, it is going to satisfy your soul in ways you thought were never possible.
9. Do not let the haters get to you
Look, whatever you do, however hard you try, there are always going to be a few people who will hate you, no matter what. You could devote your life to the betterment of society and be completely unselfish but you cannot make everyone happy all the time. You are not a McDonald’s happy meal. Follow your bliss and do what makes you happy.
10. Have faith in yourself
Self-doubt is a part of life but that does not mean that it has to be your entire life. You will mess up from time to time, but what is proof of humanity if not a few mistakes? It is alright, do not get hung over on those things and believe that you are going to be better because it is only then that you will be better.
Keep the body healthy as well. Wake up and take a hike! Sweating is an excellent way to get the dopamine pumping, which will result in a lot of smiles! Eat healthy, too. Good food and some activity will add an unbelievable amount of vitality to your life!
12. Find a hobby
Do your thing. Find your happy place while indulging in your favorite activity.
