January- The Most Stressful Month Of The Year?!

  • January is considered one of the most stressful months of the year for several reasons. One of the biggest: New Year’s resolutions .
  • Well-intentioned goals become a source of stress—stress that prevents you from moving forward and achieving your goals.
  • For each common resolution, look for ways to achieve it in a way that is positive and affirming instead of stressful.

1. Get Fit?!

  • The most common New Year's resolution has to do with getting in shape.
  • If you're trying to hit the gym to improve your health, enlist a friend to exercise with you.
  • A workout buddy means you have an incentive to exercise, along with built-in social support.
  • Fitness technology can also help you stay on track.
  • Having all your information in one place and readily available can help you be more aware and get closer to your fitness goals.

2. Save Money

  • You know you should save. Sometimes this is easier said than done.
  • But when you look around and it seems like no one else is doing it, you feel alone. 
  • Furthermore, it can be stressful to try to find the money to save. 
  • But budgeting for your future doesn’t have to be a stressful task.

Turn your weight-loss resolutions into SMART goals . SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. Here are some SMART weight loss goal ideas:

  • I will lose one pound each week until I reach XXX pounds in eight months.
  • I will lose six pounds a month until I reach XXX pounds in one year.

4. New Diets

4. New Diets

  • Losing weight is a very popular New Year’s resolution, and it's usually a great idea for overall health as well as for the fun of fitting into better clothes.
  • However, especially with certain types of diets, the first days of a new diet can bring frustration (from feeling "deprived" of favorite foods), moodiness (from biological changes in your body), and the loss of a coping mechanism (for emotional eaters who can no longer eat to deal with the stress).
  • It can be as stressful to be around a person who is trying a new diet as it can be to be that person, so stress management is key here as well.

5. Resolution Perfection

5. Resolution Perfection

  • No matter what the specific change you’re attempting, New Year’s resolutions can be stressful if tackled with the traditional method of setting a high goal and trying to attain it immediately.
  • When people fail once, they tend to give up.
  • This makes keeping resolutions an exercise in perfectionism, which can be stressful for anyone.
  • If you’d like to maintain resolutions with less stress, create a different format for your goals.
  • Take baby steps, build in rewards for your progress, and make a few other minor changes and you will see greater success with less stress.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
