Resolutions for Sanity

Resolutions for Sanity

For decades, the most common New Year’s Resolutions have focused on weight loss, getting out of debt and living a healthier lifestyle (eating better, quitting smoking, exercising more, etc.) But after a year like 2020, we’re thinking 2021 is the year we focus more on mental health resolutions. Here are a few ideas to help you resolve to protect and improve your sanity in 2021.

Set boundaries and priorities

You know you can’t do it all, so why do you continue to say “yes” to everything and everyone? Keep only the activities and obligations that genuinely matter to you and your family.

Be ok with disappointing people

Taking care of yourself may mean saying no more often. Know that you can’t make yourself and everyone else happy all of the time. Be ok with the fact that you may disappoint people. Tell them why you’re saying no and you might be surprised by the support you receive instead. 

Adopt the Daily Five

After years of research, a UK government mental and physical  health think tank developed these five things you should do daily to improve your overall well-being.

  • Connect – develop relationships with others.
  • Be Active –whether physical like exercise or mental like reading or taking part in a hobby.
  • Be Curious – notice what’s around you, be present and appreciate every little thing.
  • Learn try something new or seek out something different. Research, read and explore.
  • Give Thanks – express gratitude and be generous with your praise of others. 

Let Go of Perfection

Give grace to yourself and others when things don’t turn out the way you think they should. Perfection is nearly impossible to achieve, so expect less of yourself and others.

We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. Be graceful and forgiving when you or someone else falls short.

    

Rest

This doesn’t mean getting more sleep (although you should have 6-8 hours per night) but resting your mind. Turn off all distractions, even music with lyrics, and sit in the quiet for 10-20. Try not to think about anything. This will give your mind a chance to really rest.  

Promise to practice more self-care

Self-care is any activity you deliberately do that helps your physical, emotional or spiritual health. All of The Sauna Haus’ services are designed to help you achieve this. See our packages and memberships and save over single session pricing. This is one resolution we hope you keep in 2021!
