A Fresh Start for the New Year Continues with Uniball 

Now that the confetti and glitter have settled, it’s time to dive into the new year with fresh goals and ideas. Easier said than done, right? When more than half of New Years resolutions fail or are forgotten by the end of January, you can’t help but wonder if there is a better way to achieve your goals. That’s where the power of journaling and goal planning can help you beat the resolution slump. With a few easy writing tips, you too can achieve that fresh start that will last year-round! 

Goal Planning

Being able to describe your goals in written form gives you the best chance of successfully completing your goals. Writing down your goals helps you clarify what you want to achieve. 

• State your goals in positive terms. Write what you want to happen, not just what you want to avoid. 

• Prioritize. After you’ve made a list of goals, identify your top three. Focus energy there. 

• Revisit regularly. Treat your goal sheet as a living document. When you achieve a goal, indicate that with a visual reminder of your success–cross it off, add stars, highlight it green–whatever helps you see your progress most happily. 

Motivational & Mindfulness Journaling

Journaling is a practice of recording your thoughts, feelings, and insights. Journaling promotes mental, emotional, and resilience to navigate life’s challenges. 

• Consistency is Key. Set aside dedicated time each day or week to maintain a regular journaling routine. 

• Experiment with Styles. Try different journaling styles such as free writing, bullet journaling, or prompts to discover what resonates with you. 

• Mindfulness and Meditation. Combine journaling with mindfulness or meditation exercises to enhance self-awareness and promote a sense of calm.
