Rather than a New Year Resolution how about a ‘coming out of lockdown resolution?’
COVID and lockdown have been positive and negative. There have clearly been some positives. Many have felt the benefits of working from home and travelling less.
This is a good time to decide which new behaviours and practices you want to keep. What to you want to keep doing online? How can you stay in touch with friends and family? Maybe you were zooming people and now have the chance to see them face to face. Did you spend less? Were you happy with what you have and gave up on wanting more as the way to happiness. Did you walk more and greet neighbours?
It will be easy to lose the positives of lockdown and move onto another normal. Make sure you make a resolution to keep what was helpful. The old normal was Ok but we can move to a better normal and keep the benefits of an enforced lockdown
Maybe list the benefits and decide how to behave to make them habits.
