Journaling/ Reflection

Journaling seemed to be everyone’s buzz word for 2022. A quick visit to Instagram would reveal that every ‘it’ girl was journaling as a way to find clarity. You could consider journaling as well. A quick ‘brain dump’ could be all your need to find calm in the coming year.


No matter the shape or form of exercise, it’s imperative that you move your body in some way. Consider running, yoga, martial arts, weight training or cardio for a quick endorphin boost. A morning or evening walk could be a good start.

Taking up ONE new hobby

For the longest time, I felt that having a hobby meant that my entire identity was tied to my hobby. Lately, I’ve found that this couldn’t be further from the truth. To stave off boredom, and build a fulfilling life, consider starting a new hobby in 2023. If you’re not sure where to start, here is a list of possible ideas.

Cleaning up your devices

By now you’ve probably heard that your phone has more germs than a toilet seat. It’s a good idea to clean your phone screen at least once a day.

Drinking Water

The National Academy of Medicine recommends 9 glasses of water daily. This may take a conscious effort, especially for those in cooler climates. It helps to choose water first whenever you are thirsty.

Cutting Down on Caffeine

This goes hand-in-hand with increasing your water intake. Increased amounts of caffeine can adversely affect your ability to perform effectively. The Princeton review highlights that short term effects of increased caffeine intake include:

  • increased alertness

  • increased blood pressure

  • increased breathing rate

  • increased urination

While long-term caffeine intake can cause:

  • nervousness

  • insomnia

  • dehydration

  • stomach irritation

  • fatigue


True self care involves transporting ourselves to a place where we are mentally and spiritually sound. Consider incorporating daily prayer and a meditation pocket into your routine to provide you with a moment of calm and intention before heading out into a busy day.
