This strange feeling
As half of December already passed, Christmas rush is in the full bloom, it is also this special time when you start to have this strange feeling. This undefined concern. I call it New Year’s anxiety.
And I don’t mean here that time flies and here it is almost New Year’s Eve, we’re getting older, maybe I should start a new gym membership stuff. I mean hey, a new year starts, I wonder what will it bring, what should I do with my life kind of thoughts.
Should New Year’s anxiety be scary?
These are good thoughts, but our wired brains (explanation here: Motivation behind Just Redefine) turn them often into total panic-full meltdown.
So what do we do?
We buy planners! Gorgeous, colorful, thick planners with a price tag of an almost one-hour therapy session. That’s not a bad deal because filling out this adorable notebook will take you probably more than one hour (color coding helooo!) so it’s a win
Planning is great! You should be doing that and it’s awesome if you find the way that is efficient, works for your needs and makes you happy.
To don’t feel the anxiety I’d recommend making an old-fashioned brain dump of everything that scares you in this coming year and then make a clear goal vision out of it.
Do you need stickers and feathers in your notebook to do this? I don’t know, you tell me!
If making it pretty makes you happy – you should add more gold to page one! But if changing colors of your favorite gel pens takes you all the time you have for the execution of your plans then maybe re-think your system.

Is it a one-time thing?
Another thing to remember – New Year’s anxiety doesn’t mean that a week after the beginning of January you can forget about everything! Because then, frustration and nervousness come back and hit you twice as hard!
Work on your goals and self-development all year long. Especially if you’re struggling to make things happen in your life and/or business! Key to make your hopes and dreams a reality is to set and track your goals.
You can start now by downloading the printable goal planner below OR in a simple composition notebook if you know how to make it work.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s so easy to lose sight of our goals. It’s a struggle to stay on top of everyday tasks let alone achieve some long-term plans and intentions.
If you’re hoping for being where you thought you would be at this point in your life, now is the best time to work on it!!
