We wish you a healthy and joyful holiday season. Whether you’re still in lockdown or enjoying the great outdoors, make the most out of it. 2020 wasn’t the easiest year for many of us. People’s lifestyles changed in so many ways and adjust to the whole idea of the “new normal”. A lot of us had to adjust to being at home more than we’re used to, wear masks, put our health at risk via essential work, etc. We’re all in this together and it takes a village to make a difference.
When we reflect on 2020, we should remember the tough times we may have endured. We can try to learn from those experiences and write down what we would do differently to improve ourselves. As New Year’s resolutions are coming around the corner, remember that change is instant and the results of the change take time. It’s the same when someone decides they are going to learn something new or adopt a healthier lifestyle. That decision is instant, but you won’t see the results until weeks or months later.
This year, I (Mario) did not take care of myself when it came to my body and mind. As this upcoming year is approaching us, I already decided to take better care of myself. Nancy and I would like to share this journey with you all. We will be talking about healthy living, recipes, workouts, vacations, and of course, modern minimalists. We really want to be interactive with our audience because we believe we can learn as much from you, as you can learn from us.
Being thankful for the positive things may be especially difficult at this time. We’re focused on things like, not being able to go to an actual gym, not being able to travel, enjoy the outdoors like we used to, and the likes. Spend some time with a journal and reflect on 2020. Whether you got to enjoy a dinner party via Facetime, supported small businesses as much as you could, or found a new hobby, they’re all valid things to celebrate.
With a challenging year, finding things to be thankful for can be tough at first. Here are some of the things we’re thankful for this year:
