2021 has been the year of the Ox on the Chinese zodiac, and its characteristics include diligence, dependability, strength, and determination. Now it’s time to get ready for 2022, the Water Tiger, one known for its strong sense of self-esteem and learning ability. The Tiger is a symbol of strength and braveness, qualities that we should all embody for this upcoming year.
That being said, here are 4 new years resolutions to empower yourself this 2022!
1. Create a vision board (or update it if you already have one)
Celebrities including Oprah and Ashley Graham have talked about how having a vision board has helped them manifest their dream lives. Simply put, a vision board is a tangible collection of pictures, quotes, and words that visually affirm your goals and desires. It helps enact the power of visualization and manifestation. You can make a 2022 vision board with goals you want to accomplish for the year or make a more general entire-life vision board. This helps keep focus, inspiration and work hard to achieve those dreams!
2. Expand your network
As social beings, it is inevitable to avoid seeking help. After all, we all need a little push to tackle our objectives. Invest time in expanding your network, this can open doors to new friendships, ideas, and opportunities. Join FB groups, webinars, community groups lead by inspiring women, you’ll definitely learn and meet people personally and professionally.
3. Support local businesses led by women
There are tons of small local businesses run by women, you’d be surprised! As female entrepreneurs having the support of other women is one of the biggest drives. Try being more concise about whom you buy your goods and services from and do a little search on women-lead businesses either online (Etsy, Facebook market, Instagram) or on local market shops. One of the best things we can do as women is support and cheer one another!
4. More self-love
As we enter the year of the Water Tiger it is a good idea to feel like one and give time to ourselves. Loving ourselves is a big process and journey with lots of ups and downs, but as we grow we learn that keeping ourselves as a priority is good for everyone. When we heal within, we heal the outside as well. Try activities that help boost your mind, body, and soul such as exercise, a change in style, healthy eating, working on a new project, planning a girls’ trip or retreat to nature, and above all celebrating every success no matter how big or small it might seem!
Ladies, get ready for 2022 because it is going to be a great year! Feel the power of the tiger and don’t be scared to dream, work hard and believe you were made for great things. The world is yours, Happy New Year!
