Get your New Year off to the best start
We’re nearly 3 weeks into January and just about settling into 2022. The Christmas decorations have come down, and we’re back in full force, ready for another year of great trades!
We can’t do that without you - our lovely customers. Every trade you make saves items from going to waste and helps us to put them in the hands of someone who really wants them.
As it is a new year, we thought we would share some tips on how to keep any goals and resolutions you’ve set in check. By now, in the middle of January, you’re either going strong or have started to slip up.
Start small and aim high, with sustainable goals
Don’t expect to be fluent in a new language within 3 months, or to save £1000 in 3 days. Mastering or achieving a new goal requires diligence and commitment. However, just 5 minutes of something per day is over 30 hours a year - so try to think long term and practice patience.
Use a habit or goal tracker
Tracking your goals can be a great way to build a sense of achievement. Whether you use an existing app or make your own spreadsheet, it’s a good idea to use a tracker. When it gets to March and your motivation is waning, you can look at it and reflect on why you started in the first place.
Lean on your support network
Do you have friends or family keen to build a new habit or reach that goal they’ve had for years? It’s a great idea to lean on each other for support when you’re feeling unmotivated. Lack of motivation is inevitable at some point in the year, but if you have support and encouragement from people around you, you’re more likely to pick yourself up and get back on track.
Too many books, CDs, DVDs, and games?
If one of your goals is to make more money in 2022, then Ziffit is a great way to do just that. Clear your home of the books and media that you no longer use, and fund your 2022 with the cash you make.
Ziffit is good for you, good for the environment, and good for others.
