It’s time to start thinking about our goals for the new year, but we want to take a more mindful approach this time around. Here’s how to set mindful resolutions for 2022!

Plenty of us use the excitement of the holiday season and the end of the year to create new resolutions for the year to come. While it can be motivating at first, that inspiration often starts to wane as the first few months go by…and many of us find that we’ve completely forgotten about our resolutions by the end of the year!

As 2022 quickly approaches, we want to change things up a bit and use more mindfulness as we create (and go after) our goals for the new year. Bringing a bit more focus and awareness to our resolutions can help us make the most of 2022! If you’re getting ready to create your resolutions for 2022, here are some ideas to take a more mindful approach. 

How to Set Mindful Resolutions in 2022

Think About How You Want to Feel in the New Year

Before you even begin thinking about the concrete goals you want to achieve in 2022, take a moment to reflect on 2021, and think about how you want 2022 to look and feel. Maybe you want it to be fun, calm, filled with adventure, joyous, exciting, spontaneous, or something else entirely!

Starting with a more abstract idea may help you focus in on more specific, mindful goals to set for the new year. Plus, knowing exactly why you’re going after your resolutions may help better motivate you to achieve them!

Focus on Small, Attainable, and Specific Goals

At the start of the year, many of us create big, lofty goals that we want to achieve. We say we want to spend more time with loved ones, eat healthier, read more, or spend less money on eating out…but we fail to actually create the road map to get there. 

This year, take a more mindful approach to your new year’s resolutions by focusing on the smaller goals, rather than the bigger picture. There’s beauty in enjoying the journey, rather than solely keeping your eyes on the prize. You’ll find that, even if you don’t achieve your larger resolution by the end of the year, sticking to these smaller goals will make you feel more confident in your abilities to make a plan and go after what you want. 

Let’s talk about a few of the most common new year’s resolutions, and the smaller steps you can take to achieve them.

Mindful Resolutions: Eating Healthier

Health-related goals are some of the most common New Year’s resolutions. Healthy lifestyle habits are key for feeling your absolute best and creating longevity, but you can’t just develop these habits overnight. In order to work towards healthier eating (and stick with it in the long-term), start with small, daily lifestyle changes that will transform your habits (and your life!) over time. 

If you’re ready to develop healthier food habits in 2022, our Superfoods Company products can help. Not sure where to start? Let’s go over a few of our favorites.

Eat Healthier in 2022 with Superfoods

First, there’s Superfood Tabs – one of our best products for kicking off a healthy lifestyle! These nutritionist-approved tabs are packed with 15 plant-based superfoods that boost metabolism, curb cravings, increase energy levels, and support the immune system. They’re also great for staying on top of your water intake!

These delicious berry-flavored tabs are particularly helpful for those looking to cut down on sweets. If sugar cravings are getting to you, simply turn to Superfood Tabs to enjoy some sweetness without the guilt!

If you’re starting to work Superfood Tabs into your healthy eating routine, start small with just one tab a day. Over time, work up to two to three tabs for maximum benefits!

Next, there’s the Super Amazing Creamer, which is particularly perfect for those looking to ditch the traditional sugar-packed creamer. This nutritionist-approved sugar-free French vanilla creamer contains 5 grams of collagen per scoop, which improves skin elasticity, boosts metabolism, and supports the joints. There’s also MCT oil, which contains healthy fats that support the brain and body, and skin-hydrating hyaluronic acid.

Work Super Amazing Creamer into your daily life by adding a scoop to your morning cup of coffee. Over time, as you create more healthy eating habits, find ways to work it into nutritious meals and snacks. It’s an excellent addition to smoothies and baked goods (check out our recipes for some inspiration!).

Finally, there is Super Amazing Coffee, which has 12 amazing superfoods that control cravings, beat brain fog, and boost metabolism. For those who already drink coffee, this is one of the best products for people looking to easily work more superfoods into their diet! It’s perfect for that pre-workout energy boost (without the jitters!) or for just starting your day on a positive, healthy note. 

Mindful Resolutions: Staying Connected With Loved Ones

Here’s a scenario we’ve all fallen victim to: you run into an old friend while out and about, say you should grab coffee soon and catch up…and nothing happens. Of course, it’s not out of bad intentions – people are busy, and sometimes getting together with friends or family members falls by the wayside! 

If your mindful resolution for 2022 is to stay connected with your loved ones, here are a few ideas for small goals you can set to actually make that goal a reality:

  • On the first weekend of every month, host a game night with your friends or family members.
  • Start going on a weekly hike or walk around the neighborhood with local loved ones. Pick a specific day and stick with it week after week!
  • Once a month, schedule a phone call or Zoom session with loved ones who live far away.
  • Send one (or more!) hand-written card to a family member or friend each month. 

Mindful Resolutions: Spending Less Money on Eating Out

Eating out (or ordering takeout) is just so easy…it’s hard to fight the urge and just cook at home! Of course, paying restaurant prices for food can add up quickly, and it’s not the best habit if you’re trying to stay on budget. Eating out less (and cooking at home more) can be a daunting goal, but here are some smaller steps you can take to help you spend less money on food in 2022:

  • Develop a list of simple go-to weeknight meals that take less than 20 minutes to make.
  • For those nights when you really can’t be bothered to cook, find some easy, healthy freezer meals that you can have on hand when you’re in a pinch.
  • Head to Pinterest and Instagram to find some amazing food bloggers, or go to the bookstore and pick up an interesting cookbook. Find some recipes that excite you so that you’re pumped to get to work in the kitchen!
  • Set a limit on how many times per month you can eat out or order takeout. As the year goes on and you become a bit more comfortable with cooking at home, aim to eat out even less each month!

Be Kind to Yourself Throughout 2022

There will undoubtedly be times throughout the year when you fall off the wagon. Maybe you indulge on a few too many sweets during your birthday, go over your eating out budget, or aren’t able to do your monthly get-together with loved ones. 

As you go about achieving your mindful resolutions for 2022, keep in mind that perfection isn’t the goal. You might slip up, and that’s perfectly ok! Focus on enjoying the journey and doing the best that you can – you’re still working towards your resolution, and that is something to celebrate and be proud of!
