    Self-care resolutions for finding happiness in the new year

    Every single year, we celebrate the first day. January 1st is a day to be happy because right in front of you is a whole year stretched ahead and it’s totally blank.

Specifically, I think you should be considering laying out a new path for your career. Forget about where you were last year and look towards new challenges or choices. If you’re not happy with the job you’re currently working in, change it. If you want to try your luck in a completely new industry, explore it. There is nothing holding you back except the failure to attempt a change. Once you take the first step, though, you might find it easier than you thought. Of course, it’s all very well suggesting that you get out there and find a new career, but how do you actually go about it? What are the steps that you will need to take? (more…)
