Stay Positive this Year

It’s a new year and a new chance to make a happy and successful life. It can be easy to feel down when things go wrong. The Estates at Briggs Ranch is here to help you stay positive and optimistic today and the rest of 2019. Look on the bright side this year with our suggestions.

Commit in Thought and Deed

Think consciously of the things you’re grateful for throughout the day. Then find a way to put that outward. Serve others today. Thank friends and coworkers, give a thoughtful gift, write down a list of things you are grateful for, and reframe your thinking around the bad things that happen to you. If you experience a personal setback, find a way to look past that and encourage yourself to keep going after your goals.

Make Life Exciting

Everyday life can be dull, but trying something new for 30 days can get you out of a rut and make your life what you want it to be. Here’s what Matt Cutts has to say about it: “The idea is actually pretty simple. Think about something you've always wanted to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It turns out 30 days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit or subtract a habit -- like watching the news -- from your life.”

Treat Yourself

We need and deserve more breaks than we probably give ourselves, so give yourself permission to indulge. Take a breather. Make meditation, relaxation, and self-care a habit in your daily or weekly life  Treat yourself this month by going out to your favorite restaurant, park, or sightseeing spot in the San Antonio, TX area.
