Don’t Try to Be Superman or Superwoman

Many of you may have noticed that I have been away from blogging for a while. Well, there was a reason for that. I have been working on several projects that were taking up my time that I needed to take some time off but that doesn’t mean that I forgot about you all.

Having many goals is great because it gives you things to look forward to and something to strive for. However, I can also tell you that trying to do so much all at once will exhaust you faster than you can possibly imagine. So in today’s post, I would like to encourage you, for your well-being, despite all the goals that you may have, don’t try to be superman or superwoman.

This is not to say that you shouldn’t go after your goals or that you should slack on your goals. On the contrary, if you want to be able to reach your goals successfully, you need to not try to do it all at once because rather than add to your well-being, that will take away from your well-being.

“But Aura, there is so much that I would like to accomplish and do” you may say. There is nothing wrong with wanting to do so much and accomplish a lot. The problem is when you want to do it all at once, trying to be superman or superwoman.

My one piece of advice for the beginning of this year is to think of a theme for this year. What is one main theme that you would like to focus on? For instance, mine for this year is weight loss. Yes, ever since my dad’s passing, it has been quite stressful for me and I have been grieving and I did put on some pounds so one of my main themes is self-care which includes in this case weight loss.

Then think of some other things that are also priorities for you that you would like to accomplish and ask yourself why. Write this all down. Why do you want to accomplish this and what does it mean to you? Think about what is one thing that you can do each day to get closer to that goal. This way you know what you can’t compromise with.

So I will give you an example and I will use myself as an example. Since self-care, which includes weight loss, is a priority and theme for me this year, this will include several things such as planning my meals, working out, minimizing stress (stress can cause weight gain), among other things. So as you can see, it’s not like weight loss is the only focus here. There are other things that I will be taking care of because I have that goal of losing weight. By having all these priorities straight, I will know what I can add to my life or take away from my life, what to add to my calender and what not to add.

This will also mean that I will not try to be superwoman. Whatever I can’t get done, I can’t get done and that’s it. By having a main theme for myself, this eliminates me trying to be superwoman and trying to do it all and the benefits of this are many. You avoid stressing yourself too much. You avoid getting sick since stress can suppress the immune system. You avoid feeling frustrated since at times having too much to do can frustrate us and the list goes on.

My highest recommendation when having new years resolution, once again, is to have a theme for this year. What do you want this year to be about for you? What is one top thing that you would like to accomplish? What does accomplishing this goal entails? Write this all down and even know and write down your why. Knowing your why will be your driving force for those times when you don’t feel like doing whatever it is that you need to be doing in order to achieve your goals. Also, having this theme in mind will help avoid you trying to be superman or superwoman.
