2014 is almost over. Crazy, just crazy! Where are our jetpacks and flying cars already???
No matter how this year went, there is always room for improvement right? Below check out the 31 ways you can make 2015 just a bit better. But first…
We’ve got tons and tons of offerings for you this Winter at BT Basketball. Check out all the tabs up top of this page. From first graders (Little Ballers and Holiday Clinic) to Middle Schoolers (Winter Sessions and Holiday Clinic) to High Schoolers (Insider Program), we have something for every age. We are excited to help you get STRONGER as the season goes on. Also visit out Videos page to check out some helpful tips for your skills and mentality. Here are a few of the new ones…
Ok let’s get to it! Please comment and add to this list!
-Smile more (with your friends, with your family, with yourself, with strangers. If nothing else, people will wonder why you’re smiling so much. Which will provide you with entertainment. Which will make you smile)
-Get outside more (even in the cold weather, go take a quick stroll. Something about nature and fresh air that clears a foggy head)
-Eat more fruits and veges
-Eat less crapola
-Drop the macho stuff and tell the people that you love, that you love them. Life is short
-Sleep better (aim for 7-8 hours of restful sleep. Kill the devices and start powering down the mind before bedtime)
-Be more grateful, appreciative and thankful (not just during the holidays)
-Look at things in more of a positive light (we all choose exactly how we react and see everything that happens. Certainly often easier to look at things in a negative light. Try the sunny side a little more often)
-Watch a movie that you know is incredibly inspiring to you
-Watch less garbage TV and listen to more kick a$$ tunes
-Do something for someone without any expectation whatsoever of something in return
-Over tip (even when the service doesn’t deserve it)
-Say hello to random people (this is normal for Southerners, yet foreign to most of us above the Mason Dixon line. I mean really, ever been to the south and everyone is so kind and friendly and we all think it’s so strange. Maybe we are the strange ones!)
-Take 5 deep breaths in a row
-Throw anyone that has a negative influence in your life overboard (without a raft or anything that will allow them to climb back into the boat of your mind)
-Challenge yourself in a way that only you will know if you completed said challenge (now go make it happen)
-Read more good stuff (doesn’t include People magazine. Take 10 minutes or so a day and read something educational, motivating, inspiring, or fun)
-Find something in the clutter of life that is yours and yours alone (something that makes you feel truly alive, that nobody can take from you)
-Cultivate that passion, and make a career out of it
-Laugh, a lot (at yourself, with others. Enjoy life, enjoy the people and situations in it)
-Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in ages
-Be a good friend
-No, be a great friend!
-Find something to be disciplined at, even for a short time (physical activity, food come to mind)
-Say please and thank you more often
-Give little regard to what others think of you
-Find out who you truly are and embrace it
-Go to a concert
-Give someone a hug (not a one handed bro hug. A full on, double armed, please let me go I can’t breath hug!)
-When you catch yourself saying to someone “I’m too busy”, honestly evaluate if you really are (ever seen the movie Yes Man?)
-Be committed to enjoying life more this year!
Here’s to finishing off 2014 strong and having the best year of your life in 2015! If you would be so kind, please share this with anyone you think may benefit!
