How to make a positive personal statement in 2020

It’s officially 2020! 

In the words of Oprah Winfrey,“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”A new year, especially a new decade, is a great chance for a fresh start, a new beginning and personal reflection. What are some reasons for celebration in 2019 and what might you like to change or improve in 2020?

From your personal style to the food you eat, the impact you make with every decision, like the dawn of a new decade, doesn’t go unnoticed. Your choices help shape your personal brand as well as the world around you, so, whether you decided to make a new year’s resolution or not, you can still take steps that will enable you to live your best and most fulfilling life in 2020!

Trying to wrap your head around how to grow and improve in the new year can feel a little overwhelming, so a great way to start is by writing things down. There are countless planners and journals available on the net that are designed to help motivate you and to keep you on track with your goals. By taking a look at your day-to-day and evaluating what works and what doesn’t, you’ll be able to confidently move forward and cut out anything that’s weighing you down.

Some of the most common new year’s resolutions often have something to do with diet and exercise, so cutting out red meat or fried food is an idea that hopefully isn’t too hard to follow through with. Looking at where the things you’re using, wearing and eating come from, who made them and how they were made is another proactive way to take control of your year and be confident in the decisions that you’re making. For example, looking for fairtrade and eco-friendly options is a simple thing you can do that will ultimately make you feel better about where your hard-earned dollars are going.

Along with hitting the gym, quitting smoking tops many new year’s resolution lists. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that “cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day. On average, smokers die 10 years earlier than nonsmokers.” It’s no wonder 11.5% of the 41 million vapers worldwide are ex-smokers.

While vaping generally attracts less dirty looks than smoking does, there is still so much stigma surrounding the lifestyle choice. In the end, it’s important to respect others, especially considering that we might not know their path of life and the hardships or issues they’ve faced that have led them to their decision.The team behind PHILTER Labs has come together to address the issue of stigma surrounding secondhand smoke and vapor, and have come up with a forward-thinking solution that fits right in your pocket.
