The opening weeks of the year represent a time of new beginnings and new commitments.
Those new year’s resolutions were easy to make on December 31. However, setting goals is the easy part. Staying motivated to achieve our goals can be a considerable challenge.
We’re here to help you keep your goals top-of-mind Below are six unique ways you can use custom printing to stay motivated and follow-through to achieve your goals for the new year!
Make a Custom Motivational Poster
Motivational posters are used in schools, gyms, and offices because they provide positive reinforcement at a glance. They are a constant reminder of where you want to go and what you want to do. If you’re pursuing an ambitious goal or trying to honor a significant resolution, you’ll need all the positive reinforcement you can get!
Using custom printing, you can design a motivational poster that displays any image and any text-based message. That means you don’t have to settle for a generic “You can do it!” on the wall. You can create something that speaks specifically to your goals, your struggles, and your most significant sources of motivation.
Carry a Custom Keychain as an On-the-Go Reminder
Many of us make resolutions to give up our bad habits in the new year, but it’s easy to slip and sabotage yourself if you’re not building reminders into your daily routine.
If you’re trying to quit smoking, give up junk food, reduce coffee intake, or take the stairs instead of the escalator, a custom printed keychain is a perfect way to stay focused on and remember your commitment.
Keychains are perfect places for positive reminders, as you bring them with you everywhere you go and often have to fish them out of your pocket just before it’s time to give in to temptation (before you drive through that fast food restaurant, head to the convenience store to buy cigarettes, etc.).
Create a Resolution Preparedness Kit with a Personalized Tote Bag
Keeping your new year’s resolution requires preparedness. If your goal is to go to the gym after work, but you forget to bring your gym clothes, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
If you swore you’d paint more and don’t have your art supplies in a quick grab-and-go spot, you’re unlikely to follow through as you’d hoped.
You can create a “Resolution Preparedness Kit” by printing a custom tote bag that matches your personality and your goals and loading it up with the materials you need to succeed. Then, you can keep your Resolution Preparedness Kit near the door, in your car, or any other place where you’ll be chasing your dreams.
Design a Phone Case That Keeps You Focused
As we enter the new year, many of us are trying to reduce screen time, cut down on content consumption, and focus on the real world around us. Unfortunately, maintaining that commitment is tough when you have to take your cell phone everywhere with you!
One way you can help yourself stick to your promise to reduce screen time without leaving your phone at home is to create a personalized case that reminds you of your resolution.
Depending on your style, your phone case could be a picture of your family that reminds you to stay focused, or a simple declarative message like, “Put your phone down and pay attention!”
Bring Personalized Motivational Materials to the Office
If your goals for the future are about work and professional accomplishments, you need to transform your workspace into a motivational environment.
Your perfect motivational reminder will vary depending on the work you do. For example, if you’re desk-bound, a mouse pad or a custom printed mug could be the perfect minute-to-minute reminder of what you’re working toward and what you need to do to get there.
On the other hand, if you work on the road, a printed water bottle for car trips or a reminder ornament hanging from your rearview mirror could be what you need to maintain focus on your goals.
Custom Printed T-shirts to Spread the Word
If your new year’s resolution involves volunteering or helping in your community, you’ll want to build a support network. A custom printed t-shirt puts your cause front and center and makes a great conversation starter.
Another way to spread the word and recruit allies to support your cause is to create yard signs or flyers to raise awareness and get the ball rolling on doing something great in your community.
