Dr. Swisher, How can we have a good New Year?  Milagro, Toledo

Hello Milagro.  Thank you for asking this question and Happy Nee Year’s Day to you and all of our readers.   

It is possible to have a great Nee Year if we make the quality decision to be intentional about it.   Isn’t is so easy to just allow one day, one month, one year to simply roll into the next without much difference or change? This can be the point in time that differentiates that habit and creates a new reality.  

Here are a few tips:

  1. Start and end each day with Positive affirmations. You could say things like “I expect today to be a great day” or “God believes in me and I believe in myself” or “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
  2. Practice gratitude every single day. This will boost your mood and improve your outlook on life. Express that appreciation regularly and you will display a smile that will become infectious.
  3. Practice acts of kindness as often as possible. Deliberate actions rooted in kindness is a meaningful way to ensure a great New Year for yourself and others.
  4. Make a commitment to attend Church at least weekly. This will give you the physical and spiritual strength to make it through each day with hope. I invite you to Worship with us in any of our 5 in person services each weekend; Saturday @ 4:30pm and Sunday @ 8:30, 9:45, 11:00am and 6:00pm.
