As we have already said: Merry Christmas from Barcelona! 🙂

In just five days we are going to finish the year, have you achieved all your challenges?

We usually think about our objectives when we start the year, but it could be so much easier if you do that at the end of this year.

Try to search in your memory, for sure that you can remember some of the challenges from last year, he ones you have not achieved yet. This week could be your last chance.

Trying to do that with a clear deadline and with the motivation of the good vibes of these dates, could be the best way to achieve these objectives once and for all.

This sprint could be, also, a warm-up exercise in order to keep you pedaling for your objectives constantly during your next year.

Try it! Close your year crossing out your objectives, this is a revitalizing way for starting the new year.

Returning to the routine of Barcelona, but by bicycle and with a smile

If, some days ago, we were elaborating a never-ending good intentions list for the new year, surely, with the return to the routine, this list becomes a hill. But don’t give up hope, here you have some tips, in order to don’t throw in the towel.

Achieve our good intentions list is not an easy work. We want to formulate 3 questions, which will help you to reach your goals.

Are your intentions specific enough?

Preparing another sublist with the specific and definite tasks, which we have to achieve in order to reach our goals, will help us to see our way easily.

Do you have deadline?

365 days are a too many days. If we delimit a clear date to every one of our task in our new calendar, we will be able to review all our progresses.

Are these intentions realistic?

The goals, the task and the deadline. Only us are conscious about our limits, but sometimes we err being too much optimistic. If you demand too much of yourself, it is possible that you feel overwhelmed, so, if you have too many intentions, leave some of them for the next year, you have all life for doing that!

Some of the intentions that we think you cannot miss in your list for this new year are:

  1. Going by bicycle to work, in order to improve your environment.
  2. Practicing the ecotourism during your next trips.
  3. Getting fit without wasting money or time (ok, this intention is the same that the first one…) ;P

For this new year, we wish that you achieve all the goals that you have decided.

Some of the intentions which cannot lack in your 2016 New Year list

new-year-s-eve-ceremony-champagne-sparkling-wineIn a few days we will start the new year and, as usually happens, we cannot avoid looking back, reviewing everything that we have achieved this year and prepare a new list of intentions for this next year.

Surely all of the intentions that you have thought of are good and laudable, but, please, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Are these intentions specific enough? Setting up great goals without some specific steps which we need to achieve in order to arrive at the finish line is a typical error which distances us from our objective.
  2. (¿)Have you deadline dates? Using a deadline date in each one of the steps is also a key tool.
  3. Are these intentions realistic? No one knows us better than we ourselves, so, on the base of this, review your intentions again and convert them into something realistic.

Based on our principles, we want to suggest three intentions to everyone, which cannot be lacking in any list:

  1. Go to work by bicycle… You have a lot of tips about how and why you can do this in our blog. Following the previous questions, you can start achieving some steps, such as: the first weeks I will go by bicycle one day, the next ones two days and, in this manner, increase the number progressively. It’s important for you to mark you the dates of the advances on a calendar so that you can see the quick progress.
  2. During the next holidays put the tips about ecotourism into practice: look for new activities which you haven’t experienced yet, in some place of the world that you don’t know and share them with the people of the place.
  3. Get to know more about your city: How many corners of your city don’t you know? Start with local tourism which brings you closer to your roots. It’s cheap, easy and gratifying.

With these three intentions, which each one has to adapt it to his expectations, we will achieve a lot of other intentions that appear on our list: more exercise, more savings, reducing the pollution, reducing the consumption…

And if you have achieved some of them already, plan on a way to improve them and share them with us 😉 We are in contact through the social networks.
