We are all excited to move forward into the year 2021!

As we get ready to ring in the new year, make sure it is rooted in self-care and positivity with a little help from best-selling author and DJ, Ty Alexander.

Driven by her desire to be the very best version of herself and inspire women around the world to do the same, Ty invites you to welcome in the next year of your life through the practice of gratitude. She says that 2020 forced stillness and change to shine in us all. So, as you head into 2021 think about the flow of your life and focus on creating joy and happiness. Follow her tips outlined here to goal setting, self-actualization and celebration.

Set goals. When setting your goals, ask yourself is your goal SMART: Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Relevant and Time Bound. Use this formula to get clear about your goals while also promoting motivation and focus. And be sure to add in your intention. For example, if your goal is to lose 50lbs, then make your intention to live a more-healthy life through food choices and movement. This gives context and importance to goals. You may even want to change some of your goals once you’ve written out your intentions.

Start journaling. Write out your big, audacious goals and then go back and outline the steps you need to take to complete them. Be extremely specific in those steps. Think of every detail needed to complete the goal. This practice releases the anxiety around the big goals and allows you to think realistically about them. 

Celebrate you. Raise a glass to who you are now and who you are becoming. To make this moment really special, mix up a unique cocktail like the KORBEL Cranberry Mimosa. Fill a champagne flute with cranberry juice and KORBEL Sweet Rosé. Made from both red and white grapes, this rosé has bright fruit flavors and aromas of raspberry and vanilla that level up with the cranberry. Then make this toast to you a tradition—as you meet each goal in 2021, celebrate it with a signature sip.
