10 New year’s resolutions you can actually keep
1. Get Healthy / Lose Weight
Getting healthy and losing weight are two of the most common New Year’s resolution ideas. They’re also two resolutions that tend to fail. The key to sticking to this goal is to be clear about what you want to achieve.
2. Travel More
If you spent this year stuck at home, chances are that travelling may be on your list of resolutions. Instead of just leaving it as an empty promise to yourself, make it happen. Plan where you want to go, ask for the time off work, and decide on how much money you’ll need so you can start saving.
3. Eat vegetarian one day a week
This is free and can broaden your diet and skill set – simply grab a couple of the dusty cookbooks we all have on our shelves and start planning meat-free meals for one day a week.
4. Walk to work
Even if your work is too far to walk, try parking a little further away or getting off the bus a stop early. Adding more footsteps to your day is good for your wellbeing, and a brisk walk in the morning will set you up for the day.
5. Save More Money
By saving more money you can drastically improve your life in the long run. Be sure to set a budget and track exactly where you spend your money to stay on top of things. Then, transfer money each week or fortnight into your savings and watch it grow.
6. Try something new every day
A very loose idea, but whether it’s cooking a new recipe, taking five minutes to meditate, or even just walking a different way to work, trying something new everyday will open you up to new experiences and opportunities.
7. Perform one act of kindness every day
Whether it’s checking behind you to hold the door open for someone, moving your bag off a chair for someone to sit in, or even smiling at someone on the street, one random act of kindness each day can go a long way.
8. Get Organised
Becoming more organised in life will not only feel great, but it’ll help you accomplish all those other goals you’ve set. By using a daily planner you’ll never miss a deadline again and by decluttering your home you’ll experience more mental clarity and reduce stress.
9. Quit Smoking
Quitting smoking can be one of the hardest resolutions to stick to. Luckily, there’s now plenty of help around to boost your commitment and keep you on track. Just remember, a setback does not mean you need to give up on your goal! Keep pushing through and stay focused on how much better your life will be without cigarettes.
10. Watch Less TV
If Netflix had you glued to the TV all year long, you may be feeling a little disappointed with yourself. By setting a resolution to spend less time on the couch, you’ll make sure next year is one to be proud of with plenty of accomplishments.
