Making New Ones or Using Common New Year Resolutions
New Year has arrived and we usually make a list of these common New Year resolutions, as some kind of guidance how to lead and improve our lifestyle next year.
At this time of the year, some people are into deep retrospection – they are reevaluating their life choices, questioning themselves whether they chose well or not.
Almost always, reading these common New Year resolutions are the perfect opportunity to make changes, and try not to postpone them for the next week, next month, or perhaps when winter starts.
Now is the perfect timing to sit down and prepare a new (or updated) list of New Year resolutions and important lifestyle changes you want to make so badly.
If you are looking for effective ways of changing your life for the better, be sure to find tons of useful information here.
So let’s start.
Get in shape
This is always on the list, but rarely people are fulfilling this. Not having enough time and lack of strong will are the most common excuses not to get in shape as planned.
Don’t make excuses anymore.
For once, try to stick to this and let your endurance levels change.
Be persistent and don’t give up on this so easily.
Start eating healthier food, or less food
Will you do it this year, or you’ll forget all about it?
Improve your concentration and mental skills
For start – you can enroll to a yoga class. It can really help boosting your mental clarity and mental skills.
Just be patient because this will happen only on a long run.
There are no shortcuts here.
Meet new people
It is always good to meet new people, to learn different cultures and to expand your horizons. You’ll see that we are all humans desiring the same things in life.
We are all the same.
Become more confident
If you want to boost your self-confidence, you have to face all your fears and push yourself into new things.
As long as you run away from everything that scares you off (the unknown especially), you won’t be as confident as you would like you to be.
Take a chance and risk.
You’ve got nothing to lose.
Earn more money
If you’re not satisfied with your current job, you can always start a new adventure by seeking a new one.
Do some math of what you need and how you can achieve it.
But, don’t rush into this if you haven’t thought it over well enough.
Become more polite
If you reach up to the boiling point that sets your awareness level on, keep the consciousness about it. If you have realized how many flaws you have, it is about time to polish them out.
Becoming a better person is the best thing you can do for yourself this year.
Is this possible?
Not likely if you don’t know how to control it. Self-control is something you can learn through life experiences.
You’ll reach up to the point when you won’t react as you would normally, and that is the moment when you have taken control over your emotional reactions.
Think first, then react.
Of course you can’t always avoid stress, but there are techniques you can learn from.
Learn to be happier with your life
Well, this is something you need to understand first.
When you’ll get older, you’ll realize that everything that was disturbing you at younger age, is meaningless now.
People tend to worry about stupid things, but they realize it when its too late.
Appreciate small things in life. They give more pleasure than you’ll ever know, but this understanding comes with ageing(unfortunately).
Be happy of what you have, strive higher-but you should be aware that “reaching out for the stars” is a difficult path to walk on.
Ask someone famous – they will give you the best lessons about it.
Get more quality sleep
Sleep is a period of the day when your mind, body and soul rejuvenate. By skipping this, you easily get anxious and tiredness will take its toll.
Always try to get some quality sleep, so you can keep your mind sharp and your body refreshed for the forthcoming day, and face all challenges along the way.
Why do you want to ruin your health?
If you are nervous or anxious– go to the gym and shoot out all that bad energy within.
Watch less TV
If possible, don’t get glued to the couch in front of your TV, and try to lead more active life. Go in nature for the weekends, or walk on the beach.
Do whatever it takes to get yourself out from that couch.
Reading is always expanding your horizons. Your spirit is growing and going to directions you’ve never known.
Not to mention how much you’ll improve your vocabulary.
Speak less and say more.
Dress with a style
You don’t need too much money for this. You can always look classy and like a lady (or gentleman) with less expensive things.
Learn how to make good outfit combinations and you’ll be always trendy.
Spend more time with the people that matter
As much as you can. Life is short and no one knows its own expiration time.
Therefore, don’t waste any precious time.
Be more with your loved ones.
Change drinking habits
Moderation is always the best answer to everything, so, if you can follow it – it will be better for your own sake.
Become debt free
As soon as possible.
Don’t feed the banks with interest rates.
Starting right now.
You’ll get old soon enough, and you’ll be sorry you haven’t been saving money when you needed to.
Do it for your own financial security and independence, rainy days and for your retirement days.
Be financially smart!
Learn a new language
This is a true blessing, and if you do this, try to visit the country whose language you’ve learned, and examine your new communication skills.
The more languages you know – the wealthier human being you’ll become.
Volunteer and give more to charity
If you have surplus money, donate.
Make someone happy.
Being a giver is highly rewarding – you’ve helped to someone in need.
Who knows…maybe one day you’ll need help too.
This is the hardest thing in life to do.
Are you capable of it?
Adopt a cute pet
If you have a chance and means, adopt a pet – don’t buy one. There are so many pure souls that need a decent home.
Do this please.
It is a true blessing for a home.
And the animal.
Learn to de-clutter and become more organized. If you have old wardrobe – you can always donate.
Clean your home on a regular basis.
Make more free space.
Feng Shui your home!
Travel more and see the world
If you have possibilities to do it – don’t waste any time. See the world and spread your wings.
There is so much to learn and see.
Learn how to cook
Your family will bless you for this.
See your doctor more often
Keep your health in check – more regularly.
Give yourself a whole new perspective on life, and go to directions you have never been.
You may get surprised.
Stop being late
Punctuality is a virtue that is held in high regard in our society.
Being on time is a mark of a true professional, a dependable friend and caring partner, so it is a good idea to pick up few tricks how to organize your time.
Get over your ex
Healing a broken heart is a process that takes time, but you need to get over your ex.
Learn how to control your emotions
Learn self-control. It can get you through tough emotional times.
Start being more responsible
Always think before making a decision.
Take responsibilities for your actions, and don’t blame no one for your failures.
Spend less time on social media
Live communication is way much better than typing messages on your social media profiles.
If you are social media addicted – try do “cure” yourself this year.
Schedule a meeting with a friend, rather than talking on various social network platforms.
Become more romantic
A few romantic gestures can keep the passion burning. It can be fun even if you’re not the most romantic type.
Remember important dates
Make an effort to remember birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates.
You will make someone happy, you know?
Become more social
Try to meet new people and find out interesting things, but you can also develop leadership skills and learn to work in a team.
Even if you are an introvert, there are ways to become a an active community member.
Start being more creative
Start thinking outside the box.
Let your creativity out .
Find what inspires you.
Follow your instincts and your gut feeling.
Face your fears
Face fears and don’t run away from them, otherwise you might lose your confidence which can become serious obstacle in life.
Start writing a book or journal
Gather your thoughts at one place.
You’d be surprised to know just how many people out there have an interesting story to tell, but lack of confidence and skills, are preventing them to write their thoughts down.
Not to mention how soul relieving is to write down your problems on a piece of paper.
Keeping a diary is so useful thing to do.
It is a heavy thought reliever.
Stick to good healthy habits
The last but not the least important point to mention is that all those positive changes you want to make, have to be permanent.
You will need to stick to the habits you have adopted, until they become your natural part.
That is the only way to achieve true self-improvement.
Well, there you have it – the most common New Year resolutions people write down and try to follow.
Next year, occasionally, check through these common New Year resolutions, and make some new long-term changes in your life.
If you fulfill half of them – you are on a good way of great self-improvement and re-invention.
The only thing we can say is: adopting new or pursuing common New Year resolutions is hard, but, no matter what, always strive to improve yourself and always take actions.
It is the only way to change yourself for the better.
And at the end, we can only wish you a Happy New Year and don’t forget to pursue your dreams EVER!
