The new year offers you an opportunity to improve yourself or your life in some way. It feels like a fresh slate for you to try new things. But sometimes it can be difficult to work out where to begin. Below, we explore some new year’s resolutions to try.
Eating healthier is a common resolution to try and it can give you a real boost in your day-to-day life. Sure, it’ll require you to be a little creative with the dishes you cook – and you’ll need to put more effort in. But the result is that you’ll feel better both physically and mentally. You can even try and make it more difficult for yourself by going vegetarian or vegan for the start of the year.
Changing how you exercise can also make for a great resolution. You could work towards a specific goal such as running a marathon or lifting a certain weight to give you further impetus. If you’re out of practice it can feel a little daunting. But there are plenty of apps and ideas out there to help you become more active in the new year.
Visit new places
Visiting new places and broadening your experiences can be a great idea for the new year. This can be as ambitious as travelling around a different continent, or you can get to know your home country better – as long as you visit with an open mind you should gain something from the interaction. Just remember to plan ahead and book your train tickets or air travel in advance!
A random act of kindness every day
Another option is to try a random act of kindness every day. This doesn’t have to be something substantial each time; just little, thoughtful acts. You might find that this puts you in a better mood and can help your relationships improve.
Break a record
Sometimes an ambitious resolution can give you something truly exciting to work towards. Breaking a record is one such idea. Take a look at your hobbies and see if there’s any record you can break. This could be something like a personal best or you could even try and investigate some world records!
The new year is the perfect time to try something new. Just pick one of the options above and see if they improve your everyday life!
