As we enter the new year, there is always a whole new sphere of positivity and enthusiasm. Midnight on New Year's Eve is a wonderful time to recall the memories you made in the past year and move to a new year with the best intentions. It also is the best time to make some resolutions and truly, we all have broken more resolutions than we have kept. However, that does not dampen the spirit to make new resolutions. New year, same you but new resolutions that align with your personal goals. As you move into the next year, make doable, realistic resolutions that you can keep up with. If you are looking for some motivation, these resolutions might help.
1. Declutter Your Life
A good look around your home will give you an idea about what you need and things that you don't need. Decluttering your wardrobe, home or kitchen space will make things more manageable and easy for you. It will not only practically make it look spacious but will also allow you to have new thoughts and allow the creative energy to flow unhindered.
2. Alter Your Digital Presence
While we love social media and a positive presence on the same does not harm, however, it is essentially important to be more present in real than reel. Altering one's social media use does not mean cutting yourself off for a good chunk of days, instead, it means reducing some screen time from your day-to-day routine. You can then replace that time with activities that will help you build a stronger bond with your loved ones or maybe can even pick a hobby.
3. Healthy Budgeting
Planning our finances often seems like a daunting task but it can be extremely simple if you simply prioritize your basic needs over wants. You can simply create your own list of long-term expenses and then plan your finances accordingly.
4. Prioritize Yourself
While it is essential to be available for your loved ones, it is extremely necessary to make yourself a priority and put yourself first. As you know from the many safety instructions you've heard while taking a plane ride, take care of yourself first so you may be well enough to be there for others. Treat yourself to a solo date or movie and learn from that experience. Maintain boundaries and learn to manage stress and anxiety which eventually will help to bring a positive change in your lifestyle.
5. Quality Over Quantity
Whether it is your social circle or your health, choose quality. Be around people who let you grow and inspire you to be a better person in life. The same goes for your health. Instead of doing a crash course or taking the shortest route to achieve your health goals, maintain a lifestyle that you can be consistent with. A healthy, well-maintained lifestyle is the more sustainable life is the best one to lead.
