As the New Year approaches, many people are starting to reflect on what kind of resolution they want to make for themselves. The new year is a fantastic opportunity to make improvements on yourself, upgrade your lifestyle, and be a better version of yourself.
It’s not as easy as creating a resolution for yourself, however. Most people end up giving up on their resolution within the first three weeks. It takes a considerable amount of self-control to follow through with your commitment.
Therefore, here are some great ideas for resolutions, along with tips on how to stick to them.
Statistically, most people admit that they drink more than they would like to. Cutting back on alcohol or getting sober altogether is something that could benefit you in more ways than just your physical health.
Not only will you feel more energized, but you’ll also feel a decrease in anxiety, an increased sense of compassion for others, and much better sleep. Even though most people associate New Years with drinking and partying until midnight, why wake up on the first day of the new year with a pounding headache when you can feel fresh?
If you’ve been considering committing to sobriety for a while, then New Years is the perfect opportunity. Not sure how to stick to it? Consider joining a support group or hanging out with other sober people!
Work Out More
Losing weight is at the top of the list for resolutions for most Americans. Unfortunately, most people don’t end up sticking to a program long enough to lose the amount of weight that they would like.
Therefore, rather than focusing on “losing weight” as your goal, why not change your focus to exercising regularly? Choose one that you enjoy, and chances are that you’ll be more likely to stick to it!
Make More Money
You probably have things that you’d love to have or do but don’t have enough in your budget to make it happen. Making a resolution to bring in more money is a fantastic goal that can help you reach your dreams.
Money may not bring you happiness, but it can make a happier life more accessible than if you had no money. Try to think of creative ways that you could bring in more money this upcoming year. Perhaps you could do some freelance writing, or even babysitting!
You’ve probably heard by now that smoking is bad for you. If you’re finally ready to give up smoking, then the start of the new year is the perfect opportunity.
Not only can it make you a healthier version of yourself in 2020, but it can also save you a significant amount of money!
