Tips on setting your New Year Resolutions
2017 is bidding us good-bye & 2018 is almost upon us.
Just 2 days to the New Year, also a good time to reflect on what you’ve done in the year that’s just gone by. Did you do all that you wanted to? Go everywhere you wanted to? Achieve everything you wanted to?
If you haven’t already set your New Year Resolutions, start now by jotting down some resolves you always wanted to achieve but didn’t manage to.
Here are some handy tips to make the coming year a truly Happy New Year.
1. Personal Achievements
Did you want to travel more? Get Fitter? Ensure you plan well in advance this year. Zero in on the places you want to go to and freeze dates. If you want to read more, start with a book that you have always craved to read. If you want to get fitter, plan your meals now! Join that fitness center now! Remember you don’t have to do everything in 2018- if you want to lose 2 stones, make sure you lose at least 1 in 2018.
Once you have set a resolution, shape your plans around it and set a timeline for yourself. Nothing works as well as deadlines do!
2. Professional Achievements
Start by writing the professional achievements you want to target this year. Keep a little time aside every week to reflect on your list and work towards completing it one at a time.
3. Personal possession
Did you want to get something and have been holding it until now? Start keeping aside some money every month to get that thing you just cannot do without!
4. Social Responsibility
Have you always wanted to do good for the environment and people in need, but didn’t know where and how to start? Keep a look out for products/brands out there that are doing Impact based work. Small steps such as this can make a lot of difference.
5. Bad habits
Is there a particular bad habit that you want to junk this coming year? Our tip here would be to take small steps instead of trying to scrap it at one go! If you’re trying to reduce junk eating- instead of eating junk 3 times a week try and keep it at 1. Reduce buying unhealthy snacks and keep a look out for the healthy snacks in supermarkets.
6. New hobbies
If you want to pick up a new hobby and aren’t sure what yet, you might want to plug this into one of your other resolutions. If you want to get fitter- you may want to take up a sport as a hobby. If you want to increase your knowledge base, you may want to start reading more.
It takes a little time to decide what New Year Resolutions you want to set, we admit, but think how smug you’ll feel next December safe in the knowledge that you’ve struck off some of the things on your list!
