Another year is about to end, feels like just yesterday when we all were counting down to 2021, hoping for a year when everything will be alright and back to normal. Well, that did not exactly work in our favor, and there is no guarantee that the coming year will be any different. No matter how much we want to hear otherwise, despite vaccines, this global pandemic is going to be around for a long time. However, it does not mean you have to live in fear. With the right precautions, you can enjoy your new year and even make this year the time when you finally make some positive changes in your life through new year resolutions. You are thinking that “new year resolutions never work!” They do work if you make realistic ones that do not require overnight life alteration. But if we take baby steps, then it doesn’t seem like such a herculean task. So to help you out, here is a list of all the small and positive but effective new year resolutions you can take to bring huge changes in your life.
Workout To Feel Good-
Usually, when we hear the term “workout”, we start thinking about attractive models with huge biceps, a stomach full of abs, and toned muscles without realizing how toxic it is. Workout is supposed to make one healthy, fit, and feel good not as a showoff. Mostly when someone starts working out they start with an ambition to achieve that body in mind. This time, take a resolution to workout according to your body time, stamina, and most of all to feel healthy and good. Trust me, it will take the pressure, and working out will seem so much more fun.
Volunteer For Social Welfare-
Nothing can replace the feeling you get when you help someone in need. Irrespective of what anyone says, a little kindness goes a long way! So instead of waiting for a big opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, do some volunteer work for the homeless, orphans, or others who are not as fortunate as you. Trust me, your entire perspective on life will change.
While being busy with our regular lives, we often forget to see how fortunate we truly are. This new year, resolve to count your blessings and show gratitude at every chance you get. You can start on the new year itself, by sending new year gifts online to all those whom you value the most. Being grateful is essential for a happy life and this year try to be as happy as you can.
Drink More Water-
This may seem absurd but trust me it is important. Drinking water is an essential part of self-care, and we often overlook it. Being hydrated can eliminate many toxins from your body and will make you feel lighter and better, not to mention you will have great and shiny skin.
The worst thing you can do in your life is stay put in one place and ignore exploring, travelling is important for you to grow as a person. Understandably, you might be low on budget, and traveling is an expense, therefore, this new year, make a resolution that you will start small, explore a nearby place, go somewhere you have never been to even if it’s for a night or a weekend but do get out of your comfort zone, trust me, once you start exploring- the sky’s the limit.
Be Kind To Yourself-
This new year, do an exercise- Sit down and think about yourself and notice in what way you are thinking, are you rude? Are you forcing yourself to multitask? Are you disappointed in yourself for failing a few times or not succeeding
as much as you wanted? Do you measure your worth according to how productive you have been? If yes, then you have to make a change, right away! Be kind to yourself, that is the biggest new year gift you can give to yourself. Know that it’s okay to fail as long as you get up again, remember you are worth way more than the things you do, and be proud of who you are the way you are. This is something that may take time and great restraint on your part, but once you do it, you will feel like the best version of yourself, happy new year!
