Every year when the new year ticks over, many people around the world start thinking about their new year’s resolutions. After all, a new year is a fresh start and a great way to get started doing those things you’ve always wanted to but never get around to. The most important thing you’ll need in order to be able to keep to your new year’s goals is the reason why: the motivation for wanting to try that new thing, give up that bad thing, or completely overhaul your lifestyle. Without a strong focus on the reason why, you will find yourself easily distracted, giving up, or just simpling failing to see the real benefit to yourself. Here are my top 5 new years resolutions that you will actually want to keep:
1. Learn Something New
I think it’s important no matter your life stage to keep learning and to continue growing. With the Internet, Youtube videos and a wide assortment of amazing apps, you can learn about almost anything for free or very low prices when you consider how much it would cost to get that wealth of knowledge before the invention of the Internet. Free learning apps cover a wide range of subjects and will appeal to almost any one of any age. If you’re searching for a new hobby, why not download a top education app and begin to learn Science from the comfort of your own home.
2. Get Active
If you focus on losing weight, you may find yourself frustrated if your results aren’t quite what you expect one week. You may also find it stressful dealing with normal, healthy weight fluctuations. I personally find fitness, overall energy and health to be much more achievable goals. Getting active is a wonderful way to improve your cardivascular health, energy levels and mood too! Choose a hobby that is active and feels like fun, that way you wont even notice that you’re being healthier and it will be easy to stick to.
3. Track Your Finances
You can’t change what you don’t measure, well maybe you can but it’s definitely a lot harder. Tracking your finances is a sure-fire way to keep on track with them – bad pun intended – and ensure that you’re only spending what you really need to, and to help motivate yourself to be more frugal and mindful with your money. It’s one of the best ways to save money as when you hold yourself accountable to the cent, it’s a lot harder to spend. Whether you’re hoping to save for a big purchase like a new car or even a home, or something a little more manageable such as an overseas holiday, being aware of what you’re spending will make all the difference!
