Some take it seriously. Some bid it farewell just within the hour. Some call it a Second Chance to Dream with Eyes Open. New Year Resolution — no one can deny having made some. People change with time, so do their aspirations. Seriously taken, Happy New Year Resolution is an opportunity to gauge our goals. For the adventurous souls, it is the opportunity to tickle a funny bone or to try something bold.Some are simple, some are exotic – but each is unique in its own way – there is surely a one that would appeal to you! Look Where You Stand – made loads of resolutions last New Year’s Eve? Accessed how far you have stood by them? If not, it is time you did!
If you still feel that the resolutions you made last year and abandoned midway are worth a second shot, give it another chance. Here’s a few tips to make realistic resolutions and stick.
Make realistic ‘do-able’ resolutions – Being realistic means you stick to it instead of weaving dreams in the air, make a resolution that would have significance in and add a meaning to your life.
Monitor Progress – Resolve this year to monitor how far you are holding on to your commitment – it will help you to hang on.
Quit an Addiction – If it does you no good, why stick to it? Addictions are the most sensible habit to kick. It can be anything from drinking or smoking to an unhealthy food obsession or an uncontrolled shopping habit. If needed, seek the help of support groups or professionals. If you have the will, you shall find the way.
Back to School – Learning has no age. Pick up where you left off and continue your education if you are yet to complete or have a dream you wish to pursue.
Fit in Fitness – Secure a future with fewer trips to the doctor – exercise. Select a regime you can stick to. A group activity may add the element of fun to the routine. Lose some flab. But don’t set any strict target, for then the chances are you may get demotivated and quit.
Soak up New Skills – Learning something new and interesting is always fun and a value addition too.
Lose the Loan – Pay off any debt you may have and feel light at heart.
Sack Stress – This sounds easier than it actually is, and there is no magic tip. You have to find your own haven.
Contribute for a Cause – Giving back to the society is the least we can do to make the world a better place to live in.
Treasure your Treasures – Splurge is fun, but saving should be the way of living. Plan with your future in mind. Relax the grip once in a while for that blissful indulgence and open up a savings for yourself. It’s a win-win situation.
Liven up Your Lifestyle – Professional growth is okay, but your personal life requires attention too. Strike a balance. Go out there and regain your social life!
Get Organized – This is the key to make life easy, manage time and live stress free. Make a proper To-Do list, and you are half way there already.
Fun With Family – Bonding with the family will add a treasure trove of memories for you to cherish all your life.
Wowed By Wanderlust – If new places interest you, plan to reach out to them. You may consider including a fund for your trotting in your annual budget.
Adopt a Pet – The devotion, love and loyalty of a pet can never be matched. Feel the bliss by giving one a home.
Step up or Step Down Social Media Activity – If you have been out of touch with your pals and peers, social media would help you get back to the grove. But if your virtual life is affecting your personal life, it is time you remedied that.
A Positive approach to life – Vow to always view the glass to be half full. This will help you solve any obstacle you may face in life.
Speak Your Mind – Chuck the niceties. It is mandatory to say No at times. However remember, politeness pays too. Judiciously decide according to the situation.
Learn a new Language – Language skills are always an added plus.
Patron the Prints – Read more this year! E-books and soft copies are all great and convenient, but nothing compares to the luxury of snuggling up in a cozy spot with a good book. Knowledge is power!
Endear a Diary – Letter writing is a dead art. But expressing feelings is not. And nothing pleases a literary mind more than a few solitary moments with pen and paper. Pour your heart out in a diary.
Pamper yourself once in a while – You deserve it – do whatever your heart desires – but remember not to go overboard.
Overcome a fear or mental block – This will make you feel liberated – it will free your mind of shackles. If you’re afraid of heights challenge yourself to go sky diving… or something more closer to the earth like bungee jumping. Over come your fears and there will be little in life that you cannot achieve.
Be sincere about punctuality and commitments – This is a resolution, if followed, would help you succeed in life and be respected too.
