Each New Year, you have a great opportunity to start everything over. Go ahead and change your life. Turn over a new leaf and forget about your past mistakes. Be responsible, take resolutions and take control. Besides, have you thought of your New Year’s resolutions? If you haven’t thought of them yet, check out my list of 11 important New Year’s resolutions and start making your list right now.
1. Read more
You know that reading has many benefits. For instance, you’ll become much wiser when reading and it’s certainly an enjoyable thing. Try to read as much as possible next year. Perhaps, your family or friends could advise you a few nice books and you could either purchase it or take them in the local library. Occasionally, your close people and you can prefer different kinds of books. That’s why you need to find out which exactly books you would like to read, what will also simplify making your list. Decide to read several books until the end of this year. Having aims like that will assist you to concentrate and achieve such resolution with having no problems.
2. Quit a bad habit
Do you have any features that your family does not like? Maybe do you bite your lovely nails if nervous? Or perhaps, you often come home a bit drunk? Now you have a wonderful chance to give up all your worst habits. You can manage to do it for your close people if not for yourself personally. Remember it and you will really have a goal.
3. Spend more quality time with your family
You have to understand that you shouldn’t prefer your friends to your family. They also miss you. Try to pay more attention to your loved ones and share as much time as you can with them. You should certainly go and visit your parents during the festive season if they live far away from you, and try to save for the flight ticket beforehand.
4. Learn to play an instrument
Do not do nothing when you’re enjoying to your favorite tune, just take a drum set or a guitar or whatever instrument you like, and figure out how to use it. I am sure you agree that it’s better that just loiter. Focus on your lessons and in no time you could write your own music. Don’t you think it’s great?
5. Make someone smile
Promise to yourself that you will try to make someone laughing each day. What you can do is either to assist your kids with their homework, prepare a romantic dinner for your hubby, wash the dishes for your mom or let an old woman sit on your seat if there are no vacant seats on a bus. Do everything with all your heart. When doing so, you will give a little bit of your love to others and will also feel happy yourself.
6. Get into a relationship
One of the best New Year’s resolutions, if you are alone, is to get into a relationship next year. Try to meet the man of your dreams, and simply take your time. Never get into a relationship if you do not want to. You have to do a difficult job but be sure that everything will come. All you need to do is to get acquainted with a nice man before making any first steps. Also, everything can be much worse: you could simply meet an annoying guy who couldn’t leave you alone. Do not be in a hurry, make a right decision and be happy.
7. Learn a new language
Scientists proved that it’s easier to learn new language if you are young not old. That’s why choose such language which you always wanted to know. Keep in mind, you should speak a lot since when you don’t do it, your knowledge won’t be fluent. And if you feel it’s not yours, do not even start to learn a language. One more thing is that anyone who speaks several languages almost never has Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why don’t waste your time, just learn!
8. Count your blessings
You shouldn’t be sad this year. Try to be satisfied with what you already have. Laugh more. Remember, when you are upset, that there are people on this Earth much more miserable than you. Tell yourself that you will stop whine and try to remain calm when irritated. Be quiet since being worried won’t solve the problem. Learn to be grateful for what you already possess. Try to smile when you have worries, show that everything is fine. It’s an art to achieve it.
9. Save more
I think it’s useful to make such decisions but it can be difficult not to spend your money on a lovely outfit that you have just seen in a store. Many women spend lots of cash on unnecessary things, which they don’t even need. Try to be more economical next year. Take not so much money when go shopping. And never take your credit card if you need to go out for a couple of minutes. If you want to purchase a garment you are very fond of, think twice if you do a right thing. When you think once again, you will buy nothing and will do much better for your budget.
10. Be honest and straightforward
All people know it’s vital to tell the truth. But, why we keep lying then? Decide to be always sincere and gullible, treat people like you would like to be treated. Never be afraid to tell what you think. Just be fair. When you have bad relationship with your dream guy, be straight and end it. And if you are fond of somebody, make a move. Come up to the man and tell him about your feelings since he is not a mind reader. Be brave.
11. Get into shape
Have you gained some weight this year? Or do you think you are not in a perfect shape for coming holidays? Take a resolution and go to gym next year. But it’s better to start now and exercise until you lose several pounds. Work out with a trainer if it’s not too costly or go running each morning. Follow the diet to look more beautiful and refuse eating junk food. Forget about enjoying your favorite burgers too. And if you want to be in shape, you will also need to give up oily dishes. Have it sometimes but remember to eat just a little bit. Choose only healthy meal. Eat as much veggies and fruits as you can. Prepare your veggies in various ways, so you won’t have to change diets. Additionally, pay to the fitness most of your attention.
What are you waiting for? Go and start your life over. Time is precious. I wish you to enjoy a great next year. What are your New Year’s resolutions?
