It’s nearly the end of the year, which means it’s time to think about setting some New Years resolutions and goals for the upcoming year. I always like to set myself some resolutions, with some bigger goals, and some very achievable tasks so I can try and complete them during the year.
New Year’s Resolutions Everyone Needs To Make
I know it’s pointless setting myself a goal like ‘saving money’ as there’s no specific focus. I am much more likely to smash my goals if I break them down into more manageable tasks. Instead of saving money, you could set yourself a target of saving £50 every month into a jar or savings account so you can see what you’ve achieved with the goal throughout the year.
I’ve got a selection of New Year’s resolutions which I think we could all choose for our own resolutions, so keep on reading to see my recommendations….
- Self Care– Practice self care and regularly give yourself time to unwind and destress to avoid burnout
- Consider giving back – this could be by making charitable donations, donating clothes you longer want to charity shops, or even volunteering your time. It’ll give you a massive sense of pride, whilst helping those in need.
- Be Present – it’s so important to live in the present moment and enjoy life as it is today, without worrying about the past or the future. By worrying about things you can’t control (like your past) will only take the enjoyment out of today.
- Spend More Time With Family and Friends – this one is global crisis permitting of course. Over the last ten months, life has been very different and we’ve potentially seen a lot less of our loved ones. Once life regains a little normality in 2021, we should appreciate those we have in our life and try to live life to the fullest.
- Get More Sleep – I think we’re all guilty of spending too much time on social media or technology in general in the evenings. Try and give yourself a digital detox 30 minutes before going to bed, it’ll help with trying to unwind and fall asleep and you’ll be less likely to stay up scrolling TikTok or Instagram.
- Forgive Yourself – we are all guilty of being too harsh on ourselves if we’ve dropped the ball or missed a deadline or target. There’s no point beating yourself up over something you’ve done in the past, and it won’t change what happened. Try focusing on the here and now, and building on the new.
I love the new beginnings and fresh start vibes you get with a new year, and you don’t need to set yourself any resolutions in order to enjoy the new year. After a very challenging year, let’s hope 2021 is a better year for everyone.
