Resolutions are meant to be broken. But sticking to the New Year resolutions can make the coming year more pleasant and hassle free. To make 2016 pass in a flow we need to make resolutions and keep them. Thus we can progress to live a more relaxed and peaceful life and rectify the mistakes done in past years.
1) Socialize more
It should come as natural, but it doesn’t. Socializing includes spending more time with your extended family. Be yourself. Don’t be afraid to express your opinions. Not everyone is born with great social skills, but they can definitely be developed. If you learn to socialize fairly well, you can make a great group of close friends. You have a wider group of colleagues you trust. At the least, you’ll have a social network that will keep you from being too lonely and help you when you need to talk.
2) Work reasonable hours
Long work hours, no exercise and not spending time with family contributes to stress. Working over 40 hours a week makes you less productive. Shorter work hours are actually more productive. They increase the morale and motivation of workers. In practice, we could achieve the same standard of living with fewer hours of work. Ultimately, the reduction in working time is about creating more opportunities for people. They realise their potential in all manner of activities including within the work sphere. Working less, in short, is about allowing us to live more.
3) Eat well and stay healthy
Switching to a healthier diet can be tricky when we are surrounded by cheap junk food. But with a good amount of determination you can develop healthier eating habits. Learn to control emotional eating. Be aware of reasons for diets to fail, make use of these tricks and have a look at these awesome and healthy recipes.
“Not all those who wander are lost”- J.R.R. TOLKIEN
It’s tempting to get out and see more of the world. Especially if you feel stuck in your rut or you haven’t been anywhere lately. Plunge into some unfamiliar corner of the world and put yourself at the mercy of serendipity. Learn some street smarts, be awed by beauty and sobered by ugliness. Wander wide-eyed, eat strange things and befriend strangers. We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. Traveling teaches you an adventure.
5) Learn something new
Just sitting around all day won’t get you anywhere. It is much better to use your free time in a constructive manner and pick up new skills while having fun at the same time. Learning something new is a good way to keep your brain sharp as it ages. You could learn a new language, musical instrument or a new sport. Find out how to learn new skills and hobbies in a short time.
6) Be kind and learn to let go
Good manners have always been an important part of a civilized society. They make it easier to connect with others. Avoid offending people. Ensure that others perceive you as a good and trustworthy person. So know the etiquette and deal with rude people in the right way and learn how to say no. If you have a big fight with someone and fall out or get hurt over a small issue, you lose a friend and remain sad and bitter. Forgiveness is a much healthier way to deal with issues that should be left in the past.
7) Stay clean
There are a lot of slobs out there who can’t really get their stuff organized.
A cluttered desk or chaotic home will affect your productivity and even your mood. So it helps to clear the clutter, clean your house and lead a tidier and more organized life. When you get organized, there will be more time to spare and things will start falling into place. Get rid of the stuff that are unnecessary and contribute those to the needy.
