To make or not to make resolutions? Some people find them incredibly inspiring and others find resolutions debilitating and unmotivating. Instead of deciding to “work-out more” or “spend less,” make more concrete resolutions and frame them as goals you wish to accomplish. This tends to be more successful. Below are some resolutions (or goals) you might want to try out for a happier and healthier 2021.
- Cook a new (healthy) meal every month: Make this a fun monthly activity with your friends and family or as a form of self-care by yourself. Cooking at home is more affordable than eating out and by cooking a new healthy meal each month, you are expanding your personal healthy recipe stash each month. This also prevents you from falling into a rut of not knowing what to make and getting bored with meals.
- Read one new book a month: This is an opportunity to satisfy your curiosity, learn something new or simply relax with a fun easy read. This will also help you disconnect from screens and from the world around you.
- Prioritize mental health: If you have not already, make your own mental health a priority this year. Start journaling, learn how to meditate, start going to therapy. Any change you can make to prioritize your mental health, do that.
- Try Something New Once a Month: Whether it is a new activity, a new form of being active or a weekend seminar you have been dying to attend, if it’s something new, it is fair game for this resolution. It also does not have to be expensive or cost any money at all.
Share your resolutions with someone so you can keep each other accountable. A new year, a better you.
