Haven’t got around to your new year’s resolutions? Neither have most of us. Let’s start now!
A “resolution” is a commitment to do something on a regular basis. New Year’s resolutions typically start on 1 January in line with the start of the new calendar year. But really, you can set and review your resolutions any time you like.
The difference between new years RESOLUTIONS and GOALS is that goals relate to a specific achievement Resolutions are commitments to make a change in habits. Resolutions relate to how you want to live your life. To help get you started, I have listed below three of the main categories of resolutions.
HEALTH & FITNESS resolutions
Exercise and nutrition can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health, which ultimately can help you feel better about yourself. For example, you could try adding vegies and protein to each meal. Or start your day with a fibrous cereal and / or some fruit.
Consider trying a new kind of exercise, without worrying if you will be good at it. There are so many different types of exercise to suit your abilities and interests. Take some time to think outside what you are used to.
FINANCIAL resolutions can help you take control of your financial situation and give you more clarity on where your money is actually going. For example, Consider taking some time to focus on budgeting. Consider setting up a budget for your regular expenses, establishing a savings fund for a special purchase or holiday and putting away a certain amount per week or using a mobile mobile app or spreadsheet to help plan and track your expenses.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT resolutions help you feel more fulfilled and grow as a person in various ways. They can help you find purpose, give you a new perspective on life or just bring you more joy.
For example, take up a new hobby just for fun, without worrying if you will be good at it. Join a volunteering group. Or commit to researching a topic of interest for 20 minutes per day.
