Yes it’s that time of year again, when it’s time to make those all important resolutions. There is a lot of controversy around resolutions, and how the majority of people don’t stick to them.
But I still stand by the fact that they are beneficial, so long as they’re achievable and you set them properly into your routine. I have found a fantastic post by Olivia Stumpf on setting and sticking to your 2016 plan, which really put some perspective on my resolutions for 2016. After some careful consideration, here I’ve put together a list of useful resolutions that will help you get the most out of 2016 – without being unrealistic:
0. Start a diary. Knowing how you felt today in a month or so is really important to staying on track and keeping an eye on your development
1. Turn off your phone for 24 hours once a month.
2. Always apologise face to face or in a handwritten letter (NO TEXTING)
3. Clean your shoes weekly/ monthly
4. Read something new every month which grows you as a person
5. Start (or continue to) save and live on less
6. Cook a new recipe once a week
7. Try something new every month – whether that’s a hobby or just a different route to work
8. Travel to a different culture – or if time/ money is a restriction then learn about it.
What are your new year’s resolutions? Have you set a realistic plan to make sure you stick to them?
