New Year’s Resolutions To Make This Your Best Year Yet
Set the resolution to do good for others in the upcoming year. After all, you won’t just be benefiting those you help; you’ll also be benefiting yourself. Volunteering can give you a sense of purpose, increase your self-esteem, and make you happier. In 2018, get a helper’s high by volunteering.
Plan a vacation. Visit a country you’ve always wanted to see.
Keep a Journal
Journaling is a powerful life tool. It can help you to organize your thoughts, plan how to achieve your goals, and get in touch with your true feelings and wants. Making this one of your New Year’s Resolutions will help you make things happen.
Be Kind to Yourself
You may not be able to control how kind other people are to you, but you can always control how kind you are to yourself. This upcoming year, set the resolution to believe in yourself, respect yourself, and treat yourself well. Be a good companion to yourself.
Bring More Peace Into Your Life
I think I can safely say that we all want more peace in our lives. And by this I mean more inner peace or serenity. Most of all resolve to bring more peace into your life in the year that’s about to begin by accepting what is, practicing non-judgement, and teaching your mind to become still.
Become More Confident
Confidence can be defined as your belief in your own abilities and in your capacity to get what you want. In turn, the importance of confidence cannot be overstated. Confident people are happier, more relaxed, more likely to take chances, and more likely to succeed.
Fortunately, there are ways to become more confident. These include giving yourself credit for what you do, cultivating your inner advocate, and taking consistent action toward the achievement of your goals. Most of all make 2018 the year your confidence soars!
If you didn’t achieve your goals this year, procrastination was the likely culprit. Make 2018 the year you stop procrastinating and start getting things done. Consequently, this will help you to ensure that you won’t be sitting there at the end of next year wondering why you never got around to working on your goals.
Be More Grateful
If you haven’t climbed aboard the gratitude bandwagon yet, this is the year to do it. There are studies that show that gratitude can make you 25% happier. Being grateful will also help you to overcome adversity, improve the quality of your sleep, and allow you to get along better with others. Most of all for 2018, resolve to be more grateful.
Read More Books
I read several books in 2017, and I’m glad I did. The time I spent reading was enjoyable, and I feel a sense of accomplishment since all of the books I chose to read are recognized as literature. Consequently, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read lots of books in 2018, and I encourage you to do the same.
Set Aside On-Hour-A-Day
Stop telling yourself that you simply don’t have the time to work on your dreams. Whatever your dreams are–whether it’s to make more money so you can redecorate your home, learn to play an instrument, have a positive impact on the world, and so on–you can accomplish those dreams in just one-hour-a-day. As a result, if you devote one-hour-a-day to achieving your most important dream in 2018, by the end of the year you’ll have devoted 365 hours to that dream. Not bad!
