we’ve put together a list of 22 New Year’s resolutions to make 2022 your best year. These resolutions are so feasible and can be fulfilled by anyone. So, here is how you can promote your healthiest self.
Take One Action Every Day
Successful people are deliberate to move one step every day towards their goals. You don’t need to hammer away at your goals to achieve them. Instead, be committed to moving in small steps every day because even your quick 10-minute workout can make a huge impact on your life. Reaching little milestones along the way will help you stay on track.
Focus this year on the present and stop overthinking about the past. Whenever you find yourself reminiscing at past events, shift your thoughts to the good things that are happening at the moment. Starting your day off on a positive note can help you stay away from negativity.
Use Self-Care Journaling
Write down some ideas for self-care and understand yourself more. For example, you can write down some questions that you have about your day, including the bad things that happened to you and the reasons why they happened. Keep a list of your favourite activities. Schedule at least one of these activities for each day of the week. Make a list of your best meals to cook whenever you need some self-care in your day.
You might not be as smart as you believe; therefore, challenge yourself this year to reconsider the things that you believe you know. Keep absorbing new knowledge and don’t stop learning.
Do What You Hate
World-renowned therapist, Marisa Peer says that successful people do what they don’t like to achieve what they want. Therefore, push yourself to do the unpleasant stuff that can improve your progress. So, give it a go next time that little voice in your head starts nagging that you should put off for tomorrow what you know needs to be done today.
Live the Life you Want to Live
Bonnie Ware worked in palliative care, spending time with patients who only had a few months to live. Ware realized that the most expressed regret of her patients was that they lived the life that other people expected them to live, not according to what they prefered.
Pursue an Inspiration
Pick the long-life goal that excites you the most and set it in motion in 2022. This might be your long wish to lose weight, write a book, get a pet, travel, or learn a new language.
Look After Your Health
Make it a goal this year to avoid burnout by looking after your mental health. Also, check how many times you exercise each week and put a nutrition plan to stay healthy. Consider trying a new routine at the gym or trying a virtual, at-home exercise program.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
Challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone in 2022 and meet new people. Invest time in working on your relationships and consider what you need to improve. Try out a sports team and conquer your fears about socializing with others.
Find Solace in Books
Expand your worldview this year by selecting 10 books that are recommended by the world great thinkers and are deemed worth reading. The resolution is very easy to fulfil if you set a time for reading every day even for 15 minutes only. There is science-backed evidence that reading can improve one’s memory, concentration, and analytical skills.
Be that person who makes everyone around feel safe and happy. Make it a resolution this year to cheer people up and avoid spreading negative news.
Go a Whole Day without Opening Facebook
You wouldn’t die if you avoided Facebook for one day per week.
Give Back to the Environment
With everything going on about carbon dioxide and climate change, one of the best goals that you can set this year is buying products with recycled content.
Drink More Water
Always keep a bottle handy throughout the day wherever you go. Drink one glass of water before each meal and replace one cup of coffee or tea that you drink per day with water.
Call Your Friends
Instead of texting people, make it a goal this year to call them. Take time to acknowledge loved ones via a simple phone or Zoom call.
Take the Stairs
Get a break from taking the elevator and add extra steps to your day. Stair-climbing improves the heart, muscle strength, bone density, and joint flexibility and burns calories. You don’t need to join a gym to slim down. Just find the nearest set of stairs, and off you go!
Meet Your Friends without Posting It on Social Media
Arrange a trip or an outing with your friends and agree on not posting anything on social media. In a world where people meet just to have photos and brag on the internet, challenge yourself to conquer this disease in 2022.
Bring a Plant to your Home
Plants are a great stress reliever, so buy a plant this year and invest some time in nurturing it.
If you have some clothes or stuff that you don’t use, consider donating them to a charity. Taking time to volunteer and practising random acts of kindness are the best goals that you can set for 2022.
Use a Six-Month Productivity Planner
Learn how to plan for months ahead by setting small priorities and goals. This resolution will help you have a holistic view of your life and personal development.
Avoid negative self-talk and see your failures as opportunities for development. Trust in the hard work you do and boost that self-esteem.
Learn How to Dress with Style
Learn how to revamp your wardrobe by choosing clothes that will make you stand out in a crowd. It only needs good taste and artistic sense. Improving the way you dress can have a huge impact on how people see you.
