6 resolution ideas for 2020
The new year is upon us. Every year we have a new year's resolution that we want to start. Some resolutions we might have had are losing weight, stop drinking, or even to stop cursing. Sometimes we have good intentions ,but how often do we follow through?
I want to share with you six resolution ideas that you can achieve.
How many years have you heard someone say "I'm going on a diet" at the beginning of the year? Instead of saying I'm going to lose weight, say I'm going to eat healthier. Eating healthier is a lifestyle change. By changing your eating habits, your state of mind starts to change. After changing your eating habits, then you can start adding goals like going to the gym and weight loss.
I know we have all heard that saying "the early bird gets the worm." In so many ways, this statement is true. If you have a full-time job, it's hard to get in the time where you want to do things for you. By the time you get home, you are so tired from work, and if your anything like me, you have a whole family to attend to when you get back. So not wake up in the morning and work on whatever it is you want before everyone wakes up. Start setting the alarm for 5 a.m. to get your goals for the day out the way.
Throughout the year, we always complain that we need a vacation. My spouse and I committed to getting away once a year. I know this is not ideal for everyone because everyone's finances look different. You don't have to go far from your home. Look at places not too far at a reasonable price. This way, you will feel like you got a mini vacation.
I challenged myself to read books every year. My challenge for 2019 was to read ten books. Even though I didn't read ten books, I never stopped learning new things throughout the year. We have to feed our brains new knowledge consistently. Read about your hobbies and interest in the new year. I bet you will learn something you didn't know. Also, challenge yourself to learn something new.
When I wake up, and my space is clean, my mind is fresh. Have a day throughout every month were you declutter your space. I am currently working on decluttering my home for the new year. It doesn't have to be a big project and can even be as small as that junk drawer in your kitchen.
Meet new people (share interest)
In the new year, mingle and do meet and greets. Find individuals and groups that share your interest. You never know what you can learn from new people. Also, what you can share to help someone.
Getting yourself out of your comfort zone is not a bad thing. In the new year, I am going to challenge my fears and make myself uncomfortable.
What is your 2020 resolution?
