Another year has ended. Like every year we all have listed down our aspirations, aims, resolutions, and targets for ourselves. But what have we learned from our past experiences?
Most of us break our new year resolutions within the first few weeks. So how do we make them more successful this year?
Here are some simple ways to keep up the most common new year resolution!
- Focus on Health/ Lose weight
Understanding nutrition and calorie intake are required for weight loss. Changing our diet, regularising sleep patterns, staying active – not just exercising but also keeping yourself active throughout the day is paramount to maintaining your weight. So is feeling happy mentally. If you are stressed or depressed, get help.
Do not make any changes overnight and do not expect any changes overnight. Keeping a regular routine for sleep, meals, and exercise goes a long way!
- Get organized
Getting organized is vital to managing your time effectively. The first step to an organized home, office, or your desk is decluttering. Donate or discard all that you have not used in the past one year. Carry a small notebook and pen handy to make notes on to-dos and upcoming events. Check the list once in the morning and once before going to bed. This helps you keep track of your tasks and will help be more organized.
- Take up a new hobby
Make use of your free time in a constructive manner and learn a new hobby at the same time! If you’re interested in communication skills, arts, music, or sports, find out how to learn new skills and hobbies in a short time. There are a lot of online skill training courses too.
- Less time on social media
Social media has taken the place of outdoor play, games and meeting up with people. It has become a serious addiction for all ages. Most of the people use social media to stay in touch with family, but if you consistently spend more than 3 hours a day on social media, it’s time to take a break. Take a digital day off. Switch off your phones for a day. Check them only once or twice a day during weekends. You will be surprised to see how much time you can actually save! Spending time on social media should not be substituted for spending time with your family.
So what is your new year resolution this year?
