It’s that time of year again when people start to feel a bit guilty for having a bit too much fun and look towards January as an opportunity to turn a new leaf. No more partying, no more eating everything in sight and no more lie ins till one in the afternoon; ‘the New Year will be the start of a new me.’ Yeah, that’s what everyone says. New Year’s resolutions would be a fantastic idea if they lasted longer than two weeks, but unfortunately the winter blues get the better of all of us. Although, what if we told you that there was a way in which you could achieve all your goals and see your resolutions through to the bitter end? Well, it’s true! Here are some of our top resolutions and the best ways to accomplish them.
See the World
A common resolution for many is to go travelling. Bored of life’s trivialities, people look to going abroad as a means of escape, and who can blame them? Jetting off across the globe offers so many exciting possibilities that you’d be daft not to consider leaving the country. But, as we all know, it’s never as easy as that. Despite the government telling us that the economy is blimin’ brilliant these days (or along those lines anyway) our bank balance seems to suggest otherwise, and as a result, we’re prevented from seeing the world in all its glory… or so you’d think! Thanks to cheap cruises we’re given the chance to visit the places we’ve always dreamed of, whilst enjoying a life of luxury at the same time. Perfect.
This is also a popular New Year’s Resolution; to eat like a rabbit and lose those pounds! Everybody wishes they could change something about themselves and it’s usually the arrival of the beginning of January which makes us want to do something about it. But the problem is, after trying really hard for a few weeks and seeing no results, people tend to give up. This is why we suggest thinking in the long-term. Don’t jump into an intense regime of strict dieting and exercise straight away; plan what your goals are and give yourself a reasonable time in which to achieve them in. Once you’ve got past that first hurdle, things get easier, and you’ll be looking how you imagined in no time!
Whether you fancy a bit of salsa dancing or wish to take up cookery lessons, trying a new hobby is something which people often like the idea of but never actually get round to doing it. ‘Yeah I wouldn’t mind learning Italian, and go rock climbing, and fly a plane,’ but then it gets to December the following year and have you actually done any of them? Probably not. That’s why we recommend that you chose the one you like the idea of the most and focus on that. This way you’re not overwhelmed by all the things you wish to accomplish. After deciding what you want your hobby to be, dedicate a section of time each week to progressing in this interest; get this sorted and you’ll soon succeed.
