Are you fed up with the same old tired New Year’s resolutions? You don’t have to be anymore. There are so many different areas of your life that you can focus on, instead of making a resolution based on something that you have tried before and were not successful with due to it not being fun. Be as creative as you can with your resolution(s), and you should see much more success!
Make More Time for Art
Or, you can interchange “art” for anything else that you really enjoy in life. It doesn’t matter that it is not in the conventional realm of ways in which to improve yourself, such as career and weight loss. Make a pledge to yourself that you will give yourself more time each day (or on a weekly basis) to create amazing things, work on some dance moves, or put together something for the home that you’ve always wanted to build. It will decrease your stress, and you just may find a new passion or grow with your current one.
Examples: Keep a sketchbook or journal, create one drawing or painting each day, complete a set number of DIY home projects each month/season.
Jar of Blessings
This is a popular idea that is being shared across the ‘net. The basic goal is to fill a jar up with daily affirmations, a few words on what you are grateful for, and things that you are proud of to open up on the first day of the year. It is simple to do each day, takes only a couple of minutes, and you are going to love to have a look at the end of the year.
Go On an Adventure
Maybe you can resolve to follow through with plans to go on an amazing vacation with a loved one. Start planning when the year begins, or even earlier. You can pair it with a resolution to quit or limit something, such as smoking or fast food. Save up the money in a jar or your savings account with the trip in mind.
Take an Online Course
There are free courses available online from various real universities/colleges. You’d be surprised at the range of courses that you can find. Everything from internet technology to zoology is at your fingertips, ready for you to learn about subjects that are of interest to you. Some even offer a certificate to show that you passed, if you pay a relatively small fee.
