The New Year always brings an unusually crowded gym, and an increase in Weight Watchers memberships. While 2015 will most likely be the same, it’s time for you to mix it up a little bit. This year focus less on your outer appearance, and more on your entire person as a whole:
1) Be More Positive
Buddha says, “What you think you become.” This year, take a leaf out of Buddha’s book and remember how much easier living a positive life can be when you have a positive attitude. Think good thoughts, and look at life in the most positive way possible.
2) Stay Healthy
While most people set their number one New Year’s resolution as exercising and losing weight, this year include the idea of staying healthy instead of hard-core dieting. Dieting can sometimes backfire, so try and stick to a healthier diet, but don’t skip dinner because you couldn’t make it to the gym one day, and don’t forget to eat that extra Snickers bar when your craving it.
3) Do Something Your Future Self Will Appreciate
Whether it’s hitting the gym, or getting a head start on a paper that’s not due for another two weeks, do something that you’ll thank yourself for down the road. It’s a motivational way to get ahead.
4) Worry Less
While worrying can be a habit for some, try and remember that it will get you nowhere. Think positive thoughts; it will make the present, and (hopefully) the future a lot more enjoyable.
5) Try Something New
Whether it’s taking a stab at photography or attempting a Pilates class, trying something new will broaden the horizons of your life. Let new experiences lead to new friends, and a new attitude. You’ll be happy you tried it.
6) Start a Journal
Writing down your thoughts and feelings is a great emotional outlet. Vent to your journal instead of your roommate. You may even sharpen up your writing skills (and nothings wrong with that).
7) Keep in Touch
This year, don’t let your best friend who moved to Hawaii become a stranger. Staying in touch with long lost and long distance friends can be hard, especially when your schedule is impossible to keep up with. Send a quick text, and meet up with old friends for lunch. Staying close to the people who have supported you in the past should be one of the most important goals in your life.
8) Enjoy Your Life
This year will be different than the last (it’s guaranteed). Make it a goal to have a better year than you did in 2014. It’s the little things that count, so make it a point to appreciate and enjoy the experiences you’ll have this year.
