As we enter the new year, it’s time to start thinking about 2023 resolutions. When we’re swept up in the holiday spirit, it’s easy to make too many ambitious resolutions for the new year. These ambitions, in addition to being unattainable, can be highly unhealthy. Furthermore, we are not superhuman. Even the most determined folks would have difficulty.
But don’t be discouraged; achievable, long-term goals are entirely feasible! And we believe this is your year to make it happen.
Here are five resolutions that are both meaningful and achievable.
Enjoy life more!
The year 2022 has taught us that life is extremely short and that our primary goals should be to be happy and to live freely. Be more precise about your intentions. Travel, start that business, eat the foods you enjoy, go out and meet people; whatever you do, make sure it feeds your soul with happiness.
Eat better and exercise to feel good, not thinner
Set yourself up for success by doing these things because they make you feel good. Instead of obsessing over the scale, obsess over how amazing you feel since you started being more active. Begin by making at least one trip to the gym or walking every now and then instead of taking the bus. In terms of diet, you don’t need to go to extremes; instead, attempt to maintain a good balance.
Go someplace you have never been
Step outside your comfort zone and try something new. It is beneficial to the soul and forces you to discover new things.
Save or invest a part of your pay cheque
Even just a small percentage can really add up down the line. Plan for the future and don’t be silly with your money. Make your money work for you.
Donate to the less fortunate
We tend to hang onto stuff “just in case”. If you haven’t worn it or used it in a year, give someone else the chance to. If you have extra, donate to the less fortunate. Make someone happy.
Bonus: Stay away from negativity!
If it doesn’t bring you peace, it’s not worth having around!
