As we approach the end of another year, many of us start thinking about New Year's resolutions. While it's easy to set lofty goals, it's important to be realistic and set achievable ones. With that in mind, let's take a look at some New Year's resolutions that are both attainable and worth pursuing for the year 2024.
Most New Year's Resolutions go by the wayside before Valentine's Day. Here are some of the most achievable New Year's resolutions and tips to help carry them out for a better year ahead!
Get fit- The busiest time for gyms is January 1st. But if you're still there by January 30, you'll notice a half-empty gym. Most who stick with it find a plan that is easy to follow. Here are a few mistakes to avoid.
Reduce stress- Improving your ability to combat stress is something that everyone should improve on. Stress is unavoidable. Take a chunk out of your day for yourself. Meditate, take your mind off things. Use any of our therapy sacks with a special blend of calming aromas to get your mind right!
Less social media- In today's day and age, social media is an extremely prominent activity. As someone once said, "Unplug to unwind, tune out to tune in, and disconnect to connect." Don't let opportunities for happiness that are right in front of you pass you by.
Meet new people- Putting yourself out there can bring mental health benefits and even help your career. Get out of your shell and meet some interesting people using these tips.
Improving your confidence can be a tough one. It is much easier said than done, but people notice confidence, and it will lead you to more happiness in life. Use different tricks to boost your confidence and live a happy life.
Save some money- It is always extremely tempting to spend money on new shoes or a hot outfit, but save it for something special! Saving money for an experience, such as traveling, renovating a house or a brand new one, or investing it in yourself to learn a new hobby or get a degree.
Have more energy consistently- Stop relying on coffee and other supplements to get through your day. Sleep better by reading before bed, and stop using your phone at night. Stay consistent with your sleep schedule and be diligent with it. Eat a hearty breakfast and a glass of cool water to help boost your momentum to take on the day.
Use your time wisely- Lastly, spend some quality time with the people who mean the most to you. Life is too short to worry about "likes" or Facebook friends you wouldn't recognize in person. Surround yourself with people that you care about and who feel the same about you.
Here are some tips for making your New Year's resolutions achievable:
- Be specific. The more specific your resolutions are, the easier they will achieve. For example, instead of saying, "I want to lose weight," say, "I want to lose 10 pounds by June 1."
- Set realistic goals. Try to change slowly. Start with small, achievable goals and gradually work up to bigger ones.
- Make a plan. Once you know what your goals are, create a plan for how you will achieve them. This will help you stay on track and motivated.
- Track your progress. Keep track of your progress toward your goals. This will help you see how far you've come and stay motivated.
- Feel free to adjust your goals. If your goals are too difficult to achieve, feel free to adjust them. It's important to be flexible and realistic.
A Word From SACKSY THYME
When setting New Year's resolutions, it's important to start small and gradually work towards bigger goals. This is because setting overly ambitious goals can often lead to frustration and disappointment, ultimately making it harder to stay motivated. By breaking down your larger goals into smaller, more manageable steps, you'll be able to build momentum and make steady progress over time.
So, whether you're looking to get in shape, learn a new skill, or improve your mental health, be sure to set realistic goals that are achievable with consistent effort and dedication. Remember, progress is a journey, not a destination!
