Work towards better health
Staying healthy is something that should be the prerogative of all of us, irrespective of whether we are fat or thin, old or young. Good health must be the top priority, for without which everything else is defeated. Have realistic goals, like adding more veggies to your meal every day or going for a walk at least five days a week. Quit any one bad habit of yours and adapt two good habits you want in yourself this new year.
Your grandfather was right when he asked you to save for rainy days. It can be hard to keep tabs on our hard-earned cash, especially over the holiday season. One minute it’s there, the next it’s gone. This year, put in place some practical measures to help you keep a closer eye on it.
Focus on self-love
Write about how important it is to love and respect yourself before loving someone else. Travelling and fulfilling your goals can be one of the forms of practicing self-love. If you haven’t travelled much in life, you haven’t experienced life. It is very important to explore new places. In fact, studies suggest that by taking a break from your daily life, unplugging from the pulls and pushes of technology and engaging in new activities in new places, you have an easier opportunity to release unwanted habits and stress.
Manage time better
There is a saying “Time and tide waits for none”. The saying is indeed true. Time waits for none, it comes and goes before you realise it. Neither money nor position can buy it. Nothing on earth can subdue or conquer it. So, resolve to make the best use of it starting from today.
Work on your social skills
Most social skills need to be practiced in order for you to get better at them. The first time you try to chat to someone at a party, you may not get it right. With time you will be a lot more comfortable and polished. Identifying with individuals leads to better relationships. And, as most of us know, one can’t advance very far in life without being able to influence relationships. Focusing on relationships will help you land a job, advance in your job, make new friends, and give you a better outlook about life.
People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they are thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems.
