As we move into the New Year, it’s that time when we decide that we could do things better and make New Years resolutions. But what should we resolve to do? Here are the top 10 most popular New Year Resolutions that people make.
Give Up or Quit
Smoking, drinking and chocolate are bad for you. Stop now! Well, perhaps you want to give up something that you think is bad for you. This will hopefully make you feel better about yourself. Giving up smoking or binge drinking is definitely a good New Year Resolution to make, but get all the support you can if you want to succeed. Get yourself a buddy who can share the experience of giving up with you. You can give each other support and talk about how it is going.
Stop spending so much time on your backside and improve your fitness. There are many who choose to join a gym. This is a costly business, and by the end of February, you may well have given up as it is becoming a chore. What you need is to use the outdoor gym. If you love being social, outdoor bootcamps will provide you with friends, fun and fitness. Go for a walk outdoors for half an hour every day. Start going for a run, slowly at first, and then build up. Go cycling. It is free, and being outside will lift your mood. The changing scenery will also keep your interest. There are also more and more outdoor gyms appearing in parks across the country.
Diets and Losing Weight
Food glorious food. After the festive food feast, you may think it is time to shift some weight. Don’t just starve yourself. Find out about a balanced diet, and get your metabolism going. Begin to do more exercise to use up more of the calories you take in.
Do something unforgettable
This is the year that you should go out and do something that makes you feel great about yourself. Have a go at one of the amazing activities that the outdoors has to offer, from high speed driving, skydiving, or experiencing the rush of white water rafting.
Complete a personal Challenge
Set yourself a personal challenge for your New Year’s Resolution. It could be to run a marathon, get that promotion, or even do something you have been thinking about for a while.
Learn how to do something new
There are always new things to learn, and you should learn how to do something new or different as one of your New Year’s Resolutions. Get inspiration on taking up a new hobby.
Travel and Visit Somewhere Amazing
Why not travel and visit somewhere new for your New Year resolution? Travel companies are desperate to get you off travelling around the world, and January is one of the best times of the year to grab a bargain. There is an adventure out there waiting for you. These are the top 40 dream adventure trips everyone else has done.
Make this year the year that you go out and make new friends. Don’t just use Twitter or Facebook, join a club, or get in touch with old friends. Spend more time with your family, or get to know people in your neighbourhood.
Charity and Community
Think about others as well as yourself. You have a lot to offer others who would really appreciate your time and effort. There are lots of charities that are always seeking help, and community projects that you will get to see the results of.
Earn More Money
This year is going to be a year of opportunity, so look for ways to get your cash flow into a more positive position. Get yourself out of debt and into financial stability by getting that promotion, or getting a new job. If you don’t like the desk job, there are plenty of outdoor jobs that pay well.
Good Luck With your New Year Resolutions
Whatever you endeavour to achieve this year, get all the support you can and stick at it. Things may be easy or they may be tough, but keep going. It will be worth it.
