New Year’s Resolutions Everyone Can Keep
The New Year is here and many of us are glad to put it behind us, look brightly to the future, start anew and seize the year ahead.
Getting in shape and eating right seems to always be high on everyone’s lists, but truly, this is generally a HUGE fail. So let’s try something different this year. Something pretty easy. How about we focus on being better people?
Simply, leave your mark. Volunteer. Plant a tree. Spend a day at the food bank. Pick waste from shoreline. Leave an impression on the world around you.
Say thank you. Hold doors open. Be kind and considerate.
Try Something New
Don’t be afraid to fail. Want to dance the mambo? Learn violin? How about yoga? Take that first step. Impress yourself with how you have grown from awful to ‘hey, I’m ok at this!’
Facing your fears helps you grow. Conquer something that scares you. Own it. Show it who’s boss.
Next time you’re out for dinner or coffee with a friend, listen to them. Don’t just wait for your turn to talk. Listen to what others are saying. You may gain new insights.
How easy is it to turn down invitations, dinner requests, work functions, etc. It’s so easy to stay at home in our PJ’s. But saying yes means you are showing support. Try it.
Make Others a Priority
No, you don’t have to give up vast amounts of time, but returning calls, answering texts or emails promptly, or even reaching out now and then just to say hello goes a long way.
Care Less What Others Think
Try to live freely and unafraid of judgement. Everyone is equal. You have no one to impress but yourself.
Be a Cheerleader
When your friends and family succeed at something, praise them. Show your love and support.
Learn to Accept and Give Compliments
When someone tells you how wonderful they think you look, own it! And then, take a moment to make someone else feel good. Compliment and achievement, a task, clothing, whatever. If you admire it, say so. People will be appreciative.
