There’s only one month of the year left, and that means that it is now time to start looking ahead to 2018. With a new year comes a new set of New Year’s resolutions! Sick of making and breaking yours after just a couple of months? Here are some that are well worth trying to stick to for as long as possible.
Taking It Easy At Work
We all lead such busy lives these days. That’s mostly because there are some pretty big demands from the professional world. It seems that every job and position has become a lot more demanding than what it once was. So, why not set a resolution to start taking it easier at work? For instance, you might want to stop doing so much unpaid overtime. That way, you can leave the office on time and spend your evenings with your nearest and dearest. You’ll also find that taking things easier at work and not taking on too much can help you manage your stress levels better.
Lots of people decide that they will get fit and lose weight in the new year, but very few people actually stick to this. That is usually because they set their goals way too high and give themselves targets that are absolutely unachievable. So, it’s important that you keep things realistic. You will find that getting a personal trainer can really help you stay motivated and on track. It’s also worth speaking to a nutritionist so that they can help you make changes to your diet that won’t leave you hungry.
Do you rarely spend any time getting stuck into a good book anymore? Lots of people don’t read half as much than what they want to, and it’s mostly because they don’t have much spare time. One way to start reading more is to take a book up to bed with you and spend a while reading before you turn the lights out. This should also help you fall asleep and have a better night’s sleep as well.
Staying In Touch
Even though we now have social media that makes it easier to find out what all our friends and families are doing with their lives. But do you remember when the last time you had a really good chat with a friend or relative was? If it hasn’t been for a while, you might want to promise yourself that you will try and stay in touch more next year. Even just a quick phone call every couple of weeks to your friends and family can make a big difference and help you feel much better connected, especially to those who live quite far away from you.
If none of the above New Year’s resolutions tickle your fancy, I’m sure that you will be able to think of another one that suits you better. Just remember that it needs to be achievable so that you don’t give up so easily unlike previous years!
