4 Unique New Years Resolutions for 2020
07 Nov 2019
So, you want to achieve something next year, perhaps you’ve already reached all your goals, or maybe you’re sick of setting the same ones and failing at them. If this sounds like you, then perhaps it’s time to set yourself a more unique New Year’s resolution. Who wants to be like everyone else anyway and scrambling through the doors of the gym for the first few weeks of the new year, starting some crazy diet or trying to read as many books as possible all for your efforts to slowly fade away as the year gets underway? Why not try doing something fun instead? Something a bit different? Something you can achieve? Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration:
Learn to Meditate
Once you start meditating, you will realize it is like a free gift in life that can make you feel fantastic. It might sound like nonsense to you, but you have nothing to lose by giving it a go. You’ll soon find that meditating gives you more peace of mind and more contentment in general. Start with just five minutes a day and work your way up to more time. It’s really simple to do, and you don’t need any special equipment. You can meditate in any quiet, distraction-free location, at any time of day. However, if you’re not sure where to start, get on Youtube or have a look at the app store on your phone, and you’ll find loads of tools to get you started. There are even loads to help you sleep at night too.
Start Stretching Daily
Everyone knows that stretching before and after a workout is essential to prevent injury and sore muscles, but what about making it a part of your everyday routine? And not just a big stretch when you wake up. Regular stretching can help to increase your flexibility, which is crucial for your overall health. It can also help you to perform everyday activities easier and delay the reduced mobility that can come with aging. Stretching regularly can also help to increase your range of motion too. Start small, and then by the end of the year, you might be doing an hour of yoga each day, who knows?
Know When To Ask For Help
Have you struggled on through 2019 and tried to deal with everything yourself? Well, now is the time to stop that. You must ask for help, whether it’s from friends or family or experts. Don’t put off going to the doctor, don’t put off going to see a therapist or a support group because you think your problems aren’t big enough, if they’re affecting your life then they are, and there is help out there. Whether you need to get advice on filing a personal injury claim, you need to talk to your boss about your workload, or you’re struggling financially and need some help – don’t try and deal with everything on your own. Support is out there, so make 2020 the year you make the most of it.
Do something That Scares You
Doing things that scare you isn’t just about thrill-seeking and jumping out of planes. You might be scared of phoning the local Chinese and ordering your Friday night takeaway; you might always get your partner to do it instead. It could be any little thing that scares you, but use 2020 as an excuse to face your fears. Do lots of little things or one big thing, like jumping out of a plane or running a marathon. Push yourself, and do it to your limits and no one else’s.
