It’s the time of the year again when we start making our new year’s resolution. Sometimes we succeed in keeping it and most of the times we don’t. Let’s admit it – following our resolution we had never quit smoking, started exercising, stopped eating junk food or stopped spending more. There’s no point in making resolutions that we won’t live up to. In 2018, let’s make realistic resolutions that we can stick to and are attainable. Here’s a list of five realistic resolutions you should surely give a try.
Stop pressuring January
Let’s stop pinning all hopes on the poor January. Lower your speed and not pressurise the first month of the year by trying everything on your to-do list. And inevitably by the time February or March comes the resolutions are probably forgotten. Instead, give January and your to-do list some breathing room and chill.
It’s high time you take a break from those laptop screens, feeds on your social media accounts, and notifications from your subscribed YouTube channels. Taking into consideration the nature of work we do these days it is hard to imagine our lives without gadgets. But getting addicted to gadgets isn’t healthy and carries several side-effects with it. To cope up with it go on a digital detox. It is like a detox diet that helps you to clear your headspace. To start with shut off your notifications from your text messages, iPads and social media updates. Secondly, trick your mind by focusing on activities you love such as cooking, gardening, knitting or painting.
Ditch the snooze button
Clicking the snooze button is an ultimate pleasure. Those 5 minutes of extra doesn’t make any difference or make up for our last sleep and deep down we even understand it. The fact is it destroys your sleep quality and has more serious consequences like playing with your biological clock or making you feel more tired. Instead, try going to bed a little early and drag yourself out of the bed as soon as the alarm goes off.
Stop stalking your ex
No denying the fact that heartbreaks have its own share of pains. It is difficult to cut off ties with someone who was once special in your life. But the real struggle is when you stopped receiving those lovely texts, calls, and updates from them. And this is when you innocently start scrolling their social media accounts. But it will only give you pain. We say there are better things to do in life like gorging on the chocolate desserts, watching your favourite movie or go on a shopping.
Travel, travel and travel
Traveling more doesn’t mean you spend a fortune and fly to some European countries. It also doesn’t mean you click pictures, tag your friends and gain maximum likes or comments. It simply means escaping the pressures of life and just enjoy. So make a list and check out nearby places to explore, pack your bags and leave.
