January 1st is right around the corner and you need to get your mind and spirit around your resolutions now if you are going to stand a chance at accomplishing them.
So we found a list of the 70 BEST New Year’s Resolution that is sure to inspire you to take action now and set yourself up for success.
With that said, here we go:
1. Drink plenty of water
This may be one of the most common New Year’s resolution ideas…
But, that doesn’t make it a bad one!
We could all use a little more water in our daily lives. You can keep track of your water intake with an app, journal (free printable) or a marked water bottle.
2. Move more, sit less
Between desk jobs, long commutes, and stay-at-home orders, I think we’re all guilty of sitting too much. And it turns out that sitting is the new smoking (it’s terrible for your health).
Make it a goal to start taking daily walks, going for bike rides, or even running. Just something to get you up and moving a little more often.
3. Make plans to take a mini adventure
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there’s quite a bit of uncertainty about the future. So setting a goal for big travel plans might still be a bit out of reach at this point.
But with vaccine boosters starting to be rolled out and hopeful predictions of the virus being under control by Spring of 2022, a mini expedition could be pretty doable.
You might take a camping trip, visit the next town over, or explore some National Parks. There are 6 opportunities for you to visit National Parks for free in the upcoming year!
Whatever you do, just shake up your usual routine and of course, stay safe.
4. Prioritize eco-friendly choices
Making a positive impact in the world might feel futile as an average person.
Little decisions add up as a whole, though. Voting with your wallet is an important step you can take towards being more eco-friendly.
5. Volunteer more often
There a lot of mores on this New Year’s resolutions list, huh?
Well, that’s because the goal of self-improvement is to enrich our lives, so we have to add MORE to it!
And volunteering time to help improve your community is a great way to give back.
6. Adopt an attitude of gratitude
The simple act of giving thanks has scientifically proven benefits.
Gratitude is a small perspective shift, but it can significantly change your life. Kickstart this personal goal with a gratitude journal like this.
7. Send handwritten letters
Older folks, like grandparents & aunts/uncles, LOVE getting snail mail.
Brighten a relative’s day and get in touch with your offline self by sending a few handwritten letters this upcoming year.
Did you know that there are services (like Handwrytten) that handwrite letters/cards for you?
Pretty neat to know if you’re ever running short on time or if you just don’t love your own handwriting.
