New Year Resolution Ideas

Although it’s a little past midnight, yet the night is still young. Tweet, text, call or access the social apps, take a snap and post, but friends do not forget to mane the new year resolutions. Don’t know what to think? Here I give you some New Year Resolution Ideas for you to follow in the new decade:  

  • Drink More water. Keep a track of your water intake with a measuring water bottle.
  • Move more, sit less! Sitting for long hours is unhealthy. Between long hours of the desk-work walk a little or do some stretching exercise. 
  • Send more handwritten letters. Grandparents would love to get snail mail. This will brighten up their days. 
  • Maintain a healthy diet and a proper timetable. Be punctual of the bedtime. Eat the measured quantity of food at the correct time. 
  • Turn on music instead of the TV as it is motivational instead of a distraction.
  • Quit one bad habit like smoking, eating snack food, continuous use of mobile, etc.
  • Take time for self-care. Keep my time and ponder about you for some time of each day.
  • Clean out your email inbox. Unsubscribe some of them. 
  • Take a full day off from social media once a month. Believe me, you will feel relaxed and unintoxicated.
  • Clean out your closet. This will declutter your life.
  • Do a little act of kindness daily. Help someone to cross the road or buy a packet of food for the hungry street urchin.
  • Deep clean your keyboard! It will keep you away from vices.
  • Delete apps on your phone that you don’t use. Your mobile will run smoothly.
  • Put your phone away an hour before bed. This will improve your sleep habits.
  • Send thank-you cards. This will make both the sender and the receiver happy.
