23 New Year's Resolution Ideas

Happy New Year! As we ring in the new year, it’s a natural time to reflect on the past and set goals for the future. One way to do this is by making some New Year’s Resolution’s.

I’m not always the best at sticking to my New Year’s Resolutions, so this year I’m only going to pick one main resolution to work on.

However, as we are in winter here in the UK, I’m starting to understand why it can be sometimes feel like the wrong time to make so many changes.

Therefore, I have also picked some things I want to work on when spring comes in. That time of year just feels so much more lighter and I always have more motivation too!

So make sure you save some of these ideas for when the nights become lighter and the weather becomes warmer. And you have so much more energy to make the changes you want!

But if you like making goals at the start of the year, I’ve got ya!!

Here are 23 ideas for resolutions to consider as you kick off the new year:

3. Learn a new skill: Whether it’s a new language, a musical instrument, or a new hobby, learning something new can be both fun and rewarding.

Tips to Help You Make and Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Here are a few tips to help you make and keep your New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Be specific: Rather than resolving to “exercise more,” set a specific goal such as “run three times a week.” Specific goals are more achievable and easier to track.
  2. Start small: If you’re trying to make a big change, it’s often easier to start small and build up gradually. For example, if you want to start meditating every day, you might start with just 5 minutes a day and gradually increase the time as it becomes a habit.
  3. Make a plan: Decide how you’re going to achieve your resolution and create a plan to follow. This might include identifying specific actions you need to take, or setting aside specific times to work on your goal.
  4. Find accountability: It can be helpful to have someone else hold you accountable for your resolutions. This could be a friend or family member who you check in with regularly, or a group of people working towards similar goals.
  5. Celebrate your successes: As you make progress towards your resolutions, take time to celebrate your achievements. This can help keep you motivated and encourage you to keep going.

Remember, it’s okay if you don’t achieve your resolution right away, or if you have setbacks along the way. The important thing is to keep trying and to be kind to yourself. With a little planning and effort, you can make this year your best yet.

You got this Queen!!
