9 Best New Year Resolution Ideas


Hello Readers ! I hope you are all doing great. 

As new year is around the corner and we are all super enthralled to welcome this year with immense zeal and exhilaration, and this excitement irrefutably surpasses everything else.  

New year is the advent of new beginnings and new hopes, so we all make some resolutions for the same with a hope that the coming year turns out to be better physically, emotionally, mentally and financially, than the one which has passed. And for a better tomorrow we make some resolutions for the new beginnings and positive changes in our lives. 

Although making a firm decision as a resolution to do or to not do something may vary from person to person and is a very personal choice that we all make in our lives for ourselves, in order to improve our well-being and state of mind for a better and a brighter future. So, keeping that in mind I have come up with 9 BEST NEW YEAR RESOLUTION IDEAS for you all, that are generic and can be implemented by everyone of you in your lives for your betterment. 

If you are looking for some resolution ideas this year and you want to kick start your new year with immense positivity and motivation, then, there you go !! Glue yourself to the screen for the next three minutes and enlighten yourself with these 9 BEST NEW YEAR RESOLUTION IDEAS

Let's get started and crush this together. 


SELF-LOVE - Self-Love is very significant in all the aspects of life and it is the one of the most underrated form of love because people often tend to underestimate the power of it. Self-Love is the amalgamation of both actions and words, that is, how you talk to yourself, what you speak to yourself, how you treat yourself, and how you allow others to treat you, this is all a part of self-love. 

You have to understand that it's very important for you to love yourself, because in your busy lifestyles you often tend to take yourselves for granted to an extent that it hampers your well-being and growth. You have to understand that what you think of yourself should matter to you and there is nobody who can stop you, but yourself. People will say what they have to, they will judge you whenever they want to, but don't let their opinion and judgement of you, wobble you away from your sense of being and loving yourself. 

Love yourself enough so that you can keep your happiness and well-being above all and prioritize your life over everything else and make it a point that, anything that drags you down, should hold no place in your life anymore. 

"No matter what people perceive of me, I will always shine through because I know I am precious and so is my life." - Keep affirming this to yourself, whenever you need to remind yourself that you are enough and worthy of everything that you wish for in life because you love yourself. 

Make a vow to yourself and take a resolution today that you will start loving yourself more, because this will be one of the best decisions that you will make for yourself. 

COMEBACK AFTER A SETBACK - Can you name a single person who hasn't faced a setback in their life. No, Right ? Because there isn't any. Each one of us has faced one, in somewhere or the other way because setbacks, failure, adversities, heartbreak, uncertainties, predicaments, are all part of our lives and life is incomplete without them. 

Failures teaches us things the hard way and yes it's irrefutably true that dealing with it isn't easier either, but what matters is how gracefully we deal with it and come back standing stronger than ever. 
If setbacks pull you down, then only you can pull yourself up, so don't let failures and adversities define who you are, it's your capability of coming back stronger than before and what you do with your life now, is what defines you as a person. 

You have to understand that, it's absolutely ok to sometimes feel anxious, stressed, insecure, negative, and somber because all of this are part and parcel of our lives and the not so good days are not here to stay forever and they too shall pass with time and that's what should keep you going ahead in life. 

Don't let the shortcomings wobble you from your dreams and overpower your sense of well-being and growth. Take your time, face it and deal with it and come back stronger, with adding feathers to your cap and enormous colors to your life. 

Promise yourself today, that no matter how many ebb and flow you come across in your life, you will gracefully deal with them, every single time and just keep moving forward in life. 

PUT A CHECK NEXT TO THE WISH/GOAL/DREAM THAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE IN LIFE - We all have a long list of wishes/goals/dreams that we want to attain in life, that are noted down somewhere in the pages of our dairies, Right !! If not in our diaries, then in our head and heart for sure. Even if it's the little things or the tiniest of dreams, we wish and aspire to attain them because it matters to us and the happiness that we get by achieving them is unparalleled.

Life is too short to waste any time thinking, not this time or may be next time. If you have the will to do it, then do it right there and don't wait for tomorrow to make it happen. Your hard work, perseverance and grit is enough to keep you going and accomplish whatever you have wished for and dreamt of, in life. 

So, take a vow and make a resolution for yourself today, that you will pull out all the stops in accomplishing the goals that you want to, you will fulfill the wishes that you aspire to, and you will achieve all your dreams by converting the possibilities into realities and not avert them for tomorrow, because all you have is now. 

LIVE IN THE MOMENT AND STAY HAPPIER - I strongly feel that in the cacophony of life, we have actually forgotten the real meaning of being happy from the inside. We have all the reasons to stay stressed and troubled, be it our work, relationship, health, emotions, finances because something or the other always keeps us frazzled. 

Yes, stress is a part of life and it will eventually take its toll. But what about being grateful for the little things in life and looking for happiness in the tiniest of moments. It doesn't mean that we don't have to dream big and beyond, all I am trying to say is that, we must live in the present moment and make the most of it and enjoy it to the fullest and look for glee and joy in these little moments of life because they will never come back once they are gone. We keep stressing about the future so much that we actually forget to embrace the present and live happily in the moment. 

Have you ever sat down quietly, just you and the energy around, trying to spend a little time in the moment with yourself, thanking god for every big and small things you have been blessed with in life, If not !! Then kindly do. And thank god every single day for what you are blessed with and then you will know, that you actually have a million reasons to be happy about. 

It's never too late to begin, so make a vow to yourself and let yourself know that you are blessed and god has given you innumerable reasons to be happy about and cherish the present moments in life. 

EMPHASIZE MORE ON READING BOOKS - If you are someone who doesn't read, then you are missing out on something great in life because reading should be one of the most essential part of your lives. As reading introduces you to a world, you have never seen before, a world where you can spend as much time as you want to and embrace the beauty and magic of the cosmos of words of the writer. 

Don't start reading just for the sake of reading it. Some people read books but they learn nothing from it, what's the point then. You don't have want to be that someone, Right !! And some people start reading as a recommendation from a friend or someone else, and if they don't enjoy that book, then they come to a conclusion that they don't enjoy reading. No, that's not how it should be. Start reading, start with the books that you really want to read. Start with something that excites you, to want to read a book and grab more knowledge on a topic or a story of your choice, only then you will enjoy the process of reading, which will eventually develop in you, a liking for it. 

There are innumerable benefits of reading which will inspire you to get you start reading, like it's healthy for your brain, it improves your memory, it reduces stress, it enhances your imagination, it improves your knowledge, it helps you sleep better, it inspires you and a lot more and I have written a blog on the benefits of reading books, so you can check out more on my blog, which will help you understand and imbibe it's benefits and inculcate it in your daily routine as well. 

Make books your best friend and you will thank yourself later, for making one of the best decisions of your life, because the joy of reading will eventually make you fall in love with reading books and embrace the magic that it has. 

EXERCISE AND HEALTHY EATING - I don't have the time to hit the gym or a join a yoga class, I don't feel motivated enough to stay fit, I can't wake up early and exercise, I am a foodie at heart, so I can't give up on my love for food : What's your excuse to not follow a healthy lifestyle, because we often end up making an excuse over -

Not hitting the gym or join a yoga class.
Not waking up early and exercise. 
Not able to follow a healthy lifestyle. 
Making an excuse over eating that extra slice of pizza.
Not following a healthy diet and what not.. 
And at the same time nagging over, not staying fit and healthy. 

The idea is eat clean and healthy and make fitness an integral part of your lives. Try and eat healthy whenever and wherever possible. It's absolutely ok to sometimes have cheat meals, or cheat days, but eating unhealthy most of the time and not exercising at all and having a sedentary lifestyle will hamper your health drastically. 

So, it's high time for you to stop making excuses over not following a healthy lifestyle. Initially it will be a little draining and difficult, and you will feel like giving up on it, but that's when you have to stay strong and determined because once you will start seeing the results of healthy eating and exercising ( walking, jogging, yoga, gym, swimming, cycling...anything of your choice ), you will then start enjoying the journey of following a healthy lifestyle because it will be totally worth every ounce of determination, patience and hard - work that you will put in. 

I am not just saying this just for the sake of it. Being a fitness enthusiast I have understood the importance of healthy eating and exercising, and also, it is a journey, indeed a beautiful one. So, just do it and trust me, once you will start following a healthy routine, you will automatically and irrefutably fall in love with fitness.

So what are you waiting for, start today itself and follow a healthy lifestyle and let this journey of yours influence you to become an inspiration for others as well. 

PRACTICE GRATITUDE - Practicing thankfulness takes away nothing from you, it in fact makes you a little more kind and compassionate towards others and makes you feel at peace. 

As humans we sometimes fail to appreciate what we are blessed with and we are for the most part in our lives running after the things we don't have and in this constant race, we take for granted the things that we have today, instead of being grateful to have them in our lives. Why do we forget that the things that we have today, are the ones that we once prayed for. Just because we have them now, doesn't mean we will value them any less, and instead of being appreciative, we often make the blunder of taking it for granted. 

So, here's how you can practice gratitude, by - 

Thanking god for what you are blessed with. 
Thanking the people in your life who have stayed by your side through thick and thin. 
By not taking your loved ones for granted.
Letting your people know how much you love them and how blessed you are to have them in your life. 
Appreciate the things that others do for you, even if it's the smallest of things, because it is the intention that matters. 
Spread love and kindness whenever you can.

So, be grateful for what you are blessed with and thank god for the myriad blessings that have been showered on you. 

SPEND LESSER TIME ON SMART PHONES - Smart phones have become an essential part of our lives, but are they really that essential they we can carefreely let them hinder and hamper our physical and mental health. All you have to do is, ask the same question to yourself and let yourself know that, is it really worth it ? And you will get your answer. 

Yes it's obvious that we use our smart phones for work.
We use our smart phones to stay aware and gain knowledge. 
When it's essential, it's absolutely fine to spend time over our phones, but unnecessary usage of phone is something that we must definitely avoid. 

The first thing that we check after waking up is our phone and the last thing we check before going to bed is our phone, this habit clearly shows, how dependent we are on our phones and it is not just hampering our sleep cycle and days, but also impeding our health to a great extent. 

It's already high time for us, to bring this new change into our lives, by not spending unnecessary time over our phones, instead use that time over something productive in life and spare ourselves from the harm that it is causing us. 

TRAVEL - Travelling is a beautiful discovery and every time you travel to a new place, it feels like an experience of a lifetime. The More, The Better !! 

It is one of the most thrilling experience you can have in your lives, as it will broaden your horizons and will introduce you to a world you haven't experienced before. Travelling also introduces you to yourself in a much better way, because what you will experience and discover while travelling, cannot be attained by living a life with no travelling experience in it. 

Travelling has a lot to offer and every time you travel to a new place, the experience is all together very exciting and different. Go on a solo trip, and if the idea of a solo trip doesn't excite you, then just go on a trip with your partner, friends or family, but just go and travel !! The idea is to travel and explore the places you haven't traversed before and make the most of it. 

So, take a vow today, that you will not miss out on something that is so exhilarating, something that will give you a great exposure, something that helps you achieve peace of mind, de-stress you and a lot more and most essentially it will give you a million memories to cherish for the rest of your life, not just through pictures, but through the experience that you will gain.

So these are the 9 BEST NEW YEAR RESOLUTION IDEAS that I have written for you all, with a hope that this post will remind of you of the fact that, even a few little good and positive changes in your life, will change you and your life for the better.
