Most would agree that sticking to New Years Resolutions is tricky during the best of times, and planning resolutions while in the midst of a pandemic can be extra challenging. The most popular resolutions, like more exercise, saving money, and eating healthy, are difficult to get excited about when you are burdened with every day stressors.
Don’t let this stop you from making efforts at self-improvement! Choose simple resolutions that may add less stress and still help you to meet your goals in a safe way.
Here are some ideas that can be safely done at home:
- Start doing daily yoga or stretches with your partner
- Become a plant owner
- Book doctor’s visits that you’ve been avoiding
- Try a new recipe book or a new food
- Read a new book
- Explore a new hobby
- Listen to new music
Branching out and trying new things can be an excellent way to inject some fun and liveliness in your new year. A resolution does not have to be something overcomplicated; it can be a simple change to brighten up your day. You may surprise yourself by how the little things can make a big impact.
