You did it! You survived another year. Now that you’ve had too many cookies and enjoyed your share of eggnog, let’s find out how the next year gets even better with healthy lifestyle changes, more outdoor activities, and reconnection with loved ones. Here are five ideas for your New Years resolution list!
1. Spend more time with family
The year 2020 was a challenge for several reasons, but for many, the lack of time with loved ones was of great importance. As you ponder your New Year 2021 resolution ideas, plan to spend time with outdoor families like boating, fishing, bird watching, gardening, or hiking with those who have missed you the most this year.
2. Learn something new every day
Maybe you want to snap better photos, chat in a second language, get your boating license, learn to fish, or teach your child to fish (or at least finally bait their own hook!) – learn new things for a fun and exciting new year! !
3. Live a healthier life
It might be a cliché about New Year’s resolution ideas, but healthy lifestyle changes are never a bad idea, and there’s no bad time to start. If you need to turn the calendar over to start over, so be it! Whether you need to change your relationship with food or do more exercise, swapping a stressful, sedentary 2020 for an active life in 2021 – a year in which you also enjoy activities that the many do is a great idea for you Highlight advantages of nature New Years resolution list.
4. Support your local community
If the past year has taught us anything, the places and people in our church are essential. One of the New Year resolution ideas that can help strengthen your community and your bond with it is to find ways to support and explore it more deeply in the New Year. This could mean ordering take-out at the new independent restaurant you want to try, doing more local grocery shopping, volunteering at a local charity or donating goods, or even spending a few hours a month doing it, in a restaurant to fish fishing hole in the neighborhood. Share your local favorites with friends and family on social media to encourage others to get out and explore what’s waiting for them in their own backyards.
5. Explore your own creativity
Far too many people believe that they lack creativity. Let’s make this New Year the year we all explore our own creative sides – the health and emotional benefits of which are immeasurable! Take pictures, scribble, write poems, tell jokes, paint, dance, start this YouTube channel, carve wood, do what you’ve always wanted to try! Maybe you just find that you actually have some creativity, and the world is better off if you have your voice, point of view, and talent in it.
