New Year is often seen as a time of rebirth, the chance to start anew. We all come up with the regular resolutions for the upcoming year (losing weight, seeing family more often and/or falling in love ), but often our ideas of what should change are too broad. This year, why not take a closer look into our lives and make decisions about ourselves then. These are some New Year’s resolutions probably worth considering:
1.Stop posting negative stuff on social media.
2. Travel more; whether it’s out of town or out of the country.
3. If you hate your job, quit your job. Remember: THE MONEY IS NOT WORTH IT.
4. Stop beating yourself up for skipping the gym on days you truly didn’t have time. But also, stop skipping the gym on days you had plenty of time to go.
5. Rid yourself of enemies. Apologize for what you did wrong and forgive those who have wronged you.
6. Rid yourself of “frenemies.” Don’t spend 2014 surrounded by people you secretly despise.
7. If you think somebody is cute, say “hi” and introduce yourself. Every relationship you have ever had started with a greeting.
8. Stop caring about how many people “like” your Instagram or facebook photos. If you like the photo enough to post it, what else matters? Social media anxiety is a waste of time.
9. Cross something off your bucket list. Sky dive, bungee jump, scuba dive, etc. Don’t make excuses as to why you can’t accomplish something, and check out
10. Stop hating yourself for eating dessert. A piece of birthday cake is a right, not a privilege.
11. Keep a journal. It doesn’t have to be something you use daily, but documenting your experiences is incredibly important. You’ll appreciate it later.
12. Strengthen relationships with family members. Blood is thicker than water.
13. Help strangers. “Pay it forward,” do good things for the world.
14. Conquer a fear.
15. Turn off your smartphone at dinner.
16. Try a fashion trend you never thought you could pull off. And, do it with confidence. Floppy hats, snap backs, Harem pants; you can do it!
17. Double-text without fear. THOU SHALL NOT BE IGNORED!
18. Shop locally, eat locally and recognize where your money is going. Shop at boutiques rather than chains (they aren’t all expensive — trust me).
19. Cry. When you’re happy and when you’re sad; embrace your emotions as they come.
20. Stop being so shallow. Next time you find yourself judging someone based on his or her appearance, imagine the person standing in front of you saying, “I’m beautiful.” You’ll start to believe it.
