1. Get in shape
Losing weight or trying to get fit is pretty hard, but it’s the thing most of us think we need to achieve. Combined with different variations, like starting to exercise or eating less, this resolution is probably the most popular one. What you want to do is you need to remember, that results of your work won’t come that fast. Don’t rush, start with small things and be patient. Keep a track of your results weekly, not daily. Get yourself some workout equipment to home so it will constantly remind you of your goal.
2. Stop procrastinating
This problem affects the best of us. One of the important things to understand to beat this habit is that the hardest thing to do is to start the task. To help yourself with that, try the “2-minutes rule”. If something takes less time to do than two minutes, do it right now. It might sound simple and stupid, but this way of thinking really helps in starting any challenging task, because a lot of them you can break down into simple two-minute processes.
3. Become more active
In our digital world, sometimes people spend whole days and weeks in front of the computer, that’s why they want to bring some more activity into their lives. If you are one of those people, remember, that such an inactive lifestyle is not so good for your health, this will add some motivation for your actions. Also, try involving your friends and family. This way the activity will be more fun and you will have someone to help to restrain yourself from bailing out.
4. Become more self-confident
Self-confidence is a very important thing, which affects your life in major ways. If you’re lacking in this department the best thing you can do is to try to knowingly get out of your comfort zone. Don’t talk yourself out of things you are afraid to do, communicate more and meet new people, challenge yourself and give yourself credit for what you do. Don’t overthink your actions too much, just be yourself and don’t try to please everyone.
5. Earn more money
