It may be one of the hardest New Year resolutions, but limiting the time you spend in your smartphone or laptop can change your life drastically for the good.

2. Learn a new skill

No matter how busy you may be in your day-to-day life, there is always an opportunity to learn a new skill. Whether it’s cooking, crafts, sports, or something connected to your job, this resolution will bring you huge benefits.

3. Go on vacation

Let’s be real – it has probably been a while since your last vacation. You may have not taken a vacation recently due to money problems or lack of time, but a good vacation does not have to be long and expensive – even a 3-day trip to a nearby resort will set you in the right mood.

4. Be more confident

The lack of confidence negatively affects every aspect of our lives, from romance to career. In 2020, you need to start believing in yourself and that you are worthy of everything you wish for.

5. Buy less

In many cases, we don’t need some of the things we buy. If your old smartphone is working fine, you can go for another year without upgrading it. Buying less stuff will help you save money and declutter your home.

6. Get in shape

A popular New Year resolution is to lose weight, but it does not have to be limited to the number of your scales. Even if you keep you current weight but become a stronger and more resilient individual, that means it was worth it.

7. Enjoy every moment

When you are working towards achieving a major goal, everything else can seem meaningless. However, trying to enjoy every little good thing that happens to you will make you overall a much happier person.

8. Cook new foods

You and your family probably have a few staples that you eat every week, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get more adventurous in the kitchen. There are so many great flavours, cuisines, and products to try in 2020!

9. Get more sleep

This is another resolution that seems to be hardly doable, but can completely transform your life. Getting a minimum of 7 hours of sleep a day positively affects your mind, body, and performance.

10. Start a new hobby

While some hobbies are rather expensive and time-consuming, there are many things you can do in your spare time for leisure that cost little to nothing. Embroidery, diamond painting, or gardening are all great and accessible hobbies.

11. Spend more time outdoors

If you work in an office, you probably spend too little time outdoors. Spending weekends in the nature or even afternoons in your own backyard will make you feel refreshed and more connected to the enivornment.

12. Work on your relationships

We tend to take our family and long-time friends for granted, but that is exactly how relationships fall apart. If you love someone and care about them, it’s very important to let them know from time to time.

13. Eat better

Like most busy individuals, you are probably often skipping breakfast, eating a sandwich for dinner, and then have a huge meal at home for supper. However, these eating habits won’t do your health any good and you need to change them if you want to be healthy and fit.

14. Stop procrastinating

How often are you putting off an important task and choose to do something less useful like browsing social media? Ultimately, you are wasting your own time! Getting to a task immediately and then enjoying your free time is a much more gratifying strategy.

15. Celebrate little victories

Making New Year resolutions is relatively easy, but keeping them is way harder. That is why you need to start slow and celebrate every little step to completing every resolution. That way, you will know it is really happening and you are the reason it’s all possible.
