While some people decide to join a gym or get a boob job to enhance their assets, others pledge to quit smoking or eat more vegetables. All of these things can have a positive effect, but why not think outside the box? There are plenty of ways to improve your life, so conjure up some unique resolutions and stick to them. If you need inspiration, here are some ideas to help you out.
It can be easy to slip into a monotonous regime, so do something different at least once a month. Choose an activity that scares, challenges, inspires, excites or motivates you and record all the events you complete. There are many things you can do when you put your mind to it so, pick a new sport, set yourself a physical challenge or simply take the family out for the day – it’s that simple.
We all lead busy lives, but you must make time for your loved ones. You only get one family so try to visit them as much as you can or give them a call from time to time. If they live abroad, book your flights well in advance (so the prices don’t go up) and get a few fixed dates in the diary. As for friends, arrange as many social events as possible and keep in touch via social networks. It’s easy to lose contact, so it’s essential to make an effort whenever possible.
If you always holiday in Cornwall or head to the Costa del Sol for a bit of sun – go somewhere different this year. Head off to a foreign land and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a new place. Taste new food, learn about different cultures and see what life is like on the other side of the world. There are some great holiday deals online, but if you’re a little strapped for cash you can always stay closer to home. The UK is well-known for its beautiful scenery and seaside resorts – just don’t go somewhere you’ve been before.
If you get the travelling bug or just want to learn a foreign tongue, take up a different language. There are many tutorial videos online or you could buy a CD from your local travel store. Alternatively, sign up to an evening class where you’ll meet other like-minded people, or ask a friend who can speak the language to help you out. Want to try your new skills out? Then head abroad yourself and test your vocabulary and accent with the locals – what better way to practice?
