Like every other year, it is time to set some New Year’s resolutions for a better year ahead. Although rubbing off the COVID-19 pandemic blues and creating your travel bucket list has become the new way to go, other commitments toward a healthier lifestyle, community service and much more are also taking precedence.

This year, fill your resolution list with easy, good-for-you goals. Try one of these simple lifestyle tweaks each day, and you will not only jumpstart a healthier body and mind, but you will also feel fantastic and so psyched to make 2022 your best year ever.

Take The Stairs Instead of the Elevator Once in a While:

Here are some easy New Year’s resolutions that are simple to keep and commit to: 

The COVID-19 pandemic had forced us to the confines of our homes, and the ensuing work from home concept restricted our options of stepping out.

However, with improving times, we have started resuming usual activities like going to work, travelling and exercising outdoors. But if you are still finding it difficult to make time to get back to your fitter self, a few simple tricks such as ditching the elevators and escalators and taking the stairs might just work.

This is one of the easiest New Year’s resolutions to keep. All you need is a bit of time management, comfortable formal attire (if you’re going to work) or workout clothes to ease movements, and you’re good to go!

Learn A New Skill:

You can make this more interesting by setting small goals. Record your daily progress and gradually increase your target distance covered or steps taken.

Many of us start the new year by bringing in a big change into our lives through New Year’s resolutions, and what can be better than learning a new skill? From baking to playing an instrument and learning crochet, the list can have a variety of skill sets.

Invest your free time in learning something new and see yourself doing some amazing things which you probably never thought you could.

Set realistic targets and reward yourself when you achieve them. This will not only help you remain focused but you will also witness all-around personal growth.

Build a Better Budget:

If there’s one New Year’s resolution that will help you the most in the long run, it’s making a vow to save more money. Before you head back to the office, outline a budget that works for you and make a plan for how you’ll stick to it. Apps like Mint and You Need a Budget (YNAB) can help you do this as painlessly as possible.

Create a Cleaning Schedule You’ll Stick To:

Keeping your home tidy without doing what feels like a deep clean every week can feel like a big ask. It’s true that you may be under cleaning some tricky spots, but it’s also true that you may be overdoing it elsewhere.

Drink Less Alcohol:

You already know you don’t need to drink to have fun — and so why not make this year the one you cut back and join the sober curious movement? Doing so could improve your mood, sleep, skin and immune system. Plus, it’ll also help you save money.

So Let’s rock 2022 healthy!
