New Year must begin with New Year resolution ideas. Let's make practical and achievable promises without being harsh on ourselves. Some resolution ideas may sound very simple but putting those plans into action may be life-changing. The resolution ideas must be wholesome and must improve our lives in the long run. Let these ideas of 2023 bring joy to our hearts.
Reflecting Over the Previous Year
Making New Year resolution ideas without reflecting on the past year is next to impossible. Reflecting on the gains and achievements of the previous year is as important as reflecting on losses and failures. Having a clear idea about what worked well for us and what didn't in 2022, is essential for effective planning for 2023's New Year resolutions.
New Year resolution ideas are pivotal to the goals we set. Goal setting is usually done for all different areas of life; health, finance, career, relationship, travel, and personal growth. These can be further broken down into smaller subcategories. Keeping all these in mind I have made a list of New Year Resolution ideas that cater to all the above-mentioned areas of life.
Ideas to Improve Health
Health deserves priority over every other thing. Speaking of health, it is not only our physical health which matters but our mental health is of utmost significance. Definitely, the focus is on working out and eating a balanced healthy diet, and drinking a lot of water. However, there are some New Year resolution ideas and a few more simple additions with these for our mental health. Meditate for a few minutes daily after working out. If you are walking on a walker indoors, try brisk walking outdoors in a park, amidst lush nature. Meditation calms the busy mind and nature harmonizes our mind and body. These little steps will bring a huge difference to life.
Ideas for Finance
New Year resolution ideas, when it comes to 2023's finance planning, involve saving more for the unexpected, as taught by the Covid-stricken years. Investing in more secured pockets which can easily be liquidated, is the key. Identifying what we need and not what we want is important for buying less and hoarding less. Buying when necessary is ideal. A reduced purchase will help in multiple uses of things we already have and result in less wastage and help us declutter. One of the ways is to take a baby step toward minimalism.
Ideas for Travel
Dalai Lama's words, “Once a year go somewhere you have never been before”, form my 2023's travel resolution. Traveling is the best teacher and healer. So traveling is an important part of most of our lives. One of the major New Year resolution ideas is to travel to new places in 2023, places which I have never visited before. I also have another idea to add. We often travel far and wide and do not visit the important places in our home time. This year the weekends will be occupied with visiting significant places in my hometown.
Deep and meaningful relationships matter. So this year the first and foremost idea is to get rid of toxic relationships. We must value and spend more time and energy on relationships that matter to us most. One of my New Year resolution ideas, when it comes to relationships, is to communicate meaningfully. These days we are constantly in touch with each other through WhatsApp but this year I have decided to spend time calling and talking to friends. I want to hear my friends' voices. To add to this I have also decided to make the effort of meeting and spend time with people who matter.
Ideas for Personal Growth
Developing hobbies and learning new things keep us happy as we realize that as a people we have not stopped growing. Regarding learning new things one of my New Year resolution ideas is to learn the ukulele. It is my personal choice, you must choose for yourself. Develop hobbies, maybe something which you enjoyed as a child. Learn a new language or start painting or take up gardening.
If you love music, why not try your hand at making music, not listening to it? Gadgets such as the MIDI Pedalboard can help you create your own sound and experiment further to see what you are capable of.
One of my 2023 New Year resolutions is to be surrounded by more plants at home.
Looking Forward to an Awesome 2023
New Year resolution ideas must be such that we focus on the self. Self-care is not selfishness but is the key to being a happy, peaceful, knowledgeable, and confident person. This version of the self is the most that our loved ones desire and this better version finally will make a gorgeous year.
