Exercise. Go on a diet to reduce weight. Save money. Build a better budget. These are just some items you probably already have on your list of annual resolutions which you may or may not keep until the magic of the New Year fades. (That always falls around February). So if you need ideas for year-round doable New Year’s resolutions for 2022, we’re here to help. Include these easy-to-keep goals on your list this year.
1. Use up your vacation leaves for actual vacations
Don’t be afraid to file those leave credits and take a break from work. And by break, we don’t mean sneaking email replies throughout the day while you sit on the couch and contemplate a Netflix series. Go out! Book a room at a resort, spend time out of town with your friends to refuel your creative juices, or even go sit by the park and read a book. Maximize that vacation with a change in scenery and whatever you do, don’t work.
2. Avoid leaving messages on read or unread
It’s not a crime to fall off the face of the earth and respond to messages two weeks later but it is good practice to inform people about what’s going on. You could simply and honestly send them a message with an explanation that you’re not in the proper state of mind to speak with them. Leaving people on read could come across as rude but if you tell them you’ll get back to them soon, any decent human being will understand. It shows that you respect them and their time. We promise, no one will come after you for telling them you’re not in the mood to talk to them (unless you say it in a bad way).
3. Cook something new every two weeks
Limit social media use
Spend more time with friends and family
Prioritize your mental health
Read more books
Start by reading for 30 minutes a day and build it up to an hour a day. From there, you can challenge yourself to read one book a week. You can even sign up for websites like Audible if you prefer audiobooks. Check our list of non-fiction reads if you’re not sure what to start reading.
