The start of a new year is the perfect occasion to stop and ask yourself a few questions about your lifestyle and health. Just in case you’re lacking direction, here are seven resolutions for becoming a better human being or, at the very least, for feeling better about yourself.
Setting an objective and achieving it. There’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment. Whether it involves stopping a bad habit or starting something new, the important thing is to set yourself a realistic objective and to do everything possible in order to meet it.
Donating to an organization. Whether it's money, material goods, or your time and skills, giving is rewarding, both for you and the recipients.
Traveling. For some it’s an adventure, for others it’s a time to relax. Whatever the case, a trip is the occasion to broaden your horizons and stock up on some great memories.
Cleaning up. Whether you want to de-clutter your thoughts, your finances, your circle of friends, or your home, a good cleanup is always useful in starting the year on the right foot.
Giving a helping hand. There are many ways to help others: help a friend to move, babysit your nieces and nephews, or do some shopping for elderly parents.
Spending more time with your loved ones. Taking a break from the worries of daily life to build a closer relationship with family members is a rewarding experience we too often neglect. And yet it’s priceless!
Taking care of yourself. Treating yourself to some personal care once in awhile does you good — eat well, exercise, have fun and spoil yourself a little bit.
