6 New Year's Resolutions For a Happier 2022
How are you going to make 2022 the best year you’ve had so far? When 2021 was just as much of a whirlwind as 2020, getting a fresh start is a good way to kick off the new year with intentions.
Instead of making yourself hold to unrealistic goals that you might only keep up with a few days into the new year, take a look at some of the new year's resolutions we think might stick :
Only Do The Exercise You Love: One of the most common new years resolutions is to lose weight - come January 1st, you’ll find the gyms packed and home workout equipment out of stock but more often than not people find themselves bored or falling back into the same patterns. Most people associate the gym reluctance, so it's important to find a workout you enjoy and ease into that rather than forcing yourself to do exercises that make you miserable or feel pain.
Cook at Home More: Cooking at home can seem like a chore but more often than not, it's a skill worth investing time into. Not only does cooking from home save you money in the long run, overall it's much healthier for you. Cooking from home more often also allows you to control what you put in your body, explore new tastes or flavors, and can give you the perfect excuse to show off your new skills to family and friends.
Invest in Your Mental Health: Whether it's therapy with a professional, buying a new self-help book, or figuring out the ideal work/life balance, there isn’t a better time to start prioritizing and investing time into your mental health. For most of us, the last few years have seen a huge shift in what we call normal and it's important to take a moment to recognize how that might affect our lives.
Get Outside and Breathe: Make the effort to get outside more this year - whether it's a weekend hiking getaway, a beach trip or simply making the point to walk your dog every day after dinner, the benefits of being outside in nature are vast.
Buy a New Bra: If you’re like millions of women this year and your body has changed, now is a great time to get a new bra to start the year off right. Handful has a wide range of versatile bras to get yourself comfortable and ready to take on any challenges that might come your way.
Declutter, Reorganize, and Redecorate: Sometimes the change we need isn’t within but in our physical surroundings. If you’ve been feeling bogged down and unhappy in your home space, now is the perfect time to assess your surroundings and throw out what's no longer serving you.
There's never a bad time to start with new habits or motivations, and whether you meet all your goals or only keep with one, it's important to make sure that your resolutions are realistic and to take them one step at a time.
