Traditional Resolutions vs. Non-Traditional Resolutions
This is the year to revamp those traditions into more. Make sure you have a few non-traditional resolutions in your mix. Here are a few ideas:
- Focus on a passion
- Do at least one random act of kindness each month
- Give out more compliments
- Read a good old fashioned book off-line
- Keep a journal
- Reconnect with a friend or family member (I need to reconnect with some of my close cousins)
- Start a new hobby
- Send handwritten letters or notes
- Take a drive without a destination and enjoy the scenery around you
- Learn something new
- Less social media and more time on positive blogs like this one:)
Whatever your resolutions may be, write them down and cross them off as you complete them. Maybe you don’t do resolutions….set some as goals or put them on your bucket list and do the same. Take it one day at a time. 364, 363, 362… new days to make changes for the better you and those around you.
Never forget to practice gratitude and remember what you have to be thankful for each and every day.
Happy 2021! Be the best you! Stay safe, healthy and positive
