New Years Resolutions to Make for 2022
There’s a lot of uncertainty around the future, thanks to COVID, but that shouldn’t stop you from working on yourself and making your life better. With 2022 on the horizon, it may be time to make some resolutions, and here are some you could consider.
Expanding your social circle
Many people felt isolated during COVID and have found their social circles haven’t been the same since. However, there are ways you can make friends, no matter what your age. Look on social media for some local groups and make an effort to engage with people. You’ll soon find you make good friends and get used to socialising with others.
Improve your diet
Improving your diet doesn’t just have to be about weight loss. You can improve your diet to improve your mental and physical health. Some small changes you could resolve to make could include:
- Avoiding simple carbs like white bread or pasta
- Cutting right down on sugar and even artificial sweeteners
- Eating more plant-based meals
- Cutting down on meat
While these changes aren’t huge, and you’ll get used to them quickly, they can be very good for your health in the long-term.
Take up a new hobby or activity
Joining the gym in the new year is often a bit of a bust for some people. You are enthusiastic for a while, but that January gloom kicks in, and it can be so hard to keep going. Consider taking up a new activity instead, such as kickboxing in Reading, so you can get fit, have fun, and learn a new skill at the same time. Kickboxing is getting increasingly popular as it gives you a full body workout, while also giving you self-defence skills.
Another reason to choose an activity over going to the gym is that it’s a good way to build a social circle. Many clubs have a social side and let you meet people with the same interests.
If you’re thinking of resolutions for 2022, it’s worth thinking outside the box a little. Which things can you really benefit from and what will really change your life? Once you know this, you’re more likely to stick to your resolutions throughout the year and into the next. For example, going to the gym and going on a fad diet might only be a short-term thing, but if you make lifestyle changes that make you feel good, you’re more likely to keep it going.
