New Year’s Resolution Cheat Sheet!

Monday, December 30th, 2019

To say that the pressure of having resolutions to start the new year with is high would be a bit of an understatement, wouldn’t it? All these years, and yet, the great trend of “New Year’s Resolution” hasn’t gone away and left us alone already! Which basically means, like every other year, we are doomed to making our resolutions (yes, yes, even we’re going to start going to the gym this year), and then doomed to fail.

But what if we found you a cheat sheet of kinds? A way to make keeping your resolutions a little bit easier. It’s not foolproof of course (because if you are determined not to keep it up, what can we possibly do). But if you’re genuinely trying to be sincere and make an actual effort, how about you try these methods to make the way slightly easier.

1. Use the ‘Buddy System’

Everything in life is easier with a friend (well, except how to stop laughing when you’re both guffawing). There will be days when you want to give up, there will be days when you’re friend wants to give up. It’s ok, you’ve got each other’s backs, like always. When one of you runs low on motivation, the other will immediately boost it up. Because, let’s face it, just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we don’t need to still be dragged out of bed on some days. Whether it’s suffering through morning jogs, or trying a new class, or hobby, having a friend along for the ride always makes it more fun.

2. Keep track

Keep a separate diary or journal to keep track of your progress every day. And make sure to make an entry every single day (even if you don’t follow through with your resolution on any particular day – that’s ok). As the days progress, you’ll realize how much work you’ve actually been putting in (as well as seeing how many times you’ve been slacking off). Seeing it right there in black and white really helps in refocusing yourself. Works wonders every time.

3. Don’t date it! 

No, this isn’t a romantic comedy reference. We’re just talking about regular calendar related dates. The biggest issue with starting any new thing up, whether a resolution or a good old-fashioned habit, is that we always put off starting it, and then it turns into this big production in our heads, and the pressure just unnecessarily builds up. And for what? We’re the ones who are turning that looming Monday into such a scary monster. It’s high time to stop putting so much importance on the day or date we are to start something, and instead just focus on that which we’re supposed to start. No more being worried about Mondays, and 1sts, and 15ths, and just get on with it. Put the focus back where it should be and just do it.

4. Hit the Start button (Again!)

You’re human. We know. And people will stumble, fail, and fall. It’s but natural. There is nothing to be ashamed about. What you shouldn’t lose focus of is that you need to get back up and get back on track. There is no shame in restarting, and it doesn’t matter how many times you have to do it. Remember, resolutions are for you own betterment. You make them because you want to see some improvement or change in some aspect of your life. As long as you remember your intentions as to why you got onto this path to begin with, you should be able to get back onto it. Everyone is struggling to keep up with the promises they make to themselves. You’re not the only one, so don’t be afraid to keep at it.

We wish you a very happy, prosperous, and satisfying new year. May you be happier, younger at heart, and power through everything that life throws your way.

Happy New Year!

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

Tis the season to be jolly and that shouldn’t just be for you. How about we spread the cheer a bit? Holidays can be a tough time for a lot of people – those you are living alone, those who recently lost a loved one, those who are suffering from depression, those who are stuck in hospitals for their own or their loved ones’ ailments, those going through a cash crunch, and so many others. You never really know anyone else’s story, or what kind of issues and difficulties they might be facing. So take the chance this holiday season to spread some joy and just be a tad bit nicer (we know you’re already a nice person, but how about we pump it up a bit). Here are some ideas to spread some warmth around this chilly season.

1. Buy from local stores and artisans

Everyone knows that holidays also mean shopping. Gifts for your family and friends, for your office Secret Santa, decorations, plum cake, chocolates, it’s actually quite never-ending. Support your local communities and buy local instead of hitting the mall or large retail stores. It might seem like a slight thing for you, but it means the world to store/artisan you purchase from.

2. Donate

For those alone or abandoned, it’s an especially trying time of the year. It’s lonely, it’s cold, and it ends up being quite sad. Luckily, you can help by donating. Whether it’s gifts, money, or honestly, the best one, time. Whether it’s orphanages, old age homes, or animal shelters, everyone could do with a little extra love this holiday season.

3. Call up

It might sound like a weirdly small thing, but take the time to make some calls to people you haven’t spoken to in a while. Just to check in, say hi, and wish them happy holidays. You never know how a small hello from you might brighten someone’s day.

New Year Resolutions for the Creative Soul

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Resolution-buffs, the ones adept at making New Year resolutions, probably made their laundry list of promises/goals at the stroke of midnight. If you don’t belong to this prestigious, albeit mildly terrifying class, you’re likely to be without any resolutions. But, fret not, for you haven’t missed your chance to make some yet. We’ve come up with a list of purposeful, but fun resolutions to brighten the coming year. Think you’d like to try any of these?

Try a new fitness regime

Many of us find gym workouts stifling. Running, while wonderful for health, can get a little boring, especially if you’re running alone. So, why not try something different this year? Why not try a fun activity that also helps you stay fit? Maybe join a Zumba class, or take up a crash course in boxing or martial arts? If you’re the more adventurous kind, you could even try your hand at the latest fitness trend – pole dancing!

Read more

We can never read enough. There are so many wonderful books out there that there’s always room for another book. So, try to increase your reading list this year. If you read 10 books last year, try to read 20 this year. Even adding 10-20 extra books to your list will do wonders for your vocabulary and knowledge. For those who don’t read, this might be a good time to start. If books are not your thing, at least try to read online articles. These could be on travel, fashion, cars, virtually anything. But do try to spend a few minutes of your day reading something worthwhile.

Create

When it comes to creating, there is no end to the exciting stuff you can make. It can be a DIY activity a painting or even a poem, there’s always something wonderful that can be done. This year, try your hand at new creative activities, something you haven’t do before. If you’ve always used watercolors, try experimenting with glass paints. If you love making DIY lamps, try your hand at making scented candles. Add to your existing skills by trying something new.

Explore new music

We all love our own playlists and swear that it has the best music anyone has ever heard. While this might be true, listening to only ‘your kind of music’ might be counterproductive to your music taste because you end up listening to the same kind of music.Hence, you won’t expand your knowledge or taste. This year, make it a point to seek out new song suggestions. Give these new songs a listen, no matter how weird their titles may seem. This will help you familiarize yourself with new genres and artists!

Take up a course

We all did a happy jig the minute we got done with our education. Who doesn’t want to leave behind tedious coursework and stressful examinations, right? But, these two activities are actually great to keep our grey cells active and alert. So, this new year, try to get back in learning mode to boost your intelligence and knowledge. If you don’t have the time to travel to college, take up an online course. Several online education companies are offering reputed courses to help you learn a range of subjects.
