The year 2023 is quickly approaching, and now is the time to make some significant yet uncomplicated adjustments to our lives to increase levels of contentment with some New Year Resolutions. But making New Year resolutions and following them isn’t always easy. To begin, they are typically very challenging and are intended to be followed over the entire year. But how often do we successfully accomplish our resolution goals?

Attending regular yoga classes, going to the gym, eating healthy, travelling, etc., are some of the common New Year resolutions we have seen and heard over the years. And we all know that they don’t last longer than a week.

There are a lot of crazy people who come up with strange solutions to try to fix the problems in their lives. Some unusual New Year resolutions include giving up social media entirely, making at least one new friend per week, publishing a book, and going for a walk in the forest, amongst many others. Pheww! We are tired of listening to them. And so, we have devised a list of unconventional New Year resolutions that you can adhere to throughout the year. Not only will they be enjoyable to follow, but they will also assist you in improving your way of life.

Resolution 1: To Stay Away from Social Media

New Year Resolutions Social media

Because social media has taken over our lives, we spend a lot of time scrolling through the photographs of our friends or stalking someone we have grown to dislike. Earlier people used to wake up to the sounds of birds, but today, the obnoxious alarm clock constantly tells us that we are already running late. Because of our growing addiction to social media, we frequently fail to make productive use of time. Not only does this reduce the amount of work we get done, but it also makes it harder for us to focus. Our restlessness, impatience, and intolerance have increased as a result. So, spending lesser time on social media and more on productive activities is one of the best New Year resolutions, to begin with.

Resolution 2: To Walk More and Drive Less

New Year Resolutions Walk more

Now, this is not just for environment-conscious people but everyone who believes in sustainable environmental growth. The growing number of vehicles does add a lot of pollution to the environment, but one doesn’t need to be an environmentalist and go protesting against it. A small step by every individual can make a lot of difference. So, if you want to bring a change, be the change. If you are going to go to the next store for your daily needs, try walking instead of taking out your vehicle. Look for carpool options while going to the office. Or if you own a car, you can give others a ride. This step of yours will help you reduce your carbon footprint…one small step at a time.

Resolution 3: To Read One Book A Month

New Year Resolutions read books

Let’s admit. From the moment any one of us opens our eyes in the morning till the moment we close our eyes at night, we are glued to digital screens. This prevents us from being productive and has adverse effects on our health. On the other hand, reading a book is like an exercise for the brain. It not only reduces stress but also improves concentration and the ability to focus. Therefore, as a part of your New Year resolutions, make it a goal to spend less time in front of a digital screen and more time engaged in an activity that is useful and will strengthen the brain cells, such as reading a book.

Resolution 4: To Stop Using Credit Cards

New Year Resolutions No credit card

With the advancement of e-commerce, shopping has become a daily routine. Be it garments, jewellery or groceries, we tend to order everything online. And with many financial institutions floating many offers, a credit card is our preferred transaction choice. However, we only become aware of the magnitude of our spending once the monthly statement on our credit card arrives. Did you know that the total value of the global market for payments made using credit cards reached $ 477.63 billion in the year 2021? It is important to keep spending under control to keep a check and balance of the finance. And the first step towards this is to limit the use of credit cards.

Resolution 5: To Spend Less on Shopping

New Year Resolution spend less on shopping

Shopping can be a therapy for many. It gives instant pleasure and satisfaction. We often tend to shop for things we might not need, later regretting it. Budget shopping or spending less amount on essential items can be a worthwhile New Year resolutions. If you are already thinking about how to minimise your budget, then here is a useful tip from us. Register with the Panel Station for free and answers surveys to share your valuable opinion. Upon completing each survey, you will thus earn points. Now is the fun part. The points you earn for sharing opinion, can be redeemed as shopping vouchers from your favourite brands. Or even better – redeem your points as cash. Now, you can use vouchers or cash to purchase your essentials or complete your wishlist.

Resolution 6: To Be in And Out of The Bath in 10 Minutes

New year resolution Quick bath

Although it might appear strange at first, many people believe that the bathroom is the safest place in the entire home. As a result, you tend to spend additional time in the toilet, frequently practising your singing abilities or catching up with old friends on the phone because this is where no one can infringe on your privacy. But you have to kick this habit out if you ever want to be successful in life. It is not nearly as challenging as one might think and is certainly not impossible. Installing a simple wall clock in the restroom is all that is required to ensure that you are never late for anything again. Less time in the bathroom leaves you more time for other work.

Resolution 7: To Not Watch a Web Series in One Go

New Year resolution webseries

As we said, today’s world is completely dependent on digital screens, and with the proliferation of OTT platforms, there is no longer any reason to leave the house to watch a movie or a play. We spend countless hours scanning the newest movies and shows on web platforms. We keep saying to ourselves, “just one more episode and this will be the last,” before we realise that we have been viewing the web series well past midnight and our eyes have turned red. Here’s a possible answer to this problem. Make a plan for the day and set aside a specific amount of time for fun and entertainment. The best would be to spend some quality time with your family, and you don’t need a New Year resolution for it. There are many other amazing things to do that are more entertaining than sitting down to watch an entire web series in one go.

So, To Sum It Up

Finding the inner strength to do great things and fulfil one’s aspirations and wishes is the primary focus of New Year resolutions. It demands determination and passion. We all know that the journey of thousand miles begins with one step. Setting goals for the New Year and working diligently to achieve them can help bring about significant improvements. Now that we have given you the list of weird but doable New Year resolutions, we hope you kick start the coming New Year with great energy and determination.

        Эти 7 идей довольно интересны. Но, как говорится, все должно быть в меру. Для меня актуально хождение пешком, занятия спортом. Что касается соц.сетей и кредитных карт: кредитные карты все таки это благо, если конечно есть самодисциплина и самоконтроль. Да еще это и выгодно-начисляются бонусы за покупки.Соц сети-конечно лучше живое общение, но можно и там немного посидеть. Чтение- это то, без чего невозможно развитие личности. Но чтение книг должно быть выборочное-не засорять свою голову ширпотребом.

    • Menurutku setiap hari dalam kehidupan hsr ada resolusi,walaupun tak terlihat signifikan namun kita hrs terus mencoba resolusi di setiap kehidupan kita,teruslah berusaha agar hari ini lebih baik dari hari kemarin,dan hari esok berjuanglah agr lebih baik dr hari ini,semga di tahun depan semua harapan kita dapat terwujud

    it is good to know all these things listed about and want to work against it in terms of reduction of all of them, so which the writer suggested it to be stopped will not help but I will rather suggest it to be reduce for gone are the days traveling was not easy but now you can even stop traveling to visit someone and rather place a call to see how they are doing at their end, what I want to say is things can not be changed back to some years ago but we can reduce the usage of something to stay healthy.

    The reduction in screen time as well-I do not want my child dependent on one for entertainment, I’d rather she enjoy toys, books and the outdoors.

  39. It’s true, creating goals and planning changes for the new year is easy, it’s really hard to achieve; I believe that the good start is always to take care of your mind and body, detach yourself from small things and what sucks our energy, it’s good to put social networks aside a little, try to buy less, eat more, be sustainable in terms of the use of resources from the environment in which we live, etc. are changes that together add up and open the way for a healthier new year and with great chances of prosperity in everything.

  45. Las resoluciones que aparecen me gustan mucho, yo le agregaría otra más. Hacer actividad física, no importa que actividad lo importante es sudar y no necesitas gimnasio o gastar dinero hay miles de video que te ayudan. Y una personal que tratare de hacer más orar y dar gracias cada día por cada cosa.

  46. Mi recomendación seria dejar el pasado atrás quedarme con los buenos momentos y dar gracias a Dios por tener a mis seres queridos conmigo.

  47. I will definitely be trying some of those New Year resolutions and can or will hopefully be successful in all or some of them that I choose to go with

  48. Work out a better new year resolution, hope to double wealth and learning new sets of skill.

  49. My new year resolution….Healthier lifestyle
    This is always top on the list while making resolutions. Such resolutions include losing weight, gaining weight, starting to exercise, walking a particular distance every day, going on diet etc. It is always encouraging to make such targets, but make sure such goals are achievable. And the trick is to start slow so that you don’t lose steam midway.

    Es cierto, la tecnología también ha perjudicado grandemente haciendo que muchas personas la usen todo el tiempo y ya no salgan ni siquiera a hacer ejercicio o caminar además de convivir. Es triste cómo el estilo de vida se opta por lo rápido y fácil como la comida rápida. Se dejan de fomentar la lectura y deberían implementarse metas más alcanzables

    I do not make resolutions anymore. Instead I get myself a To Do List and put on all the things i want to get done and tick it off as I go. And then on the 31st Dec I just tell myself that for the next 365 days I am going to live my best life. And choose happiness and to stay as positive as possible.

  53. 1 – I’ll try my best to be happy the whole year.
    2 – No matter what , but I’ll smile and will make environment comfortable .
    3 – I’ll help everyone and will never hate anyone for any particular reason.

    5 – This year I’ll do those things which I failed to do last year.
    6 – I’ll remove every negetive influencers from my life .

    If actions contradict my resolutions; resolutions become meaningless and depressing.
    So, Focus on Action.

    Happy new year.
    Be happy and smile .

  60. When implementing New Year’s resolutions, the most important thing is an appropriate, methodical approach, i.e. at the beginning, some basic questions must be answered: – whether the goal I am pursuing is my own or whether I want to meet someone else’s expectations; – what I will really gain by achieving a particular resolution; – what personal resources (possibilities) and limitations (deficits) I have to achieve the goal; – a concrete plan aimed at achieving a positive result (for example, if I set the goal of reducing my own weight, I should not stop at such a general resolution, but make it concrete, for example, by not eating sweets on certain days).
