2022 New Years Resolution Inspiration
Some people hate New Year’s resolutions, but I think they’re a fun little way of helping you set goals for the coming twelve months. Yes, you can argue that you shouldn’t wait until the end of a year to start setting goals, but it does seem like a good place to hit the reset button and start again.
So, here are a few resolution ideas for you to carry into 2022 with you:
Learn a new language
Expand your knowledge and learn a new language in the next twelve months. Okay, you won’t be able to learn a whole language in this time, but you can start your commitment to it. Set yourself a target of doing a certain number of language lessons throughout the year. With apps like Duolingo, you can set a target of doing a lesson a day – it keeps your streak for you, so it helps with motivation.
Save more, spend less
Make 2022 the year you finally start saving. Set yourself a target for this time next year, and work out how you’ll be able to save for it. A good way to give yourself some motivation is to pick something to save for. This could be a house, in which case you can look at mortgage quotes and see how much you might need for a downpayment. If you already have some money saved away, you might be able to reach the required amount for the downpayment by next year, giving you a big saving motivation.
Regardless of your aims, saving more and spending less are great resolutions to have. They help you gain control of your finances and live a life that’s got a lot less financial stress in it!
Read more books
Knowledge is power, and we could all do with being a bit more educated. Reading books is a fantastic way of learning new things and escaping from the real world. Even if you read fictional books, you still learn a lot from them. Again, set a goal for the coming year – aim for 12 books in a year, that’s one a month. Some of you might breeze through this, while others could struggle.
Eat less junk food
Health-based resolutions are always popular in the New Year. However, instead of trying to commit to a gym routine, you’ll never stick to, why don’t you focus on your nutrition instead? Set yourself a target to eat less junk food than you normally do. A good way to do this is by putting a limit on how much junk food you eat every month. Limit yourself to two meals per month, and see how you do. By the time 2023 rolls around, you should be in much better health from the healthier diet.
There are literally limitless resolutions you can make in the New Year. Realistically, there’s no such thing as a good or bad resolution – it all depends on you. Perhaps you’ve been able to find some inspiration in this post to help you have a better year in 2022.
