7 Easily Achievable New Year's Resolutions
“This year will be different” is what we always say before choosing a New Year’s resolution, but we usually fail at staying consistent with goals we set. According to Business Insider, 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. Often, we set broad goals that are hard to achieve and require a lot of time. Nature’s Script wants to help you become the best version of yourself this year. Choose from our list of easily achievable New Year’s resolutions and set yourself up for success in 2019.
1.) Experience something new
Whether it’s going to a new restaurant, trying a new activity or visiting a place you’ve never been to before, you should look forward to adding some spontaneity into your life. We frequently get caught up in our work and obligations, which can create a mundane routine. New experiences can lead to a more open mindset, bringing added happiness into your life. Who knows – you might even find your new favorite travel destination or hobby in the process!
2.) Drink more water
Eating healthy daily may seem like an intimidating task – who doesn’t like indulging in sweet and salty foods? That’s why we’re challenging you to drink more water, an easy and attainable goal. Harvard Health recommends drinking four to six cups of water a day, although you can drink more than that. Drinking more water can flush bacteria from your bladder, regulate blood pressure, aid digestion, protect your organs, prevent dehydration and much more.
3.) Manage stress better
Managing stress can be difficult with the number of responsibilities we face every day. Some days it may feel like the world is relying on us. Take a step back, take a deep breath and realize that you can’t do everything – and you shouldn’t have to. Adding Nature’s Script CBD products into your life may also help in aiding your stress and anxiety levels. CBD contains natural properties that promote a calming and relaxing state of mind for even most tense situations.
4.) Spend less time on social media
In 2019, Nature’s Script wants you to stop worrying about what others are always up to and start focusing on yourself. Social Media Today reported that young adults spend an average of nine hours a day on social media platforms. Constantly scrolling through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram may be a great way to pass the time, but we can get way to caught up in what other people are doing. Nature's Script wants you to put down your phone and experience your best life instead of comparing yourself to everyone else and staring at a screen in 2019.
5.) Randomly call or text a loved one
Find a time when you have nothing going on and reach out to a friend or loved one. Holidays, birthdays, and special occasions do not count – it should be unexpected! You don’t know how much they’ll enjoy hearing from you out of the blue. Calling a loved one can also lift your mood. Making other people happy can profoundly affect our emotions.
6.) Challenge yourself
We want you to challenge yourself in new and refreshing ways. Whether it be trying to get more sleep, learning a new task, or becoming active, find something that motivates you. Remember that doing 20 more sit-ups and getting 30 more minutes of sleep at night is an improvement and that challenging yourself must start somewhere. Begin with simple challenges and work your way up. Be consistent and work on improving yourself.
7.) Indulge in what you enjoy
As long as it’s healthy and legal, go for it! Cut yourself some slack and be kind to yourself (and others). Go see more live events, be creative, volunteer more, sing at the top of your lungs, indulge in the things that you love. After all, next year will be here before you know it, so enjoy this year doing what makes you happy!
