Hi, everyone, 2020 is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I am so ready. So ready for the new year. Now I am going to tell you 50 New Year’s resolutions ideas.
1 Explore A Creative Hobby
Make it a point to explore a creative hobby in 2020. So whether you want to pick up an instrument, learn how to paint, do something that fuels your creative soul because human beings are meant to create.
I believe that every single person is a creative person. So you have to use what’s in you and it’s just fun. It will bring a lot more color and aspiration into your life
2 Design Your Ideal Habits
On how you want your lifestyle to look next year. So whether you want to start meditating every day journaling, drinking tea in the morning, whatever it is like make it a plan to slowly incorporate your new habits into your lifestyle one at a time, do it really slowly, and then build from there.
3 Break Your Bad Habits
You can also decide what habits you want to break next year. So make a list of your bad habits or habits that you really want to let go of. And then start one at a time.
tell a friend about this so that your friend can keep you accountable. And if you really want to see it through like make a consequence or some sort of punishment for not following through and make sure that friend holds you accountable for those consequences.
4 Read At Least 10 Pages A Day
Make it a commitment to read at least 10 pages a day. I find it easier to make a commitment based on the pages versus like the number of books that you want to read in the year because when you make the goal the number of books is feels big and daunting, but if you just tell yourself like a Okay, 10 pages a day, or even like five pages a day, usually you read your five or 10 pages, and then you want to read more.
So it’s all about building the consistent daily habits of reading, rather than focusing on like the end goal of how many books you’ve read.
5 Try Listening To Audio Books
Try listening to audio books. So this is something that I got really into this year. And I think it’s because I felt like it was easier to make time to listen to books while I was driving, rather than like reading actual books at home. So if you feel like you can’t make time to read every day, and you have like some sort of commutes, or you go jogging, or you can listen to something, why not listen to some books on the way because then you’re learning a lot while you’re doing something that you would have done anyway.
By the way, my favorite book to listen to is Kevin Hart’s audiobook. It’s like the funniest thing ever. I recommend it to everybody.
6 Try Something You Always Wanted
Ask yourself what is the experience that you’ve always wanted to try? Is it skydiving, surfing, taking a ballet class, whatever it is, make time as soon as you can. Do a quick Google search on how you can make that happen in 2020.
7 Take Control Of Your Finances
So, make a plan to save enough money in your bank that will cover your expenses for five months. So that’s like your safety net. And if you already have that amount of money saved, then start investing your money, you can check out this video right here or down below on how to start investing.
I’ve been using betterment for more than a year already. And I highly recommend it. So you got to make your money work for you once you have that extra cash because it’s smarter to put your money somewhere that will make it grow versus just leaving it in the bank where it won’t really do much for you.
8 Invest In Yourself In 2020
So I strongly believe in using our money to fuel our future. So instead of using your money to buy things just to consume, use your money to buy something that will help elevate yourself and your career. So whether you’re like a freelancer may be investing in better software, better equipment. Investing in furthering education, taking classes, spending your money in a way that invest in a better future for yourself.
9 Declutter Your Closets/Space In 2020
I find it so refreshing to declutter. So I always like to declutter whenever it’s the new year so that I can get rid of old things get rid of old energy to make room for the new.
10 Gather Up Some Old Things To Sell
you might as well gather up some old things to sell for extra cash, because, you know, they say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so why not?
11 Plan An Artist’s Date
Plan an artist’s date for yourself in 2020. An artist date is basically you taking yourself out on a solo date, doing something fun that fuels your creative soul. So it could be anything depending on what you’re interested in. So just ask yourself, wouldn’t it be fun if i dot dot dot, fill in the blank and then pick a date to make it happen and have a ball number two.
12 Write a love letter to yourself
Write a love letter to yourself. This is something that I recommend everyone do because it helps enhance and build self love. And I know it’s really awkward and it’s really weird at first, but just give it a try and see what happens.
13 Reconnect With An Old Friend
Reconnect with an old friend that you truly love and care about. I’m sure we’ve all experienced drifting away from someone that we love. And it’s not that you stopped caring about them. It’s just that your lives went in different directions. Wouldn’t it be nice to just send them like a little message just to say, Hi, I still care about you. How are you doing? I don’t know. I just it might spark up something nice.
14 Reach Out To Someone You Admire
Reach out to someone you admire and compliment them. So whether it’s someone close to you in your actual life, or someone you just follow on social media kind words can really go a long way. I’ve personally developed real friendships that started out as just complimenting each other on social media because I see someone doing something really cool. And then I tell them like, Oh my God, you’re so awesome. I love what you do. And then it turns into a real conversation and then it turns it To a real friendship over time, which is really cool.
15 Do Current Me Vs Future Me
Do the current me versus future me exercise for 2020 if you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s an exercise in my artists of Life Workbook where you draw your current self versus your future self. And I explained more in these videos, check them out and definitely do the exercise and tag me at lab and Derek is I’d love to see your drawings.
16 Redecorate Your Space
Redecorate and give your space a mini makeover so you can look to Pinterest for some home info, and just find new ways to shake things up and refresh your space.
17 Try Stream Of Consciousness
Try stream of consciousness journaling every day for an entire week. I highly recommend trying this. It’s my favorite way to journal because after you just like learn to flow from your thoughts to your paper and you do it consistently every day, you’re going to realize that you get clear on your goals and what you want. You get clear on how you should move forward with life. It’s just the best thing ever.
18 Go To Local Adventure
Go on an adventure in your hometown. Usually when we think of travel We think of going too far off places taking a plane or driving really far. You don’t have to go that far to see the place around you with new eyes. Find a way to be a tourist in your hometown for a day. Whether you go to places you’ve never gone before, try new restaurants. See things that you haven’t seen before. Like have fun and look at your hometown with fresh eyes.
Find time to volunteer in the new year. So get involved with a nonprofit that you believe in whether you’re volunteering for a local animal shelter, homeless shelter, anything just whatever like strikes a chord in your hearts, whatever you truly believe in and want to help support. Go do that because the world needs more helping cans.
Try yoga. If you haven’t tried yoga yet definitely make it a point to try it in 2020 Yoga has so many benefits. Doing it helps calm you down de stress, and it helps you obviously be more flexible, more strong and it really is a mind and body workout so you have a stronger mind, you’re more patient, you feel more balanced and grounded. It just has so many positive effects that there’s no reason not to do it. And if you already do yoga, make it a point to improve your practice next year, whether you want to do it more consistently, or hit some sort of goal, like be able to do a headstand. Yeah, why not?
21 Dress Up
Dress Up, ask yourself what would I wear if I did not care what anybody else thought of me and it could be dressing up. It could be dressing down, wear whatever makes you feel confidence, beautiful and powerful. For me. It means putting a little more effort into my outfits, and just wearing like new things, experimenting with different styles. Just whatever makes me feel good.
22 Dance More
Dance more. Even if you don’t dance or you hate it. Just try it by yourself in your room when no one’s looking because at the end of the day, you can still just laugh at yourself and it will be fun regardless. truly believe that dance is like joy expressed in our physical human form. So just dancing always boost your mood. It always makes you feel better, it makes you happier.
23 Wake Up Earlier
Wake up earlier than usual and have a slow mindful morning, sit in silence, have some tea, listen to nature feel the morning sun, slow mornings are so calm and beautiful. And they really make a positive impact on your day because how you start your day is how the rest of your day is going to be.
24 Learn A New Skill
Learn a new skill in 2020. So what is something that you’ve always wanted to learn or maybe a skill that you see in others that you really admire? Why not make this year the year that you learn that new skill so sign up for a course or look up tutorials online and get started.
25 Clean Eating Habits
Clean up your eating habits in 2020 so eat more fruits and vegetables. Try new healthy foods to see what you enjoy. And if you aren’t vegan already, try reducing your meat intake. Buy as much as you can, whether it’s a quarter, half or more, because it’s better for your Health is better for the environment and so much more.
I know a lot of people are very passionate about veganism and I love the movement. I love what it stands for. And I’ve read a lot into it. But I do believe that everybody is at a different point in their journey, a different part of the spectrum. So let’s respect everybody’s lifestyle and their beliefs. And just as long as you’re making progress. I hope you guys like these new year’s resolutions ideas.
