Everyone always talks about their new year's resolutions that typically never follow through. People always make the same resolutions that they always give up on, and the idea never enters into their mind again. Sometimes people make resolutions that are more like short-term goals, and they do not overcome any obstacles to achieve this goal. This year, create your new year's resolutions, but put some thought into it. Be creative with your goals. Here are some out-of-the-box ideas for your new year's resolutions.
1. Pursue a New Art
I am not necessarily talking about your general fine arts like singing, painting, or acting, although you may want to pursue these. Try an art that isn't so common. For instance, I am trying to learn calligraphy because I am so fascinated with it. You could try knitting, or maybe pottery. Take a class that is a bit out of your comfort zone. You may end up loving it!
2. Learn Sign Language
Does anyone ever think of how cool that would be? I would love to know sign language! I am a very fidgety person, so sign language would be enjoyable to me. People always suggest learning a new language, but they rarely suggest sign language. You never know when you will need it!
3. Or Learn Another Language
You will definitely not be fluent in a year, but you could begin a new language this year and continue to pursue it in the future. By the end of the year, you can know how to carry a basic conversation in your new language! I have always wanted to learn Italian or German!
4. Learn to Play a New Instrument
This is another goal that will take longer than a year. Even so, you can make a lot of progress in a year! This takes time and dedication and it is beyond worth it in the end.
5. Do Something Nice for Others Every Day
Seek out nice gestures and try to do something nice each day. If you keep up with it, then you will notice that you have become a happier person.
6. Volunteer Somewhere
Help out somewhere or do something good for your community. I can guarantee you that your community really needs it. There are always places that are in need. Get involved!
