6 Resolution Ideas For The New Year
Best Western

‘Tis the new year. Its the season of resolutions and hopes of a new year and new improvements. As we all try to change ourselves or our surroundings, there are some who still have no idea what they want to do-- some have already quit their resolutions, and are looking for new ones. So, here are some ideas for resolutions to help you better your new year.

1. Work out

This one may be very typical and it is the one most people quit. However, it is still a very good resolution. This one will help you become healthier and possibly attain that goal weight or size you’ve always wanted. But, I do recommend a lot of motivation and mind power for this one.

2. Travel

Unfortunately, this one costs money. But, there are several places you can travel for cheap. You could also travel places that are relatively close-- lots of times there are hidden gems in your own town.

3. Meet new people

This one is simple and allows for you to grow, make connections, and will also help you be happier. Putting yourself out there and meeting new people is always a good way to find hidden opportunities or find people who can better your life.

4. Cut out negativity

Whether it be cutting out the gossip or the negative people in your life, this will make you an overall happier person. This may also result in quitting that job you hate or breaking up with that person who brings you down. While this may suck, it will also make your life happier and stress-free.

5. Take a chance

Do something you’ve always wanted to do. This will allow you to finally cross it off your bucket list while experiencing something new that may change the way you see things.

6. Be true to yourself

This is possibly the simplest and the hardest one. It is sometimes difficult to put yourself first and fully be yourself around everyone. But, it can also be simple because no one can be you better than you-- it costs no money and will allow you to not hold back on the little things.

You may have tried these, or maybe none of them are for you. But to those of you who this article helped inspire, I truly hope you make this new year the best year yet. Nothing can happen without hard work and motivation. Anything can happen, but it is up to you. So, wake up every day and tell yourself “this is going to be a great day.” New year, new you.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
