The infamous time for resolutions is upon us, and whether you have already made some during the apex of New Year's Eve, it surely won't hurt to add some to your list of changes - the more the merrier right? As in, the more you have, the higher the chance you have of at least fulfilling one resolution.
So let's step out of our comfort zone and start with something many of us struggle with: waking up in the morning. Trying to become a morning person and becoming one overall leads to not only a more productive lifestyle but also a healthier one. The hours spent cramming in to finish soon-to-be-due work will become blissful hours of sleep and groggy half-wasted days will no longer exist. However, besides rising with the sun, it can also help to consider replacing your hours spent looking at the glare of a device with hours spent basking in activities bathed in natural sunlight. Yes, I'm telling you to try to spend less time on your phone and social media. The device not only hinders your productivity, but also creates an insatiable materialistic hunger within you. Time spent comparing your life to others and desiring theirs, could become time spent in attaining a life reflecting the wants you only yearned for.
Another thing to try out for this new year is getting lost. No joke intended - get lost. You might be surprised to see where the less traveled path takes you. Take wayward routes, explore less photographed and reviewed sites - go where the crowd is thinner. There is little to lose by going out of the way sometimes. At the same time, try being more spontaneous. Do things you normally wouldn't do, and if that means just talking to someone who doesn't share the same interests as you, then do it! Branch out. Discover more of yourself by taking on things out of your comfort zone, because you never know, skydiving may become your newest hobby.
Or you may just confirm it as one of your worst expirée des in your whole entire life. You at least tried though, right? A life with every possibility and fear explored is a life lived, in my opinion.
However, I'm not saying to Google the nearest skydiving attraction. I'm not even saying to go do something huge. The coming of a new year doesn't necessarily mean to change a major part of who you are. Sometimes, you can simply get by with trying new things and venturing on a spontaneous adventure. And at the end of the day, the little things build up to create something wonderful. So go out today, celebrate you, discover you, and have a happy new year
