A common practice found amongst nearly all of us during the holiday season is creating New Year’s resolutions. These resolutions can verge from abstract, to very specific, or from serious, to lighthearted. One trend that ties most of us together is the failure to fulfill them. While it can be great to have a distinct, brave goal for the oncoming year, it can also be unrealistic, or even impossible. If you’re struggling to find your New Year’s resolution for 2017, here are some that cater to nearly all of us.
Unrealistic resolution: Work out every day
Realistic resolution: Laugh more
Not only is laughing great for your mental health and overall spirits, but it also burns calories! If the feeling of near-death and overwhelming physical exhaustion doesn’t appeal to you, just find reasons to laugh at the world and you’ll be able to get fit in no time.
Unrealistic resolution: Obtain the hottest commodities
Realistic resolution: Buy knock-off brands of items that you desire
Wealth is reflected on appearance, so why break the bank to achieve a nice style? You’ll be saving money while retaining that fresh aesthetic.
Unrealistic resolution: Stress less
Realistic resolution: Treat yo self more
It’s not humanly possible to de-stress by simply telling yourself to not get stressed. Instead of trying to be more carefree, or kicking stress to the curb, spend some more time catering to your own wants and needs on a daily basis, and you’ll create a healthy equilibrium.
