If there’s one thing the previous year has taught us, it’s probably living in the moment and making the most out of our lives. As 2020 caused us to be locked up inside our homes for months long, it’s normal to miss the things we used to enjoy doing before all the catastrophic events happened. Those times allowed us to reflect and look back at how we lived our lives when things were still “normal.”
This 2021, as we gear up to a year full of hope, it’s time to lay down new goals to help set our pace and live our lives better this year of the Metal Ox.
According to a study, less than eight percent of people stick to their resolutions every year. This might be because the list is too long and unrealistic. Let’s try to keep it simple and easily-achievable this time! Here are a few new year’s resolutions you can effortlessly maintain this 2021.
Get into fitness
The first step to overall wellness is being fit and healthy. If you’re one of those people who don’t enjoy harsh workout routines, you can opt for yoga, dancing, or even meditation to help calm and compose your nerves. Try to sneak in a 10 to 15-minute workout routine into your weekly schedule at least three to four times until you get used to it. This way, you can easily maintain a habit of moving your muscles and recomposing yourself every once in a while.
Spend more time with family
Now that we’re advised to stay at home as much as possible, and some are working remotely, this resolution should be easily attainable and maintained. If you haven’t had the chance to spend time with your family in previous years because you’re too caught up in work and weekday traffic, now’s the time to make up to them! Cook for your kids, prepare food for your mom and dad or join them during mealtime.
Learn a new hobby or life skills
This is one of the most used resolutions every year, but it doesn’t take away the fact that many of us want to learn something new in a span of 12 months. Start trying out things you haven’t tried before, like learning how to play an instrument, journaling, reading new books, growing indoor plants, stitching, painting, cooking, baking, and so much more! It’s one way to keep your mind preoccupied when you’re stressed or need a break.
Drink more water
So simple, yet many fail to keep this resolution every year. Start small by replacing 1-2 drinks a day with water. If you’re someone who lives by caffeine and soda, you should start incorporating water into your diet more often until you get used to it. Maybe replace your second cup of coffee with a glass of water, or if you are not used to the bland taste, try to put fresh lime or lemon, fruit, or cucumber in your drink.
Allot a portion of your money to savings, and you’ll be surprised at how much you’ve saved at the end of the year. No matter the amount, it’s essential to make it a habit every month or every payday to keep something for future use.
Invest in stocks and shares or real estate
Besides saving money, another way to secure your hard-earned money is by investing in stocks or real estate. When it comes to investing, the first step is identifying your goal, whether it’s short or long-term. For instance, if you want to invest in something that will help you take on your dream vacation after a few years or a down-payment for another investment in a few months, or if you want to take it to another level and consider investing for long-term causes like buying your own house or car.
Investing in shares means buying and keeping them for some time to make money. You earn money when the company you invested in grows and becomes more valuable, hence adding value to your share, which means your investment is worth more, too.
On the other hand, investing in real estate is another way to up your investment game this year. With well-chosen assets, investors can enjoy predictable cash returns and flow, tax advantages, and leverage in real estate to build wealth.
Investors earn money through rental income, appreciation, and profits generated by business activities that depend on the property.
