Now, as the New Year approaches, you can use all your learnings from the past to resolve to take a new direction. This can be a path to a healthier and happier you. Here are a few you can adopt.

Out with the old, in with the new

Instead of repeating the same old resolutions, resolve to make new ones you will actually keep. Rather than focus on temporary, short-term gains, define goals that you can actually achieve. Let the focus be your mental health and well-being. Rather than mere weight loss, resolve to live a more healthy and fulfilling life. Here’s how you can go about it.

  • Count your blessings

When things are not going according to plan. it’s easy to lose sight of what’s in front of you. Being positive and being grateful about what you have can also help you look at the bigger picture. Counting your blessings can help you develop a sense of gratitude for what you have, which can in turn help you relook and access your life with a more balanced view.

  • It’s okay not to do anything at times

Ensure you have a work-life balance, and take timeout to take a break. This is vital to give your body and mind some time to relax and unwind.

  • Express yourself

Bottling up your emotions will only take a toll on you physically and mentally. So, ensure you have someone in your life whom you can connect with when down or upset or when you simply want to vent.

  • Make time for yourself

While it’s great to take care of everyone’s needs, ensure you don’t neglect your own health. Take time out to do what you like and give yourself that much needed break minus any guilt.

  • Limit your screen time

Most of us have embraced technology to get work done and to stay connected with our loved ones. However, it’s equally important to spend some time offline pursuing other hobbies and interests. Don’t limit yourself to your screens, you also need to step out of your room once in a way to connect with the outside world, even if it means spending time walking on the terrace or in your building compound.

  • Ensure you get enough sleep

Many people have started compromising on their sleep to increase productivity. This actually hampers your mental and physical well-being in the long run. As it’s like working on reserve energy, which will drain out at some point, leaving you feeling fatigued, stressed and sleep deprived.

So, as 2021 approaches, consider these New Year’s Resolutions for a more healthier, happier you.
