Year 2015 is here and you have probably already prepared your list of New Year resolutions.
Want to kick old habits, start new routines, and live life the way you really want to live? All that you need is the determination to pursue your goals. Here are 10 resolutions to make you happier in 2015.
- Enjoy the little joys in life
Most of us are too busy that we can’t even enjoy a proper meal or spend a few minutes with our loved ones. Unfortunately, by trying to achieve more in less time, we forget to enjoy the little joys that make our lives worth living. Make sure to enjoy the little things in life to stay happy. Talk a bit with your friends and family, and take joy in their achievements.
- Be true to yourself
Are you pursuing your passion? Do you enjoy your job? Are you happy in your relationship? Don’t lie to yourself. Acceptance is the first step towards mending something. If you’re not happy with something, try to find the reason and start fixing it. If your relationship isn’t working out, find out what your significant other wants. Maybe a little care from you is all they want. A little step can help the coming year become a better one.
- Don’t waste your time
Time is the most precious thing you have. It’s more important than money, so p1ut a premium on it. Don’t waste your time on trivial things and people. Know what you want and how you should spend your time. However, utilizing time doesn’t mean it has to have a monetary value. If you enjoyed an hour of playing games, it’s an hour well spent!
- Take a risk
Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to take challenges. Yes, you will make some mistakes and fail, but the knowledge that you gain from these experiences will make you a better person who is capable of achieving more. If you don’t take a risk, you’ll never achieve your dream.
- Hang out with the right people
Are you hanging out with people who really care for you? Do they have your interest at heart? Friends in need are friends indeed. If you think the people you’re hanging out with aren’t really your friends, it’s best to start looking for new company. Maybe you can’t make the transition in one go. Divide your time between your old friends and new friends and see if it’s helping you.
- Let bygones be bygones
You can’t change the past and you can’t do anything about it. You may have made mistakes. You may have wasted opportunities. But there is no point in worrying about them. You can’t undo the past, so forget about it and focus on the present and the future. There are many people who spend time regretting what they did. It’s best to leave things that you can’t undo and just take a lesson from them.
- Help people who need it
Lend a helping hand and a listening ear to whoever that needs it. Your good karma will eventually come to your rescue. Always remember, help and good deeds never go unnoticed. Even if nobody knows that you’ve done a good thing, the universe knows it, and will reward you.
- Stop making excuses
If there is something that you want to do, do it at any cost. Stop making excuses and remember that you will be able to achieve whatever you want if your determination is strong. So get up and do what you need to do. Also, remember that time is very precious – don’t waste it!
- Be happy for others
You will not gain anything by being jealous. So, be happy for others. This is particularly important if you want them to rejoice in your happiness. You might feel a little pang of jealousy when you know about someone’s achievements, but tell yourself that it’s good that they’re doing so well in their lives. Slowly, you’ll find the jealousy going away.
10. Give what you would like to get
If you are seeking love, give love. Treat others the way you would like them to treat you. This is the law of the universe – you get what you give. And remember, love is the most important force in the universe. Love others and they’ll love you back.
