New year, new me. How many times have you already said that to yourself? Maybe each new year, but something distracts you from building that new character and personality. What is it? Right, old habits and views. You know that it is hard to start doing something, and the reason is that the human brain is reluctant when it comes to learning. If it were up to it, Neanderthals would be lying on their stone couches in pajamas (the same way you lie sometimes). Hence, to progress in your life and set the foundation for a good year, grab your thoughts in your hands and do these 3 new things.
1. Try Something Accessible
How many times have you passed by that interesting coffee shop you wanted to enter? Many. Have you thought of visiting the ice skating rink nearby? Yes, you have. And how many times have you dreamed of participating in a master class related to your hobby? You certainly dreamed of that at least once a week. These examples show you that new things are at arm’s length. However, you haven’t tried all of these new activities due to work obligations and promises to family, friends, neighbors, and relatives’ cats. This year, remember to prioritize yourself, and your wants to make those new things come to your life.
2. Try New Format Of Gatherings
COVID-19 had people live at home for more than a year, affecting their relationships. Think about how you can rekindle relationships with your friends or family members or anyone you have been missing. There are several things you can do in this regard. For example, you can think of a gathering under your roof. It should not necessarily be a gathering where not everyone knows each other. There can be your friends from different job sites or relatives that have not seen each other for a long time. Gather your favorite people and create exciting memories with them. Play games, sing karaoke, cook and clean together, and most importantly, take many photos. Finally, make a board for them to look at all those cheerful people every day you wake up. The more positive your everyday attitude is, the better your day will evolve.
3. Try New Recipes And Foods
Have a look at your everyday diet. Has it changed a lot during the previous year? Have you tried good-looking festive dishes or healthy and easy-made recipes? If you haven’t, you know what to do. If you have, what about making it a habit at New Year’s? First, you can search what traditional dishes different nations eat at New Year. For instance, in Central Asia, people used to eat dishes from meat that they had long preserved (mutton meat in oil). Second, you can try a lovely dish that contains things you don’t like that much. Who knows, maybe sauces and design can turn your “No, I don’t like beans” into “Give me more.” Finally, if you are into healthy canna consumption, you can try pantry cannabis cookies and jellies. The bottom line is that the new year should start with new impressions that may lead to enjoyable habits and hobbies.
