9 Realistic Resolutions You Can Make For 2015
A very happy new year everyone. 2015 has just begun, time for celebrations, parties and need not to mention about resolutions. I am sure the word ‘resolution’ has come to your mind at least once since 12AM. What have you planned for this year? Now don’t say you don’t want to make one as you are afraid to keep it working. It’s ok, it’s never bad to try something that can make your life better.
Here are 9 realistic resolutions you can make for this year.
A famous French author François de La Rochefoucauld said, “To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” I know this is not something you would want to hear at the very first thought of a resolution, but you also know how important it is. I think this is something we give up on very easily, why not start this new year with a resolution and promise to not break the resolution at least this time.
Maintain a journey or you can download applications like Calorie Counter- MyFitnessPal, Noom.

Exercise for a better you
Did you know, exercise has a lot more to do than just offer you a better body? It affects your health, mind, mood and attitude and all in a positive way. What better could you ask for a routine of half an hour every day? It is going to be tough for the first few days, but that’s how every good thing happens. Most of the times it’s ok to sacrifice momentary pain for a permanent pleasure
So…. Pull your old pair of socks and shoes, push yourself and workout on a better you because it’s only when you burn it you earn it :).
Well I do agree that getting up everyday and going to the gym to work out is not the most inspiring thing to do but here are 10 Simple Tips To Motivate Your Gymmin Everyday
Start a new hobby
Something you can gift yourself this new year with a guaranteed return of happiness. Start something new. Join a music class or how about dance? Why not try your hands on art? Or why not do gardening? Try your hands on writing or try your hands on cooking.. Try this, try that….Start something fresh, something you never heard about or something you never knew. Explore yourself, you will feel great and will be so glad to have started a new hobby.
Read ‘n’ number of books
Set a target, set your ‘n’ or even go beyond it, you will expand. Books are the incredible source of information. If you don’t have a practice of reading books, make now. Read at least 1 book every month, read all kinds, you will enjoy it. Books help you expand yourself and opens upon to a new world which you want to live in.

Do something you are uncomfortable with
This is something you have to try this year. Enough of rationalizing about the uncomfortable things you don’t want to do. Face it, do it and you will not have to deal with the uncomfortableness the next time.
“Comfort Zone is sure a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.” Deal with the uncomfortable conversations, relationships or even uncomfortable acts. Just do it. Save yourself from the nagging thoughts and disturbing dilemma. It sure is a tough thing, to battle against your mind to shut all the excuses you have been giving yourself, but then if you don’t do this then you are probably missing out many wonderful things.
Do one thing for someone else every day.
I know this is something you do. But every day? I am not quite sure of this. Neither I do it every day, but I want to do it more often and yes this is one resolution which is at the top of my list.
I wondered….How do I do it? Does it require much of an effort? Or maybe not… If only most us know how a smile can affect someone else. How talking nice to someone can make them feel better. How calling up an old friend will solve the ego issues. How helping your loved ones with the smallest help can bring a change. Oh… There are plenty things to do. You just need to start with a couple of things and you will discover a heap more to do.
“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting some on yourself.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Talk to someone whom you are afraid of.
Fill up the courage and get set to talk to someone whom you are afraid of. Maybe someone from the family or friends. Just one talk can work wonders with your relationship and sometimes that is the one thing which keeps you away from what you desired for. Talk your heart out. It’s ok if the other person doesn’t respond in a desired way, at least you will be happy to know you did something about it. And most of the times it only matters about what you did for what you wanted.
It’s always better to live without a guilt of “What if…….?” in life.
Make a note of happy moments every day.
I have a practice. Whenever I come across special moments in my life or whenever I am happy with small reasons or sometimes with no reasons at all, I write it in a piece of paper and put it in the happiness jar. And on the days when I feel all the doors of happiness are shut, I open my happiness jar and I pull out a random paper filled with memories to bring back my happiness.
You can maintain a journal. You can highlight the moments of happiness in a day. And the days when you feel that the day wasn’t worth much of a thing, you will be surprised to discover a little something which made you happy, this will ensure you that the day was well spent and you have something to rejoice about.
This practice will help you to appreciate very small things in life and yes all these small things wrap up to make a big cheerful you 🙂
