When the new year starts, resolutions are made, people aspire to make differences and changes in their lives. Often, the goal is to better oneself through a healthier lifestyle or saving more money. But there are New Years resolutions that can help inspire good deeds. These resolutions will not only better you personally but better the community around you. In turn, a better world could come from the simple New Years resolutions we make this year.
Make a decision to choose the best New Years resolutions this year so that you can make a difference in your community and in the world.
Make a resolution to get involved with a good cause, a charitable organization or even a local fundraising event.
Read a book instead of watching television. You may learn something new and then, when you’ve finished reading your book you can donate it to the local library.
Another resolution you can make is to keep up with local or global news. This will help you know when help is needed both locally and globally.
Be more productive at your desk. This will help free up time for you to get out and volunteer when you see fit.
If you make a resolution to create a financial plan you can better see where you can afford to donate money and where you can save.
There is nothing wrong with making new hobbies that will do good as long as you enjoy doing them.
Make sure you make a resolution to treat yourself monthly, weekly, or daily pickup.
Make an inspiring playlist to listen to when you’re feeling down throughout the year. You can add to it, remove from it, but always use it to inspire good in yourself.
Clean out your closet, donate what you don’t want or need anymore and make space in your life for new things.
Start new traditions this year, maybe you can throw in a tradition to volunteer somewhere.
Cleanse yourself of social media, limit your digital time and spend more time in reality with family, friends, and your community.
Set some new long-term goals. These goals are ones that take a lot more work to reach but when you get there, you will be proud. You can make one of them to go on a good deed trip.
Smile, more, it’s ok to smile and if you share your smile with someone new everyday you may make new friends or pass it on.
Let your New Years resolutions take you somewhere new once a week this year. Doesn’t matter where you go, so long as you aren’t sitting at home doing nothing.
You’re an amazing cook, make one of your New Years resolutions to share your cooking skills with a friend or neighbor when they’re sick or stuck at home.
Give something away this year, unprovoked and maybe even unasked for, but give something. Even if the thing you give away is something you want for yourself.
Some good deeds are needed within the family. Make a resolution to visit family, even if they’re further away.
Make a resolution to teach children in your life to have gratitude and to lead by example.
Don’t argue as much this year, make your New Years resolutions to be less argumentative. There is nothing wrong with having your own opinions but maybe listen more to other people’s opinions more often.
Everyone makes mistakes, don’t beat yourself up over mistakes you make. Instead, learn from them and use the lessons you’ve learned to pass on to others in a positive way.
Write! Emails are very professional and texting feels less human, instead, write a letter and mail it. Maybe you can write to a charity organization saying thank you.
