For many, resolutions go hand in hand with ringing in the New Year. Whether it’s pursuing triumphs or kicking bad habits—or a little of both—there are goals galore as the New Year begins. However, keeping your goals grounded can lead to more realistic results. Going overboard with your resolutions can cause more harm than good. Here are 10 (realistic) New Year’s resolutions for 2020.
Opt for the stairs.
Some type of fitness usually finds itself in the fold of New Year’s goals. Choosing the stairs, over the elevator or escalator, can give you a boost in energy—and be a boon to the rest of your New Year’s resolutions for 2020. In fact, running up the stairs for 10 minutes gives you more energy than a shot of soda or espresso!
Eat more vegetables.
Continuing on with healthy goals, spicing up your diet with more veggies can help you lose weight and clean up your digestive tract. Plus, there are tons of veggie recipes that are yummy for the tummy—which can also trim up the waistline.
Try out more hobbies.
Add new things to the mix in 2020. Finding a hobby you enjoy allows you to explore new likes and try out new experiences. It can also help you fight off boredom, a recipe for a more fulfilled life!
Go to lunch.
Nowadays, people tend to skip lunch or inhale their meal at the office. Take back your midday break. Head out for a salad. Stay in the office with some soup. Enjoy your food. Savor it. Have a few minutes to yourself. It’s been proven you’ll be more productive if you do.
Add variety to your workouts.
Mixing it up in the gym can have quite a few benefits, even slowing down the aging process. Go for a run, rock climb, test out the dumbbells, do yoga—there are plenty of things to try out and have fun with!
Scrap the screens from time to time.
From TV to smart phones, we’re constantly glued to screens. Break that trend of being hooked online by visiting with friends, socializing at the supermarket, or taking your furry friend for a walk.
Learn something new.
Teaching yourself something new can be one of the most rewarding New Year’s resolutions for 2020. Enroll in a cooking class or read up on a new language you’d like to learn. Even if you’ve been out of school for a while, it’s always fun to pick up a new skill or two.
Treat yourself more.
Treating yourself better can help shed off stress like no other. Relax with a hot bath a couple of hours before bed. It’s been linked to improved sleep–and sleep that goes uninterrupted through the night.
Keep yourself hydrated.
Water. It does more than you know. From healthier skin to improved mood, downing more water will do your body good!
Take a vacation.
You need some breaks in life. Taking a vacation will not only destress you once there: Excitement for the upcoming trip can boost your mood levels weeks in advance!
2020 will soon be here—and we hope it treats you well. Whatever your personal goals may be, we hope you’ll reach them.
