3 new year resolutions you need to keep this year

New Year resolutions are familiar to us all. Some of us make one, while some just wave it off as a fad that’s forgotten come February. 

January is the prime time to establish yearly objectives. It's fueled by the powerful psychological allure of starting “fresh.” This is the best time to set your goals and put habits in place.

But not all resolutions are created equal; the key lies in choosing the right ones. Here are the three crucial resolutions that can redefine your year and set you on a path to success.

3 important resolutions everyone needs to keep this year.

  • Health Is Wealth
  • One resolution that’s common among every list is something to do with health. It’s cliche, but crucial.

    Exercising and working on your diet will make you happier, healthier and fitter. It’ll improve your looks, help you get leaner, improve your skin and hair and give you more energy. 

    Don't overcomplicate it; start slow with just 2-3 days of moderate fitness per week, and build consistency. Over time, you can amp up the intensity and frequency, and incorporate specific diet plans. Starting in small steps ensures a sustainable and effective health journey.

  • Flex The Brain Muscle
  • Learning is a staple on everyone's lists, and there's a good reason for it. Much like exercising your heart and muscles, keeping your brain stimulated is crucial for peak performance.  It generates more cells and gray matter when exposed to new ideas and information. While this growth is natural during school and college, the workplace often sees a slowdown in learning, leading to a loss of sharpness. 

    This doesn't have to be complicated—playing brain-teasing games like Wordle or online chess, or tackling daily sudoku and crossword puzzles, provides the necessary challenges for your brain to grow and become sharper.

  • Have A Balance
  • New years are a time for self reflection and sometimes they bring up nothing but regret. We look back and see that we simply didn’t do enough with our time. We earned a lot of money, sure, but what good was it if we barely ever went out or saw our family?

    So for 2024, set some clear work life balance boundaries in your life. Define explicitly the times when you’re supposed to be working and when you’re supposed to be resting. The best way to do it is to set a clear partition in your day. All work goes above and after that certain time, you get to relax and have fun. 

    On the weekend, set a similar time-span or an entire day to do something you’re ACTUALLY interested in. At the end of the year, those are the things you’ll remember the most. 

    Making new year resolutions is easy but keeping them is hard. Once it gets tough, we highly encourage you to prioritize these 3 in your life before you focus on the rest. These 3 will come to define your year and we promise you won’t regret keeping them come December 2024.
