Think Small and Make Big Changes In 2022
When was the last time you made New Year’s resolutions that actually made a difference in you and your loved ones’ lives?
We’ve all had lofty ambitions to lose weight, learn a new skill or go for that promotion. But what happens when we don’t achieve those things? We feel deflated and disheartened.
For 2022, why not set more achievable goals with results that you can really see? It’s all about thinking small to make some big changes in your life, so read on for our New Year resolutions ideas to make 2022 the best year yet!
Being kind is one of those simple things that costs you nothing and will reward you with that warm feeling of knowing you’ve made someone’s day. But you don’t have to make grand gestures to raise a smile. It could be something as simple as:
- Letting someone go ahead of you in the queue at the supermarket
- Sending someone a present “just because”
- Donating items to a food bank
- Telling someone what you love about them
- Offering to help a neighbour out with childminding, pet walking or errands
Make being kind a part of your everyday routine and you’ll soon notice the different to your own mood and wellbeing… let’s face it, there’s no better feeling than spreading happiness!
Connecting with friends, colleagues and family has been more important than ever this year since we’ve had to adjust to new ways of living and working.
Keep those connections going into 2022 with regular video calls to catch up with your loved ones, wherever they may be.
There are lots of other ways to stay in touch. For birthdays or other celebrations, send personalised gifts with a special message that show how much you care. Send a handwritten letter in the post. Or tag your loved ones on social media with a picture of you sharing good times together.
Get out of your comfort zone
Set yourself a goal to do one thing a month out of your comfort zone. It doesn’t have to be wildly ambitious. This resolution is more about changing up your usual routine. So you could:
- Walk a new route to work
- Try a new recipe
- Be a tourist in your own city or area and visit all those sites you’ve never been
- Learn ten phrases in a new language
- Watch a movie you haven’t seen before… why not choose one from the year you were born?
By the end of the year, you’ll have acquired a new set of skills or experiences without having to try too hard!
