Remember we all had some resolutions in 2017 thinking that we are going to fulfill all of them. Well, the year is coming to an end and 2018 is soon to follow. So, before you make another list of resolutions while promising yourself that ‘I’ll definitely fulfill this next year’ read below and see which resolution/s of yours you only made to break in 2017!
1. Start Exercising!
You promise to get fit and start exercising. You are so motivated that you end up getting an expensive gym membership and even end up buying a nice pair of workout shoes! You even go to the gym for a couple of weeks. But, all this comes to a sudden halt when you realise that gym membership is burning a hole in your pocket and you decide that an early morning 5km run will keep you in shape but…only if you had managed to get outta that bed of yours!
2. Eating Healthy
Eat green, eat clean, becomes your motto when it comes to making healthy food choices. You ditch those “oily-paranthas” and eat “healthy oats” for breakfast and start drinking fresh juices instead of soft drinks. But, then there is that one day where Domino’s is offering a crazy discount on that yummy cheese burst pizza and that too with a free coke. So, you decide having junk once or twice a week won’t do any harm and soon you are back to your old eating habits.
3. Learning New Skills!
You promise to learn new skills like cooking, driving, designing, photography, etc and take up new hobbies like reading because smart people read books and you buy a couple of books. You open one, read a couple of chapters, and then promise to go back to it…the truth is, you usually never go back.
4. Ditching Social Media
You realised that you are addicted to social networking websites and end up wasting a great deal of your time over there and decide it’s wise to quit them all. You did try this one for less than a day and failed, because how are you going to see all the pictures of your crush’s images of celebrating New Year on Instagram if you aren’t using Instagram? And how will everyone know your opinion if you can’t Tweet about it?
5. Sleeping Early
You decide to not stay up late and got to bed early. You promise to watch lesser movies and don’t binge watch tv-series back to back. But, Netflix is your life and you end up falling asleep early in the morning!
6. Stop Procrastinating
Everybody is well aware of the fact that procrastination is the root cause of all the problems, but who wants to start another task right after they finished one? We all need a break, which is great until that break continues to the day before that assignment is due.
7. Quit Smoking!
You know smoking is injurious to health and can even cause cancer. But, a rough day at work and you find yourself lighting up a stick while reminding yourself that you have to quit it but soon realise that maybe slowly like in a year or two.
New Year’s resolutions are commitments we make with enthusiasm and are soon forgotten about. 2017 sucked, we all know it. So, to make 2018 better, hold yourself accountable for these resolutions and make sure you achieve them!
