How to Make Your Own New Years Resolutions

If you’re feeling like you’ve just been handed a blank cheque and can’t seem to find a way to make your life better, here are six simple ways to take control of your day.


Make a list.

As much as we all wish it could be more like that, there’s a point in every day where you have to make a list of what you’re going to do to make yourself feel better.

The list can be a simple list of the things you’re thankful for or it can be as long as it is.

This can be anything from reading an inspirational poem, making your own wishlist or doing something you’ve been thinking about.

Just make sure you take time to think about it and not just do something when you’re tired.


Be grateful.

Every time you feel anxious, depressed or feel like you’re failing at something, just remember that this is a chance for you to learn from your mistakes and make them better.

If you can just do one thing each day to be grateful, it’ll feel good.


Learn from your past mistakes.

When we’re working to achieve something, we have to learn how to do it the right way.

We learn by doing and not by reading about it.

It’s important to remember that you never know how your actions will affect others.

When you’re working towards a goal, be sure to practice being mindful of how you behave.


Don’t make excuses.

Sometimes it’s easy to put off making positive changes because you think that doing so will make you feel better or make you look better.

Sometimes that’s not the case.

Remember that you’ll never know what you can do until you try it yourself.


Practice being present.

If something is frustrating, don’t give up and just get to work.

This will help you to be present when you need to be, instead of thinking about things you can’t change.


DonĂ­t put yourself in a position where you need the help of others.

Many people are afraid to ask for help, and this can be one of the most frustrating feelings in life.

Be willing to do whatever it takes to make sure your life is more peaceful and happy.

It’ll be a lot easier to learn when you don’t have to think, and it can feel good to have someone helping you.
