You must be wondering two things right now. Firstly, the New Year resolutions topic is super clichéd. Second, we are already half month down and now I am coming up with this topic. It’s because I wanted the entire resolutions things to fade away a little so that you could focus on this, differently.
Here, I am not going to talk about making resolutions to save or lose weight or even take up a different course, but I am going to talk about some realistic resolutions as I am also NOT a resolution person like most of you.
1. DO NOT OBSESS ABOUT GETTING THE PERFECT BODY
You know, most of us are like this. More than staying healthy, we obsess on a flat stomach kind of body. I urge you to stay healthy and achieve the body that you want but do not obsess over it. Flatter yourself in all of your body structures.
2. DO NOT LOSE IN LIFE WHILE BEING AMBITIOUS
Being ambitious is the best thing in the world. But, we somehow keep our lives comparing with others. In the process of being over competitive, we are losing on the precious little moments of life. Get over this to move forward focus on yourself and not others.
3. DO NOT STICK TO A PLACE
Well, if you want to reach somewhere, you have to go there. You need to come out of your comfort zone and explore the world. Do you think Priyanka Chopra would be where she is if she was just stuck in her zone? No! So, get up, get going and never stick to a place.
4. DO NOT BE DEPENDENT ON ANYONE ELSE
No matter how much we say we are independent, for various things we are dependent on various people. But, stop doing that. No friends accompanying you for Goa’s trip? Try out a solo trip then.
5. DO NOT THINK TWICE TO SPOIL YOURSELF
By spoiling yourself, I mean doing anything that makes you happy. If taking an exotic staycation at the resort makes you happy, do that. If shopping something grand makes you feel spoilt, do that. Do everything that you can to make yourself happy.
6. DO NOT COMPARE YOUR LIFE WITH OTHERS
Now, this is the most important realistic resolutions we all need to make. Comparing our lives with our friends, colleagues, influencers or even that ‘Sharma Ji Ka Ladka’ are not going to take you anywhere. This is baseless so try to move your thoughts to a better place.
7. DO NOT MINGLE WITH THE CROWD
Just because something is trending or because everyone is doing does not mean that you also have to do the same. If you feel claustrophobic while walking with the crowd, just quit it. Take your own way and follow it full heartedly, things will automatically fall into place.
8. DO NOT COPY SOMEONE’S PERSONALITY
Your boyfriend may like hilly vacations and you may not. So say it out loud. Do not show others that you also like mountains. This was just an example and I hope you know what I mean.
9. DO NOT SETTLE FOR LESS
It is very important for every person to know his or her worth. If you know you deserve more then never settle for less, no matter whatever it is. As they say, keep your heads and heels high.
10. DO NOT STRESS ABOUT FUTURE
Planning for future is always great but do not miss out on the beauty of the present. Carpe diem! This should be your ultimate and one of the major realistic resolutions for 2018 and even beyond.
For me, a resolution is too old school and I actually do not believe in the entire theory. Instead, these realistic resolutions are way better because that makes for a better version of me.
