Why not make this a reality by setting achievable, healthy New Year resolutions? A lot of the time, the simplest of changes can make the biggest difference. You can make a massive change in your quality of life by considering allergy and intolerance testing, regulating your sleep schedule, or taking a fresh look at housecleaning. Make 2024 your year by learning how to thrive in all the best ways!
What does thriving look like?
Realistically speaking, most people will take a different approach to thriving. At its most basic, thriving means to flourish or prosper. It means seeing your life at its most successful and feeling at your best.
As far as what it can look like for you, it depends on what your life goal is. Do you want to go after better fitness? Is diet your main concern? Do you have issues with your mental health? Whether one or all of these sounds right, being at your strongest self means choosing how you want to go about it. Below are some tips to help you step into a bright and vibrant future through your resolutions.
Achievable and impactful healthy New Year resolutions
The whole goal of this is to get you thinking about health on your terms. We’ve compiled a list of things that can help you do just that from a faceted point of view. If you aren’t sure where to begin, we recommend doing so at the very beginning and working your way down from there!
Make a positivity-focused journal
One of the simplest options is to achieve mental health goals by starting a journal focused on positivity. This could be a gratitude journal, a list journal, a guided journal, or anything else that makes you feel positive. You can make this daily, weekly, monthly, or whatever interval suits you best.
Aim for a better work/life balance
Another great choice is prioritizing a better work/life balance. This is a crucial detail about our lives that many of us don’t focus on enough. You can do this by turning off work phones after hours, limiting how many hours you work weekly, or even changing jobs. However you chase this, it’s a great priority.
Spend less time online
We are all guilty of spending hours doomscrolling online. If you work online, that adds to it. One excellent resolution for your health is to focus more on the external, offline world as much as possible by limiting your online time. While there is nothing wrong with spending time on social media and the online world, keep it in check. You might be surprised how much of a difference it makes to your mood!
Create a realistic financial goal
Most of us want to achieve financial health by reaching specific goals related to our finances. To see real progress, why not create a financial goal within reach? It might be lower than your “ultimate” goal, but it can still help you enjoy a wonderful sense of success, just as realistic and valid as your big endgame goal.
Explore one new recipe per week
Having a food-based resolution is simple, and it’s a great option! But why not make it more interesting by expanding your food-related horizons by trying one new recipe per week? This is a pace that you’ll be able to keep up throughout the year, and it means that you’ll have tried 52 new recipes at the end of 2024! Just remember to get allergy and intolerance testing first so that you know what ingredients to avoid in your new food adventure!
Take a fresh look at your goals
Over time, our goals change. If it’s been a while since you’ve assessed your goals, try taking some time at the beginning of the year to do that! You can put fresh eyes on your goals and then use that experience to see if your goals and dreams still serve you. This can help remind you of ones you are no longer interested in or even goals you have already achieved!
Resolutions make you your best self
This list has been pretty varied, right? That’s because each of us is unique and special, too. It only makes sense that our approach to healthy New Year resolutions is, too. Whether you’ve decided that your starting point is allergy and intolerance testing, gratitude, or a digital detox, all these starting points are the launchpad into a new and growth-filled year. All you have to do is pick your favorite from this list and go from there.
Being your best, most vibrant, happiest self starts with good health. It also includes a dedicated approach to figuring out how you want to achieve that goal. This blueprint will help you see the different plot points so that your healthy New Year resolutions have a logical, actionable, and — most importantly — achievable outline. The rest is what you make of it!
Now that you know how to create a successful future, take a moment to see how many forms it can take. Success, health, and happiness are right around the corner and will be a lot better than you might expect. It’s time to take the first step. Are you ready?
