As we bid goodbye to the year that was and welcome the new year, a lot of people have been listing down some of the things that they want to change and improve in their lives.
Given this year’s negative vibes caused by the pandemic, most folks drew up their New Year’s resolutions based on what happened to them this year. Here are the top eight most common resolutions people are listing down for the year 2021:
Resolution #1: Exercise to get fitter and healthier
Because of the pandemic, plenty of folks became really concerned about their physical health and fitness. People are declaring that in 2021 they will live a more active lifestyle to take better care of their health.
Resolution #2: Lose weight
Since a lot of people have become more health-conscious, they started to see how important it is to take good care of your body and not let themselves go overweight. Whether they exercise or regulate their eating habits, more people are willing to commit to a lifestyle change that will help them maintain the ideal weight for their height and age.
Resolution #3: Save more money
The pandemic caught all of us off-guard. A lot of us weren’t prepared for the financial ramifications that it had. Because of the economic crisis, people learned the importance of having emergency funds and savings. This lesson hit a lot of people hard and made them want to change things for the better in 2021.
Resolution #4: Eat healthily
They say that the road to fitness starts in the kitchen. Exercise and an active lifestyle can help keep you fit but fit are not exactly synonymous with healthy. For this reason, people have started to be mindful of what they eat and plan to continue eating healthily in the coming year.
Resolution #5: Do better at work and pursue a career ambition
The pandemic hit trade and industry hard. Businesses and companies closed left and right. This taught people to value the jobs they had. Now that the economy has reopened and is slowly regaining its footing, folks are more committed to working harder and aiming to accomplish their career goals in 2021.
Resolution #6: Spend more time with the family
A lot of us dreaded the fact that we will be stuck at home for quite some time when lockdowns were put in place. But a lot of people also realized what they were missing when they were preoccupied with work. Now that they got to spend a lot of time with their families, they intend to keep family time one of their top priorities in the new year.
Resolution #7: Engage in a new hobby
One of the good things that hobbies bring to our lives is it makes us temporarily forget our stressors and allows us to escape our real lives temporarily. This is good for preserving one’s mental health. For this reason, people want to take up new hobbies or revive old ones if only to take better care of their mental health.
Resolution #8: Make home improvements
A lot of people who got stuck at home this year decided to make the most of it and get some improvements done to their properties. Concrete repair, room repaints, exterior sprucing, and garden improvements are some of the things that these people have accomplished. Those who couldn’t join the home improvement bandwagon promises to do it in 2021.
Despite all the negative things that happened this year, people remain optimistic and hopeful that the year 2021 will bring better and brighter things their way.
