Resolutions always sound like a good idea. And positive changes are wonderful. They can change the trajectory of your life over time and in your day-to-day. Typical resolutions usually revolve around topics like health, finances, and professional and personal development. While those are all wonderful metrics to monitor throughout the year, they’re not always sustainable.
In 2023 we’re looking for resolutions that will actually stick. Check out these 4 New Year’s resolutions we’re aiming for in 2023.
Turn Your Phone Off For a Few Hours Each Week
Easier said than done and that’s because your phone holds all of your music, your wallet, work contacts, friends, and family all-in-one easy-to-use place. Additionally, if an emergency were to occur, how would you call for help? There’s will always be a reason to never turn off your phone. Which is why we’re asking you to consider the idea for just a few hours a week. These don’t have to be consecutive hours but could be spread out over the course of the week. Or take Sundays as your day to ditch the phone and join the real world.
As the new year approaches, many of us are looking for ways to improve our lives and become healthier and happier. One of the best ways to do this is to de–clutter your home, car, office, and computer. De–cluttering can have a huge impact on your physical and mental health, and is not only an eye sore but detrimental to your health as well. Scientists have discovered clutter causes our cortisol levels to rise which can increase our stress levels and dampen our mood. Don’t let your possessions possess you in 2023! Take a serious look at what you’re holding on to and ask yourself, do you really need all of that stuff? Probably not.
Drink More Water
Did you know most of us are just perpetually and chronically dehydrated? Unfortunately, drinking more water isn’t enough to keep you hydrated. Ensuring that your water is filled with minerals like sodium, magnesium, and other important minerals will fulfill your body’s hydration requirements. Lack of minerals in your water is the reason why many people think drinking more water equates to more frequent urination. Without the proper minerals, your body will flush the water out without properly hydrating you.
Call Your Friends and Family Once a Month
Texting is a great way to stay in touch throughout the week or during those really busy time periods in our lives. But it’s just not the same as a phone call. Commit to calling your friends and family at least once a month in 2023. It doesn’t have to be a long phone call every time but a quick 15-20 minute catch-up can help you strengthen your connection.
