We know not everybody likes ‘New Year’s resolutions’ but a list of ways to make your year better can’t hurt! We’ve compiled a variety of different ways to make 2022 your best year yet.
1. Take More Photos
Nobody ever regretted taking too many photos! Even mundane activities and days deserve documentation. So pick up your phone, camera or disposable camera and start snapping away! We promise it’ll be one of the best decisions you’ll make today.
2. Start Journaling
Journaling is an amazing way to release pent up thoughts- good and bad. It’s therapeutic to vent to nobody and leave all your emotions on a page. It can also be a creative way to store any lists, thoughts and memories you might have. You can simply keep a digital journal on your laptop, or have a hard-copy to decorate and draw in.
3. Go on More Walks
Walking is not only an amazing form of exercise, it’s also a great way to explore your neighborhood and have some time to yourself! Put in your earbuds and turn on your newest favorite album or podcast, and just enjoy your surroundings.
4. Adopt a Pet
This one might be slightly more of a commitment than the others on this list, but hear us out! Now that a lot of us are working from home, a pet is a great way to have companionship during the alone hours. Even if you don’t work from home, having a furry friend to go home to seems like a great idea to us!
5. Go Screen-Free for a Week
We know this isn’t plausible for a lot of people (and probably not ideal for most) but taking some time away from your screens is so beneficial! It’s easy to be buried in seeing what your friends are up to on Instagram, or trying the newest TikTok trend but taking some time away from a social media life and focusing on a more social life is never a bad idea.
6. Learn Another Language
2022 is the year to brush up on that language you ‘learned’ in high school- or just attempt to learn a new language from scratch! You’ll be more knowledgeable, have a new activity and you’ll thank yourself when you end up traveling somewhere that speaks the language!
7. Invest in Yourself
Yes, this one is ambiguous but we think it’s so important to invest in yourself! Whether this means treating yourself to new jewelry every once in a while, or funding your own dance classes, it’s so important to encourage yourself to become the person you want to be.
8. Pick Up a Hobby
2022 is the year of talent and ambition! Make some time in your day to start learning a new hobby. You can learn to crochet, paint, dance or sew! Whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed to keep busy AND have a new party trick.
9. Take Yourself on Dates
This goes hand in hand with investing in yourself- getting to know yourself and learning how to be by yourself is a great way to encourage independence and self-growth. Treating yourself to a nice meal or activity every once in a while is a wonderful way to spend your 2022!
10. Develop a Routine
Spend this year figuring out what routine works best for you! Whether this is an exercise routine, skincare routine or even a day-to-day agenda, finding a routine will make your life just that much easier.
