Forget those typical, boring New Year’s resolutions in 2022 and go for something that’s actually practical and that you can look forward to. From throwing it down in the kitchen with some new recipes to being a better friend, here are some fun ways to bring new light to life in 2022.
New Week, New Recipe
While plopping yourself onto the couch and ordering a pizza is a common go-to habit in quite a few households, it can be…well, boring. Spice up your life each week by committing to trying a new recipe. It doesn’t have to be complicated or out of your skill scope. Just hop onto Pinterest or YouTube and search around for new recipes. Or make it super easy by trying a new meal kit service, like Hello Fresh.
Call Up That Friend
It’s time to stop putting people off. Say goodbye to the “sorry, it’s been a busy week” texts that forever drag on. Whether you’re an introvert, extrovert, or an ambivert, there’s zero excuses for putting off friendships. As humans, we’re naturally social creatures and even feel an uplift in mood from positive social interaction. So reach out to that friend who you’ve been putting off the past few months, say hi, and set a date to meet up. And if it helps, set a reminder on your calendar to reach out.
Book Out Your Health Appointments
It’s about to be 2022 and the future is quite literally at our fingertips. Having a smartphone in your back pocket means you have a seriously straightforward way to stay up-to-date on appointments. So at the start of this next year, or even before, call your physician, your dentist, and any specialists to get those appointments booked out onto your calendar – your wellbeing will thank you!
