We hope you all had a lovely and safe New Year's Eve!
You may remember that we asked you to send in your 2022 New Year's Resolutions. Y'all had some awesome and achievable goals for the next 365!
You guys shared a TON of New Year's Resolutions, and we couldn't be happier to read each and every one! We've found the most popular resolutions and we wanna share them with you. Maybe there's something in the list that you might want to accomplish this year, you never know!
Here are the most popular New Year's Resolutions for 2022:
Focus On Learning
Learning at school ain't exactly what it used to be...but don't let that get in the way of your studies! Many of you are working super hard to keep your grades to help you graduate, which is amaaaaazing! Start aiming for those A+'s by putting together an organized and simple study plan to help keep you on track. Learning a little bit at a time each week is a great way to keep up with your school workload! For those of you who aren't currently in school, there's no reason why you can't take time to learn something new, too! Maybe this year is the year that you learn a new language, a musical instrument, or even just some fun facts by picking up a really cool book!
Focus on Friendships/Relationships
Friends and family are SO important! Depending on your sitch, you might be a little far away from some of your closest pals and fam at the moment. Make sure you take the time to pick up the phone and video-chat with your loved ones! If you are lucky enough to live close to some of your besties and fam, then why not bundle up and take a nice long winter walk (Weather permitting, obvs) and catch up! Not only are you getting some fresh air & exercise, but you also get the chance to chat with your BFF...and maybe even give them a belated Woozmas gift :P
Sure, travelling is a little difficult at the moment, but that doesn't mean that your travelling dreams need to stay dreams! Now's the BEST time to start saving your money so that you can finally make it to the destination of your dreams (Hopefully in 2022 *fingers crossed*). If you're someone that likes the SEE their savings, why not spend an afternoon creating your very own piggy bank for your savings with your fave jar and some glitter? From there, you can put away a little bit of money each week and see your savings grow. You'll be on the beach in your fave destination before you know it!
Make a Big Change
There's no doubt that things may have felt a little stagnant in 2021...Which is why many of you mentioned that you wanted to make a BIG change in your life. We're not talking about changing your hair color, kind of change, we mean big life changes. Some of the more popular big changes that many of you wanted to make included: Getting your driver's licence, finding a cute apartment, and even getting a new job that brings you joy! This resolution is aaaaaabsolutely doable, and you're sure to feel super accomplished once you reach your goal!
While most of us got to live it up during the summer and do plenty of activities in the sun, the cold winter months are rolling in and it's time to hibernate on the couch. Buuuuut, just because you're stuck at home doesn't mean you need to become one with your couch. Many of you mentioned that you wanted to eat better and work out more, which is an awesome goal to have...But of course, don't let this goal stop you from enjoying a sweet treat here and there, life's all about that balance, after all! Start with something small at home, like testing out some deeeeelicious & healthy meals that you want to add into your routine. There are TONS of delicious meals out there that you can alter and make your own. The same thing goes with workouts! Find a form of exercise that you love so that it doesn't feel like a chore. After all, you want to enjoy the journey, right?!
BUT...The number one resolution that most of you shared, was that you want to focus on self-love/care in the year 2022! If there's anything we've learnt in the last couple of years, it's that we need to take care of ourselves. When things feel like they are getting to be a little overwhelming, it is s u p e r important to take a break when you need it! Self-love/care comes in many different forms, so make sure you find something that makes YOU feel good! It can be something simple like high-fiving yourself for drinking more water, or even spending a night all to yourself in a bubble bath with a DIY facial! Whatever your form of self-love/care looks like, don't forget to take the time that you need to help yourself feel more at peace #TreatYoSelf
Of course, these are just a few suggestions to help you have a great year! Do you share any resolutions with your fellow Woozens?
We hope 2022 brings you plenty of joy and new adventures!
