4 New Year Resolutions You Can Actually Manage To Keep
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized at the start of a new year by your own aspirations. As you will most likely forget about your new green-juice-detox and stop going to your new chic boutique gym around the corner/pick up smoking again by the end (more like the second week) of January, we thought we would save you time and energy and give you some inspiration for new year resolutions that you can actually stick to. And will make you feel good about yourself!
- Put your phone down from time to time
We know, we know. We’re not trying to be cutting-edge here, but think about the time wasted on your phone every day, scrolling through Facebook and seeing your former bestie living her best life in Bali. It’s masochistic! We’re certain you can put that time to better use. No negative vibes in the new year, right?
- Have more meaningful conversations
It’s so easy to get hung up in the usual chit-chat, even with your closer friends. When is the last time you had a long, meaningful talk with a friend… or even a stranger? Let us tell you – It. Feels. So. Good. What is your passion? What is your biggest fear? What makes you happy? You get the idea!
- Improve your concentration and mental skills
In the fast paced life we live in, it’s important to take an occasional breather. There are so many books and apps on how to get started, it’s easy! Meditating can help your concentration, let you control your mood and make more conscious decisions. But most importantly, it will help you learn faster which brings us to #4.
- Learn a new language
How to better push yourself to try something new than starting a new language you’ve been meaning to learn for the past 3 years? Not only will learning a new language help improve your communication skills, it will also look great on your resume and possibly open up some doors for you. Speakeasy really takes the class room out of the class room. Don’t worry about stiff and boring classes – we’re known for making it fun! That’s your path to self-improvement, all while ticking off number 1, 2 and 3 from this list! From Arabic to German to Russian - you name it, we offer it!
