6 Positive New Year’s Resolutions 

Hike for health

New Year’s Resolutions are a great way to incorporate new activities into your life, accomplish a goal or continue good practices.

But the classic resolutions, like cutting out certain foods, can be restrictive. Why not try something a little different this year?

Here is a list of six ideas for mood-boosting New Year’s resolutions; suggestions to lift the spirits.

1. Cherish memories

Memories are one of the most precious things we have – find old photos that remind you of happy times and make an album or upload pics to a printing website and create a photo book. Or you could choose your favourite images and order canvases to hang on your wall.

YouTube is a great place to keep family videos. You can keep your account private and just share it with friends and family. This is sure to guarantee a smile and a giggle!

2. Be creative

Making something lovely gives such a sense of achievement; even more so if you give it to someone else to love. Find your ‘niche’ and revel in your creative abilities – everyone has a talent. It could be baking something gorgeous, sewing, knitting, painting, calligraphy, photography – the list is endless.

3. Bake bread

It doesn’t have to be a fancy loaf – simply buy some bread flour and follow the recipe on the packet. The method of mixing and kneading – and of course enjoying the final result – is incredibly therapeutic.

4. Play a game

It’s easy to settle into a mundane routine; doing the same thing every day. Instead of watching tv one evening, play a card game or a board game. It’s sure to entertain the family and bring some good old-fashioned fun!

5. Enjoy feel-good exercise

Get those endorphins flowing with exercise. It has to be something you enjoy, or you’ll never stick to it. It could be hiking or yoga, Zumba or swimming, anything that makes you smile while you’re doing it, and gives you that fuzzy afterglow.

6. Expand your culinary horizons

Sometimes we can get stuck in a rut, cooking the same meals week-in, week-out; choose a different cookbook each week to try one or two recipes from (take a look at the range of cookbooks we have available). Or give yourself the challenge of cooking the weekly recipe from your Dairy Diary each and every week!
