New Year's Resolution Ideas to Start 2022 Right

Wong Shu Lee  


  December 31, 2021

In less than 24 hours, we will officially enter a brand new year. If you haven’t started thinking about what you want to achieve in 2022, it’s about time to start thinking now. 


Maybe you haven't had much luck with keeping your New Year's resolutions in the past. But it's never too late to turn over a new leaf—and New Year's Day 2022 is as good a time as any! 


If you need a little inspiration, check out our list of New Year's resolutions that will help you make the most of 2022. Whether you want to work on your physical or mental health, hone in on your financial wellness, or create more meaningful interpersonal connections, you can choose from the following achievable New Year resolution ideas that are all worth adopting as your own.


Give more compliments


A little compliment can go a long way. In fact, research has shown that receiving a compliment can enhance positivity in relationships and increase general happiness. And giving compliments can be just as uplifting as receiving them—so you'll brighten their day and yours! 


Put your bills on autopay


Say goodbye to late fees by putting all of your bills on autopay. It's a great way to streamline your bills so you raise your credit score, save money and time, and never miss a payment. 


Take a social media break


Taking a break from social media can help decrease the feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression brought on by excessive scrolling. Let’s live in the real-life, not in social media. 


Try a spending freeze


Just like going on diet, let’s stop all of your non-essential spending for a certain amount of time, whether it's for a day, a week, or a month. If done correctly, experts say a spending freeze can even help pull you out of debt. 


Reduce your single-use plastic consumption


Plastic is part of many people's daily lives, but it's not great for the environment. Thankfully, you can do your part to help reduce carbon emissions and curb (or at least slightly slow down) global warming—it's as simple as using reusable bottles, bags, cutlery, and straws. 


Get in the habit of checking your bank account daily


It's good to get in a habit of checking your bank accounts regularly. In addition to helping you stay on top of your spending and any deposits, it can also alert you to any fraudulent charges, which are always important to get ahead of. 


Drink more water


We're all guilty of reaching for coffee, coke, milk tea—anything more exciting than plain water. However, upping your H20 consumption might be the key to radiant skin, a more balanced diet, improving the body's ability to bounce back after a tough workout, and so much more. Let’s get yourself hydrated in a proper way in 2022! 


Take more walks


Unlike hiking and running, walking is an exercise that almost all people (except those immobilized) can do and it can be beneficial for our health and well-being. Why do you think so many people started taking walks during the pandemic? While some experts would have you believe that 10,000 steps are a must, simply starting to get those steps in is something worth celebrating. 


Try new healthy recipes each week


Finding ways to cook healthier ingredients is a great step toward a healthier, happier life. Nowadays, so many dupe recipes exist that you might even find you can whip up your favorite comfort foods in healthier ways. Instead of ordering fast food for your Saturday’s lunch, let’s try on some healthy and exciting recipes! 


Donate your time


Volunteer work is not only necessary to help important organizations continue their life-changing work, it's personally rewarding, too. Whether you choose to volunteer your time to an animal rescue, beach clean-up, or soup kitchen, you're unlikely to ever regret it. 


No matter which route you choose, we wish that you can create a happier and healthier life in the new year with these resolutions. Happy New Year!
