20 New Year's resolutions that you can easily keep

  • 4 min read

There are two kinds of people, people with good intentions and people who 'don't do it'. But left or right, New Year's resolutions are always discussed. Certainly after a year like 2021, it is not so crazy to introduce a few simple good habits.

TIP : Don't make it too difficult for yourself, the circumstances are already less easy than usual. That's why here's a list of 20 potential New Year's resolutions from which you can probably pick a few for a great 2022.

1 - Drink more water - Because it is very easy and healthy! Also read 5 smart tips to drink more water

2 - Try something new every month - That can be bungee jumping, learning to surf, but also a new taste of beer or a different color hair... Read also Finding magic outside your comfort zone - 10 tips

3 - Balance your digital life
- Do the Happlify Digital Detox this year and you'll be covered for a whole year with help and fun tips

4 - Support of local shops and restaurants
- There you will often find the most beautiful treasures, just like with the smaller webshops ! And partly because of your purchase, you maintain that beauty and not everything becomes one and the same

5 - Choose a healthier lifestyle - That doesn't have to be difficult either! Just providing a lot more energy is also great fun, read here: 3 Simple tips to start your day energetically


6 - Go for those 10,000 footsteps
- Or at least for more footsteps. Get some fresh air in between. Take the bike or walk if you don't have to go anywhere, that makes a big difference on a daily basis

7 - Start a capsule wardrobe
- What is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is a selection of your most favorite and essential pieces that will last a season. Officially, a capsule wardrobe consists of 37 items, which hang in your closet for 3 months.

8 - Start with your happiness manual - It's very easy with Happlify your life - €20

9 - Send real birthday cards - You can find beautiful cards here

10 - Tidy up your house thoroughly - A tidy house ensures a tidy mind. Do you like to look ahead? Then read: Make your house spring proof in 5 steps


11 - Make photo books
- Start easy with a sweet little book likethis one from Hema - €3.50

12 - Hang up happy memories
- Nothing is better than pictures of good memories and lovely people around you. Use a nice changing rack likethis one from Fonq

13 - Keep in touch - Speaking of lovely people, keep those people close with contact too. You don't have to be on the doorstep every week, but a small message, card or the occasional phone call doesn't hurt to stay in each other's world.

14 - Start a new hobby
- How about dots? You can easily learn that online at Stipstijl (recommended).

15 - Cook at least one new dish every week
- So it's super easy with Hello Fresh, highly recommended if you want to discover new meals every week! Greek salad with chicken thigh is one of my favorite Hello Fresh recipes.


16 - Read more books - Discover new, fun books here

17 - Drink less alcohol - This is a good resolution for so many reasons.

18 - Always take the stairs
- In addition to an escalator, you often find a 'real staircase' and there is often such a thing at an elevator. Take yourself forever to choose the exhausting variant and voila!

19 - Invest in a good sports outfit
- Because that motivates BIG time, I can assure you. For example, at Spiffy active you will find super relaxed, sustainable sportswear

20 - Start keeping plants - Trust me, once you start paying attention to them, you won't be able to stop. In addition, plants provide more oxygen in the house. Start small with a nice plant from Bloompost for example! This is Stippie (€21.95)

And? There must be something in between, right?
