Ideas for New Year’s resolutions
Love it or hate it, it’s that time of the year again and if you still haven’t made your New Year’s resolutions, now’s the time to get scribbling. Whether you’re planning to run a marathon, give up chocolate or work that little bit harder in the classroom, January 1st is the perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf and create a better you.
1. Take better care of your phone
If you’re forever dropping your phone down the loo, sitting on your screen or knocking your handset off the table, your top New Year’s resolution should be to take better care of your valuables. Not only will a scratch, crack and dent free phone look more attractive, it will also work more efficiently and be worth more when it’s time to sell.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your phone
from accidental damage is to invest in a cover for your device. Affordable, stylish and easy to customise, covers help you add a personal touch to your phone while keeping it out of harm’s way.
2. Print more photos
Once upon a time, you couldn’t even see the photos you’d taken unless you had your film developed and your images printed. These days however, almost all of our digital snaps stay on our smartphones and cameras, destined to remain on a screen forever.
To make the most of your precious photos, why not print out some of your favourite images and put them into albums? Better yet, you can use your best snaps to personalise your new smartphone case.
3. Take up a hobby
If you’ve been inspired by The Great Pottery Throwdown, The Great British Bake off or The Great British Sowing Bee, 2016 is the perfect time to put your new found enthusiasm into action and take up a new hobby.
To make sure that your New Year’s resolution doesn’t fall by the wayside before your first tray bake is out of the oven, look for a class or course in your local area. Having friends that share your interest and a goal to work towards will help you stay motivated and ensure your new hobby is here to stay.
Exercising more is one of the country’s most popular resolutions. Whether it’s running, cycling, swimming or climbing, getting your body moving a few times a week is great for your fitness levels, mental health and general well being.
The best way to ensure you stick to your resolution is to be realistic. If you’ve never run before, you probably won’t be doing marathons by the spring, so keep your goals achievable and keep your motivation levels up.
