With the arrival of the new year 2012, FCNews found a great article from resolutions.com depicting the most popular resolutions for 2012:
A New year is always something which gives you hope and freshness and you tend to have new energies. It is a fact that each and every individual is different from the other and so are the new year resolutions but still there are a few common things among us all because of the same humanly nature which we have got. Listed below are the 10 best resolutions for the new year 2012;
1. Save some Money and Pay any Loans
Everyone is well aware of the existing financial situation which is prevalent all around the world. There is no doubt about the fact that even the most developed countries of the world are facing economic crisis and many people are being fired from their jobs just because the companies can no longer afford to pay their salaries. In such a case, perhaps there is no better resolution than trying to save as much money as you can for the difficult times. You should get rid of any loans you might have taken from your friends or any financial institutions.
2. Get rid of Excess Weight
Getting rid of excessive weight might be a new year resolution for many of us already but it is a very important one. Who doesn’t want to appear slim and smart and for this, you have to burn off extra fats stored in your fat. There would be many of us who have previously tried to lose weight but actually failed. However with will power, confidence and the appropriate techniques, it is very much possible to get rid of excessive weight in the coming year 2012.
3. Workout Regularly
Getting rid of excessive weight is not that important rather maintaining the newer form of the body is the actual thing. A lot of people tend to lose weight quite quickly but fail to maintain their body figure somehow. The most common mistake which people make is that they start doing very exhaustive physical workouts from the first day of the new year and as a result, they just give up after a week or so. The best way is to go slowly but sturdily so that you can continue this throughout the year. Consistency is the key in getting rid of excessive weight and maintaining the body figure.
4. Stay Happy
Most of the people are of the view that childhood is the period of life when one can be really happy though I don’t agree to this. What actually happens is that as we grow up, we tend to take up many responsibilities and forget to be happy. Responsibilities are there to be taken care of, but one should always have time for himself to enjoy and cherish the moments of life. Should you be unhappy with your current job, try to find a new one which gives you mental relaxation and happiness. If you don’t like your current school subjects, change them and choose the ones which really interest you a lot. Doing these things, you will really feel that you be able to stay much happier in life.
5. Plan everything
Planning plays a very important role in life and one cannot deny this fact. These days, we are loaded with information from all sources but we don’t have sufficient time to organize it. You should make a resolution to try and organize yourself as much as you can. I know that the time factor is always there but you have to develop the ability to sort out the things quickly. If you are well organized and are able to plan things quickly, life will become much easier for you.
6. Find your Love
I know that this is a completely natural phenomenon and we cannot plan it nevertheless there are quite a few measures which can enhance the chances of finding your beloved. For example, if you wish to buy a pair of branded shoes, you will have to go the market. In case, you stay at home, the chances of getting the shoes will be very few. Similar is the case with finding your beloved as you cannot have a life partner, sitting at home and waiting for him/her. You have to be at places where you are hopeful of finding your ideal life partner.
7. Help others Often
Assisting other individuals is perhaps the most fulfilling measure you might take which can really make you feel happier. If our little assistance can positively change the life of someone, then there is nothing better than this. Assisting someone might be in the form of sharing your knowledge, giving some financial loan or even helping him physically is some hard task.
8. Spend More Time with your Loved Ones
Spend more time with your loved ones and family members so that you can feel happier from inside.
9. Stop Smoking
Smoking is a bad habit which is also harmful for your body and may cause numerous disorders. Will power is needed to quit smoking but in addition to that, you also have to have some guidance from a professional regarding which measures to take in order to stop smoking. Stopping one of your bad habits as a part of your new year resolutions will really make you satisfied.
10. Keep on Learning
Learning anything new gives you a kind of pleasure as well as confidence that you are keeping up pace with the fast moving world.
