Lose weight. Quit social media. Cut out alcohol completely. Blah blah blah snoozefest. These are all good goals, don’t get me wrong. But we set the same New Year’s resolutions every single year and then… never really stick to them. So, for 2022, why not shake things up a bit and try creating resolutions of a different variety? Plus, let our candles help you to stick to them ;)
1. Focus on a Passion, Not the Way You Look
First of all, we wanted to inform readers that resolutions are in fact NOT an invitation to start a diet or a workout plan but a beautiful reminder that a new year can bring new life to your passions. Secondly, if you are also too concerned what other people think, well F*uck What They Think. Smell ya later, haters!
2. Work out to feel good, not be thinner.
Instead of obsessing over the scale, obsess over how amazing you feel since you started being more active. Numbers don’t mean much, so Let That Sh*t Go.
3. Stop multi-tasking.
Multi-tasking can lead to memory problems, it reduces our brains’ grey matter, it hurts productivity and efficiency, and it can even increase stress, anxiety, and depression. Focus on one thing at a time & be On Fire.
4. Talk to yourself with kindness.
We aim to be nice to others but then criticize ourselves relentlessly. Stop! Think nicer things about yourself and don't forget - You Are ASSome.
5. Let go of grudges.
Wouldn’t it be nice to start 2022 with a clean slate? Leave hate behind. Anger is so 2021. Remember, Ain't Nobody Got Time For That.
6. Avoid people who complain a lot.
It doesn’t matter how positive a person you are. Negativity spreads, and it will impact you...and nobody will benefit from you going into Depresso mode.
7. Try Guided Meditation
Meditation offers a whole host of science-based benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety and improved memory and attention span. Try an app like Headspace. Namaste!
8. Remove negativity or anything that makes you feel lousy.
9. Spot Clean as You Go
Overwhelmed by a filthy house you have to clean from top to bottom each weekend? Simple solution: Clean as you go. Wash dirty dishes after each meal and wipe down toilets and countertops throughout the week. Easy peasy. We know, You Can do it!
10. Pay it Forward
Did someone do something nice for you recently? 2022 is a great time to do something nice for another. Maybe you’ll pay for someone’s coffee in the Starbucks drive-thru or buy a meal for a homeless person. Receive good things, and spread them, too. Let people know that they're a treasure & You Are a Treasure too.
