2021 New Year’s Resolution Ideas

With a year full of hardship coming to an end, it is no surprise that people are coming up with their lists of New Year’s resolutions. Whether it be travel based in light of the new vaccines and governments being more comfortable with travel, or starting a new skincare routine, fashion for self-expression, dieting, and more – the list goes on and on. For today’s New Year feature, we, at The Modern East, have compiled a list of achievable New Year’s resolutions for 2021. The key is not to achieve the most things, but not to put pressure on yourself so that your resolutions become easy-peasy! Check out our list below.

Cook One New Thing Each Week

Everyone wants to eat healthier in the new year, but you should also try to eat more diverse foods. After all, variety is the spice of life. This year choose an easy dinner recipe you’ve never tried before at least once a week.

Create A Cleaning Schedule

Keeping your home tidy without doing what feels like a deep clean every week can feel like a big ask. It’s true that you may be under cleaning some tricky spots, but it’s also true that you may be overdoing it elsewhere.

Build a Better Budget

If there’s one New Year’s resolution that will help you the most in the long run, it’s making a vow to save more money. Before you head back to the office, outline a budget that works for you — and make a plan for how you’ll stick to it. Apps like Mint and You Need a Budget (YNAB) can help you do this as painlessly as possible.

Plan More Vacations

…When it feels safe to do so. Women who vacation at least twice a year have a lower heart attack risk than those do so rarely. And researchers have found that even thinking about an upcoming trip can boost happiness for weeks.
