If you are like Calvin who doesn’t like to make a new year resolution, this article is not meant for you, so please move on!
Are you all set to ring in the new year 2019 with a bang? So, what are your resolutions for this year? Confused on how to pick one that you wouldn’t break? Here’s a list of 6 Offbeat Resolutions to Take This This Year that you would have a fun following and wouldn’t risk embarrassing yourself among your peers for not following.
Talk To A Stranger:
On your way to work, a co-worker, someone in your neighborhood, or probably someone at the grocery store, just smile and strike a random conversation. Smile more often, and by the end of the year, you would evolve into a calmer and more approachable person than you already are. But make sure you don’t sound creepy and like a stalker, step away if they don’t look interested.
Meet People Offline:
Your friend, relative, long-lost cousin, make sure you catch up with people offline and get to know them in a world beyond the screen. Maybe not on a daily or monthly basis, we know that’s not possible, but at least make sure you do it once a month or once in two months. And when you do meet these people, remember to keep your phones away, there is a reason why we call it meeting people offline 😉
Watch A Foreign Language Film:
Films introduce us to a new culture and a whole new world, so why not explore the outside world from the comfort of your couch by picking a cinema from a different language or country? You never know, you might fall in love with it so much that you might start binge watching. If you are clueless on how to pick a film in a different language and don’t have friends who could suggest you what to watch, you have IMDB to your rescue 😉
Walk A Short Distance Every Day:
Not for fitness, not for weight loss, not to save fuel. Just to enjoy some “me time” go on a short walk every day. This could even be to the grocery store or to a friend’s place in your neighborhood.
Try A New Cuisine:
Explore restaurants and food joints in your city and try out new food. Exploring new cuisines would increase your levels of excitement about dining outside because you never know what awaits you. And if you are not sure on what to order, you always have foodie groups and friends to suggest your dishes. So, go on and try that new restaurant in your city, explore newer foods, you never know what your taste buds might fall in love with 😉
Listen To A New Genre Of Songs:
All of us have this one friend or friends that bring in new music, songs, and artists into our life and these people are very important because they change our life in a way we never thought was possible. And they do that in a wonderful way. So, this year, celebrate such people and also venture into exploring newer genres of music, artists, and songs. Happy listening!
Don’t forget to share this with your friends and tell us your idea of offbeat resolutions to take.
