7 New Year Resolutions You Can Actually Accomplish in 2022

The checklist of New Year resolutions seems well within reach when you’re looking ahead to January. In fact, almost everything is possible.

A six-pack by June? Easy. Read 100 books? Make it 102. Finally conquer that crushing mountain of debt? Totally doable.

Except, if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that life is unpredictable and we can’t always accomplish every New Year resolution we set out to achieve. Some of us fail by April and at least 80% of us fail by the second week of February.

Setting lofty goals and feeling overwhelmed by the pressure you put on yourself is one of the most common reasons why New Year’s resolutions fail.

But there’s a way to prevent that from happening in 2022 start by setting small, achievable goals. Try these 7 New Year resolution ideas to stay on track and fulfill your personal enhancement goals.

7. Do One New Thing a Month

New Year resolutions often crash and burn because they try to tackle too much too fast. But you can take things as slowly as you want. The key to setting good New Year’s resolutions is simply moving forward at your own pace.

Set a goal once a month to do something you’ve never done before. That could mean eating at a new restaurant, gardening, learning salsa, or even painting your bedroom a different color. However small or big, it’s still something to look back on at the end of the year.

6. Save a Small Percentage of Your Paycheck

New Year Resolution: Save a Small Percentage of Your Paycheck


When you’re living paycheck to paycheck, you might feel tempted to splurge the moment your bank account is replenished. But impulsive purchases can add up, no matter how affordable they seem in the moment,  and that’s why a New Year resolution of opening up a savings account can offer you peace of mind.

At least 20% of your annual income should go to savings, but if you save less in one month than you’re supposed to, don’t beat yourself up about it. If you haven’t saved before, you can start by saving as little as $100 and working your way up month by month.

5. Do Your Bit for the Environment

You can certainly make a New Year resolution to go vegan or adopt a zero-waste lifestyle, but trying to accomplish those goals can be a jarring change if you’ve never attempted it before. 

Instead, take baby steps. Try incorporating one plant-based meal into your diet, start donating clothes and thrifting when you can, carry a reusable tote bag to the supermarket, purchase a set of eco-friendly metal straws, and recycle as much as possible.

4. Be Kind to Yourself and Others

Before you start your day, think about how you can add a sprinkle of positivity to your day and others’.

The best part is you don’t have to go out of your way to fulfill this New Year resolution. A small act of kindness will suffice.

Text a friend you haven’t heard from in a while. Call your parents. Cook a meal for your partner. Treat yourself to a cupcake from your favorite bakery. Allow yourself to take a whole day off and do what you want to do.

Being kind to others may come easier than being kind to yourself, but remember that you don’t need an excuse to justify why you’re treating yourself to something that makes you feel good.

3. Change Up Your Look

New Year Resolution: Change Up Your Look


Losing weight and exercising are among the top 10 most common New Year resolutions. But fitness resolutions tend to be short-lived because most people expect results fast.

In reality, you might notice some progress after a few weeks of consistent training and clean eating, but shedding the ‘quarantine 15’ and learning to maintain it could take a few months. 

On the plus side, there are easier ways to transform your look and see instant results. Take a few inches off your hair, try a new hair color, get a tattoo, or simply switch up your personal style. Make 2022 the year you decide to embrace bold colors, mix patterns, and find the courage to wear outfits you’ve always wanted to but never thought you could pull off.

2. Try a New Recipe Each Week

Sometimes, at the end of a long day, all you want to do is order pizza. And that’s understandable. Life can get in the way of cooking every single day. Either you don’t have the time or you have social obligations.

But setting a New Year resolution to cook just one new recipe accomplishes three things: you save money by eating at home, the food is better for you because you know exactly what’s going in it, and you have a chance to brush up on your cooking skills.

Trying a different recipe each week can also introduce you to a variety of dishes and cuisines and cooking the meal won’t even take long — a Google search for easy 30-minute dinner ideas just might yield enough results to last you a whole year.

1. Get More Sleep

New Year Resolution: Get More Sleep


While it sounds easy enough to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep every night, not a lot of people do.

In fact, the Puffy Sleep Survey found that 59% of respondents were averaging less than 6 hours of sleep per night in 2020. But better sleep is essential for overall health and clocking in 8 hours can offer many benefits, including increasing productivity, improving mood, boosting the immune system, preventing weight gain, and more.

If you suspect your mattress is the culprit behind your sleepless nights or you’ve had the same mattress for more than 8 years, it’s time to invest in a new one. For the best sleep, opt for a luxury mattress that provides optimal support and comfort.

Hybrid mattresses and memory foam mattresses are among two of the most popular choices because they’re designed to alleviate aches and pains and the reduce transfer of movement, which means you won’t feel a thing even if your partner tosses and turns during the night.

After you’ve chosen a luxury mattress that’s ideal for you, evaluate your bedtime routine, and form simple habits to fall asleep fast.

Try going to bed at the same time every night, avoid consuming alcohol or caffeine before bed, turn off your electronic devices at least 30 minutes before sleeping, and ensure your bedroom environment is conducive to getting a good night’s sleep.

 

Setting New Year resolutions can seem like a trite task, especially when you can’t drown out statistics about the failed ones. But thinking about resolutions can help you reflect on the past and gain a better understanding of what needs to change in the future.

Despite what the phrase says, a new year won’t necessarily foster a new you, but it can motivate you to be better and resolutions help with that.
