This is a question that many people ask themselves at this time of the year. The New Year is right around the corner, and everyone goes into a mode where they think about everything they’d like to change about their lives. People come up with so many New Year’s resolutions that are set to change their lives as they know it. But how long does it take until these resolutions fall through, and everyone is back to living the life they’re used to living? It doesn’t take very long at all. We often think it’s because the resolutions set are set too high. Learning a new language even though you’re not going to the country. Learning a new instrument, going travelling around the world. The resolutions are ones that are high to achieve, rather than thinking about the ones that might be slightly easier. So rather than thinking about what you’d like to change about yourself and coming up with anything that isn’t realistic. Come up with things that you’d like to do with your life. To get the creative juices flowing, we’re going to give you some inspiration as to what you can do with your life in 2020!
Start A Hobby
Having a hobby is such a good outlet. It allows you to have a passion in life that you can call your own. If you think about your life at the minute and the routine you’re in, it won’t differ much from day to day. You’ll go to work, come home and have dinner and maybe have a little cleaner, watch the same TV shows or perhaps a new documentary and go to bed. When it comes to the weekend you might treat yourself to a takeaway. It’ll be rare that you’re out for food. If you’re living any other sort of life, then you have a little bit more of a variety than the average person. But even with that, life can get a little bit more boring than it should be. But a hobby changes all of this. It gives you a chance to escape from the reality of life that you’re used to. A hobby can be anything at all. From football to arts and crafts, you’ll be able to find something that suits you. You could even go for something done in solitude, and completely unique. Metal detecting can be done all over the world, and a hell of a lot can be found from it. Just checking out Detectorlist will show you the different metal detectors you could get depending on what you’re using it for and where. You could spend hours walking beaches and forests in your own company, some find it so relaxing. What we’re trying to prove is that there really is a hobby out there for everyone!
Quit Your Boring Job
Now if this isn’t something that the majority of people can relate to. If you have a look at the general chit chat between friendship groups and offices, it’s that they hate their jobs. Once in a blue moon you might come across people who are in love with their jobs, and they’ll seem like aliens to you. So in the New Year, why don’t you do something that’s really going to benefit your life, and start looking into new jobs. There are so many businesses out there with roles that you’re in right now, which might be more interesting. Sometimes it’s just the company ethics and the way they expect you to work that’s boring. Or it might just be your role altogether that bores you, you’ve just landed in it and stayed in it. So make the New Year a time to actually find something to do that’s going to suit you. You’re only young once, and the chance to completely change roles gets harder. Don’t be scared of taking on courses to learn, applying for big roles, and starting at the bottom. It’s never going to be easy getting a job that you genuinely enjoy. But what it will do, is give you freedom to actually enjoy your life. We spend so much time at work, and then we spend even more time complaining about it. So rather than living your life this way, become that alien that actually loves their job!
Reinvent Your Personality
This is another one that people find difficult to do. You might think that you’re stuck being the way that you are now, but this is not necessarily true. You can easily reinvent yourself to become the better version of yourself. All you have to do is think about an aspect of your personality that you don’t like at the minute. Perhaps you’re selfish. Perhaps you’re reserved. Perhaps you’re quick to anger. Whatever it is, when you really look at your personality, there will be parts of it that you know you can change. So make this year a year of becoming a better person for you, as well as the people around you. You’ll also feel so much better as a person!
See More Of Your Own Country
This is one that we definitely think people should do more often. We always think of travelling as getting on a plane and jetting off somewhere exotic. But there is so much of your own country to explore that you’re missing out on. From cities to towns and villages, there’s more to see than you probably would see if you went abroad. Going abroad usually means lounging about on a beach or by the pool. But when it’s your own country you’re more inclined to go and explore. You could go on a campervan road trip travelling through city after city. All you would need to do is pick a route, rent the campervan, and pay for the fuel. There’s no need to pay for hotels or B&Bs when your campervan becomes your home. You could even drive to a city every month just to get out and see and do something different.
