Have you made your new year’s resolutions yet? You’re probably not alone if you said “no.” Creating a new year’s resolution isn’t a task most people put a lot of thought into. I mean, it’s easy right? Pick from a few popular ones like lose weight or quit smoking and then give up on by the third week of January. Piece of cake!

Unique New Year’s Resolutions

However, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can pick unique new year’s resolutions that can actually transform your life. And, maybe you’ll even have a chance of keeping them! It’s because something that is more interesting will naturally keep your interest.

So, here are a few unique New Year’s Resolutions that you should try. Pick one, two, three, or all four.

Learn Something New

Can you design a web page? Want to play the guitar? Wish you could be an author? Always hoped to speak Italian? We all have things skills we wished we had or things we’ve always wanted to learn. The coming of the new year should remind you that you aren’t getting any younger.

This year, resolve to actually learn a new skill or develop a talent. It can be something practical to make you more money or anything you’ve always wanted to do. Be specific about what you want to learn and write down concrete steps to achieve it.

For example, if you want to write a book, research the publishing process and maybe take a class on writing.

Get Involved In A Charity

Was your old year primarily focused on yourself? There’s nothing wrong with making yourself happy. However, selfish people rarely live meaningful and truly happy lives. That’s why, if you’re not already involved in charitable work, it could be a unique year’s resolution.

If you’re unsure what to choose, find what you care about. Maybe it’s mental illness, the homeless, animals, or another topic. Whatever it is, find a reputable charity and donate your time and energy to making a difference. You’ll help others and feel better yourself.

Compete In A Fitness Event

There are a lot of fun fitness events every spring and summer. These range from marathons to mud runs. They are often not only physically challenging, but fun and social events, as well.

Research a fitness event in your area and sign up for it. Resolve to get in shape and train for your activity. This will give you something to keep you motivated when you train and you’ll have something fun to look forward to. And, if you start now, you should be all ready when they roll around.

I think the Tough Mudder and similar races are perfect.

Become More Popular

Most people want to be more popular. But, they might feel shallow setting it as a goal. However, being popular is really fun. And, there’s nothing shallow about wanting more friends or meeting the woman (or man) of your dreams. Those are basic human needs.

Set a goal of becoming more popular wherever you are (work, social life, etc.). Life is much more enjoyable being popular and there are skills you can learn to have a better social life. How do I know? I teach them.

Our books and media page can help you with resources to make friends and get dates.

What are you waiting for? Set those new year’s resolutions and, above all, stick with them.
