New Year Resolution Idea #10: Post a beautiful picture each day
Another way to resolve to use social media better this year is to make a goal to post one picture each day of something in your life you find beautiful. It can be as simple as a leaf curling on the sidewalk or the pattern raindrops make on your window. Simply taking a moment to look for something beautiful and capture it on camera will give your spirit a lift. Posting it will inspire others to look for the beauty in their lives as well.
New Year Resolution Idea #11: Take a walk outdoors every day
“Exercise more” probably already made your resolution list, but if that’s all you wrote, then you’re destined to fail. The more specific and doable your goal, the more likely you are to, you know, actually do it. Walking is a great exercise to start with. Not only can nearly everyone do it, but it’s free and you can multitask by listening to a podcast or talking with a friend. Add in the great outdoors and you’ll get some fresh air and sunshine.
New Year Resolution Idea #12: Smile at a stranger every day
A man who committed suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge left behind a note that read, “I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.” That story had a heartbreaking ending for that man, obviously, but it shows the power of a little human kindness. Smiling at a stranger on the bus, in the store, at the gym, or on your way to work costs you nothing but could have a powerful effect on someone’s life. Make a resolution to give a smile, every day. Best part? You’ll probably get one in return too.
