The tips below can help you plan to build a new resolution in conjunction with the Year 2022. Remember, planning a new resolution doesn't have to be too stressful and dramatic.
1.Focus on daily sleep periods
Instil in yourself to follow a better sleep period. Good sleep is crucial for mental and physical health. You can avoid spending too much time on a cell phone with adequate sleep planning. Most importantly, reduce your caffeine intake.
2.Do the activities you love
Maybe before this, you didn't have the opportunity to do what you were interested in. Examples are exercising, dancing classes or playing music. Now it's time you start stepping up to do the things you've long been interested in. Most importantly, you need to wisely choose the activities that interest you without incurring huge expenses.
3.Find time for yourself
It doesn't matter if you are working, housewife, single or married. Be alone for a while to do things like window shopping, watching movies, going to the spa and so on.
Reduce the intake of fast food or 'tapau'. Cooking is a 'me time' activity because you can focus on healthier foods. Cultivate the new year's resolution to be a more disciplined person.
5.See a doctor
Don't hesitate to do a doctor's examination to help smooth your daily life.
Don't be stingy to travel. There is no need to plan a luxury vacation because, most importantly, every location visited can provide peace of mind to oneself.
Many ignore health issues when formulating new resolutions. So we want to share some new year's goals or resolutions that revolve around health issues :
1)Reduce sitting and live an active life

This has been proven through a study by researchers from the University of Australia published in 2016. The determination to reduce sitting activity can change the pattern of your life. Try to walk for 5 minutes every 1 hour.

Everyone knows that sleep is an essential element in longevity. Those with disrupted sleep patterns are at risk for all sorts of health problems.

Snacks contain very high levels of sugar and trans fats. This can lead to obesity and other chronic diseases. That is why every individual needs to learn to cook on their own.

Try to cook once a day and if you are used to it, increase the frequency until you no longer rely on fast food.
