4 New Years Resolutions

It’s mid-January ladies and gentlemen.

Which can only mean one thing. Your social media timelines are no doubt still being bombarded with inspirational quotes and hundreds of “new year, new me” posts. 🥱

January is almost everyone’s least favourite month of the year. We get it. Christmas is but a distant memory, the January blues have kicked in, and to top it all off, you’re down to the bottom of your bank account after spending a small fortune on presents for your friends and family.

But the good news is that January is also a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. According to Finder.com, in the UK, 86% of Gen Z will make New Year’s resolutions to try and become the best possible versions of themselves. 👀

Feeling tempted to hop on the bandwagon this year but can’t think of some off the top of your head? You’ve come to the right place. 🤝 

1. Saving money

If you’re all too familiar with blowing your Maintenance Loan in the first 2 weeks of getting it and living in your overdraft for the remainder of the semester, this one is for you. 🤑

And before you diss this idea, hear us out. 👂

Start trying to look at your money in a smart way, start with budgeting strategies, breaking down expenses and keeping track where your money is going this helps track where you can save those pennies if and where you can.

One meal deal here and another meal deal there, and before you know it, you’ve spent a hefty chunk of your student loan on enough sandwiches and crisps to feed the 5,000. They all add up.

Why not cut back on the number of Deliveroos you order each week and refrain from getting suckered into buying unnecessary things in the countless January sales? 💸

You don’t need to stop doing the things you love completely. After all, January is miserable enough as it is. But having self-control and being mindful of how much you spend each week are sure ways of staying on top of your outgoings. 

2. Getting a part-time job

Strapped for cash after the Christmas break? 🥲

3. Being more spontaneous 

This New Year’s resolution is all about setting yourself mental and physical challenges and changing your mindset. 🧠

Why not make 2023 the year you step out of your comfort zone and say yes to more things? 

Side note: being spontaneous doesn’t mean that you need to suddenly become a die-hard adrenaline junkie who does impromptu skydives and sits in ice baths. That being said, there is nothing stopping you from doing either of those things, but you get the point. 🪂

Trying out new things, whether that’s a new hobby, activity, or even a social at Uni, might end up being the best decision you’ve ever made. You never know until you try. Which is exactly why you should do things in the spur of the moment. Besides, we all know that last-minute plans are the best sort of plans. 🤩

Set yourself the challenge of doing one or two spontaneous things each week and watch what happens.

4.  Being more eco-friendly 

The truth is that we could all do with being greener and more aware of our impact on the environment. So why not start today? ♻️ 

Making small but mighty changes in your day-to-day life will have a big impact in the long run.

So let’s cut to the chase. What kind of things can you do to reduce your carbon footprint?

Clothes-wise, you can: 

  • 👔 Hit the charity shops to find some gems 
  • 🧦 Opt for Depop, Vinted or eBay
  • 🩳 Steer clear of fast-fashion brands

Also, why not invest in a reusable coffee cup to kickstart your new and improved lifestyle?

The best part? Purchasing a takeaway mug will kill two birds with one stone: you’ll save the planet one vanilla latte at a time, AND most coffee shops offer a discount when you BYOC (bring your own cup). It’s a win-win if you ask us. ☕

Whether you want to set yourself a goal this year or not, you should start the year off as you mean to go on. Albeit a bit cliché, you can do anything you set your mind to. There’s no time like the present. And quite a nice gift to give yourself!👍
