They might bring about a heightened sense of new beginnings, but the rigid expectations many people set for themselves with new year's resolutions each year often lead to disappointment down the line. Let's face it – 2020 was difficult enough as it was, so don’t make this year even harder by subjecting yourself to a regimen of green juice and 7am workouts in a bid to lose that extra quarantine weight.
Instead, embrace the opportunity to try new things, prioritise your wellbeing and plan for greater things ahead with more realistic solutions. Try swapping a cold-turkey approach to booze for low-alcohol cocktails and early-bird workout sessions for relaxing Zen meditation. By tackling the same old goals via alternative methods, 2021 might turn out to be your brightest year yet.
