Are you ready for 2015? In order to make sure you do everything in your power to have a better new year than the one that is about to finish, you need to prepare in advance. So after taking the time to draw the line and reflect on the highs and lows of 2014, create a list of resolutions for 2015. Don’t forget to write it down so you can check it from time to time and see how you’re doing.
To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of 10 most popular New Year resolutions people all over the world make. You will surely find a few that will inspire you.
1. Get healthier
You definitely want to do this in the year to come. Eat healthier food, exercise more often, get more sleep… It’s on all of our lists! Also, don’t wait too long to see a physician if you feel something is wrong and cut down on things that aren’t good for you (Coke, cigarettes, or any other guilty pleasure).
2. Save some money
Whether or not you plan to do something big, like buying a house, taking an expensive trip, or going to college, saving money is always a good idea. Someday you will thank yourself for doing so, even if that day is not in 2015.
3. Stay in touch with your friends, wherever they are
Our social life is a very important part of who we are and a fulfilling social life contributes heavily to our well being. Even if some of your friends are far away from you, you can still stay in touch with them like nothing’s changed. KeepCalling.com offers you affordable rates and many calling options so you can reach any corner of the world whenever you want to.
4. Stress less
Stress is not only a very uncomfortable feeling, but also a threat to your health in the long run. Manage stress and even avoid it altogether by planning ahead, prioritizing, and relaxing whenever you need to.
5. Take some time for yourself
Have you ever felt like your life asks too much of you and that time flies too quickly? If so, then you should consider shutting down for a while when you start feeling overcome. Breathe deeply, listen to a relaxing song, take a walk, plan your next holiday… The important thing is to recharge your batteries if you want to keep going.
6. Make small gifts, just because
Don’t you love it when somebody gives you nice surprises? It doesn’t even have to be something big, it’s the thought that counts. For the New Year, you could try surprising others in turn. Sending your wife flowers, buying a box of chocolates for you grandmother, or recharging the mobile of someone dear who is far away are all equally good ideas. However, sending a top up is the easiest solution, because it’s available for you at the push of a button through our Mobile Recharge service, which allows you to recharge mobiles belonging to over 300 operators in more than 100 countries.
7. No more frenemies!
Your friends are people who genuinely care about you and are interested in spending time with you. If you have certain “friends” who say untrue things about you behind your back or who are unfair to you, maybe it’s time to reconsider your relationship. The time and energy you invest in trying to please such “frenemies” are wasted.
8. Strengthen relationships with family members
Blood is thicker than water. Your grandparents, aunts, and cousins will always be there for you even if you only talk a few times a year. So why not talk more often? As you know, KeepCalling.com supports your efforts of building stronger relationships with your loved ones, wherever they may be.
9. Get involved, help more
Volunteering, helping out, being charitable are words that sound so good. How about it if next year you put these big words into practice? It’s not as hard as you think, you can start with little gestures that mean a lot. Like helping a child you know get better grades, donating a small amount of your income each month, or being nicer to someone you don’t really like.
10. Check something off your bucket list
Since you’re now making a resolution list, I’m pretty sure you already have a bucket list. Next year is a good time to start crossing things off that list! Do you dream of visiting an exotic place or trying out an extreme sport? Stop postponing and start acting!
All lists aside, KeepCalling.com wishes you and your loved ones a fulfilling New Year and happy holidays! Have the 2015 you wish for!
