There’s no denying that 2020 was quite the chaotic, unpredictable year. While 2021 will likely come with its own trials and tribulations, there’s peace and satisfaction that comes with knowing there’s a fresh start on the way. That means there’s also an opportunity to set new goals and start planning for ways to achieve them.
While traditional New Year’s resolutions are great for overall health and boosting morale — exercising more often, saving money, watching less T.V., etc. — consider taking a more unique approach in 2021. Take the new year for exactly what it is: reenergizing with a fresh start, and doing so in a way you’ve never tried. Here are some non-traditional New Year’s resolutions to consider:
Spend More Time with Nature
It’s difficult to say how soon things will get back to normal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t step outside and spend more time surrounded by everything Mother Nature has to offer. It’s great for your overall health because getting outside more often boosts vitamin D and energy levels, elevates mood and can encourage more exercise.
Pay it Forward as Often as You Can
Random acts of kindness happen all of the time, so why not make yourself one of the people spreading cheer? Something as simple as paying for the person behind you in the drive-thru, holding the door open for strangers and sending motivational text messages to family members are great ways to pay it forward.
Create a New, Open Mindset
It’s easy to get closed in by our own hard perceptions of others. Instead of turning a blind eye to the way you look at strangers, acquaintances or even friends or family members, take time in the new year to open up your mind to different perspectives and possibilities. Holding grudges can weigh heavily on your shoulders, so learn to let things go this year instead.
Gift Yourself More Often!
There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself. If you need a morale boost or you’re looking for a simple way to spruce up your home, Teleflora can lend a helping hand. We have hundreds of different bouquets to choose from that can be shipped directly to your door (with contactless delivery). Choose from some of the classics, such as daisies, roses or sunflowers, or let a local florist create a unique arrangement for you with our Deal of the Day option. No matter what type of flowers you’re looking for, we can provide a bouquet that’s sure to lift your spirits in times of need and make 2021 the best year yet.
