Unconventional New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions list

At Westminster Towers, we are tired of making the same old resolutions to exercise more and to eat less junk food — goals that we find ourselves making every year. This January, it’s time to start off with a few goals that we haven’t tried to keep yet. Join our Tacoma, WA apartment community as we make a few unconventional New Year’s resolutions. Have some you’d like to add to our list? Comment below!

Eat Breakfast Every Day

Chances are you’re skipping breakfast more often than you’re eating it. While you might laugh at the old adage “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” eating something nutritious in the morning can transform your energy levels and productivity throughout the day! Whether you eat a full meal before you head out the door for the day or you bring a protein bar and a piece of fruit with you to eat when you get to work, make it a goal not to go hungry until lunch this upcoming year.

Learn Something You Never Learnt as a Child

Now that you’re an adult, you probably have some fancy skills like a college degree, coding skills, or a mastery of Adobe Creative Suite, but there’s probably something you always wanted to be able to do as a child that you still haven’t mastered yet. Maybe it’s doing a cartwheel. It might be shuffling a deck of cards properly, and doing the bridge afterward. Or maybe you missed out on a bigger milestone like learning to ride a bike or learning to swim. Whatever is on your mind, make a goal to learn how to finally do it!

Prepare a Good Joke

Don’t you hate it when someone asks you if you have any good jokes and you just stare blankly back at them because you can’t think of any? This year, prepare for those moments ahead of time by spending an hour or two polishing one that will have your audience roaring with laughter.

Be Kind To Yourself

All joking aside, you probably practice more negative self-talk than is healthy for you. It turns out it is so much easier to be critical of ourselves than to be positive about our good qualities and our strengths! In 2019, make a conscious effort to rid your thought patterns of some of those disheartening and discouraging things you’re telling yourself. May you’ll create a list of positive affirmations, or find a way to think about something else when you detect a negative thought. You owe it to yourself to think kind thoughts about the person looking back at you in the mirror.
