New Years Resolution Ideas

We have compiled some of our ideas for your new-year resolutions.

Eat a different fish for every day of January

This is a great way of starting a diet, as fish is generally low calorie – if you can avoid it battered and with a big pile of chips. Why not try to eat a new fish for every day of January?  We did it – and it is easier to get to 30 fishes than you think – even without getting to a well-stocked fishmonger. You can start with the more common fish – Cod, Haddock, Plaice, Trout, Salmon, Tuna, Sole, Herring (Kippers) and Mackerel – even before you get onto the shellfish of Crab, Lobster, Mussels, Whelks, Winkles, Oysters, Prawns and Shrimps.

And if you start to look around you could easily find Skate, Hake, Coley, Hoki, Perch, Pike, Eel, Halibut, Swordfish, Huss and Squid … before you know it, you will easily be up to 30.

Improve your presentation skills

Presentation skills are perhaps one of the most important life skills that you can learn. Why not set yourself a resolution to book yourself onto a presentation skills training class.

Resolve to read a book a month

A great way of getting an escape – if you only read the paper or magazines – resolve to have read twelve books by the end of the year.

Grow 12 different vegetables

This was one of my most successful new year’s resolutions. Within a year, I had grown in a very small plot Radishes, French Beans, Lettuce, Spinach, Potatoes, Carrots, Sweet Corn, Mini Cauliflower, Tomatoes, Courgettes and Cabbages. Admittedly, it was not a massive harvest, but it was good fun and very healthy, both for body and soul.

Or if you are like most of the country and want to either get fit or lose weight, here are two ways of doing it.  We have a list of easy to grow vegetable ideas.

Brush up on PowerPoint

If your presentation skills are up to scratch you could try improving your PowerPoint skills. Most people can manage to produce a few bullet-point slides, but you could take it much further by adding in pictures, video and animation.

Get fit
Join a yoga class – you will both get fit and learn to relax. If you are pressed for time, most swimming pools open for early-morning or lunchtime swimming.

Lose weight
This is an idea that I cannot say that I am an expert on – as, like 97% of dieters, I have struggled to find one that has worked for me long term. With Weightwatchers I lost the most weight, but it came back within the year and was hard work. The Atkins diet showed by far the fastest weight loss, and I lost a stone in three weeks. The trouble was that I felt really very grotty during this period and I was not easy to live with.

But, of all the diets, the one that has worked longer time than all of the others was to stop eating when your stomach told you that you had had a sufficiency. We are so used to overriding this natural reflex that most young children have. It does usually mean not having pudding or second helpings and frequently means stopping eating with your plate still full. This is the method that I used to gradually lose two stone (28 pounds) over the course of a year – and to this day, one of those stones (14 pounds) has never gone back on.

Start a new hobby

Hobbies are a great way to occupy your mind and to help you relax.  We have developed a very long list of hobby ideas for you to try out.

Whichever resolution you choose – try an easy one – as it is very rewarding at the end of the year to say that you were able to achieve your new year’s resolution.

Do you have any ideas for a new year’s resolution?  Just add them into the box below.

  60. I have to stop seeking attention, remember that I am not the centre of the universe. Stop taking and start giving. It is difficult because I am very selfcentred

    Jill Cooke 8 Jan at 1:38 pm
  61. I broke mine already:(

    Vanessa 21 Jan at 4:12 pm
  62. My 2010 resolutions and solutions:
    1. Learn to say “no” in a mature way (Solution: state my feelings and my reasons in a rational way. Or even when my feelings can not be rationalised, I need to feel confident saying “I don’t feel comfortable doing this”)
    2. Go for what I want (Solution:know what i want, and go for it!)
    3. Engage in exercise for at least 60 mins a week (Solution: Fast walk to the train station at least 3 times a week)
    4. Do 5 mins matt exercise everyday (Solution: Position the matt in front of TV. If I have time to watch TV, I will have time for the 5-min exercise.)
    5. Be brave (Solution: stand for what i believe when I feel scared. Fight back when I know I am right- not physically, expecially not under the influence of alcohol. :P)
    6. Follow a new recipe every month and enjoy home made good food (Solution: make my hubbie choose an ingredient every month and search for a new recipe online. Get a good bottle of wine and enjoy the good healthy food at home).
    7. Make a good friend (Solution: There is no schedule for when a good friend will come along. I think I will start with treating people nicely and talking to people more, then a good friend may come out of it.)
    8. Enjoy nature more (Solution: book a camp site, go fishing and caravan-ing Tassie)
    9. Be a happy person with influence (Solution: This is actually really hard. Being happy is hard enough on a day to day basis. But also I have to be influential. It is not just about appearing to be bubbly, it is about sharing my knowledge and hope with people. I think I will try my best.)
    10. Do not say silly things (Solution: this is the hardest one. Not saying silly things is like, not being myself. A part of me is defined by doing and saying silly things. Ok, I think I will change #10 to “Be more sensitive”. Solution: listen, think, before I speak)
    *. Have a plan for this year and the next 3 years in relation to what I want to do with my life (Solution: Sadly, I dont have a solution for this – that is why I didnt number this one. This one was passed on from 10 years ago, every year i had this one on my list. I dont know what i want to do with my life. One hand, I think maybe I should just wait till something comes along; on the other hand, I think maybe i should chase my dream (which is almost entirely different with what i do right now)…Can someone help me please?)
