It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.
The best part about the New Year is that it’s a clean slate. There’s a sense of comfort in leaving the past behind, feeling encouraged to let bad habits end with 2016, and becoming motivated to make positive changes in 2017.
BEBEAKINBOADE.COM presents to you 17 New Year’s Resolutions that will guarantee your best year yet in 2017.
PRACTICE GRATITUDE AND POSITIVITY
As soon as you learn how to be more grateful, your whole life could change – not just your year. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus your energy on gratitude towards what you do have. You’ll make yourself miserable comparing yourself to others or focusing on the negative all the time. Just as easy as it is for you to complain about what’s going wrong, it’s equally easy to celebrate what’s going right. The choice is yours, and the positive mindset instead of the negative one will guarantee your best year ever.

A great goal to have for 2017 that will help you work towards your dream job is to start a passion project.

CONTRIBUTE FOR A CAUSE
Giving back to the society is the least we can do to make the world a better place to live in.
STEP UP OR STEP DOWN SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITY
If you have been out of touch with your pals and peers, social media would help you get back to the grove. But if your virtual life is affecting your personal life, it is time you remedied that.
TERMINATE THE TANTRUMS Being opinionated is okay. But having your fuse blown off at the slightest pretext is not. Neither are mood swings. They make you out of bounds for friends even if they do not want that.
GIVE UP ON A BAD HABIT
Old habits die hard – some really need to – like, biting nails, biting your lips etc.
REMEMBER THE IMPORTANT DATES
Remembering birthdays, anniversaries etc will make your loved ones feel special, wanted and cared for. If your memory doesn’t help, take the help of technology!
PAMPER YOURSELF ONCE IN A WHILE
You deserve it – do whatever your heart desires – but remember not to go overboard.
OVERCOME A FEAR OR MENTAL BLOCK
This will make you feel liberated, it will free your mind of shackles.
