As 2017 draws quickly to a close, it’s time to begin thinking about how you’re going to make 2018 the best year of your life to date. Many people choose to create resolutions, and as you probably already know, many people also fail to stick to these resolutions too. Regardless of how good or bad this year has been for you, there should always be room for improvement within your life and in this article, is going to be some things to consider doing in 2018 which will improve your outlook on life.
Start a blog
Many people find a lot of release in blogging because it allows them to connect with people that are like minded, and also allows you to release stresses of your day. It also allows you to help other people through your writing, whether that be something inspirational you’ve posted or the solution to a problem they are having, it will certainly help you to see things from other people’s perspectives. This can encourage you to either help them as much as possible (realizing you have it better than you thought) or help you make necessary changes to your life for the better.

Push yourself to the limit
Another thing that many people choose to do to help them gain clarity in their lives is to push themselves to the limit in some way. This could be choosing to do a triathlon and pushing yourself into training for it so that you can complete the challenge. Doing this will allow you to see how far you can push yourself and also make you realise how unfit or inactive you really are. Just don’t forget to buy your trisuit! You may even find that whatever you choose to do will turn into a hobby that you can enjoy for years to come.
Make your health a priority
This should be a given, but millions of people around the world neglect their health in ways such as not eating correctly, not exercising enough, binge drinking, smoking and also drug use. All of these things can not only affect your physical health, but can dramatically affect your mental health too. If you’re struggling with any of the above, go and see your GP so that you can get yourself back on track and become the healthiest that you can be. You will find that the healthier you are, the more that you enjoy life!
Finally, one thing that we all forget to do sometimes is smile. Simply smiling can make you feel better in yourself and allow you to have a better day. Be sure to allow yourself time to enjoy the little pleasures in life! It’s only when you force yourself to smile that you realize how much pressure you put yourself under.
