Lose weight. Get in shape. Eat healthier. These are some of the most common New Year’s resolutions, and they are dutifully deployed without much thought each January. But what if you took a more radical approach to resolutions? There are some things women should resolve to do to become more confident and outspoken. You can use 2016 to become the most kick-ass version of yourself ever.
By helping support other women, speaking up more often, and even learning to break the apology habit, you can make life more pleasant for yourself and those around you. These are some important resolutions that you’ll actually be motivated to keep. After all, affecting positive societal change is a worthy goal for anyone.
These resolutions can banish destructive habits, boost your self-esteem, and help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. You can learn to stop apologizing for everyday things that need no apology, or feel comfortable asking a chronic manspreader to reign in his space. By becoming more aware of the little things you do that might undermine your esteem, as well as positive changes you can make to help yourself and other women, you can kick off this January in the best possible way. If you want to feel more powerful — and elevate those around you at the same time — keep these excellent resolutions in mind throughout the year.
