New Year’s Resolutions to Start 2012 With a Bang

Forget the usual resolutions, add a bit of spice to the new year by resolving to do something exciting, exhilarating or just downright fun. While quitting smoking, cutting down on the drinking and losing weight are all admirable aims, people often put too much pressure on themselves to meet unrealistic expectations. Instead, why don’t you add a touch of enjoyment to it and pick something you’ve always wanted to do - or even better, something you never even dreamed you would ever do. Whether it’s jumping out of a plane or learning an obscure new sport, resolve to do something truly memorable in 2012. Here are a few suggestions to give you some inspiration:

Jump for joy
When it comes to ticking off a truly exhilarating experience that will live long in the memory, jumping from a great height often tops the list for many thrill-seekers. Whether you are in search of the ultimate adrenalin rush or want to conquer a fear of heights, challenge yourself to parachute from a plane or tackle a daring bungee jump.

Learn a new sport
It’s always great to challenge yourself, so starting off the new year determined to pick up some new skills is a worthwhile ambition. Choosing a new sport has great health benefits too and can do wonders for your sense of well-being and social life at the same time, so it helps tick plenty of worthy boxes for New Year’s Resolutions. Even if you’ve never picked up a golf club, lessons and taster sessions are available for all ages to have you swinging and winning by the time 2013 rolls around. Or for something more unique and a great conversation piece, try something even more unusual - archery, fencing, martial arts or watersports will all be featuring at the Olympics in London this year and you can follow in the footsteps of the Olympians and try them out yourself at clubs around the country.

Learn to cook
Eating healthier is a priority for many people when it comes to setting their New Year’s targets. But healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring and learning how to do it can be great fun too, whether you do it on your own or with family and friends. Spice up your own cooking skills with lessons from expert chefs and you’ll learn some skills for life and how to make the most of fresh, healthy ingredients.

Get pampered
If you want to feel healthier for the New Year then why not pamper yourself while you do it? Losing weight or detoxing after the excesses of the party season is tough enough at the best of times, so you may as well treat yourself to a touch of luxury while you do it. Booking in for a spa experience days or even a healthy weekend retreat is a great way to start as you mean to go on, you’ll get some great advice from experts, recharge your batteries for the year ahead and have a great time in the process, perfect for banishing the January blues.
