At the start of the New Year it is the perfect time to assess things you want to do throughout the New Year. Making New Year's resolutions means making an effort to commit to a list of ideas and definite goals you want to achieve. No matter what promises of doing things differently or making changes in your life, there is always room for change and growth in the New Year.  

This list of inspiring New Year's resolution ideas for dads can help for you to successfully win the New Year by fulfilling your resolutions.


Learn Something New Each Day

Learning something new every day is a productive and effective way to start and end the New Year. With that being said, learning is a resolution that should be kept and focused on throughout the entire year. The saying that you learn something new everyday is positively true. There are many things you can learn whether it's different skills, math, finance, or even a different language.

Luckily, there are many platforms like Youtube where you can learn different things with tutorials and learning videos. Anything made easy is the best way to go about the New Year resolutions. Making the resolutions themselves is hard enough, right?


Pick Up a Hobby

Making the resolution to start a new hobby is a great way to improve the quality of your life throughout the New Year. In 2018, starting a new hobby will have many benefits for you. Not only will it keep you active, but it will also improve your cognitive brain functions as well as improve your health. Very scientific, I know! Haha…

Picking up a hobby in the New Year can undoubtedly be something that you'll want to stick with throughout the year. There are various hobbies that can aid in reducing stress, exercise your mind, help you to relax and certainly increase physical activity. The choice of the new hobby I leave to you. Mine is to paint more, hike more and to travel more!


Play More

With a hectic life and work schedule, you need plenty of play time too. More play time will make life more pleasurable, relieve stress, help you connect with others and help you to learn more. Playing games like Chess or doing activities like puzzles can improve brain functions as well as stimulate the mind. Or simply get out to a theme park with your kids and be a kid for a little too.

More play will help you improve social skills, teach you to cooperate and even heal emotional wounds. Also, playing will definitely keep you feeling young and energized. All positives here!


Set Aside One-Hour-A-Day to Achieve Your Dreams

I have always been an advocate of actively chase your dreams, and I think spending an hour-a-day is essential to actually realizing those dreams.

Devoting an hour a day to achieve any dreams you have for the New Year can be achieved if you allot an hour a day towards achieving your goal(s). No matter what you want to do such as start a business, pursue your dream job, build wealth or even write a book, one hour a day will help you get there a lot quicker than investing no time at all. In 2018, make it a priority to devote an hour a day to achieve any dreams that you desire for the New Year.


Learn a New Skill

Maybe there is a new skill you want to learn that you'll hope to master in the New Year. In 2018, pick a skill that you have been wanting to learn and go for it. By adding time and dedication to learning the skill, you will be able to master it by the end of the New Year. With all the information afloat online, you can certainly learn skills quickly and apply them anywhere they fit in your life.
