10 New Year Challenge Ideas You’ve Never Thought Of

Say good-bye to 2021 and say hello to 2022 Instead of going with the same old resolutions, try these New Year challenge ideas instead.

These New Year challenge ideas are a great way to start 2022.

2022 is here at last, and we can’t wait to see not only what this year will bring, but also what the new decade will, too. Every year, it seems we all come up with many of the same resolutions: to exercise more, to eat healthier, to save money, and so on and so on. Instead of sticking with the "usual" New Year’s resolutions, here is a list of ten New Year challenge ideas to try out instead.


1. Perform One Act of Kindness Every Day

Make someone’s day this year - by performing one act of kindness every day. Not only will they feel great, but you will, too. Plus, kindness is contagious, and you may soon find it returned!


2. Listen to a New Song Every Day

On average, about 24,000 songs are added to music streaming services every day, and one million tracks every six weeks. That is quite a selection of new, and interesting music you can sift through. Instead of hitting 'play' on your favorite jam, discover one new song every day. And, before you know it, you may find yourself with a new favorite song.


3. Volunteer at a Nursing Home Once a Month

Sometimes, in life, we forget how fortunate we are. Spread your love and joy by volunteering at a nursing home once a month. By regularly visiting, you will brighten an elderly person’s day, and you may also gain a new friend.

4. Start a Blog

You don’t have to be a writer to start a blog. Let the world know about your passion(s). Tune everyone into your favorite recipes, or show off your amazing photography skills. You never know, you may find a few fans.

5. Turn Your Phone Off

Nowadays, we focus more on our phones instead of the world around us. You need to disconnect to reconnect. So, whenever you are out on a date, or spending time with family and friends, turn off your phone and enjoy the conversation.

6. Try a New Food Each Week

The culinary world is so diverse! Shake up your usual food routine by eating something new each week. Instead of chowing down on your normal dinner, try cooking up some Thai, Korean, or even Irish dishes. Not only will you have the chance to try foods from different parts of the world, but you may find your new favorite dish.


7. Travel Somewhere New Once a Month

Our planet is big (relatively speaking). Use 2020 as the year to start exploring the globe! Whether you travel a few towns over, or hop on a plane and go across the world, as long as you are seeing something new, you're expanding your horizons.

8. Call a Family Member Once a Week

Throughout our busy year, we sometimes forget to check on the people we care about the most: our families (whether the ones we're born into, or the ones we choose and create). This year make it a point to contact a family member once a week to see how they are doing.


9. Be Kinder to Yourself

Since you're already doing one act of kindness every day, you can’t forget to be kind to yourself. We can tear ourselves down at times, and it truly takes a toll on our mental health. Instead of thinking about all the negatives, focus on all the positive attributes you have. Whether you write it down in a journal or say it out loud in the mirror, make sure to be kind to yourself every day.

10. Break a Record

Use the upcoming year as your time to do something super cool, like breaking a record. It doesn't matter if you choose to break a world record or your own personal record, you are proving to yourself that you can work towards achieving anything you set your mind to.

Now that you are well-versed in these unique New Year’s challenge ideas, it’s time to stick to them. We hope you have an amazing year - and decade - ahead!
