3 Ways of Trying Something New in 2021

2020 has been hard on everyone - but 2021 doesn’t have to be. Of course, you can’t influence the pandemic or financial crisis, but you can impact your everyday life. So, why not change it - a little or a lot? Your life can be amazing even now when everyone has to stay at home and deal with stress, anxiety, and insecurity.


Changes can be scary; however, even doing something small, like getting a new haircut, can help you shift perspective from negative to positive sides of your life. Of course, if you want and have the energy for it, go for some rapid changes - especially if your life seems stagnant. Don’t worry, you don’t have to move to another country, get married in a month or try extreme sports. If you want to change your life significantly, even finding a new job can make it better.


Of course, everyone is different. You don’t have to do anything you’re uncomfortable with. Changes should start in you - mentally, physically. Finding a new hobby, buying that dress you always wanted, trying yoga - all those things can make your 2021 unforgettable. And if you don’t know where to start, we’re here to help. Take a look at these three ways how you can change your life in 2021.

Change Your Style

If you don’t have the energy for significant changes or don’t want to rush into it, start small - with your style. How many clothes do you have in the wardrobe? And how many do you wear? How many of them make you feel happy? Do you still feel astonishing in those jeans you bought three years ago? Give away anything you don’t like, look at what you’re left with and buy something new - something unique that you’d never imagine buying. That 50’s swing dress? Or a blouse with puffed sleeves? Go for it! 


Don’t forget about the accessories: earrings, bracelets, and necklaces can add a unique accent to your wardrobe. And, of course, remember about the hairstyle! Aren’t you bored with that ponytail? Try something new - you can do whatever you want. Changing hairstyles, coloring your hair, even cutting - there are so many tutorials online, and you can do it even without leaving the house. Just remember to use appropriate scissors: you can find them online, like, for example, Scissor Tech professional hairdressing shears, or visit your local hairdresser’s store.

Start Caring About Yourself

The pandemic is the perfect time to take control of your mental and physical health. Going to the doctor/therapist when you need it is one thing; taking care of yourself on a daily basis is another. Here’s a list of things you can change in your life to feel better.


  • Get a skincare routine with appropriate cosmetics - make sure you don’t use anything because it’s cheap/promoted/you like the package.
  • Have some rest every day - even if it’s just an hour for coffee and a book.
  • Work out. You can find online classes. Or get a dog, if you’re able to take care of it - and walk it daily.
  • Meditate or do yoga.
  • Keep a journal and write down everything you feel and think.
  • Remember to talk to your friends and family.


And don’t hesitate to seek help if you need it: the pandemic has been hard on everyone, it’s not shameful to see a doctor or a therapist.

Do Something You’ve Always Wanted

The world will never be the same after this pandemic - why do you have to be? Life can be amazing, and you can find something you like - but you need to look for it first. Change a part of your life, and start doing something you’ve always wanted. 


Take a course on ukulele playing, here are tabs and chords for beginners. Get a pet. Leave that boring job that you don’t like and find something fascinating. Visit Japan or Russia. Go on a hiking trip. Get married - or divorced if your marriage is making you miserable! Write a book, a song, a poem. Enter a singing contest, or create a TikTok video, or start a blog. 


Whatever you do, do it for yourself. Make sure to enjoy it, and your life will change for the better.

A Final Note

The world is changing, and people are too. So, why not take control of your life in 2021 and make sure this year will be amazing? You don’t have to change rapidly; you don’t have to do anything you’re not comfortable with. But trying something new can get you out of a rut and make you feel better - mentally and physically - even if it’s just a  new haircut.


So go for it. Change your wardrobe, clothes, cosmetics. Change your lifestyle and start taking care of yourself. Do something you’ve always dreamed about. Life will never be the same - but it can be incredible nevertheless.
