The decorations are down, presents are put away and you’re now back to your regular routines. But nothing is regular about the start of a new year! While ringing in the new year, we were also embracing a new opportunity and all the positive energy that goes along with a new beginning.
2018 brings with it a chance for a fresh start. Make the most of it by setting some New Year’s resolutions for yourself! Our list below captures some of the most popular resolutions for the new year.
Health and Fitness
After enjoying the many treats and beverages during the holiday season, many of us find health and fitness a priority in the new year.
Choosing more heart-healthy foods, deciding to cook at home instead of eating out at a restaurant, and preparing freezer meals to be used on those busy nights are some easy ways to start eating better.
Whether it’s getting back on track with a previous exercise schedule or embarking on a new one – the new year is a great time to begin enjoying a more active lifestyle, too.
The holiday season and its associated gift buying can easily make a dent in your wallet! The new year is a great time to start watching your spending more closely.
The winter months are a time that many of us envelop a type of hibernation in our own homes. This makes easier to save money once again. Focus on spending less, and saving more! Enjoy seeing your savings account start accumulating again.
Spending some time figuring out what makes you happiest is a great place to start when planning your new year’s goals.
It’s impossible to completely eliminate stress from your life, but it is possible to help reduce your stress level. Less stress normally leads to more happiness.
For example, maybe you can start turning down some invitations with friends instead of packing all your free time with obligations. Spend more time doing what you want to do instead.
Spending More Time with Family
Life gets busy, and it can sometimes seem like a complete blur! Scheduling a special time every week to truly enjoy being with family is a great way to fit more family time into your schedule.
For example, what about planning a movie night for every Friday night, and rotate the movie choice amongst family members?
Learn Something New
A new year offers a great time to try something you’ve always wanted to do!
Why not take that special interest class online, volunteer with a not-for-profit organization or finally take that road trip you’ve been dreaming of?!
