Each year we say we’ll start doing this, or stop doing that. But more often than not our big plans get dashed sometime in January. Here are some of the more commonly recited new years resolutions that pop up in late December, as well as others that are more likely to make it through the 365 days and really improve your life.
This is one New Year’s goal that doesn’t produce many success stories. Why? It’s too vague. You can’t quickly quantify “being healthier” so there’s no way to hold yourself accountable later. Choose something you can measure more easily that falls under the healthy umbrella.
Stop Eating Fast Food
It seems like each year we learn more about just how bad fast food is for the body. If you’ve resolved to lose weight or get a six pack, you’ll definitely want to drop the fast food habit cold turkey. It can be hard because all of the fat, sugars, and chemical additives make it darn near addictive.
Quit Drinking (Or At Least Cut Back)
Most people are aware of the damaging effects of drinking alcohol, especially binge drinking, but we do it anyway. Even cutting back on how often you drink, or how much you drink in one sitting can have benefits to your body and brain.
Detox the Body
If you’ve been eating the wrong foods, not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water, drinking alcohol, or smoking, your body would probably benefit greatly from a detox program. These can be whole body, or you can focus on a specific organ. Detox with NoniJuice, Lemon + Honey + Ginger Juice, PineApple Juice, Celery, Apricot.
Get More Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your well-being, but many of us stay up into the wee hours, and wake up before we’re fully rested. Try following the circadian rhythm by getting to bed early and waking up early. You’ll notice a big improvement right away.
Stop Drinking Soda
With its High Fructose Corn Syrup, corrosive acid, and empty calories, these beverages aren’t doing much for you, and can have a detrimental effect on your body. Some people start losing weight just be removing sodas as a drink option.
Plan a Budget
Setting and sticking to a budget doesn’t have to be drudgery, and it doesn’t mean you have to shut down the kid inside you. You can still do the things you love, and have a great life, while still keeping track of your expenses and living within your means, even establishing a savings account and making investments.
Have More Family Fun Times
With so many board games to choose from, how can you go wrong? Try Phase 10, Sequence, or the old standby of Monopoly for some serious family bonding.
Get a Better Job
Get a job with better pay and employee friendly company.
Buy or Sell a House
This can be one of the biggest purchases you’ll make in life, so it might not be a good idea to put the pressure of a New Year’s resolution behind it. You don’t want to rush a decision like this for the sake of completing a goal, but if the process has been dragging this may be a good way to put in on the front burner.
You could always be a little greener, so find out what sort of recycling programs your city has and try your best to do your part.
With Warm Wishes
Have a Great Year 2016 A Head.
