New Year's Resolution Ideas

An open notebook with a blank list that says "New Year's Resolutions

Do you have any resolutions written down for the new year? If you don’t, look no further than this week’s Wildwood Towers blog. In this week’s post, we’ve got a few suggestions of New Year’s Resolutions that you can commit to in order to make some positive changes in your life.

Exercise

The most common resolutions revolve around exercise. Many people evaluate their lives after the holidays (having gained a little weight from the heavy eating…) and resolve to get healthy. Getting exercise and being healthy are great resolutions, but it can be easy to focus wholly on the arbitrary aspect of weight. We recommend setting goals that aren’t about losing a specified amount of weight, rather, focus on goals that help you to create lasting habits of exercise and healthy living.

Learning

You can use the new year as an opportunity to learn something new. Resolve to learn how to play the guitar, read a new book, or learn a new language! The possibilities are endless as long as you have the resources. Since resolutions are about making positive changes in your life,  make sure that you’re getting the most out of committing to complete something.

Relationships

Many resolutions are inwardly focused, but there are plenty of great ways to have a positive impact on others. It’s natural to lose contact with friends or reduce the amount of time spent with them when you get busy, but these relationships can and should be salvaged. Resolve to be a better friend! Go out of your way to text or call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while, or make it a priority to spend time with them every other week. Regardless of what you do, take a vested interest in their life and be present in your relationship with them.
