Our Top 3 New Year’s Resolutions Ideas

There’s something almost tangibly magical about New Year’s. You can see it on the faces of people you meet: friends, relatives, and even strangers. No matter what the previous year may have brought in terms of difficulties and challenges, the promise of a new year brings a smile to just about anyone’s face.

And New Year’s Day wouldn’t be complete without an accompanying set of New Year’s resolutions, would it? The first of January is a chance to make significant, positive changes in our lives–and it comes but once a year.

If you haven’t already decided on one (or more) New Year’s resolutions, we’ve put together a list of our top three favorites here. Take a look: one of them may be just the change you’re in need of for the coming year.

Move your body

Take a family walk for your New Year's Resolution

If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve probably tried (and failed) at the “join a gym” New Year’s resolution. Gyms see a huge spike in membership around the beginning of January, but only a small fraction of the people who sign up end up hanging on for more than a few months. So rather than setting an unachievable goal for yourself, simplify things a bit: just commit to moving more. This doesn’t have to be complicated. It could mean a standing desk at work, or an hour walk in the evenings with your significant other. You’ll feel better, and live longer: and keeping up with this resolution won’t feel impossible.

Read more books

Read more books for your New Year's Resolution

In the digital age, we often find ourselves reading in short bursts: social media posts, emails, and so on. Maybe we pull up a blog or an article, but only scan it before closing it. But reading books–full fledged, lengthy ones–can mean a whole host of benefits, including slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. You can select a book at random; or, better yet, set a goal for yourself: choose a theme for the next few months, and pick two or three books that fit the theme. Read them back to back. By the time you finish them, you’ll likely have found something else that you want to delve into. Set aside a little time at the end of the day or on your lunch break to make meaningful progress with what you’re reading. Finishing a book is a great feeling: why not treat yourself to the experience?

Simplify your homeowner’s insurance

Your homeowner’s insurance policy probably isn’t something you think about on a regular basis. But, take a moment to consider: are you familiar with the details of your policy? If something goes wrong with your home, will it be easy to remedy? Or will it turn into a major headache of an experience?
