#Fact. More than 80% of people who make New Year’s resolutions fail to keep them. This is because people often resolve goals that are just impossible to keep.
Anyways, to help you become more successful with your plans for the New Year, here are 7 New Year’s Resolutions That You Can Actually Keep.
People often resolve to “read more,” but this is a very broad and vague term. It is better to set several specific books that you would love to read during the next year.
Getting out of debts is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions people make. Instead of resolving to pay off your debts completely, resolve to create a reasonable and doable debt reduction plan and try to follow it.
3. Family time
Many people want to spend more time with their families. Be specific about this resolution, and try to set a particular number of days or family trips you will spend with your loved ones each week or month.
Have you ever wanted to try volunteering? There are hundreds of interesting volunteer programs these days, so pick the one that suits you most and put it on your New Year’s resolutions list.
5. Losing weight
Weight loss is an absolute New Year’s resolution evergreen. The key to success here is to break the resolution down to smaller and more realistic goals. If you resolve to lose 2 pounds each month, and you follow this plan, you will end up losing 24 pounds in year, which is still a great achievement.
6. Saving money
Set a specific, reasonable amount of money you want to (and can) save every week, or month and open a saving account to send the money to.
Stop making vague resolutions about donating and go ahead with at least one particular action working towards something you are interested in. You can choose anything from donating to a motherless babies home or to the displaced people.
8. Stop Worrying Over Things You Can’t Change
Make a New Year’s resolution to realize that everything happens for a reason, focus on what is within your control and what you can do to better yourself, and not to worry over those things you cannot change.
