Welcome 2016 with well written New Year’s resolutions. To make resolutions you will keep, begin by writing simple steps that show actions. You should be able to visualize how you would keep the resolution when you read the first word. Check out the five resolutions below for some clear examples. Simply reading the first words – walk, create, eat, cook, and celebrate – shows exactly what you would do to follow them. When you write your New Year’s resolutions in clear, actionable steps, you will be much more likely to follow those steps in the next year.
5 New Year’s Resolutions You Will Actually Keep
1.) Walk more.
Walking more is a practical resolution. Count the steps you walk to motivate you. Make small changes, like skipping an elevator ride. Take a quick walk around the block with your family before dinner. Instead of writing a resolution to go to the gym, write about an active lifestyle. This will be easy to keep because you will adjust your routine, instead of changing it completely.
2.) Create “Me” Time Moments.
Routinely give yourself special moments doing something meaningful to you. This resolution is practical because your “me” time moment can look different each day. Adjust your schedule as needed. One day you might get 10 extra minutes to yourself in the morning. Another day, you could schedule in an hour at the spa. Whatever “me” time looks like for you, it’s healthy for you, and you’ll enjoy it.
3.) Eat a good breakfast every morning.
This resolution is simple to keep, although tempting to overlook on busy mornings. Before rushing out the door, eat something to keep your energy up all day. With Modern Oats oatmeal, you can make a quick, nutritious breakfast. In a few minutes, you can prepare the oatmeal inside the cup with boiling water. The oatmeal comes in delicious flavors that include mango blackberry, 5 berry, apple walnut, and Goji blueberry. When I tried out the gift set, I thought the flavor was delicious, and I liked that preparation was so simple. Eating a better breakfast made me more energetic, so I didn’t have to rely on coffee to power through the day.
4.) Cook with delicious ingredients.
Make eating a special event. Prepare your food with the best ingredients you can get. The better quality your food is, the more satisfying eating will be. I learned this recently when I tried a Hello Fresh food box. Cooking with cheese imported from Denmark and fig jam from France made my cooking taste so much better! I wanted to cook more often since people liked the taste of the food, so I was more proud of my ability to cook. Treasure your time spent cooking so that you can savor the experience of eating – without overindulging.
5.) Celebrate your time with others.
There are only so many minutes in each day, so spend quality time with the people you love. In my home, a regular night in watching movies becomes a movie theatre night with a homemade movie poster. It’s simple, but it makes a huge difference in the attention we all give to each other. Make your time with others a celebration. The important moments spent together should be extraordinary, not ordinary.
