25 Resolutions for 2016

Are you the type of person who never makes New Year’s resolutions for fear of not sticking to them? C’mon! It’s the start of a new year! What do you have to lose? It’s not about making a promise you can’t keep but rather working on something that might just improve your life. If you’re short on ideas, maybe these will inspire you...

Go back to school. If you only have a few credits left to get that diploma, why not go for it in 2016?

Give up a vice. If you’re enslaved by a vice, the time to lose that crutch is now!

Buy a bicycle. Cycling is a complete sport that virtually everyone can practice. It will also help you get back into shape in no time flat!

Resurrect an old passion. Did you used to love drawing or swimming? Why not bring more joy into your life by taking up this old hobby again?

Learn something new. Take a course on a subject that’s foreign to you!

Join a gym. You won’t get that perfect bubble butt by sitting on it!

Pay back a debt. Are you being dragged down by student loans? How about paying them down before getting that new iPhone!

Stop stressing. Tell yourself that stress is the enemy you will defeat in 2016 by doing something –anything–every day that will help you relax.

Volunteer. Nothing brings more happiness and satisfaction than helping others. Whether the cause is refugees, the homeless or the elderly, you will receive far more than you give by joining it.

Save. Simply arrange to have a set amount automatically transferred to your savings account so you won’t be tempted to spend it frivolously.

Eat more vegetables. Make sure every meal includes healthy greens!

Keep an agenda. It’s the best first step to a more organized life!

Hit your goal weight. If you’ve put on a few pounds, there’s no better time to make a few changes in order to get back to your ideal weight.

Spend more time with family. In the hustle and bustle of life, time spent with family often gets overlooked even though we say they are the most important thing. Why not let 2016 be the year where you make them your priority again?

Walk your dog at least ½ hour per day. Speaking of family, have you been neglecting your best friend? How about showing your love with regular exercise?

Spice up your relationship. Let’s not forget about your better half either! Why not show your love with the occasional special night that’s all about him?

Adopt a pet. If you’re thinking of getting a cat or dog, don’t buy one from a pet shop. Go to the shelter and save a life!

Be open to love. If you’ve been single for a long time and you’re happy, great, but keep your heart open just the same. You never know what unexpected happiness might come your way.

Keep your house clean. A house isn’t a home unless you keep it clean. Your home is a reflection of who you are, so make it an oasis of beauty and peace.

Walk to work. If your office isn’t that far, why not walk to work? It’s a great way to save on gas and to stay in shape.

See the glass as half full. When negative thoughts intrude, be grateful for the blessings in your life. Not only will it lift your mood but you’ll attract even more!

Learn a new language. Anyone can learn a language these days. You can take a class, hire a tutor, or use modern methods like language Apps!

Travel. Life is short. Take every minute of vacation time you’re entitled to and go somewhere you’ve never been to before. You deserve it!

Read the newspaper. Stuck in a social media bubble? How about reading a newspaper (even a digital one)? It’s the best way to stay on top of what’s really going on in our world, something that every responsible citizen should do.

Be on time. Being chronically late is not only disrespectful but a form of arrogance that tells people that your time is more valuable than theirs. If you’re always late, put an end to this bad habit by making it a point to leave earlier.
