Revising Your Top New Year’s Resolutions
New Year is one of the most celebrated events, not just because it is the welcoming of another year, but also because it’s all about new beginnings. People love the idea of starting fresh, that’s why writing a New Year’s resolution has become a tradition. The thing with New Year goal setting is that, more than half of our list never made it halfway throughout the year.
Here are some things that are commonly listed down that you should start revising to give it a better chance of reaching the finish line:
- Be fit. Get rid of the “I will start on Monday” attitude because guess what, you’ll never start it on Monday. If you really want to be fit, you have to make a fitness plan. Start by assessing what exercise best fits your lifestyle and physical condition. Start from there, and write what possible sports or exercises you can get yourself involved with so you will know what to prepare for.
- Save up money. After all your holiday shopping, you are back to zero. Don’t just tell yourself that you’ll save up next time. Make a budget plan so you can really save money consistently. Be strict in sticking to your budget, but don’t go overboard and don’t be stingy. You can still allot a budget for some splurging, but don’t make it a habit. Allow yourself to splurge only if you need to reward yourself for something.
- Start a healthy lifestyle. You should have a healthy lifestyle whether it’s New Year or not. You should stop putting this on your resolution and start writing a diet plan. From time to time, schedule yourself for detox and cleansing to help you tame your cravings for unhealthy food.
- Be productive. This is too general to include in your list. You have to be organized to keep a balance to your time management. Assess yourself on what you need to improve with in terms of your character and attitude towards things, like being punctual, honesty to your work, and showing excellence. In this way, you can really say that you’ve been productive because you’re wiser with how you handle yourself.
- Try a new hobby. It’s time to figure out what you really love to do. Find out what best interests you and never stop until you find it. Once you’ve found it, never stop growing and improving. You’ll be surprised with where new learning can take you. Don’t be afraid of trying something new because it will allow you to expand and mature in the long run.
Fulfilling your New Year’s Resolutions

Have concrete plans so you can have a guide on what you should do next and it doesn’t mean you’ll stop being spontaneous. Set goals but allow yourself to walk on unfamiliar roads. Challenge yourself everyday and you’ll surely end to a successful year.
