Happy New Year

1. Lose Weight

This is one of the most common resolutions. Many people want to lose weight. They may decide to go on a diet for the New Year or exercise instead.

2. Stop smoking

Many who smoke make quitting a priority as their New Year’s resolution. Many do not like to smoke and have been trying to quit for years. New Year’s can be a wonderful time to move ahead on this. You can also have a goal of stopping another addition such as drinking, drugs, gambling, etc.

3. Spend more time with the children

Many people wish that they did more with their kids. They might make a resolution of doing so, which can be beneficial to both them and their children.

4. Get a better job

A lot of people are not very happy with their jobs. They might just be staying stagnant in it, afraid to switch. A resolution might be to search for another job and to hopefully get one. You could also have as a resolution to do better in your current job or get a promotion.

5. Get out of debt

For those in debt (sadly a high number) you might want to make getting out of debt your resolution. Even if you are not in debt or you are so much so that you will not be able to get out of it this year, then your goal might be to do better with money and to not spend as much.

6. See or call your relatives more

A lot of us have relatives that we do not see or call enough. It might be your mother, your grandparents or someone else. You might make a resolution to keep in better contact with them.

7. Find that special someone

Many people who are single might make a resolution to do what is necessary to find someone. They may feel that they have not been successful but now is the time to try.

8. Do an accomplishment you have been putting off

Many of us have things we have been meaning to do. It might be learning another language, going on a special trip, learning to play an instrument, becoming a vegetarian or so forth. Whatever accomplishment you have been thinking about but just haven’t done can work as your resolution.

9. Help others

Some of us may list altruism as our resolution. It could be about giving to charity or volunteering. This is a great goal.
