New Year’s Resolution ideas that could actually change your life

Pick one and make next year your best year yet. Some of these new year’s resolutions are really hard things to do. But I say do the hard things! They are they things that need doing the most. (Just so you know, coming up with new year’s resolution ideas and then not following though with them won’t change anything, so make a plan to make sure you can follow through.)

GET HEALTHIER

Seriously, we could all do with some more healthy – no? The older we get the more obvious it becomes that we can’t treat our bodies the same as we did when we were younger and expect to feel… well, human.

I know I don’t sleep enough, and my diet is terrible. I FEEL like my diet is terrible. This is big on my list of things to address this year.

  • drink more water
  • eat less sugar
  • drink less alcohol
  • address your gut health
  • start exercising
  • quit smoking
  • take your vitamins
  • cook your own meals / less processed food
  • get more sleep
  • eat more veggies
  • lose weight

MAKE YOUR HOUSE A HOME

If you can’t come in and sit down in a clean, relaxing space at the end of a long day at work – there’s something wrong.

It’s frustrating that the only person that can make this happen for me is me.

This is the year to DO that. Maybe you want to:

  • finally conquer the clutter
  • organize your closet / paperwork / trouble spot
  • make better use of your time
  • get the laundry under control
  • start meal planning
  • make use of a cleaning schedule
  • get a decent bed time routine going
  • get the fridge / pantry / bathroom cabinet under control
  • go chemical free

GET YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER

Sometimes it feels like I am doing ok in the saving department, but when I really step back and look at what I spend, I know I can do better. There are big holes all over my budget.

You too? Maybe this is the year to:

  • deal with your debt
  • start a savings account & save regularly
  • start investing
  • get life insurance
  • increase your income
  • break your shopping habit
  • learn to budget
  • save enough to take a holiday / buy a car
  • learn to use credit cards properly

LIVE ON PURPOSE

When we look back at life, there isn’t a whole lot that we spend our time on that will really matter.

This is a terrifying thought to me, and one that spurs me on to consider new year’s resolutions like these:

  • read your bible regularly
  • make time for friends
  • improve your relationships
  • make family time a priority
  • start a hobby that you enjoy
  • get happy in your skin
  • address your mental hang ups
  • break your worst habit
  • volunteer your time
  • learn a totally new skill
  • give up busy
  • make a new friend
  • get out of bad relationships
  • travel
  • become a published author
  • start a family
  • buy a home
  • become a better person
  • learn to prioritize
  • learn to be content

Love & Sparkle,

Mackenzie
