New Year’s is days away and I’m sure your thoughts have already turned to what your resolutions will be. Most people make plans and goals for the coming year, even though they know they will break them. Here’s to the top 10 New Year’s resolutions and ways you can have a fighting chance of keeping them.
1. Stop Eating Out As Much
Picking up carry out doesn’t count does it? As long as you don’t eat it at the restaurant, then it isn’t technically eating out, right? If that is the case, you might have a fighting chance at this one.
2. Lose 10 Pounds
Let’s just hope you get the flu to help you out with this one. As long as you see that scale dip down 10 pounds for a day, I’d say goal met. Time to organize a flu party.
3. Save More Money
Does this mean actual money in the bank? Cuz if not, I am pretty sure you can catch some great after Christmas sales. You’d likely be able to save up to 70% on all kinds of items.
4. Stop Yelling at the Kids as Much
I’m envisioning you sending your kids on more overnights to Grandma’s to make this one happen.
5. Drink Less (Insert drink of choice)
Again, I think sending the kids on overnights to Grandma’s is the key to this one as well. That goes for alcohol and coffee.
6. Stop Bad Habits
Picking your nose is a bad habit. If you haven’t done that since 3rd grade, then I’d say you will probably keep this resolution.
7. Get More Exercise
Walking from your desk to the coffee pot for a re-fill is absolutely exercise. I recommend you do that several times a day.
8. Learn How to do Something New
With Youtube, you don’t even have to get off your couch to learn how to do something new. All you need to do is carve out some serious time to watch video tutorials.
9. Take a Trip to Someplace New
Make sure you are standing in line at the new restaurant they are opening up down the street. That way you can scratch this one off your list pretty quick.
10. Get More Rest at Night
I’m sticking with more overnights for the kids at Grandma’s house.
These are some of the top New Year’s Resolutions people love to make. Thanks to me, you now have some real ideas of how to scratch each one off your list. You’re welcome.
