5 Ways to Rethink to Your Resolutions

We’re over a month into the New Year and many people are off and running on their resolutions…literally. Many people take the start of the new year to lose weight and exercise more. In fact, statistics show that losing weight and eating healthier are the top resolutions year after year. If you go to the gym in January, chances are you’ll see an influx of new faces. The big question is, how many will still be there six months down the road?

Crickets. The gym crowds have already started to thin.

That’s because many of us tend to fall off the weight loss wagon and the resolution wagon altogether. Either we give up or lose interest. Whatever the case, wouldn’t it be nice to make a resolution you can actually stick with all year long and beyond? Although the year has already started, it’s not too late to make a resolution. In fact, it might be easier to stick to a resolution now that we are back into a routine and are out of that post-holiday haze that makes January resolutions so jarring. Here are five resolutions unrelated to weight loss to consider as you walk on the treadmill or open the door to the gym now that the crowds are gone:

  1. Treat Yourself Once a Month. We all deserve to be treated well. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you, take the lead. Vow to treat yourself to one monthly “luxury”. Maybe it’s a manicure or a new shirt. Perhaps it’s a pair of shoes. Whatever the case, treat yourself because you deserve it. Add this as an incentive to your weight loss resolution.
  2. Get Organized. This is one resolution I’m totally onboard with this year. Getting organized doesn’t simply mean you just buy a new planner and write down everything you want to accomplish on a weekly basis (although I have done that). This means going through closets and junk drawers in your house and de-cluttering. Clean out toy bins. Do all the organizing you’ve been putting off. Chances are you’ll find a lot of things you don’t need. This is the perfect time to save them for a tag sale, bring them to a consignment shop, or donate them. Sound too overwhelming start with one drawer this weekend.  You get your house clean and make a quick buck or help the less fortunate at the same time. Sounds like a win-win to me.
  3. Make Time for People. “I would have called you, but I just ran out of time.” “I couldn’t make it over because I had to (fill in the blank).” It seems as though we’re always too busy to make time for people in our lives. We’ll send them a text or Facebook message, but our lives are much too complicated for some old fashioned face-to-face time. That’s why you should make a resolution to make more time for the people who matter most in your life. Life changes in an instant. We never know what’s going to happen. That’s why it’s vital to spend time with people now.
  4. Say No. If you have no time for the people and things that matter it could be due to the fact that you can never say no to other things. You don’t have to take your child to every classmate’s birthday party. It’s okay to say no every now and then. You don’t have to attend your co-worker’s mother’s Pampered Chef party. It’s okay to say no. Once you start saying no you’ll be amazed at how much more free time you have and how liberated you feel. Bonus: All that practice saying ‘no’ might help you say ‘no’ to the breadbasket or a 4pm cookie.
  5. Cut Back on Social Media. We are a phone-loving, social media obsessed society. This year, make a conscience effort to cut back on social media. This is not to say you have to go dark, but we could all use a little less “Face” time if you get my drift. You could use your freed-up time to get organized or connect with people the old fashioned way. It’s a great way to keep two resolutions at once.

Make 2017 the year of a better you and a better life. There are plenty of resolutions to make that don’t involve the scale. Find one that has real meaning to you and stick with it.
