New Year’s Resolutions Can Benefit More Than Just You
Guest post by Mila Johnson
The new year is approaching fast and many of us vow to improve ourselves year after year. Some of us may resolve to improve our personal finances or spend more time with our families while others select personal goals that involve organizing spaces within the home or turning the television off to read a book. According to WebMD, losing weight is among the top resolutions made on a yearly basis along with better overall fitness and diet.
The Weight Loss Resolution
In order to begin your weight loss resolution, you will want to begin a workout program. Therefore, you will need a motivating exercise outfit and while several of your local department stores will certainly have the stretchy material that you require, using a Kohl’s promo code will help you save money. This may help you achieve another common New Year’s resolution, which is debt elimination.
If this is the first time you’ve exercised in a while, then remember to begin slowly and focus on consistency. Also, it’s easy to be motivated initially and overexert yourself causing unnecessary pain or injuries, so be cautious with your out of shape body.
Keep an eye on your diet. You don’t have to implement a strict calorie regime, but reduce your portion sizes and add healthy food choices. Keep going and before you know it, next year will arrive and there’ll be a smaller you.
The Home Organization Resolution
After the reality show “Hoarders” appeared on the air, organizing and cleaning companies surely saw a profit increase. If you’ve decided to tidy your living space during the new year, then planning an organizing schedule will help you manage this. Consider your typical method for cleaning and then add to it. For example, if your basement is in desperate need of straightening up, then spending an extra 10 minutes organizing the basement after your regular cleaning is finished will get the job done. It may take you a month or so, but your previously cluttered space will tidy up fast using this method.
When we make resolutions, we generally focus on negative factors in our lives as opposed to positive aspects. Let’s try for a balanced year during 2012 and select self-improvement items that help us better ourselves in addition to increasing elements in our lives that we already do well. For example, most of us give to charitable causes during the year, so maybe we could increase our contributions while we decrease our waistlines along with our clutter. How do you intend to begin the new year?
