7 New Year's Resolutions & How to Keep Them

January 8, 2018 Baltimore, MD, USA

Once upon a time, this blog began as re•solve, a nod to it's January beginnings. While I don't believe in resolutions, per se (I didn't set one this year), I do believe in putting your mind and efforts to anything you want to achieve at any time.

Of course, I know plenty of people have resolutions, and we're about a week in now. How's it going? I found 7 of the most common resolutions courtesy of NBC, and I've got some recommendations to help you stick to them!

1. Get Healthy
I believe the best way to accomplish your goals is to make them specific, manageable ones. In this case, I have recommendations for both nutrition and exercise.

2. Get Organized 
  • Tackle paper waste: keep what you need together in this expanding file, and securely eliminate what you don't with this shredder.
  • Navigate your dresser drawers more easily with some organizing bins.
  • Pro tip: use those leftover Amazon boxes to declutter and donate anything you don't need to a local Goodwill via Give Back Box. It's tax-deductible!

3. Live Life to the Fullest

4. Learn New Hobbies
  • Take advantage of Groupon for deals on events and classes near you.
  • Get some practice (and cash!) freelancing your newfound skills on Fiverr.

5. Spend Less/Save More

6. Travel
  • Pack like a pro with these cubes.
  • Keep your passport and pertinent documents/cards together and secure with this RFID travel wallet.

7. Read More

  • Switch to e-books with a Kindle and you'll be completing this resolution as well as #2!
  • If you prefer physical books, reduce cost and waste by utilizing your local library and making sure you have a reliable light and glasses for reading if needed.

What have you resolved to accomplish in 2018? I'd love to hear about your progress in the comments!

  1. I SO need to get organized.... that's my biggest resolution. I started to purge my makeup last year and this year I'm going at it big time!

  2. I love your resolutions! I'm trying to learn a new language this year.

  3. Those are all awesome resolutions and realistic ones too!

  4. Great, realistic resolutions! We are looking to better our family unit and find more activities to get us out more this year! Simple, but easily attainable

  5. I really need to figure out an organization system that works for me.
