2013 just started and many people are starting a New Year’s resolution? How about you? Have you started a 2013 resolution? Do you need any ideas?
Many resolutions are popular year after year and some people will be looking to reach their goals in 2013. According to the www.usa.gov site, the most popular resolutions in the United States are:
- Quit smoking
- Drink less alcohol
- Eat healthy food
- Get a better education
- Get a better job
- Get fit
- Lose weight
- Manage Debt
- Manage Stress
- Save money
- Take a trip
- Volunteer to help others
If you need help to get started or if you are not sure what to take as a New Year resolution, a few things can be helpful.
Find a partner: sometimes people can benefit from doing activities together. Many people find easier to lose weight or quit smoking along with a friend.
Start over: OK, you have broken your resolution but it doesn’t mean you have to quit. Restarting can put you back on the right track and may be a valuable lesson in accomplishing your goal.
Having more than one resolution: nothing wrong with that. You can “save money” to “take a trip”, you can “eat healthy” to “lose weight”, or you can “get a better education” to “get a better job”. You may find it helpful to plan your resolutions’ in short term and long term. So, whether you are making a New Year’s resolution or not, be positive, help your friends and family reach their goals in 2013.
