5 Goals to Replace Your New Year's Resolution

Every year come January 1st, we all make bold statements of resolution of how we hope to change some undesired traits. Often broken before the end of the first month, these resolutions are often unrealistic and difficult to maintain. If you find yourself struggling to stick with that New Year’s Resolution, here are some goals to work towards instead!


Try something new

This year, pick up a new hobby. If you have always wanted to try yoga and meditation, sign up for a class! If you haven’t done much traveling in your life, book a trip to visit a new city! Try some new things and maybe this will be the year that you find your new passion!




Make your bed each morning

This goal may seem little and obvious to some people, but many of us tend to rush out the door in the morning and skip this step. Starting out the day by making your bed, however, allows you to begin the day with a success. Then at the end of the day, no matter what goes on, you will come home to a neat space and feel much more relaxed.




Read a book that interests you

Head to a bookstore or browse on Amazon until you find a book with a plot that catches your attention. Check out one of the many celebrity book club recommendations. Pick one and read it start to finish. By doing so, you can easily accomplish a goal on your list and also brush up on your vocabulary in the process.




Learn to cook or bake your favorite treat

What is the food that you crave more than any other? Pizza? Chocolate cake? Whatever it is, find a recipe and master it. You can have fun with the process of trying different techniques and using your hands in the kitchen and then at the end of it all you will have a delicious goodie to enjoy.




Make plans and stick to them

This year try to make some plans and follow through with them. Whether this means making a plan to grab dinner with a friend and not bailing at the last minute or making a weekly workout plan and sticking with it, this will help you to feel organized.




If you find yourself becoming frustrated with your New Year’s Resolution, try incorporating some of our small goals into your life. By trying this, you can feel more productive and accomplished in your day to day life. Let’s make 2019 a great one!
