January 2024 is almost to a close…Have you made any New Year Resolutions? Maybe you have and already are dreading completing them. Or perhaps you meant to create some and haven’t gotten around to it yet. No matter your reasons, there is still plenty of time to adjust and create new ones! Below are a few New Year’s resolutions you can start any time of the year. For further inspiration, check out my post from last year!
Read at least three books this year
Aside from improving your memory, there are several other benefits to reading. Three books a year equates to one book every four months. Whether it’s a steamy romance novel, biography of your favorite celebrity, or Harry Potter novel, the possibilities are endless. And no, it doesn’t have to be a physical book. Feel free to read on your Kindle!
Create & Automate A Savings Goal
Nothing is more satisfying to me than creating a money goal and seeing the fruits of my labor at the end of the year. Savings and not touching it until the end of year can take discipline. Automating your savings can help you “set it and forget it” if you will. You don’t have to break budget. Create a goal that attainable, automate it, and leave it alone. Enjoy it at the end of the year or keep growing on your goal!
Spend more quality time with family
Spending more quality time with family is one of my favorite new year’s resolutions you can start any time of the year. The key here is QUALITY TIME. We may spend a lot of time with our family but how much of it is quality time? This year make it a point to create time that is purposeful, intentional, and meaningful. Consider a Sunday dinner without phones or TV. Maybe a fun game night where everyone is involved. No matter what you decide to do, keep quality over quantity in mind.
Donate to a cause that’s meaningful to you
You can donate your time, money, resources, advice, etc. The possibilities of what is means to you to donate are endless. Not sure of a cause to donate to? Make a list of things that are meaningful to you. Passionate about art? Consider donating supplies to a local art class. Feel strongly about supporting veterans? Donate your time at your local VA Hospital or clinic. Your donation can never be too big or small.
