Realistic New Year's Resolutions You Can Definitely Keep

Realistic New Year's Resolutions You Can Definitely Keep
It's that time of the year again. You're ready to turn over a new leaf and make drastic changes or perhaps do anything to actually conquer your resolutions - never mind all that. Here are some easy to follow resolutions that you can actually follow.

1) Resolve to not do something unrealistic 

If you're planning to make commitments such as quitting fizzy drinks entirely or going to the gym every single day, don't make such a drastic change. Start off by improving your lifestyle one step at a time - it is more likely that you will be able to stick to that than an over night lifestyle change.

2) Stay in touch

Feel like old friends or family have fallen by the wayside? It's good for yourself to reconnect with them. Research suggests people with strong social ties are happier and have a longer life expectancy than those don't.

3) Save money

Save money by making healthy lifestyle changes. For instance, carpool to work or eat at home rather than ordering take out. Save up and travel the world.

4) Get more sleep

A good night's rest can do wonders for your mood- and appearance. But sleep is more beneficial to your health than you might realise.

Take a nap and don't feel guilty about it.

5) Travel

Traveling makes you feel rejuvenated and replenished. A short get away can last a while, and traveling allows you to tap into life as an adventure without doing something too drastic.
