The key to achieving your goals is to firstly, set realistic ones and secondly, to take things one day at a time. So, we’re bringing you a list of simple and doable New Year’s resolutions that will leave you feeling stronger, healthier and happier in the new year. Good luck!

Lose Weight

Getting in shape is one of the most common NYE resolutions around the world. It’s simple to start a diet and exercise program, the hard part is sticking to it, so choose something that you will enjoy doing, and help yourself by using apps and technological devices.

Eat Healthier Food

This ties in with the previous resolution, but even skinny people may be eating unhealthy food. Think about how and why you eat as well as what you eat, and check the fat, salt, sugar and calorie content of what you are putting in your mouth.

Meet New People

Meeting new people can be of benefit to your social life, but can also help with networking. Sports clubs and hobby clubs are great places to go and meet new, like-minded people, i.e. if you don’t enjoy going to clubs and bars.

Earn More Money

Even if you don’t want to change your job, you can always earn more money. Whether by taking on freelance work or an extra part-time job, you can start earning additional cash.

Change Your Job

If you feel stuck in a rut professionally, you may be thinking about changing your job or even taking on something completely different. Have a real think about what you want to do with your life, and then research exactly what you need to do to make that a reality.

Give Up Smoking

Smoking is not only bad for your health and that of people around you but it’s bad for your wallet too. If you want to stop, look at smoking cessation groups and devices such as nicotine patches and e-cigs to help you beat the initial cravings. If you want to stay off, you will need to replace smoking with something else, so this is the best time to get into sports or a hobby.

Get More Sleep

Everybody uses electronic devices such as mobile phones, iPads and computers, but many don’t realize that the light they emit can stop you from getting a good night’s sleep. Try and put your phone down at least an hour before bedtime, and give your body and mind time to relax.
