The top five resolutions for 2017

It’s the start of a new year and that means trying to stay resolute with your resolutions. You may have set some steep goals for yourself when the clock struck 12 am on Jan 1st and they are always the ones that are easiest to break. Who knows, you may have already broken them. The good news is, it’s never too late to make a change in your life – just make your goals achievable and take it one step at a time.

1. Life / Self Improvements

Let’s say you want to tidy your house, to get started… start in one room and finish that one room – avoid stopping half way and moving on to the next room. Think about what you need, to tidy up the space; do you need another wardrobe, draws or dressing table? Or do you need to sell some items to free up space? Either way, just take a step back and plan what you’d like to achieve.

2. Lose Weight / Healthier Eating

The same can be for your health if your resolution is to get fit and live healthy – don’t start by running a marathon. Map out a plan to take it one day at a time and how you want to see yourself in three months. Once you’ve made the three-month mark, aim for the next three months and so on. Kick start healthier eating with blending a smoothie a day. It may also help to find a personal trainer to get you started and help with motivation.

3. Make Better Financial Decisions

This is a big one, for some it’s easy to see what we’ve spent and if you’re in the same boat as me, hard to see what you’ve saved. You could make money on Gumtree, by buying and selling your unwanted goods. Also, a quick way to save money is to save 10% of your weekly/monthly income. From there you can start a savings account or invest your money.

4. Spend Quality Time with Family and Friends

Life is busy and things get in the way of day to day lives. So, it’s easy to lose track of time and not spend quality moments with family and friends. This could be your year to be the person that’s always there for your loved ones, all it takes is a few phone calls and maybe a BBQ or two. Have people over to watch a good flick or just a nice cuppa.

5. Be Adventurous

Explore Australia, explore the magnificent rain forests, beaches and mountain ranges! Be free in 2017, aim to get away one weekend each month, so you’re not stuck in groundhog day. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
