New Year’s Resolutions don’t always have to be a drag.
You shouldn’t enter the New Year full of dread and anxiety—it should be full of hope and excitement.
If vowing to lose weight this year is just not getting you excited for 2016, it’s time to rethink resolutions.
Why not make a New Year’s resolution that is fun?
If you’re looking to shake up your resolutions, we thought up some awesome (and attainable) ideas.
Plan a weekly date night
Want to keep that spark alive with your significant other for 2016? Make it a priority to have a date night each week. Sound expensive? It doesn’t have to be!
Some date nights can be simply putting your phones away, turning off the TV, lighting some candles, and enjoying dinner together at home.
Enjoy time with friends
With all the commitments of everyday life, it’s easy to let friendships take a back seat. However, friends are such important relationships to maintain—they help you relax and laugh and support you in tough times. Suggest to your friends that your group start a monthly girls’ night!
Plan an outdoor activity each week
Trying to disconnect more from technology this year? Plan an outdoor activity once a week. Fresh air and enjoying the outdoors can be incredibly beneficial for our health. Here are some ideas:
- Neighborhood walk
- Outdoor picnic
- Bike ride
- Mini golf
- Visiting local parks
Play with your kids
As adults, sometimes we forget just how much fun participating in kid-centric activities actually is! Get lost in your kid’s imaginary world, don’t worry about being messy during craft time, and climb in that tunnel slide with him or her!
Make a froyo bar
Make a homemade “froyo” bar once a week! Decide on a certain night of the week, and make it a tradition. Set up a different frozen yogurt flavors and toppings. What a yummy resolution!
Create a movie bucket list
Create a movie bucket list of all the films you’ve been meaning to watch. Better yet—get your friends involved and create the ultimate movie list.
Plan a trip
Make an effort to plan that trip you’ve always wanted to go on. Start saving, buy travel books, book your tickets, and make hotel reservations. Bon voyage!
