New Year’s Resolution Ideas That Could Change Your Life

New Year’s resolutions are a great way to make your life better and healthier. Yes, resolutions can be hard, and picking just one or two instead of like ten will help you focus and succeed.

I’ve heard nearly 45% of people in the U.S. make one or more resolutions for the new year. The top resolutions are:

  • Stop smoking
  • Exercise more
  • Weight loss
  • Save more money
  • Get their finances in order

Here’s my list of some great New Year’s resolutions.

Health Resolutions

I could use more sleep; I get up way too early and spend many days staying up late.

I’d like to renovate my house in the future and to do that I need to save more.

I spend too much money every month and don’t put it in my savings. Little things keep popping up, and I see something I need at the store or online.
