4 Attainable Resolutions

It’s time to make good on those New Year’s resolutions. If you’re still deciding, take some inspiration from three of the most popular Google searches for self-improvement: eat healthy food, start working out, and get organized. Read on below for Mr. Sid’s suggestions on how to have a successful 2017.

Not Just Healthy, But Fit (and Stylish)

The fact that getting healthy tops the list is no shocker — it’s among the most tried and true New Year’s resolutions. Equinox is great, but you don’t have to have a gym membership in order to get fit and healthy. Want to eat better? Sign up for an organic meal delivery service. Don’t have time for the gym? Try downloading a fitness app for on-the-go tracking and customized workouts, or go for an invigorating run after work. However you choose to sweat, make sure you’re wearing the correct clothing to maximize your range of movement and minimize odors. Rhone’s innovative fabrics combine the finest materials with powerful odor fighting and moisture-wicking technology. Own the gear, own the year.

“Out With the Old, in With the New” Philosophy

Organize your living space from top to bottom as a way of practicing ‘out with the old and in with the new.’ Remove the clutter, clean out that junk drawer, and take stock of your shoe collection. Overwhelmed by your closet? Donate clothes to local charities and throw away things that are no longer needed. Perform seasonal audits on your wardrobe: Begin with your hanging clothes facing left. After wearing an item, re-hang facing right. Donate or sell any item still facing left–if you don’t wear it, you don’t need it. Your living space is a reflection of your life; if your home is in disarray and unorganized, more than likely your life will look the same.

Now Follow Through!

Not only should we not be too hard on ourselves when acting on our resolutions, we should also focus on making small, incremental changes to whatever it is we wish to improve. Utilizing these 4 steps will help you stay the path:

  1. Your goal should be specific. Make your goal concrete, and if necessary, break it down into smaller steps.
  2. Write your resolution(s) down and put it somewhere where you can see it on a daily basis. This will help you to stay focused.
  3. Hold yourself accountable by letting others know about your resolution.
  4. Reward yourself at each milestone; if you resolve to work out three times a week; reward yourself by getting a massage instead of reaching for those leftover holiday cookies.
