New Year’s Resolutions That Are Fun!

In addition to trying to get healthier, why not try out some new, joyful hobbies?


Today’s guest blogger is Kaylin Kaupish, an editor at Angels on Earth

January 1 is fast approaching and so is the pressure to make our list of New Year’s resolutions. There are the big ones: go to the gym, eat healthier, spend less money, etc. Every year I do so well up until February. Then the motivation wears off, and I find myself making excuses. But it’s too cold out to go to the gym. I could snack on carrots, but I really want pimento cheese (I can thank my South Carolinian grandma for that addiction). I don’t have time to pack my lunch, so looks like I’ll be buying it again. So, I decided to try something new this year.

For each “tough” resolution, I added a “fun” one to the list. Something I want to do before the end of the year. Now my list includes: go hiking, try some new recipes and read more books. My long list of resolutions feels less daunting–and these fun resolutions will help me keep the harder ones. I need to be in shape to do the advanced hikes, so I better keep up with the gym. I’ll look for healthy recipes to try (sorry, pimento cheese). I’ll get my books from the library so I save a little money while I read. And with a little help from the angels, I’ll keep this up longer than February. Here’s to a productive and fun  new year!
