3 New Years Resolutions You Should Keep This Year

Happy New Year! It is January 2nd, 2019, which means you should have recovered from your hangover and now you can focus on what you want to happen this year.

We all make resolutions and rarely to do we all stick with them. This year that will all change. Below are the three resolutions I think you should make for 2019. To make things easier, I’ll even tell you how to conquer these resolutions so you end the year without Resolution regret.

Get in shape

Whether you join a gym or the MFit Membership (my online gym), find a way to make fitness a priority. Make goals for yourself. If you want to lose weight, join a program like my 4-Week Slim Down. If you want to gain muscle, talk to a trainer about how to safely do that. Your goals don’t have to be that big either. It is good to make small goals, so that the big goals don’t feel so overwhelming. If you want to run a marathon at the end of the year, focus on running for 10 minutes straight first! Getting in shape does more for you than change your appearance. Being healthy means you look good, you feel good and you have many more years to make Resolutions.

Focus on your mental health

Some resolutions I’ve made in the past include: sleep more, stress less, stop being so jealous, control my road rage, be less of a perfectionist… and so on. All of this relates back to mental health. Even more so than your physical health, you need to get your mind healthy this year. Last fall I read the book, Heal Your Drained Brain by Dr. Mike Dow. This book discusses all about how to handle stress, and as someone who has dealt with lots of anxiety in the past I found it extremely helpful. Whether or not you read this book or one of the hundreds of other self-help books in the world, find a way to improve your mind this year.

Learn a new language

Yes, learning a new language can help with your communication skills and will look good on your resume, but that is not why I think you should keep this resolution. With the world so divided right now, we all need to play a part, big or small, in bringing everyone together. It is a new year, and I think we should all start it united! With apps like Duolingo and websites like Rosetta Stone, there are plenty of ways to learn a new language now! Get to it and find new people to connect with all over the world.
