5 Things to Help Fulfill Your New Year’s Resolutions


By Kylie Ora Lobell

At the start of each year, everyone know it’s time to start formulating New Year’s resolutions. If you want to lose weight, become healthier by keeping a food log, learn a new skill, or simply relax, you need help. These items will help you accomplish your New Year’s resolutions, as well as sustain them for years to come.

Get Fit

Healthy eating isn’t possible if you’re constantly going out to restaurants and getting takeout. Instead, you should use the tools in your kitchen to create delicious food that is good for you. With a food processor, you can easily chop veggies and make dips like salsa, hummus, and guacamole. If you’re worried about the clean-up, don’t be. Food processors’ bowls and lids are dishwasher-safe. Even though you’re eating healthy, make sure you record all of your intake in a food log.

The truth is, you’re not going to lose weight just by eating better. You also needed to exercise. But are lots of ways to do this, and some are really fun. One way is to start taking exercise classes. Once you start looking, you’ll see that there are different types for everyone—no matter your fitness level. Or you can try it on your own, but make sure you have the right gear. Exercising outdoors—maybe by taking up snowshoeing in the winter or hiking in the spring—is a great way to get fit, enjoy some fun in the sun, and cultivate a new hobby at the same time.

Learn a New Skill

In addition to getting in shape, you’ve always wanted to become an expert dancer. Why not take the time in 2016 to fulfill these New Year’s resolutions? Sign up for tango classes with a friend or significant other and burn calories while having a blast. You’ll be sure to impress at every wedding, office party, and get-together you attend. You can check out deals sites like LivingSocial to see what’s going on in your neck of the woods—maybe this’ll be the year you learn to sew, make sushi, or fix a car.

Be Less Stressed

Did you know that social interaction has the power to make you feel more relaxed? This winter, gather around the fire with your friends and family, enjoy some hot cocoa, and chat about your day.

Speaking of time to relax, when you’re on the go or at work, you don’t want to be constantly checking your phone. Take the stress out of your every day with smart jewelry that connects to your phone and changes colors depending on what’s happening. It’ll flash when you get an email, a phone call, a text, or activity on your social media accounts. Now is the time to start achieving your goals and dreams!
