Detail

Make S.M.A.R.T Resolutions:

It is all to common to make New Year’s resolutions that are unhealthy or not sustainable in the long run. Make it a SMART one. It should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. For example, one popular resolution goal is to get physically active or increase fitness. The smart goal would be: Taking a walk or going to the gym 5 times a week to keep up with the kids and will go before going to work. Here are some more examples:

  • To improve my mental health and avoid “doom scrolling”, I am going to limit my social media use to 30 minutes daily and have a timer to keep me accountable.
  • I will build an emergency fund of $1,200 by saving $100 each month for the new year and reduce takeout and more at-home meals.
