20 New Year's Resolutions Every. Single. Person Should Be Making

Buzz, Self

This coming year, your life is going to change for the BETTER.

It is FINALLY time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions for 2017 (what, what!).

I don’t know about you, but this year went incredibly fast for me and now I’m left thinking, “What’s next?” So many things happened in 2016 — some good, some bad, and some really bad — and now I am ready to say goodbye to this year FOREVER.

Thankfully, the start of a new year is exactly what so many of us need to wash off the stink of 2016 and look forward to 2017.

And with that come New Year’s resolutions. If you are anything like me, then New Year’s resolutions are just ways to trick yourself into thinking that you are going to change for the better (even if you never actually get off your butt and do them).

Whether that means getting into shape, quitting that bad habit, or being a happier person, a lot of people find that just saying they’re going to change is enough to make them feel better. But for those of us who actually want to stick to our resolutions, it can be a lot harder than we think it’s going to be — which is why so many people end up giving up on their resolutions early on.

Did you know that typically, only 8 percent of people actually SUCCEED at their resolutions?! Sad, I know ... but it's because it’s just so damn HARD.

That said, it isn’t impossible. And if you want to do something good for yourself, sometimes you just have to push yourself WAY outside your comfort zone and keep with it.

Believe it or not, you don’t have to go above and beyond with your New Year’s resolutions AT ALL. In fact, making your resolutions easier and more practical to achieve can help you do more throughout the year and make you feel like you accomplished more by the end of 2017 (and who doesn’t want that?!).

For all of you who can relate to the stress and expectations that come with New Year’s resolutions, we've created some of our own that will help put your mind at ease and maybe even give you a few reminders of what's REALLY important, because what good are resolutions if you don't change your life with them? Amirite?

Good luck, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Cheers to a kick-ass 2017!
