Spend More Time with Family and Friends
Family and friends are arguably the most important parts of your life, which is why most people voted this resolution as their number one priority. Many people feel incomplete without these important people. Often times we get so bogged down with work and other life occurrences that we unintentionally neglect the ones we care about most. So next year, plan different outings, get-togethers, parties, hang out sessions, and enjoy the precious time with family and friends. The best times of our lives are spent with those we love the most, so for 2014 make sure you make them a priority!
Stay Fit and Healthy
The consumption of fatty food products has continued to increase which stands in direct correlation with the rise in obesity. In this reality, many people feel that they need to go back to natural and healthy living. For these reasons, people want to focus on healthy eating habits and follow a dietary and workout plan. Incorporating a healthy, well-balanced diet along with a regular work out regiment will put you in the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
Coming in as the third most popular New Year’s resolution, quitting smoking, spurs people toward a healthier lifestyle. Your lungs are vital organs to the operation of the human body, so it only makes sense that you should take good care of them! There are many methods to quitting smoking: cold turkey, nicotine gum/patches, support group, etc. One of the best ways to fight the urge is to not buy cigarettes – it’s hard to smoke when you don’t have anything to smoke with.
