Happy New Year!

As we all know, the start of a new year is often a time of new beginnings, resolutions, and plans for starting new projects and activities. It’s also a time for saying goodbye to old habits and starting fresh.

"I love the new year!" says Lori Quick from the UNB Art Centre and a mother of two. "The idea of planning projects and activities for the whole year ahead is so exciting. It really is about a fresh slate and new possibilities. My family and I have already started a list!"

Every year, thousands of people make New Year's resolutions, hoping to spark positive change.

Quote by Mike Dooley

According to the website GoSkills, the 10 most common resolutions are:

  1. Exercise more
  2. Lose weight
  3. Get organized
  4. Live life to the fullest
  5. Save more money / spend less money
  6. Quit smoking
  7. Spend more time with family and friends
  8. Travel more
  9. Read more
  10. Learn a new skill or hobby

Here are some recommendations to help you achieve your goals:

  • Create a plan. Write it down.
  • Break a larger resolution down into smaller, more manageable, goals.
  • Ask a friend to set the same resolution and work toward it together.
  • Think outside the box and come up with resolutions that are meaningful to you.
  • Missed a goal? Be kind to yourself and keep trying.
