5 Ways to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Posted: January 31st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

What resolutions do you plan on BREAKING in 2011?

Don't forget and don't break your promises!

Why is it so hard to make and keep New Year’s resolutions each year? With the brand new decade just right around the corner, there is more reason than ever to hold onto those holiday promises and keep working toward the “You” you want to be. You would be surprised how easy it can be, just within your Auston Woods Apartment Home and Community. We’ve bundled a few of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions so you will feel twice as accomplished when you complete them.

  1. Quit a bad habit/Learn something new.
    Yes, I grouped these together because in a way they can all be helpful to each other. No matter what your nasty tendency may be, it’s nearly impossible to cut it from your life cold-turkey starting on 1/1/11. The best way is to wean yourself off of the habit while filling its place with something you’ve always wanted to learn to do. The learning process takes time to master as well, so as you’re breaking the bad habit, built new knowledge.
  2. Lose weight/get fit.
    Did you know you had a fully-stocked Fitness Center and pilates room just waiting for you to make this resolution? Take advantage of the New Year trend AND the conveniently located aerobics and weight machines at no extra cost. You also have a beautifully finished kitchen which you can fully-stock yourself with healthy alternatives to the holiday treats you were allowing yourself to enjoy in excess over the past few months.
  3. Spend more time with family/Be punctual.
    These are the ones I fall short of myself each year. As everyone is growing up and becoming more independent, it can be hard to coordinate family times that please everyone. What you can do is start a schedule for something as simple as dinner at the dining room table or a game night once a week. Write the dates down on a large, well-placed calendar so that everyone in the apartment (especially you) can see it. Keep track of other important dates in multiple colors and try to write times about 15-30 minutes early.
