Family Resolution Ideas
December 26, 2019 | by amanda ryan
At the beginning of each year, we sit around and think about what we need to improve on. This improvement translates to a “New Year’s Resolution.”
Maybe we want to work off some of that holiday weight that we gained, or maybe we want to be a little more giving in the new year. Coming up with a New Year’s resolution for yourself is great, but have you ever thought about creating some for your whole family?
There are many things that each family could work a little bit on. Nobody’s perfect, right?
As a family, consider brainstorming some areas you could all improve in. From there, create one or multiple resolutions for the new year.
If you need some help coming up with resolutions, here are 10 popular ideas…
- Give back to the community more by volunteering or donating to local nonprofit organizations regularly
- Eat more vegetables
- Try to fit more physical activity into your day in the form of a family walk
- Give each other at least one compliment every day
- Complete 1 act of kindness per day
- Have a “family night” in which everyone does an activity as a family at least one day per month
- Try to practice organization and cleanliness more by sorting through and donating the things you don’t need
- Try to practice better spending habits by saving more and spending less
- Invest in some recycling bins and begin recycling more
- Read at least 1 book every month
If you’re looking to improve this year, the best place to start is with your family, or your support system. If you can get everyone on a track to their best selves, your family will only grow stronger.
Once you’ve decided on the resolution you want to work on, create a plan to make sure the goal will be attainable.
Good luck, and happy choosing!
