New Year's Resolution Guide

Why Set A New Year’s Resolution?

A New Year’s Resolution can take many forms which are generally aimed at self-improvement. New Year’s Resolutions are a great way to kick bad habits that have snuck into a persons every day routine. A resolution could be to take up a new hobby or start a new project, to cook more often, or to spend more quality time with friends and family. Many people choose a New Years Resolution that is focused on eating healthier and getting fitter, especially after all the Christmas indulgence.

Some New Year Resolution ideas to help you get healthier in mind and body:

  • Take up a new sport

  • Reduce processed foods and drinks in your diet

  • Adopt a vegetarian or vegan diet for one or more days a week
  • Cut back on red meat in the diet
  • Join a gym, fitness class, running or walking club
  • Commit to cooking at home at least 3 times a week

How To Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution

Many people start the new year with the best intention to keep their New Year Resolutions going but often give up over time. Here are some tips for making your New Year resolution stick:

  • Set a realistically achievable resolution. 
  • Make a resolution with a friend or family member so that you can support and encourage each other to stick to it.
  • Note down the reasons why you chose your New Year’s Resolution in your phone so that you can easily remind yourself and stay motivated. You could also write the reasons down and stick them up in a place where you’ll regularly see them.
  • Keep track of your progress in a diary and reward yourself for sticking to your resolution! We suggest rewarding yourself every couple of weeks or every month with your favourite Oatopia flapjacks.
  • Purchase a class card for an activity so that your committed to doing it for more than one session!
