How Your New Year’s Resolutions Can Help Others

January 5, 2020 9:32 pm

Visit a few homes in Manor TX and you’re sure to find people who are determined to stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Whether they plan to get in shape, organize their homes or stick to a budget, each of them can benefit from additional motivation what will help them reach their goals.

If you’re one of those people, consider using your resolutions to help others. Paying it forward will give you an added reason to keep going when your motivation runs low. Here are 4 common New Year’s Resolutions that allow you to help someone else while improving your life:

  1. Lose Weight. We all know that losing weight starts with eating less and exercising more. How can that help someone else? When you shop for healthy food items, consider purchasing extras to donate to your local food bank. If you buy new exercise equipment or clothing, give your previous ones to a charity thrift shop or neighbor in need.
  2. Organize Your Home. If you need inspiration, read a book like Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. After you clear the clutter, have a yard sale to raise money for your favorite charity. Donate unsold items. Shop at resale stores to find storage containers, baskets or shelves to organize your remaining possessions without spending a lot of money.
  3. Stick to a Budget. Take time each month to plan how you’ll spend your income. If you can, include a set amount each month to donate to a worthy cause. Even small amounts donated regularly can make a difference.
  4. Reduce Stress. Combine this with your other resolutions to do double duty. If you want to get in shape, volunteer to walk dogs at the local shelter. Interacting with pets is a proven stress reducer. Or invite a friend to enjoy a funny movie with you. Laughter and friendship are proven health-boosters.
