New Year resolutions for 2016 don’t have to be complicated. Try these handful of ideas to see how you can get better in the coming year. 

With less than a month to go until the New Year, many of us are starting to think about our New Year’s resolutions. Most people like to use the New Year as an opportunity to set goals for themselves – whether this be personal, financial, or even academic goals.

If you’re eager to make 2016 your year and improve your life, here are five brilliant New Year’s resolutions you can set.

Quit Smoking

Smoking is bad for your health, your appearance, and it’s a drain on finances. Many people who smoke have tried to quit in the past and failed, as nicotine is highly addictive and the withdrawal symptoms aren’t nice to deal with. However, thanks to modern technology we now have electronic cigarettes, which a huge number of smokers are using as a quitting aid. The e-liquids in them still contain nicotine meaning that you won’t need to go through nicotine withdrawal whilst reaping all the other benefits of quitting smoking. Click here for more information.

Join a Gym

Getting fit and healthy is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, so if you choose to join a gym in the New Year you can probably expect many joining offers and discounts. Even going to the gym once or twice a week will greatly improve your health and fitness, and you could even book in with a personal trainer if you’re serious about getting into shape.

Read More

Books are becoming a thing of the past thanks to new technology, and whilst some of us still enjoy reading on tablets and e-reader devices, others simply don’t read at all. Reading can really help to broaden your horizons, and there’s nothing quite like the feeling of being hooked on a good book.


Resolving to do more voluntary work and give back to the community in the New Year will definitely improve your life. Charities everywhere for a range of different causes are always looking for dedicated volunteers, so whether you want to work with children, the elderly, or even animal sanctuaries, devoting a portion of your time each week to a good cause will enrich your life and give you the fantastic sense of satisfaction that you can only get from helping others.

Eat Healthier

A healthy diet is another popular New Year’s resolution as most people find that they put on a few extra pounds thanks to the Christmas festivities. Eating healthier won’t just help you to lose weight, it strengthens your body and mind and gives you the nutrients that you need. If you’ve been eating a lot of junk foods and unhealthy foods lately, your body will be full of toxins, and will definitely welcome the detox in the New Year. In order to best stick to your new healthy eating plan, it’s a good idea to allow yourself a treat once in a while so you don’t feel disheartened or too restricted.
