LOS ANGELES, CA, December 31, 2017 — New Year's is the time of the year when you look back at your past year, see what changes need to be made that will improve your life and make a resolution to make the necessary changes so that the coming year will be better. Many will set new goals but few will find themselves at the end of the year never having achieved them. A common problem is that people will set a long term goal for themselves but will not make a plan on how to achieve their goal. Another problem is that people will not be specific enough with their goals. For example instead of the resolution to lose weight, you should be setting a specific amount of weight you'd like to lose and keep off by the end of the year. This article is going to discuss two of the most popular New Year's resolutions that are made every year and offer tips on how to stick to them this year.
Weight Loss & Fitness
It is estimated that around 38% of New Year's Resolutions are to lose weight, get fit and eat healthy but 92% of these resolutions will fail. Before committing to losing weight, make sure that you are doing it for yourself. If you start a weight loss resolution because your are being pressured by other forces in your life, the chances of falling significantly increase. Make sure that you are making this commitment for yourself and are motivated to sticking to this weight loss pledge. Once you make the pledge, create an attainable goal for yourself. If you do not have a specific amount of weight you'd like to lose and are looking to become generally more healthy, you can make a specific fitness goal you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year. For example you can choose how many miles you'd like to run in a workout or certain foods you'd like to entirely cut out by the end of the year. To get an extra boost to support weight loss, many will find that taking a supplement is a good option for them.

Paying off debt and saving money is the #1 financial goal set every year. The biggest financial regrets include not saving enough money, not paying off debts, spending frivolous money (like $20 on an avocado toast) and not paying bills on time. To save more money this year, the first step is to stop incurring debts and to begin paying them off. $7,000 of credit card debt will cost you a little over one thousand dollars of interest. The first step you should take in order to start saving is to start paying back your debts. If you do not have debts and are looking to save more money this year begin by trading in luxuries for necessities. Instead of splurging on a $6 latte, save by having a regular $2 cup of coffee. It is easy to miss these small costs but they do add up to money you can be saving. If you save only $3 a day you will end up with more than a thousand dollars in the bank by the end of the year.
If you are like 75% of the American population, you will be also looking to get fit and save money this year. Make this year you best year yet by taking the necessary steps to commit and stick to keeping your resolutions so that 2018 can be your best year yet!
