At the beginning of each new year it is easy to set goals that have a big price-tag. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Here are some ideas that will help you to focus on things that will help bring more health and wealth into your life:
Vacation – a five star all-inclusive might not be your best choice. Perhaps taking a week off to stay at home and rest would be wiser! many people book the big trip and come home exhausted and broke. If your home is comfortable, why not enjoy it? or spend a couple of days making it more comfortable and then take the rest of the week to relax?
Research also states that one of the very best forms of exercise you can do is to go for a walk three times a week. If you are worried about the slippery ground, why not head to a mall where you have lots of room to walk in an interesting environment. Food – spending just $10.
00 a day at a restaurant or drive through means that you are giving over $2000. 00 a year away when you could have packed a nutritious lunch for far less. Investing a little extra time can provide you with a great saving and a better diet.
4. You probably don’t need to go shopping! just try on the items you have. If they don’t fit or make you look dumpy, get rid of them.
Make sure that everything else is clean, mended and visible so that you can save time getting dressed as well as money!
5. Family activities – rather than spending fifty to one hundred dollars for popcorn and a movie, set up a theatre night at home. Choose a day of skating at a community rink rather than an expensive ski holiday.
A library card is less than the costs of one book and will give you access to newspapers, movies, music and programs as well as books for a whole year. 6. Social interaction – invite friends, family or neighbours to your house rather than only planning times to go out together.
Board games, cards or a puzzle can provide lots of laughter at no cost. 7. Repairs – over the past few years people have bought into the idea that things are disposable and need to be thrown away unless they are perfect.
Sometimes a little mending will renew an outfit. Home renovations can be accomplished with a little know how. If you are willing to learn and invest some sweat equity, you can save a lot of money and enjoy a little healthy pride.
Personal development – you don’t need to enroll in harvard university to become more knowledgeable. Start by reading a book or two. Learn a language from a neighbour.
Build your resume by volunteering. Just decide what skills you would like to have and then consider the many options available. 9.
Time efficiency – use your head not your feet. Never walk anywhere without having something in your hands. 10.
Lunch and coffee breaks are important. Don’t let anything steal them from you! think about dogs and cats. They incorporate play and rest into every day.
If you are hoping that this year will bring you better health and increased wealth, just take a little time to consider the many little changes that will lead to success!.
