55 New Year's Resolution Ideas Worth A Try In 2018

A list of less heard of New Year's Resolutions

There are many people out there who don't believe in New Year's Resolution. I understand that if you want to make a change for yourself, you don't have to wait until the new year to do so. The new year is a great starting point for change. A resolution can be just what some people need to become they person they want and need to be. I came up with a list of some out of the ordinary resolutions worth trying this year.

1. Spend less time on your phone

2. Delete one form of social media

3. Cook dinner at least one night a week

4. Give up fast food

5. Read one book a month

6. Be more aware of your surrounds

9. Stay organized

10. Save $30 dollars every paycheck

11. Start volunteering regularly

12. Eat out at local places only

13. Start blogging

Some of these may sound cliche and easy to forget about after a week into the near year. As cliche as they may sound, they can make a huge difference in your life and others. Keep a reminder of your resolution on your phone lock screen, on your mirror in your bathroom, in your planner, or in your car.

There's no guidelines for your resolution other than the ones you make for yourself. If you want to be better, but you're not sure how, hopefully this list of ideas gave you some inspiration. It's never too soon or too late to be better.

You walk outside and there are leaves everywhere. They are all waiting for you. They are crisp and ready to go. As you walk your merry way, they crunch as if cheering you on. If you want to go for the win, gather all the leaves up into a pile and jump. That huge crunch as you land is music to your ears.

Everywhere you look everything is beautiful. There are colors of all sorts. They are bright and vibrant. Yellows, oranges, and reds that bring joy to everywhere you go. The scene is inspirational to any artist.

Apple pie, turkey, pumpkin spice, s'mores, stuffing, and the list of items in this feast go on and on. Foods that only match this season come out to be enjoyed and we must make the most of them.

Bonfires, campfires, and small fires at home are all encouraged in the fall. They provide warmth and comfort for all, from the solitary thinker to the family of ten.

There is no better time for a drive through the country than in the fall. Cool breeze blows through your hair. The rolling hills are well pronounced with accented colors. The air smells of invitation to go on an adventure.

12. Daylight Savings


Get ready to 'fall back' an hour! Daylight savings ends and we get to sleep an extra hour. We all deserve that extra hour.

13. Holidays


Finally, fall kicks-off the holidays. It's because of the holidays that we can make it through winter but fall gives us a great warm-up round with Halloween and Thanksgiving. The family is brought closer together. Friends are appreciated. Fall has arrived.
