Do This DIY Project Instead Of Making New Year’s Resolutions

Here’s What You Should Do Instead Of Making New Year’s Resolutions

Here’s a fun way to start the New Year. Instead of resolutions…try rememberlutions. What, you might ask yourself, is a remerlution? Well, it’s the opposite of a resolution. A resolution is something that we want to change in the upcoming year. “I’m going to lose 20 pounds.” “I’ll drink less alcohol this year.” “I’ll run 3 times a week for a whole year.” It’s good to be ambitious and have goals but the problem with resolutions is that we often don’t keep them. We diet for January and February and then fall off the wagon. Guilt Guilt Guilt with a capital G. Rememberlutions are another and guilt free way of looking at the new year.

First you need to grab a jar and a plethora of craft supplies (I’m always looking for ways to use that word). Once your jar is decorated, you’re ready to start! Over the year fill it up with all of the positive things that happened. Good memories and personal accomplishments, big or small. Some of mine for 2014 might have been that I camped for 4 day without taking a shower. That was a major accomplishment for me! Another would have been that I finished the wedding photo album that I started years ago.

Look at all the memories at the end of the year and and celebrate instead of beating yourself up for being a quitter. You could read them during the year too if you needed a boost or extra encouragement. I would save the jars and have years worth of memories that I could go back and look at down the road.

You can still make resolutions too and has a list of the most popular ones for 2015. I know some of mine are on that list! Find them here
