58 New Year’s Resolutions That DON’T Involve Diet & Exercise

From the Federalist:

It’s that time to commit to a new year’s resolution. Rather than resort to the go-to pledges of years past, such as dieting and working out, here are 58 fresh ideas.

  1. Call a far-away family member every week, reminding him or her of a favorite memory from years past.
  2. Commit to an hour a week to organize pictures, either in albums or in the cloud.
  3. Start a journal of family memories. Write down one memory—newly made or from years ago—every night before turning in.
  4. Research your family tree.
  5. Take pen to paper (and stamp to envelope) and write a personal note once a week to a friend or family member.
  6. Pay off debt. Put yourself on a budget and tighten the belt. Use savings to pay off (and then cancel!) one credit card or student loan, establishing a monthly and year-end goal.
  7. Shop around for better prices for insurance (car and homeowner’s or rental), cell phone service, and landline or internet service. Goal for the year: renegotiate terms or change providers on all major services.
