Restore old friendships

It’s not always easy to remain close to friends who don’t live down the street, or in the same state. The good news is that there are dozens of new resources to revive those old friendships! Make a phone call, reach out via FacetimeFacebook or other social media sites. There are multiple platforms which offer the same or similar sources as the ones mentioned. Make it your goal to rekindle those old or new-found friendships.

Spend more time with grandkids

Meeting up with your grandchildren shouldn’t require for a special occasion. Staying in touch with your grandkids on a regular basis will strengthen the bond between you and keep the entire family closer together. Take on a new hobby together, share a common interest, go out to dinner or see a movie with them one or twice a month. Spend more time with your loved ones this year.

Resolutions are an incredible way to start fresh, or to press the reset button. Staying motivated to uphold these goals can be a challenge, but where there is a will there is a way. Whether you are starting a new goal or picking up where you left last year, keep yourself accountable. For some resolutions you can record progress towards daily goals and write them down.

Whatever your goal may be, start small, and success will surely be yours in the year ahead!
