Yes, fitness goals are included — but the best resolutions often enrich your emotional health and spirit.
New Year’s Eve feels more cheerful and promising than it has in many years, a true celebration as the future holds hope in 2023. Annual resolutions have never been more crucial as a way to take stock of what’s truly important in your life — and you should pause to reflect long before family and friends cheer at midnight on December 31. If living through a global pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we shouldn’t take health and wellness for granted. In 2023, zeroing in on your body, mind and soul is a great way to organize your long-term goals for the new year.
And focusing on your health and well-being doesn’t always translate into a new diet or workout plan. Expand your sights on taking charge of your mental health, finally optimizing a better sleep routine or diving headfirst into reclaiming your space (wave bye to messy closets and disastrous bathrooms!).
Create a list of attainable New Year’s resolutions that allow you to make healthier lifestyle tweaks every day. You’ll start the year with a stronger, well-nourished body and an enriched mind if you adopt any of the daily objectives we are sharing here. Our resolutions help you calm down, easing stress and anxiety, while taming the crazy ebb and flow of daily life — featuring some of the best tips and life-saving tricks from our Good Housekeeping Institute experts.
Stay on track with resolutions using a planner to help you, checking off daily fitness goals and frequent decluttering tasks that feel much more achievable. This year, it’s time to put you first!
- 1. Build a better budget.
If there’s one New Year’s resolution that will help you the most in the long run, it’s making a vow to save more money.
Before you head back to the office in January, outline a rough budget that works for you — and make a plan for how you’ll stick to it. Apps like Mint and You Need a Budget (YNAB) can help you do this as painlessly as possible. And supercharge your shopping habits by rethinking when and how you buy things for your home and family; often, there are savings you’re leaving on the table.

- Practice Mindfulness
Anxiety can nag at anyone during any season, in all parts of life — and it can be easy to let the idea of the future or past experiences inform your reality of the present. Practicing mindfulness means doing everything you can to be grateful for what you have in the moment, where you are in life, and who you are right now, shared Sabrina Romanoff, Psy.D., a clinical psychologist in New York City and Yeshiva University professor. Romanoff and other leading psychological experts say committing to mindfulness can help you become a better person in less than a year’s time.
