I’m usually not a “New Year’s Resolution” kind of girl. They can be kind of daunting, and when you fail at them it can make you feel down in the dumps. But, I have found a few resolutions that are more like “life goals”, if you do them you feel good about yourself, and if you don’t it doesn’t make any difference! Here are a few easy “resolutions” to take on in 2017.

  1. Stop trying to diet. Dieting is a waste of time. Drink more water and eat more fruits and veggies. Also exercise regularly! That’s all the “dieting” you need!
  2. Take a social media break. Staying off of it for a few days can help clear your mind and give you a new perspective on things. I did that when I came home from college and it was one of the best things for me.
  3. Be present with other people. This kind of goes with the one above. When you are out to dinner with friends or family, or if you are at a friend’s house hanging out, put your phone away and give them your attention.
  4. Give more compliments.new-year-resolutions
  5. Find a form of exercise you enjoy. If you like it, you are more likely to do it!
  6. Try things you’ve never done before. It could be food, exercise, movie genres, anything that you haven’t done before!
  7. Talk to older family members about their childhood. I love listening to my older family members talk about what it was like to grow up in the time period they did. You can learn so much from them, and they love sharing their memories with you!

Not all New Year’s resolutions have to be boring!

Are you throwing a New Year’s party this year or do you know someone who is? If so, then you need ideas on how to make it the BEST New Year’s party everrrr! Here are some pretty entertaining party ideas!

– Glow-in-the-dark games: Because New Year’s parties are at night, that means that you can do glow-in-the-dark games! Some ideas are glow-in-the-dark ring toss and glow in the dark bowling! Check out my article called “glow in the dark party ideas” for more ideas!nye party

-Boxes for each hour: Staying up until midnight strikes can be a bit challenging to some. To stay awake until the New Year, make boxes to open every hour on the hour that have games or treats inside. For instance, the 11:00 box could have the instructions to a fun game for the whole group. The 12:00 box could have sparkling grape juice in it to celebrate the New Year!

-Photo booth: Everyone loves a fun photo both! This photo booth has a New Year’s twist to it. Everyone takes turns taking a photo in the home-made photo booth, and in their photo they are holding a small chalk board on which they have written their New Year’s resolution! Also, there are a few websites on which you can print out fun photo booth props such as hats and glasses!

I hope these ideas help you have the best New Year’s party ever!

XOXO, Chels

Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions. But you want to know something? I have a challenge for YOU! Want to know what it is? Every time something good happens to you, I want you to write it on a slip of paper and put it in a jar. Then, on December 31st of 2014, open the jar and read about all of the amazing things that happened to you in 2014. What some ideas on what you can put in the jar? You can put:

-Accomplished goals

-“LOL” moments

-Daily blessings

-Memories worth saving

– Unexpected surprises

By adding these happy moments to the jar you are creating a journal of everything that made life worth living in 2014! On December 31st, you will have so much fun reliving all of the amazing moments 2014 presented to you and you will be able to see how much God blessed you during the year!

I cannot wait to open my jar at the end of the year!

Stick with Your New Year’s Resolutions!

Hi Insiders,

            The start of a new year is all about a fresh start.  It’s the perfect time to leave the past behind you and set goals for yourself.  Although keeping up with them can be hard, it’s not impossible!  Unfortunately, many of us don’t stick with our New Year’s resolutions and resort back to our old selves.  Don’t let that happen to you this year!  Follow my simple guide to sticking with your New Year’s resolution.Chelsea Crockett- new year's resolution

            Many people start the New Year with big ambitions.  DON’T.  This is the first problem.  If your goal is too hard and out of the ordinary, it will be tough to continue with it.  You must start small and make a resolution that you know is obtainable.  The second step to sticking with your resolution is to take it one step at a time.  For example, if you want to stop eating sweets, don’t cut them out altogether.  Start by eating two sweets a day, then one, then none!  Gradual changes make a drastic change seem less drastic.  Also, turn to your family and friends for support.  There’s nothing wrong with having a crowd of people cheering you on!  It’s also very helpful to write your resolution on a piece paper and hang it up as a reminder.

                    Once you have officially seen progress or completed your goal for the New Year, celebrate!  Reward yourself with a massage or shopping spree for following through.  Nothing says “you can do it” better than a day pampering yourself.  Remember, don’t beat yourself up if you fail the first time.  What’s important is that you keep on trying!

Happy New Year!

            Chelsea
