5 Excellent New Years Resolutions

January 1, 2019

It's now time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. Read our top 5 resolutions for 2018!

1. Spend More Time with Family & Friends
More than 50% of Americans vow to appreciate loved ones and spend more time with family and friends. Make plans to meet up with friends for a round of golf, pedicures at the local salon, or dinner at your favorite restaurant!

2. Fit in Fitness
The evidence is in for fitness. Regular exercise has been associated with more health benefits than anything else known to man. Studies show that it reduces the risk of some cancers, increases longevity, helps achieve and maintain weight loss, enhances mood, lowers blood pressure, and even improves arthritis. In short, exercise keeps you healthy and makes you look and feel better.  At Piedmont Crossing, we build daily fitness into our schedule.

3. Tame the Bulge
Over 66 percent of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese by recent studies, so it is not surprising to find that weight loss is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions. Setting reasonable goals and staying focused are the two most important factors in sticking with a weight loss program, and the key to success for those millions of Americans who made a New Year's commitment to shed extra pounds.

4. Enjoy Life More
Given the hectic, stressful lifestyles of millions of Americans, it is no wonder that "enjoying life more" has become a popular resolution in recent years. It's an important step to a happier and healthier you!   Visit Piedmont Crossing to broaden your perspective and gain socialization and new friendships.

5. Learn Something New
Have you vowed to make this year the year to learn something new? Perhaps you want to study a new language, try a new hobby, or just learn how to navigate on your computer? Whether you take a course or read a book, you'll find education to be one of the easiest, most motivating New Year's resolutions to keep to stay informed.
