The key to keeping your New Year’s resolutions

If you’re like many Australians, you might be setting your 2020 New Year’s resolutions and if you’re planning on hitting a few goals, here are some tips to ensure your resolutions aren’t on the backburner by Australia Day.

Ensure your resolutions include specifics and smaller stepping stones to achieving those goals – and most importantly – make sure you write your goals down or tell someone else about them to keep yourself accountable! Maybe in 2020 you can resolve to:

  1. Look after my health and wellbeing

Losing weight is one of the most popular resolutions made on December 31, but why not focus more on health and wellbeing? Rather than aiming to lose five kilos, pledge to go for a walk every day, integrate a new type of healthy and tasty food into your diet or try a wellness-based activity like tai chi, meditation or pilates.

  1. Develop a passion

Whether it’s unearthing an old passion or discovering a new one, find an activity that brings you joy and put more time into it. Did you love drawing when you were younger? Have you always secretly wanted to learn guitar? Be it photography, hiking or salsa dancing, sign up for a class or put aside an hour every week to spend time doing what makes you happy.

  1. Improve my financial situation

While resolving to win the lotto and move to France might be wishful thinking, there are real steps you can take to improve your finances. To help with saving, setting aside $30 a week will yield more than $1,500 by the year’s end, or even more if you deposit into a high-interest savings account!

Of course, it’s easier to keep a resolution that focuses on YOUR enjoyment too and why not – that’s what life should be all about!

There’s another great way to getting you on the road to improving your New Year goals and increasing both your financial situation and lifestyle needs.

Downsizing into a land lease community can unlock hundreds and thousands of dollars in equity after the sale of the family home and save downsizers the unnecessary costs of stamp duty, with no body corp or strata fees and no exit fees.

The innovative model is fast becoming the new lifestyle solution for over 55s to downsize into a brand new home in a community of like-minded neighbours.
