7 Smarter Living Resolutions You Can Keep

7 Simple & Easy New Year's Resolutions

As great as setting goals for the new year is, January can seem daunting enough without putting pressure on yourself.

In keeping with our #SmarterLiving inspiration, below is a list of simple and achievable resolutions that will be easy for you and your family to keep throughout the year - and not just for January! 

Time Happy

Start to set your alarm clock a bit earlier and be amazed by how much you can see and do in 5-10 minutes. Whether it is a few stretches or reading something inspirational (uninterrupted!), those blissful minutes will set you up well for the day.

In an age of where mindfulness apps and self-care are being encouraged, why not make 2019 the year of putting yourself first each day.
