Healthy and Unique New Year’s Resolutions for This Year

When it comes to unique New Year’s resolutions, most Americans trend towards popular New Year’s resolutions instead of the unique. In fact, many have to do with better health.

Here is what a recent New Year’s resolutions survey found:

  • Six in 10 Americans wanted to drop some pounds.
  • One-third hoped to get more exercise this year.
  • Twelve percent planned to join a gym.

In addition, many people want to do a better job of managing their money. The third most popular New Year’s resolution is to take up a new hobby or learn new skills.

My take on healthy and unique New Year’s resolutions

Rather than simple focus on common or popular New Year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to take a twist on the regular. That is this blog post for the new year focuses on healthy and unique New Year’s resolutions.

And I’m not just going to list them and move on with my life.


I’ve tracked down deals or more information that you need to know about in order to pursue those resolutions, be them healthy or unique.

For example, my own resolutions include being more mindful and, frankly, grateful. I’m in a good place in my life and want to remind myself regularly about how blessed I really am.

So how am I going to pursue what might not be a super unique New Year’s resolution but one that feels authentic to me? Well, I might treat myself to some art for my office space or bedroom that fits with my mantra about being more mindful. Or maybe some other housewares that reflect my newfound commitment to seeking simple happiness in the new year.

Last year my husband and I signed up with HelloFresh, because eating better was one of our healthy New Year’s resolutions. It’s one of a handful of meal subscription services we’ve tried recently, and it’s become one of our favorites.

Check out my review of three meal kit delivery services.

We’ve loved everything this meal kit service has delivered to our front door and we’ve cooked at home. Even our picky-eater teen daughters have liked the meals from HelloFresh.

HelloFresh offers a family plan that serves four, or you can sign up to get meals that serve two–perfect for the young couple or empty nester. HelloFresh makes it easy to keep those healthy new year’s resolutions.

Savings on self care New Year’s resolutions

Is self care one of your healthy New Years resolutions? I highly recommend it. When I say “self care,” I mean doing something regularly to take care of your body, mind and spirit.
