10 New Years Resolutions Actually Worth Making

10 New Years Resolutions Actually Worth Making

The push towards New Years Resolutions can be strong this year - may we suggest something a little different from the norm? 

There's no need to make drastic changes just because we have a new calendar year - especially not with an intention to 'fix' something that is 'broken.' We'd like to suggest, instead of weight change or body focus that perhaps one of the following might be more appealing. 

At 5:17, our focus is to meet women where they are with grace and authenticity to provide encouragement and guidance for the journey YOU decide. If you'd like exercise, nutrition or emotional wellness to be a component of your journey, fill out the form on your screen or click here to claim a complimentary, no-obligation consultation. 

We'll get to know you, create a plan with the level of flexibility and encouragement you desire, that fits your budget, so you can feel really great about investing in yourself. 

  • Learn your hunger cues and how to satisfy them, ditching diets forever and the need to punish yourself for existing as you are. 

  • Unfollow those on social media who make you feel “less than.” Scrolling the curated highlight reel of another while sitting in your own real life existence creates an impossible environment for gratitude and contentment. (For the record, this doesn’t mean you have to cut them out of your life.)

  • Get a hobby. That doesn’t pay. And seems like a complete waste of time. Tell nobody. Or tell everybody. But do it for yourself. 

  • Say “no” more often and let go of things - grudges, chores, responsibilities. Every “no” is a “yes” to things that actually fuels you in life. 

  • Zone out - meditate, read, take a tech Sabbath, etc. If you don’t come apart for a while, you will come apart in a while. (Dallas Willard)

  • Compare less. Finding contentment within your situation and realm of your own current context is sparked by gratitude and fanned by a determination to keep your eyes on your own paper.

  • Let go of judgments. Allowing others to simply exist as they are enables us to find grace for ourselves. 

  • Help more - hold a door, smile at the cashier (when masks are no longer needed), give a dollar to the guy on the corner. A focus on the needs and struggles of others alleviates the overwhelm of the suffering we currently face. 

  • Develop & trust your intuition. There is no clear blueprint for this, but it definitely involves being open to failing at things. For me, this has come from connecting more deeply with my faith and asking less for advice disguised as permission or approval.

  • Just Be. Instead of moving toward something new, aim to understand attributes about yourself that you already enjoy, and exist and embody those in a deeper way.
