Three Resolutions the Whole Family Can Make (and Keep!) This Year

New Year’s resolutions are for dreaming big about improving ourselves and our lives. Resolutions don’t always make it past the end of January, and that’s okay — it’s just as important to make small, meaningful commitments.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your ambitions for 2016, here are three simple ways you and your family can thrive together this year.

1. Listen to your body.

Take a few minutes each day to check in with how you’re feeling, emotionally and physically. Pay attention to what your body tells you and don’t push yourself too hard, especially if you’ve started a new fitness regimen this year. Be sure to communicate when you’re stressed or exhausted, and let your family know how you can all support each other. In short? Know yourself.

2. Spend more time outdoors.

Fresh air has an almost instantaneous effect on the mind and body. Even a short walk can alter your mood for the rest of the day. Get outside with the whole family whenever possible: walk instead of drive, volunteer at a community garden, or connect with nature at your favorite hiking trail.

3. Drink water.

We can’t stress it enough — your body needs this stuff! Medical professionals recommend adults drink two to three liters of water per day, while children over 3 should have a minimum of 1.2 liters (5 cups) up to 1.9 (8 cups) for tweens, so get in the habit of taking a reusable bottle with you, and refill it often.

The other goals you’ve set for yourself might be challenging, but you can make time to nurture your body and mind all year long.
