Once again the New Year is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about our goals for the new year.

Perhaps you were not realistic when choosing your resolutions, so here are some ideas and tips to help you stay on track to a healthier you this upcoming year.
Good mental shape
Getting in shape is the most popular resolution and it is a very important one, but what about mental shape? As we get older, it is important to not only take good care of our bodies but of our mental health and skills too. Incorporate memory building games, such as reading, crossword puzzles, word search, and any other activity that helps juggle your memory.
Drink in moderation.
During the holidays we often drink cocktails socially, but this is also a great time to start thinking about how many drinks are too many. Set some limits, drink socially, or stop drinking once and for all, this will bring some long-term benefits to your health if you’re a heavy drinker.
Learn a new language.
Learning a new language not only comes in handy, but it also helps you keep your mind stronger. It can help you meet new people, it will help you improve your communication and concentration skills and it will definitely look amazing on your CV, which will always open some doors. You can go to language classes, join free conversation groups or be self-taught, there are tons of apps and TV programs that can help you achieve your new goals.
Volunteer to do charity work
There are many places that you can volunteer and do charity work, such as churches, schools, community groups, food banks or soup kitchens. It will not only make you feel good about yourself, but it will help you realize the need that exists in your community. Getting involved for the greater good can help you meet new people and offer a helping hand to those that need it most.
Make your health a priority
This one is a very important one, but sometimes it is harder to achieve than we think. Create new healthy habits and stick to them, eat more veggies, eat less sugar, go to the gym, practice some yoga, and visit your doctor more often. The New Year is a perfect time to schedule doctor’s appointments and schedule health screenings. Make a list of all your bad habits and good habits and see how you can improve your health this year.
