Every year people all around the world make New Years resolutions. We know how hard it is sticking to them so we’ve decided to turn things around and throw out the don’t (don’t eat chocolate, don’t drink wine etc) and embrace the do! Here are 6 easy New Years resolutions you actually can DO!!
DO MOVE MORE
Instead of setting up an unachievable fitness routine think about easy ways you can all move more. Walking to school. Doing a house tidy run every day. (Get the whole family involved picking bits up and making beds)
DO SPEND SPECIAL TIME WITH THE KIDS
It’s hard balancing everything. The other week I dropped my youngest off at pre-school, something I don’t usually do and we read a book together. I felt sad and happy at the same time, sad to have not done this in a while and happy that I’d realised that! One of my new years resolutions is to soak up those special moments with the kids.
DO SCHEDULE FAMILY MEALS
If you’re a busy family sometimes it’s hard to all sit down and eat. Having a nightly family meal doesn’t always work so instead focus on one or two days a week when you can plan and share a lovely meal. Plan food the kids can help prepare to make it even better.
DO DO A DATE NIGHT
Time runs away with us mummies and often things like spending precious time with your other half drop to the bottom of the priority list. This year plan your date nights in advance. Wether you want to go out or stay in get planning and put some dates in the calendar now.
DO GET GROWING
Growing your own fruit and veg is a great family activity and here at mummies club we love gardening. Grab a note book and plan your veg patch/planting plan for the year ahead and look forward to family fun in the garden.
DO 5 A DAY (OR EVEN 3)
We all know getting enough fruit and veg into the family can be hard at times and 5 a day sometimes seems unachievable. Aim to increase to at least 3 portions and plan ahead. Add a simple fruit juice to breakfast, an afternoon dried fruit snack and a side salad to your evening meal and you’ll have things covered.
