5 Common New Year’s Goals (And The Deals To Help You Stick To Them)

2019 New Year

We can't help but notice the increase in good behaviors lately. Friends and family alike all seem to be on a path toward healthy habits and the lines for the treadmills have doubled at the local gym. Of course, this makes sense as we are entering the second week of January and everyone is still motivated by the promise of a new year. It's an exciting promise of possibility and we are right there with you. So, whether your goal is intermittent fasting, becoming more mindful or just to slow down, isn't it nice to know you aren't alone in your efforts? Here's a look at the 5 most common New Year's goals and some of the best deals we have to help you stay on track to meet them. After all, it's the slow consistent path that yields the biggest results.

Get healthy

This is possibly the #1 resolution we all set come January 1. After all, by then we have over indulged for nearly two months on delicious foods and maybe had a few more drinks than we normally do. However, the specifics of "get healthy" are left to each individual. Sometimes it's quitting a bad habit, but often it means increasing physical activity and changing food habits. Planning, finding support and accountability are essential to shift these kind of behaviors into long term habits.  Right now Patch MD is offering 30% off sitewide with the code JAN30. That means you can load up on your vitamins and supplements for far less. It's an excellent opportunity to stock up and set yourself up for success. We've also got 53 stores offering over 200 coupons related to fitness, which means you can save a lot on shoes, gear, workout equipment and even online workout programs. These food delivery coupon codes are also an incredible way to make sure you don't have a reason to make bad eating choices.

Clean up finances

Post Christmas we usually experience a financial hangover. Despite our best efforts and every possible attempt at a budget, we overspend. That makes January feel rather long and harsh as we try to overcorrect our spending habits and get back to frugality. That means it's back to little savings strategies like checking our grocery spending and refusing to pay full price for anything again. Thankfully, these free shipping coupons make it easy to save on online orders.

Career goals

This could be the year for a big career move, right? According to US News, these are the top bets for careers in 2019. However, for business owners it may be time for new growth goals, or increasing those money-saving opportunities to enjoy the freedom of being an independent employer. Right now, you can save on big expenses like printing, business cards, tax prep and more with these business coupons.

Family time

For some, the new year represents a chance to reconnect with family relationships. Perhaps this is the time to plan that family vacation you've always dreamed of taking. If you have any flexibility, these cruise deals are pretty incredible right now. We are actually planning a trip to the Azores, which is surprisingly affordable for families.  If plane tickets are what keeps you from traveling too far, take advantage of these flight coupons and go!

Hobbies and education

Interestingly, New Year's seems to also spur people into action around hobbies. Perhaps the passing of another year is a wake up call to finally get started on that "thing" you've always wanted to try. Maybe it's time to activate the writer inside, or learn a new language . Whatever your interest may be, now is the time to explore it so that next year you can see the progress you've made.   What do you think, did we cover your New Year's goal?
