New Year’s Resolutions That Are Better For Parents

Can Parents make New Year’s Resolutions without losing their minds?! 🤯
When it comes to New Year’s resolutions our goals can be exciting and ambitious. We think about things we want to change in our lives or things we want to bring into our lives or into the world.
BUT are those things better for us as parents? If nothing else, we’ve learned how to pace ourselves in 2020! Before COVID we were living in a world that, in my view, was moving too fast. Appointments, classes, activities – it never stopped! Now life has slowed down & in some ways it’s a relief!
Start easy. Think of good habits you established during this pandemic and are easy to continue like cooking at home and less trips to the grocery store. With cooking at home you are eating healthier (one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions) and saving money (another good one!). During this time you have learned how to plan grocery shopping and that means less time driving, less energy involving food transportation and more time with your loved ones.

🌿 Make realistic goals. Sourdough baking sounds great, but not everyone has the time & energy for all of that! Baking muffins or biscuits is a great place to start. If that’s still too much, support your local bakery & get your fresh bread there!

🌿 Choose a habit that is simple. You want to exercise more, but aren’t sure where to start? How about taking walks in your neighborhood while listening to a podcast or calling a friend? Walking will make your heart beat faster and clear your mind.

🌿 Ask for help! Do you want to live your life in a more sustainable way but are overwhelmed? It takes a village!

🌿 Subscribe to a CSA to eat local & healthy! Community supported agriculture models bring you fresh and local vegetables with easy to manage subscriptions. Many of them suggest different recipes and you will be amazed how easy they are!

🌿 Get a diaper service! You want to cloth diaper your baby because you know the terrible impact to the world but can’t commit to the poopy laundry days? A diaper service like Tinkle Belle will provide sanitized diapers to your doorstep weekly & will also clean them using less resources than home washing.

Whatever you choose for your New Year’s resolution, really think on what’s better for your life and mind. Each small change matters!
