2020 was quite the year for just about everyone around the world. The year posed many challenges, especially to people’s health and finances. So in 2021, we should focus on improving ourselves and getting the most out of the year. Resolutions are great so we should pick some for 2021. Here are eight resolutions we are setting for 2021, and maybe help you develop your own resolutions for the new year.
Save More Money for a Rainy Day
It may be challenging – especially if you are not working or making as much as you did in 2019 – but putting money aside for a rainy day should be on everyone’s list in 2021. There are many ways you can save money in 2021. Making a plan with regular contributions, using an app that rounds up purchases and puts the difference away, forgoing large purchases, or focusing on debt are just a few.

Get Your Step Count Up
Walking is one of the best things you can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you spent a lot of time stationary in 2020, you should make sure you get your step count up in 2021. Walking to work, the grocery store, or just for leisure, are a few ways to get the steps up. Walking groups with friends and neighbors are also good – as it can double as a social activity. Using a step tracker can help you set goals and monitor your progress.
Support Small Businesses
The last year has been challenging for small businesses, so shopping more locally and supporting more small businesses should be on everyone’s 2021 bucket list. Small businesses are essential for the economy. They also provide much of the culture that makes a town or city great. If they continue to struggle in 2021, the world will fill with chains and big box stores leaving us with less of an identity.
Read More Books
Reading is not only a great hobby it is also beneficial for maintaining a sharp brain. Any type of book, fiction or nonfiction, is excellent too! Fictional books help people and their creative skills and provide an escape from reality. Non-fictional books are great for gaining knowledge on a subject – as many are tireless efforts from people who are immersed in the topic.
Eat Green and Orange Fruits and Vegetables
There is a general consensus that people should eat green (for example, leafy greens and broccoli) and orange (for example, peppers and oranges) every day. They contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You should make an effort in 2021 to include more green and oranges fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Take An Online Course
Expanding your knowledge or learning a new skill is a great resolution to make in 2021. Programs are available on thousands of topics. While some may just want to become more knowledgeable on a subject, there are many options to learn new skills that can help you advance in your career or get you the skills you need if you are interested in a new field.
Donate What You Can
Money, goods, time – anything that you can donate – if you can – is a helpful and beneficial resolution. Going through your closet and donating old clothes could help keep people warm this winter. Donating food can help people struggling to feed their families. Donating time can help people – especially those who are isolated – with their mental health. Any can help.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Anything you can do to reduce your carbon footprint is a fair resolution in 2021. Not everyone needs to make significant moves – such as purchasing an electric vehicle or producing zero waste. It can be simple things such as using reusable bags and containers, carpooling, or biking to work, and recycling. Everything you do will help the world.
