It Starts with a Square

New Year’s Resolutions Right Now

BY Regan Hewitt

For most people, a new calendar year implies starting over with a clean slate. Every New Year’s Eve, we look back on fond memories of the year before and pledge commitments toward a new resolution for the next year, but why can’t your brighter tomorrow start now? Believe it or not, it can, and there are plenty of reasons why starting your New Year’s resolutions today can be more beneficial in the long run.

Why wait until a certain date to transform your life? Every day you wake up is a chance to start over, to set new goals, and chase dreams! You don’t need a calendar to tell you when to set resolutions. Truth be told, when you set a future date to start something, you invalidate the present moment. If you think about it, you can accomplish a lot between now and the new year! 

Don’t lose valuable time that you can spend adopting healthier lifestyle choices because you’re waiting for the clock to strike midnight. Feel vibrant and accomplished today because the “right time” is any time! 

Tour Collierville has put together some ideas of local opportunities to help you get a jump start on those resolutions and catapult your way to success!
