Kick the year off with these resolutions that are easy to keep!

It’s that time of year when many of us genuinely promise to make positive changes in our lives. And with this being 2020, there’s even more pressure to get this new decade off to the right start. While you may have great intentions, those resolutions often fall by the wayside. By the time February arrives, you end up feeling disappointed in yourself and maybe even like a failure.

So to help you out, Aleteia has come up with some resolutions that are doable over a long period of time, will guarantee you some spiritual growth, and may even have a few health benefits, too. You can take your pick from any of these suggestions, or do them all! To get more accountability and support, enlist the participation of some other family members and friends!
