With the New Year upon us, it’s a good time to take a step back from all that holiday shopping to reflect on the things that are important to us and the things we’d like to change. For some, it’s a new job or career path, or even a new look. For others, it’s the ability to spend more time with our family and loved ones. No matter what your New Year’s resolution is there are plenty of ways to achieve it.
But let's face it, while it’s easy to pick a New Year’s resolution, it’s not so easy to stick with it. The U.S. News & World Report puts the average of failed resolutions at about 80%, with most dropping off by mid-February. That's pretty bleak, especially if you were hoping for real change this year.
With that in mind, the Groupon Coupons team has put together some of the top New Year’s resolution ideas, as well as ingenious ways to keep at them long after the Christmas tree comes down and the last of the tinsel is swept away. Ready to get started? Pick from the cards below and we'll reveal the path to the ‘new you’ you’re destined for this year.
Finding love is easier said than done, but there are a few ways you can put yourself out there this year to increase your chances. If you’re starting from scratch, try an online dating app to introduce you to like-minded singles in your area. And if you are currently in a relationship, consider strengthening those bonds with romantic gestures such as chocolate, flowers, or a nice bottle of bubbly.

Getting healthy doesn’t always mean losing weight, though it’s usually a happy outcome of a healthier lifestyle. If you don’t want to join the hordes at the gym this January, consider at-home fitness machines and boosting your health with protein powders and supplements. And if your meal planning needs some portion control, opt for a weight loss program or meal kits.
