We all make resolutions this time of year. Some of them are grand and complex, while others simple and easily attainable. But usually, the aim of a resolution is to improve something about our lives that we don’t like, change a bad habit we have or develop new habits.
While resolutions are inherently personal, there are ways to inspire change in yourself that can also affect change in your community or even the world.
6 Ways Your New Years Resolutions Can Make the World a Better Place
Many resolutions revolve around achieving a healthy, happy, family life. Spending more time with your kids or your spouse. Cooking more meals at home. Doing things that can help keep your family well. Whatever your resolution is regarding you family, it can start with cooking delicious, healthy meals that allow you to spend time together around the dinner table.
In her new personal cookbook Food, Health and Happiness, Oprah Winfrey shares 115 on-point recipes that will help your family be happier and healthier. The book not only includes recipes, it includes essays, photos, and stories from Oprah herself to help inspire your family meals. With recommendations for sustainable ingredients and recipes from across the globe, Oprah will teach your family how to enjoy delicious healthy food while gaining an understanding of and an appreciation for other cultures.
The book is beautiful inside and out with great photography, insightful notes and clear instructions for making each recipe. There a number of recipe I can’t wait to try!
We all have bad habits, and some are worse than others. If one of your bad habits involves snacking on not-so-healthy things, that’s an easy change to make.

This is a big category where resolutions are concerned. I’d bet half the world resolves to be more fit in 2017. Even those of us who are fit, want to be more fit. Over the years, I have found that sometimes fitness requires certain gear, and some gear is more important than others. Take socks for example. Get active in the wrong socks and you can end up with blisters, sweaty feet, holes in your socks, or even improperly fitting shoes because of the way the socks fit. And an uncomfortable, ill-fitting sock is not likely to inspire you to keep moving.
To kick your fitness resolution off on the right foot (pun totally intended), FITS® Socks boasts the best fitting socks on the planet! They use innovative, proprietary engineering and the best raw materials to create a sock that offers the best fit with amazing performance. Whether you need running socks, general lifestyle socks, skiing socks, sporting socks, tactical socks or hiking socks, FITS has a sock for you.

There is no single more important thing your body needs than water. Our bodies are made up of a lot of water and a not enough of it every day can lead to dehydration, and potentially affect your mood, cause aches and pains, muscle cramps and even headaches.

Crisp, clear and refreshing. I think it tastes better than water in a plastic bottle.
It’s easy to judge people. From the style of their hair to their choice of shoes, people notice things and make assumptions about them. I’ve fallen into that trap and I’m sure most other people have too. For some, skin color, race, sex, and religion cause people to judge and make assumptions that are usually wrong. And sometimes, it turns into a terrible tragedy. This is probably a more obscure resolution but I believe that it is one of the most important – resolving to accept people and treat them as equals no matter what.
EQUAL hopes to change the world by ending discrimination and promoting equality for everyone. Their aesthetically strong and meaningful symbol stand for unifying equality and with their products you can show off your resolution to help support equal rights for everyone.
