New Year’s is the time of year when we try to start fresh by leaving the past behind and looking forward to the future, one of the most common traditions during this time is to make a New Year’s Resolution.
Resolutions can be for anything, they can be for personal goals that one has set out to achieve or even professional goals, so here are a few of the most popular resolutions that are seen around the world:
Spend more time with family:
With our fast paced lives consumed by our careers, to-do lists and responsibilities, personal and family life takes a backseat sometimes, so resolving to spend more time with family is a good idea. Start with simple things like having one night set for family dinner, this way you have something to look forward to and everyone knows when it is.
A very popular resolution is to lose weight, and probably the only way to achieve that is to set goals that are realistic. Start small with a realistic target weight loss that can be achieved sooner and keep you motivated.
Learn Something New:
Have you vowed to make this year the year to learn something new? Perhaps you are considering a career change, want to learn a new language, or just how to use your new smart phone. And speaking of smart phones Standard Bank has recently improved its mobile app. It is FREE on both the Google Play and iTunes. Check your balance, pay bills and even transfer funds all from the convenience of your smart phone equipped with Standard Bank’s Mobile Banking App.
On just about every New Year resolution list, organization can be a very reasonable goal. Whether you want your home organized enough that you can invite someone over on a whim, or your office organized enough that you can find the stapler when you need it.
In keeping with the theme of getting organized, what better time to turn off the paper and get comfortable receiving your statements electronically. e-Statements are fast, secure and best of all FREE.
