Every year we make New Years Resolutions. “New Year New Me”. But 2020 is the big one. 2020 is the dawn of a new decade. 2020 is the one where we will really make a difference in our lives. 2020 is your year!
Question is, it it really?! How many New Years Resolutions have you kept and stuck to? Here’s our top 5 New Years Resolutions that last for 5 minutes before being thrown in the bin!
- GET A NEW GYM MEMBERSHIP
January is the busiest time of the year for Gyms and new Gym memberships. How many of you joined a gym in January, used it for a month then gave up but kept paying because it was too much hassle to cancel?! Yep we did too! Let’s be honest, we’re not going to use it and the diet won’t work either. Which leads us nicely on to number 2……
2. START A BRAND NEW DIET
This one doesn’t just apply to January, this is a standard promise we make to ourselves every Monday. After all the food of Christmas and New Year, everyone wants to get Instagram ready. But what about when you get back in the office with all the leftover cakes? Or get back into the Friday night takeaway routine with Love Island and Dancing on Ice on TV? It’s a tough ask! Our advice is just accept that food is one of lifes pleasures and is there to be enjoyed!
3. BE MORE ORGANISED
There’s always that one person who’s got everything together, always running around doing everything but never breaking a sweat. So we promise ourselves next year that will be me. We buy a new diary / calendar, even get new pens so we have all the tools to be organised. Unfortunately it usually ends up with us having all the gear but no idea! Planning an event is event harder! Luckily for you, you can just ask us at RedCactusEvents.co.uk because we are trained professionals and can help you! (It’s not cheating honestly……)
4. SAVE MORE MONEY
Whether you’re opening a new savings account or just trying to tighten the purse strings, we all want to save money. But with New Year comes new trends so there will always be something you want to spend money on. Nobody wants to have FOMO when they see all their friends having fun with the latest activities or gadgets. What if the newest Iphone is the must have item or you’re planning a wedding?! Just face it, you’re going to spend the same amount of money as last year, if not more!
5. SEE FRIENDS MORE
This is the one that’s really tough to keep as it relies on other people as much as you. Ever bump into your friends and say ‘Oh we really should do something soon, lets get together, message me and we will sort something out”. Does it happen? NO. Why is that you ask? Because LIFE happens. 2020 is the year when everyone will be getting married, having babies and being generally too busy. Any social event will take months of planning so if you’re hoping to see your friends next Christmas, better start planning now!
Of course none of this is set in stone. We are all for people who can make a New Years Resolution and stick to it. We’re just jealous that we don’t have the will power to stick to ours!
If you were wondering, our New Years Resolution is to give groups better experiences than ever to ensure that no matter what the occasion or age group, everyone has a good time! If this sounds like something that would be up your street then get in touch with us here!
