Are you ready to greet 2018 with New Year’s resolutions that have in built-in staying power? New Year’s resolutions that have real meaning behind them, benefit you, the people you love, and have the ability to have a meaningful effect on your life and the lives of your family. Here are three of our favorite resolutions that will help you start 2018 on the right foot.
- Have A Heart To Heart Talk With Your Family
Remember when families regularly had dinner together and talked over the events of the day? Recapture that tradition by planning a special family dinner for the beginning of 2018. Use the time together to share favorite meals, moments, and memories of the past, and to map out your future. This dinner is an ideal time to discuss what everyone’s future looks like and the roles you’ll play to each other.
- Have A Whole Family Check-Up
The beginning of the year is a smart, easy-to-remember time for the whole family to schedule appointments for physical, dental, and eye exams. Good health is one of the smartest ways to start the new year. It’s also one of the best gifts you can give your family. You’ll have the opportunity to make sure the whole family is physically fit, to address any medical needs that may arise, and to ensure optimal health and happiness for every family member.
- Create or Review Your Will
If you have a will or trust in place, good for you for planning ahead. If you don’t have a will or trust, now is the time to set one up. A will allows you – instead of the state of Georgia – to decide how your real and personal property will be distributed after your demise. It also lets you make arrangements for guardianship of any minor children and distribution of your assets, among other things. Taking the time to do so now can relieve your family of a significant burden and potentially costly wait in the future.
Don’t leave your future – or the future of your family – to chance, because the most important item on your list of New Year’s resolutions is peace of mind.
