Can’t think of a New Year’s resolution? We got you covered



The making of resolutions at the start of a new year is ages old. Historians say the practice dates back 4,000 years to the ancient Babylonians who promised their gods they would return borrowed objects and pay off their debts.

We know some of our readers struggle to come up with resolutions aside from the usual ones dealing with losing weight and saving money so we’ve dreamed up a few of our own.

Feel free to adopt some or all and we hope that 2018 is a terrific year for everyone.
