Every year millions of people make New Year’s resolutions that will help define their year and make the next year just a little bit better. This year, try out some of these resolutions that will not only help yourself, but the entire planet.

New Year’s Resolution Ideas

1. Love more: Remind yourself each morning: Only love today. If this is the only resolution you make this year, you have done well. Each act you take, each person you greet, every word you say, do it with love. The love you share will radiate and spread and that is enough.

2. Be more authentic: If you dare to make a second resolution, take the time to be a more authentic you this year. Resolve to not be afraid of what other people may think of you, but just be yourself this year and you will shine.

3. Buy with your heart: Making the choice to purchase with your heart this year will fulfill your moral integrity and speak volumes to companies selling their products. To be a consumer is to have a voice. Your purchases impact the outcome. By making a commitment to buy eco-friendly, fair trade, organic, natural, local, and in general more thoughtful purchases, your resolution can change the demand for suppliers. Buying ethically sound products tells companies that this is what we want and what we will tolerate as consumers. Making the resolution to buy less but higher quality products from the food we eat to the clothes we buy also sends a positive message to sellers impacting our planet and the people all around us.

4. Eat less meat: As resolutions should be positive, I will not delve into the astoundingly disturbing state of our meat industry, but rather resolve to take the time to find out where our meat and all food consumed comes from. How is it produced? What exactly are we eating? If the food we eat is not produced in a positive light, find food that does and eat that.
