2020's Most Achievable Resolutions According to Total Guide to

Whether it's learning a new skill or working on your six pack, tens of thousands of people all over Swindon will be making New Year's resolutions this January. In a bid to help you achieve your goals in 2020, we've short-listed some of the most popular resolutions and how to achieve them.

1. Exercise More

One of the most popular New Year's Resolutions is to lose weight, get fit, eat right and exercise more. If you plan on making a positive change and sticking to it, remember to be realistic, plan ahead and track your progress.

Above all don’t beat yourself up and keep trying! Give yourself small, measurable targets and do your best to stay motivated. Why not sign up to a race from DB Max to give you something to train for? If you need some professional advice, T2 Fitness has all the answers!

David Lloyd will let you do a trial workout so you can be certain it’s the right place for you before you sign up.

2. Revamp your Wardrobe

There's no better time than January to sort through your wardrobe and treat yourself to some new items of clothing.

From new party outfits to refreshing what you wear to work, shop all of the latest must-haves at The Brunel Swindon. 

Revamping your wardrobe doesn't just have to be the clothes you were in your leisure time but what about updating and creating new workwear for 2020! Giving your employees a fresh start to the new year with fabulous clothing from OHM Clothing.

3. Do Something for Charity

Surely giving up your time is just as satisfying as giving up chocolate?

If doing something for charity is one of your resolutions, then why not get involved and make 2019 the year that you fundraise or volunteer for Prospect Hospice or help Jessie May.

Whether it’s supporting the care of patients and families at the Hospice or fundraising to generate the money needed to support care, Prospect can’t achieve all that they do without the help of volunteers.

Whatever you decide to do, have fun and good luck!

4. Try a New Hairstyle

New Year, new hair! Whether you fancy trying a new hairstyle or reinventing your look for 2020, Miller and Holland will be able to help. 

January is the perfect time to switch up your look. After all, what could be more be more exciting than a new look to match your cheery new outlook? Therefore, Hair by Tanya could help you go into 2020 in style!

If you're worried about taking the snip, change doesn't have to mean a new hairstyle; it can also mean a change in hair care! Check out Karoliina Saunders Hair Designs New Year Hair Resolutions here.

Remember to only apply for relevant positions, do your research and keep your spirits up - sometimes it's better to find a new job by searching for a great company rather than a position. 

8. Make More Time for Friends

As our lives get busier, quality time with friends tends to move further down our priority lists. Tight schedules and endless responsibilities, can make it seem nearly impossible to make time for our nearest and dearest - but it doesn't have to be that way! Make 2019 the year that this all changes. 

There's an abundance of great places to catch-up with friends in Swindon, so there's really no excuse for not making the effort.

Casual dining hotspots include Stanton House Hotel, Swindon Marriott Hotel, and Jurys Inn or if you fancy somewhere a little more special and Chiseldon House boasts some of the best a la carte menus in around. 

9. Take up a New Hobby

You're never too old to learn a new skill or hobby. Hobbies may differ from person to person but they're still fantastic ways to have fun, relieve stress and make new friends! 

Here are just a couple of suggestions of new things to try in Swindon; water sports at South Cerney Outdoor, tennis at Better's Delta Tennis Centre or how about an evening course at New College? You can study a range of topics including a new language, creative writing or dance. 

10. Walk or Cycle to Work

Start the New Year off right with a resolution to make the world a greener place! Not only can cycling or walking to work improve your well-being but it will have a positive effect on the environment too.  

11. Training Opportunities
