Have you made any new year's resolutions?

Don't get overwhelmed with huge ambitions for 2017 - break your goals down to make them achievable.

New Year's resolution: Eat healthier
One small change: Try new fruits and vegetables 

Step away from the dieting book, put down the juicer - and instead, fill your fridge with brightly coloured fresh fruit and veg.

Experiment by trying one new fruit or vegetable a week, and your diet will become increasingly varied.

One easy way to do this is to sign up to a fruit and veg box scheme and have an array of produce delivered to your door every week.

New Year's resolution: Get fitter
One small change: Walk for 30 minutes every day

Getting outside and power-walking for 30 minutes a day can greatly benefit your health and wellbeing - plus, you can save money on gym memberships by getting out in the fresh air instead of a sweaty gym.

Schedule your walk in the morning, at lunchtime or in the evening, whichever suits your schedule and lifestyle, and you're more likely to keep it up. 

New Year's resolution: Save money
One small change: Put aside £20 a week

Putting aside £20 a week is a realistic way to save money for something special.

Whether it’s for next Christmas, a special holiday or towards the deposit for a new home, you’ll end the year £1,040 richer than when you started. 

New Year's resolution: Take some time out for yourself
One small change: Do something you enjoy once a week

Take care of number one in 2017 by ensuring you take regular time out to look after your mental health.

The Danes seem to have this down to an art through their practice of Hygge, which encourages enjoyment of the simple things in life.

So whether it’s sitting down with a cup of tea and a good book, enjoying a relaxing bath, taking a yoga class or getting out in the garden, do one thing a week for yourself.
