The best New Year’s Resolutions for 2017

The new year is upon us so use it as an opportunity for a fresh start and to make it an even better year than the last. If you haven’t already it’s not a bad idea to set yourself some goals to achieve in 2017. Here are some of the best new year’s resolutions you should consider as we enter another year. Many of these resolutions involve getting off the couch and heading on outside to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. However we strongly recommend that in doing so you still take precautions to stay safe from the sun.


You’ve told yourself a thousand times that it’s something that you want to give a go but just keep putting it off. It’s something you don’t even have to spend a fortune doing it but the benefits are priceless. Simply get out a yoga mat in your backyard and allocate yourself time to breather. Meditating helps improve your mood, reduce stress and anxiety and starting now will really set you on track for a great year. Set yourself up under a shade sail so you can soak in the fresh air without damaging your skin.

Install a Shade Sail

As a shade sail company, this might be a little biased but honestly now is the perfect time to install the shade you’ve always wanted and needed. One of the best things about shade sails is that they benefit your home all year round. They provide shade from the sun in summer as well as protect you from rain and falling objects (leaves) in the winter.


We’ve all heard this one before but really try this year to actually make this happen. If you’ve got a shaded outdoor area this becomes even easier because you won’t even have to leave the house. You can workout in the comfort of your own backyard so you have time to get other tasks done. The benefits of keeping fit are endless, it helps prevent a range of health problems and puts you in a better mood overall.

Boost Your Confidence

This isn’t going to happen in a matter of seconds but if you persuade yourself to be happier in your own skin it can definitely happen over time. Do the things you love and appreciate how amazing you are. You can do this by picking up things you used to love doing whether it’s making time to read or talking to old friends. Whatever it may be, it’s important that we put our happiness first so that we can feel good about ourselves.


Yes sleeping is a way of life so how can it be a resolution? The reason for this is because so many of us aren’t getting the amount of sleep we actually need. Make it a priority this year to get enough sleep so you can feel energised in the morning and therefore be ready for the day ahead. Say less to TV and phones and more to nourishing your body by giving it the rest it deserves.

Wishing you all the best for the amazing year ahead! The only person that can make these resolutions happen is you so make it a priority.
