After all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the New Year is the perfect time to take stock of what you’d like to accomplish this year. Not only in your personal life, but also in other areas. Here are some New Years resolution ideas to help you upgrade your life now that 2020 is upon us.
Thank Your Supporters
Before getting to the more traditional New Years resolutions, like starting a new diet, the very first thing you should do is thank your supporters who helped your fundraising program during the holidays. They worked hard, and they certainly deserve to have their efforts be recognized!
Also, just like the contentment people feel when giving gifts, thanking your supporters will make you feel good too. By thanking your supporters, it will make them happy and therefore they’ll be more willing to continue supporting your group since they’ll feel appreciated.
Make a Bucket List, and Follow It
When you hear the term "bucket list", people often tend to think about skydiving or bungee jumping, but bucket lists don’t have to be only about extreme sports or crazy activities. It could be about traveling to a fun destination, or treating yourself to a weekend at the spa.
Whatever your preference, allow yourself to mull it over a bit, especially after the holiday season where many weeks were spent thinking about others and treating everyone in your life with all kinds of nice meals and gifts. You have the right to spoil yourself too!
Get Active, and Stay Active
Living an active lifestyle should not have to be about starving yourself with a new diet or having unrealistic weight loss goals. It can be simply to go out and have fun, especially during the long winter months.
Enjoy the cold season by doing winter activities like skiing, hiking, snowshoeing or ice fishing. Winter will pass by way more quickly (and amusingly) if you make the most out of it!
Follow Through With Your FundScrip Campaign
Perhaps the most important resolution you can make this New Year is to follow through with your FundScrip fundraising campaign.
Lead by example by being consistent about using gift cards to purchase your daily necessities, like gas and groceries. If other supporters see your dedication, they’ll be much more likely to be inspired by you, and in turn your fundraising campaign will be more likely to succeed!
We hope that we helped you select fulfilling resolutions for 2020, and we wish you an amazing New Year!
