When it comes time to make New Year’s resolutions, we often focus on self-improvement: losing weight, having more fun, getting organized.
But don’t forget that it’s important to do things that make you happy.
That’s why you should make a resolution this year to have more fun and do more of the things that make you happy. Maybe, that means going to more concerts, playing piano, guitar or ukulele and singing in choruses.
Others may want to see move movies, read more books, take more hikes in beautiful areas, ski more or visit more art museums. Or maybe you just want to spend more time with your family, walking around your neighborhood or playing board games with the kids. We have some suggestions of ways to have more fun for less money all year:
