The New Year always feels like a new beginning
- a fresh start and an opportunity to spark positive change and improve one’s
lifestyle. This is why it has been a tradition to many to set their New Year’s
resolution every year. While every year always seem to be challenging and
uncertain, you can still bring in a more active approach to achieving your personal
goals by having willpower, determination, and optimism.
According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, only 8% of people who make New Year's resolutions felt that they were successful in achieving their goals while 80% fail to stick to their New Year’s goals. Some of the most common New Year’s resolution include losing weight, sticking to a healthier diet, exercising regularly, making better financial choices, quitting smoking, and spending more time with family.
This New Year gives you the chance to start over and do the things that you have failed to do last year. By knowing what you want to achieve this year, you will be able to focus on your efforts in order to fulfil them.
So, take this time to sit down and prepare a short list of the lifestyle changes you want to make this year. Make them realistic and easy for you to achieve. Remember that New Year’s resolution can only get a little bit problematic if you do it from a place of pressure or if you take it as an obligation.
If you would usually set a big New Year’s resolution, try to make it a bit smaller this time. Instead of fixing what’s wrong in your life, check on how you could be more mindful and aware of what is around you. You can also check on what you can simply do in the condo that you would want to develop as a good habit or how your condo living will help you achieve your New Year’s resolution.
We have enlisted 5 ways condo living can help you achieve your goals and change your life for the better this New Year.
1. Get Fit and Healthy
Good health is one of the best investments you can give to yourself.
We know that losing weight and getting fit are part of your checklist this year! It might not be easy at first to start an exercise and diet routine but you can always check and try out different workout programs available online. There a lot of virtual fitness classes that you can simply do in your condo unit.
Meanwhile, you may also want to check your condominium’s fitness center which is equipped with everything you need to achieve your fitness goals. At least you get access the gym from the comfort of your own condo community without the need to pay extra fees.
Vista Residences condominium projects in Manila and Quezon City are equipped with fitness centre that will help you get back in shape without the hassle of leaving the condo building.
2. Meditate and Improve your Mental Focus
It is quite challenging to focus if you are swamped with different tasks or if you are surrounded with constant distraction. With the always-connected lifestyle of the millennials, distraction is literally at your fingertips.
Stay mentally focused by practicing mindfulness which you can achieve by learning how to meditate or by simply doing quick and easy breathing exercise in your own condo unit.
3. Enjoy the Outdoors
Take some time out to enjoy some fresh air by simply lounging by the outdoor pool or by reading your favourite book by the garden area.
The Symphony Towers by Vista Residences features an outdoor pool where you can relax and breathe some fresh air.
4. Eat Healthier
It’s time to switch your diet and start eating healthy food! Quit buying fast food meals and instead, try to make your own healthy meals in the condo. Why not use your condo kitchen to whip up your best homemade meals? In need of food inspiration?

Meanwhile, if you’re the type of person who is always on-the-go, you can easily grab some healthy options from Coffee Project. They have a lot of healthy meals available for take-out.
In line with its thrust to offer convenience among its residents, Vista Residences features an AllDay Convenience Store and Coffee Project in all its condominium projects.
5. Be your Best Self either in School or Work
Life brings a lot of stresses and pressures that tend to limit one’s capability to be the best version of himself.
Don’t let these things hinder you from becoming your best self. This year, try to optimize all areas of your life to encourage your own growth and be able to focus on the goals you want to achieve.
Study or work harder and always live your life to the fullest.
You may do this by setting up a cozy study or workstation in your condo unit where you can be productive while at home. You may also want to make use of the study hall or co-working space in your condo building for your virtual classes or meetings.
New Year’s resolution is all about changing your perspective for the better. It is also about renewal and redevelopment to be the best version of yourself. Remember that when setting your New Year’s resolution, make your goals realistic and attainable and focus on the things that matter to you most. Maximize your time and everything that surrounds you to be able to hit these goals. Have you finished goal-setting yet for this year? We wish you the best of luck in making them happen!
