The best substitutions for your resolutions

Forget fitness, finances and productivity. You can sort them out any old time. We think January 2021 should be dedicated to feeling good. If that means watching great TV with a takeaway and a glass of prosecco – so be it.

Are you not entertained?

Forget watching less TV. Try watching better TV. Use these IMDB guides to find the best rated TV and Movies. How many can you tick off?

OK, so maybe you do have to get off the sofa some time. But remember, this year is all about fun, so get your exercise in entertaining ways. How about going for a jog with Zombies, Run! or trying out the Ring Fit Adventure for Nintendo Switch.

Treat yourself

Don’t be miserable on the cabbage soup diet, eat great food in 2021. Tripadvisor is a great way to find the best restaurants in your area, and it’ll find you amazing takeaways too if the Tiers are still in place.

Dry January. No thanks. Why not explore the world of beers with Beer52 , join the Craft Gin Club or learn a thing or two with The Wine List. There are loads of great subscription boxes out there to satisfy any tipple craving.

Personal development

Learning something new is always a favourite resolution. And you know the best place to start….YouTube . But this time, don’t worry if you fall down a rabbit hole of funny cat videos. Embrace the awesomeness of the web and you’re sure to learn something along the way.

For the home

Have you spent too long flicking through Pinterest over Christmas and now fancy a home makeover? With the Dulux Visualizer app you can try out the colours you like before you buy.

In conclusion, don’t beat yourself up if your new year resolutions are a little more fun than usual. We all had a tough 2020 – we deserve this.
