June is the start of the mid-year. It is time we start making new resolutions that we know we can finish. 

At the start of a New Year, we all have resolutions that we look forward to accomplishing. Still, life gets busy and we often forget about those resolutions. Luckily, June 1 is the start of mid-year resolutions, and it is the perfect chance to set new goals for the rest of the year. 

According to Statista, a statistics website used for research, over half of Americans started 2021 to improve fitness and work out more. Following the goal of exercising more was the intention to lose weight. However, many that made these resolutions were not able to finish them. 

If you were someone who didn’t get the chance to finish their New Year’s resolution, now is the time for redemption. Mid-year resolutions have now become more popular than ever before. Now, you can finish the goals you made this year and find new goals to add along the way.

Five mid-year resolutions that you really need: 

1. Prioritizing your mental health: after over a year of COVID, life has become more stressful than usual. Now is the time to take care of yourself and put mental health first. 

2. Healthy lifestyle: although many talk about losing weight during the new year, most do not discuss living a healthy lifestyle. Now, you can start the mid-year off by eating healthier, having consistent workouts, getting enough sleep, and more. 

3. Organization: life can get cluttered at times, so it can often help if we have a clean space around us. By organizing your office or room, you may be able to take away the stress of finding lost items.

4. Saving money: this resolution ranked number three in 2021 resolutions that people made. It is never too late to start a savings account or checking account to deposit your paycheck in. You can even set a weekly goal of how much you plan on spending so you have more money in savings. 

5. Spending time with family: it has been a tough year for everyone to not be around their loved ones. Fortunately, the vaccine is available and we can start getting back to spending holidays, weekends, birthdays, and more with family.

You may not have finished your New Year’s resolution, but that is okay. Mid-year resolutions are now in action, and it is time to set goals that are worth accomplishing.
