It’s kind of funny that I’m the one writing about New Year’s resolutions, considering that I haven’t made one myself in, oh, probably ten years. It’s not that I don’t like resolutions or anything, it’s just that I find most tend to get pushed to the side. In my experience I’ve found that as we discover that a new year it does not mean it suddenly becomes any easier to reinvent ourselves.
In reflecting on it while writing this post, I’ve realized that perhaps part of the problem with resolutions is our over-ambition mixed with perpetual vagueness. While it’s nice to make resolutions such as “I’m going get the body I’ve always wanted this year,” the resolution doesn’t cover how the goal will be reached, and it doesn’t leave much room for appreciation of the small milestones.
My point is, if we want to make resolutions that we can really keep, we might want to start thinking smaller and more specific. More along the lines of, “I’ve always want to learn how to play golf, so I’ve decided to sign up for once a week lessons during the summer.”
And with that, I’ve decided to list some of my favorite items from the Swap.com Market that can help you keep your New Year’s resolution. Just remember, whatever you resolve, make sure your goals attainable and you’re sure to have a better time!
Looking to learn how to swing the clubs this year? Chances are, you’re going to need as many new golf balls as you can get the first few times out. So why not swap for as many as you can? That way you won’t be too sour when you lose a few on the front nine. Just watch out for those nasty water hazzards!
Maybe you’ve finally decided it’s time learn how to rock a guitar. If so, check out adamchapelle’s acoustic guitar . There is never a bad time to learn a new instrument, and this item is described as a wonderful starter guitar. If you’re interested though, you better hurry, a couple of offers have already been made!
Trying to get healthier? Why not give fitness coaching a try! Yes, yes I know I’ve already mentioned health themed New Year’s Resolution items before, but that’s just how important health and fitness really are. And with Swap.com team member TeaAddictedGeek you’ll get personalized services based on your goals, be it losing weight, maintaining your physique or gaining muscle.
If you’ve always dreamed of learning how to snowboard, swapper Soleilgod has a great Burton snowboard availble for swap, and there’s never been a better time to start. Or maybe you already know how and have just resolved to get out on the slopes more this year. Either way, make an offer on this brand new, limited edition board and get started on that resolution!
Who doesn’t love a good bike ride? So get back on the road with this 10 Speed Bike. If you’ve resolved to get back into biking, or to cut down on your car usage, this is the perfect bike for you. Though used, the bike has been maintained regularly and would make a great bike to travel to and from work. I might just make an offer on this one myself to cut down on my commute into Swap.com HQ.
