The New Year is just a few days away, and as we welcome 2023, most of us dare to take steps to improve. Every year, many people take the time to have a list of New Year’s resolutions they want to accomplish. These resolutions primarily reflect their dreams, goals, or habits they wish to change or improve.
While most New Year’s resolutions are not accomplished throughout the year, it is still great to see individuals trying to make an effort and redefine their lifestyles. Like everybody else, condo owners can also have their New Year’s resolution to improve condo living. Here are some habits you can change in living in your vertical village.
What is a New Year’s Resolution?
A new year’s resolution is a personal objective you “make” to change your lifestyle and behavior. This can be anything from healthier eating habits to quitting smoking, starting a fitness routine, saving more money, or anything you wish to do for the rest of the year and moving forward.
Maintaining your New Year’s resolution can be more challenging because even if you do everything right, something will get in your way by the end of the year. The main challenge in having a New Year’s resolution is having the discipline to stick to the changes you are trying to make.
The best New Year’s resolutions for condo owners
It’s time to declutter your own space
This 2023, condo owners should enjoy the privilege of having a more comfortable space by removing all the junk and unnecessary stuff inside the cabinet or storage area. At first, it may feel overwhelming but always trust the process as it gets easier over time. You will see the progress as you move along.
Decluttering your home and taking care of the mess is a way to better care for yourself. You may also declutter your condo with the help of a professional decluttering and organizing service, or you can ask a friend to help you with it. Once the decluttering is done, you will immediately feel a sense of relief and relaxation. This year, you should promise yourself that you are going to schedule a decluttering day every month.
Grow your Emergency Fund for your Unit
Building your emergency fund is one of the most important things you can do as a condo owner. It can help you to avoid having to sell a condo unit if something goes wrong, whether that means losing your job, getting injured, or otherwise going through some financial hardship.
An emergency fund is a savings account that you can use to cover unexpected expenses on your condo unit; in the event of an emergency, it’s better to have funds ready for immediate consumption. If you’re considering building an emergency fund, you must do it right the first time.
One of the easiest ways to build up your emergency fund is to sell your stuff. After decluttering your old junk, sell them online and make sure that all the proceeds will go to your Emergency Funds. You may also use this to pay your condo fees and avoid late fees. Your condo’s emergency fund is an essential aspect of your financial goals.
Whether you want to build money for yourself or your family, knowing how to make an emergency fund is vital. You can quickly save a big chunk of change with the right savings and techniques.
Conserve your water
Water conservation is the careful use and preservation of the water supply, including the quantity and quality of water utilized. In addition to saving money on your condo’s utility bill, water conservation helps minimize the effects of drought. By reducing the water we use and conserving it, we can help save it for future generations. Here are some ways to save water:
- Make sure your outdoor plants have all the water they need, and if you live in a southern climate, keep them watered during the summer. Watering early morning and late evening can also help.
- Tighten the gaskets on your faucet aerators by turning them counterclockwise until they are tight, and tighten them with their tool included.
- Do not let dishes sit in the sink for more than a few minutes
- Run the sink for a few seconds after turning them off
- Take care of leaks
- Install water-saving appliances
Do random acts of kindness in the community
You can do many things out of kindness to connect within the condo community of unit owners, from simply picking up litter to baking something for your neighbor. Small acts of kindness, care, and consideration would ripple effects on people and places beyond your community.
It is like a domino effect in which one will follow the other. Imagine living in a society full of kindness and care. It will be a better place to live. Random acts of kindness are small but meaningful gifts to those around us.
You can make a significant impact by doing something for someone else, whether it’s making someone smile, comforting someone in grief, or simply saying “hello” to a stranger. Be abiding by the saying, “Treat others as you would like to be treated.”
Be Active and Stay on the Move
One New Year’s Resolution that is often on everybody’s bucket list is to get active and start exercising. Though most individuals often need help keeping their word regarding this resolution, this should be the year for you.
It is true that hitting the gym or visiting your local fitness center can be a hassle. However, luckily for you, staying active and getting fit can be done in the comfort of your own condo home because most condo developments have a fitness gym as one of their amenities. Thus, there are no reasons to skip a healthier lifestyle next year.
Moreover, getting and staying active also has its benefits, such as the following:
- Improve your overall body fitness
- Boost your energy and stamina
- Strengthen your immune system
- Helps you relax and sleep better at night
- Improve and increase self-confidence
