New Year’s Resolutions That Matter

Everyone seems to make the same New Year’s resolution: To get into better shape. There is nothing wrong with that but with any type of resolution it is the execution of the goal that really matters. The success of that might just depend on the type of resolutions you add to your list. Here are some New Year’s resolutions that can be a positive change for your life:

Turn Your Hobby Into A Business

Do you have a hobby that you’re good at? Maybe it is baking pies or fixing computers. Those are two good skills that could earn you some extra cash. Starting small could turn those hobbies into a profitable business. Not only would you be your own boss but you would be working at something you already enjoy doing.

Keep Your Anger In Check

How often does your blood boil over while driving? Do you get angry waiting in line at the grocery store? It could be that your anger is getting the best of you. When you get right down to it, sitting in traffic is annoying but it’s not worth getting into a road rage incident. Even if someone else cuts you off, let them go on their way. Karma will always catch up to them. When you feel anger boiling over, take a few deep breaths and think about something else. Yes, this is where imagining your ultimate happy place can make a big difference.

Learn More About Art, Music and Theatre

This is a wide world of culture out there that you might not have come close to tapping into. Let this be the year you discover new things. Take the day to go to a museum. Go to the opera for the first time. Listen to classic music. There are plenty of online resources to dive into if you’re not sure where to start.

Remove Rubbish From Your Home

Are you surrounded by rubbish in your home? That has a way of blocking positive energy from coming into your life. Doesn’t it feel better to come home after you’ve cleaned things up?

On the Outside

Curb appeal counts for a lot in an appraisal. Take care of all the regular lawn maintenance that you would normally do but step things up a bit more by putting away gardening tools and removing any dead plants. Then step back and look at the condition of your house. Is the pain peeling? Are there cracks in bricks or mortar? Are any gutters damaged? These are all important fixes you should take on but the appraisal happens.

On the Inside

You probably have a list of repairs you’ve been vowing to get to. Now is the time to get to them. You also need to look at your home through “fresh eyes.” For instance, an old TV might make everything look outdated. Of course, you’re going to have to clean up all the clutter, too. It matters.

If you have a dog, then you should consider locking them up or taking them to day care while the appraiser is in the house. You don’t know if they are a dog person or if your dog will get too excited by their arrival.

Consider the Effective Age

The effective age of your home can be impacted by things like stuck windows or broken doors. If there is a general sense of things looking old, then it might go against your value.

Promote Your Neighborhood

Along with all the features your home has to offer, you also want to promote your neighborhood. It’s a safe bet that your appraiser won’t be from your community. That is why you need to point out all the features that make your neighborhood a great place to live.

Remove the Rubbish

Along with cleaning up the clutter, you also want to make sure you’re removing any big rubbish items. These could be all kinds of things you would probably toss out when you move. Don’t wait. Instead, hire Junk King Palm Beach today to get rid of that debris. One call puts a plan into action that involves two movers and a big truck.
