New Year’s Resolutions from U-Haul Team Members

Dec 29, 2015

As 2015 comes to an end, it is a good time to reflect on the year and make some resolutions  for the new year.  Positive thoughts and resolutions make the new year hopeful and capable of anything.  Of course, resolutions are difficult to keep and of course, assessments of your life should be done throughout the year, but there is something about the calendar date rolling to the first day of a new year.  Something special that makes all changes possible and you capable of achieving them.  Below are some of the New Year’s resolutions from U-Haul Team Members for the upcoming year.  Use them as inspiration to make some positive changes in your new year.

  1. Get back into yoga.Traveling more for a New Year's Resolution.
    I use to do yoga classes and was pretty good at it. I stopped doing yoga for about a year and a half now and can feel how it’s taken a toll on my posture, mental health and just overall health. One of my resolutions it to start taking regular yoga classes again and build my way back up to expert level. I know this will balance my stress levels and give me more energy so I don’t have to rely on caffeine so much!
  2. Learn to relax a little.
    I’m on-the-go all the time. I’m naturally a restless person but it’s not exactly good for my health in the long run so I will be finding new ways to unwind and relax.
  3. Cook more, go out less.
    I’m a techie and a wannabe traveler. Two of the most expensive passions to have, so I will be making a solid effort to cook at home more and not go out to eat as much.

Last year I gave up regular soda, this year I am giving up diet soda. I have not had one since the day after Thanksgiving.

I resolve to spend at least 10 minutes every night, or every other night if I am being realistic, to being thankful for the good things in my life.  I am lucky or #blessed to have so many great things in my life.  I think I can spend more time to focus on being grateful and less time worrying about the things that are not quite where I want them yet.  Applying extra positivity to my life may help me get there quicker or at least help me enjoy the ride!

TTake adventurous trips his upcoming year I plan to spend more time with my family and maybe take a few weekend trips to some adventurous locations. 2016 brings us one step closer to the next decade, with all this new media and technology. It’s an exciting time, so no to resolutions and yes to making goals! I like to play soccer too, but not those kind of goals.

My New Years resolution is to lead a healthier life! This includes working out and eating right. I also want to find a new hobby that I can do in my free time.

  2. When there’s time, read more and put down my phone.

In 2016 I resolve to make it happen.

So many times when you want to do something new or different, doubts ruin everything. It could be self-consciousness, the fear of losing, or someone else making you feel like your ideas are crazy; but in the end it comes down to your choice – do you listen to the doubts or make it happen?

For example, when Leonard Shoen founded U-Haul, there could have been all sorts of “impossibilities” in his head, but he looked past the doubts and ended up making an incredible company that has changed people’s lives for over 70 years.

Consider the concept of forming a business where you give a client your hand-made equipment, and then send them off to another state with every chance that you may never see them again. Seems pretty crazy, especially in 1945 when there were no computers, tracking systems, or other modern technology we have today to foster said idea. Nonetheless, Leonard looked past all that, took it one step at a time, and focused on how he could make it happen.

So, long story short – in 2016 I resolve to take a page out of Leonard Shoen’s book: to focus on the idea or task at hand, find a solution and then proceed to make it happen.

With resolutions like these, there is no doubt that the Team Members at U-Haul will do great things this year.  Cheers to all the accomplishments in the last year, a round of applause to those making changes and hope to all for the New Year and all its possibilities!  Happy New Year!
