How to Work Towards Your New Year’s Resolutions

New year, new me! New Year’s resolutions – we all make them and try our very best to stick to them throughout the year. Unfortunately, sometimes some of our New Year’s resolutions only last a few months, a few weeks, or a few days even before we find ourselves back in our old routine and way of living. We at XYZ Storage want to help you reach your New Year’s resolutions and stick with them for 2022.


Spend time reflecting on the goals you set for yourself in 2021 and which ones you were able to achieve and which ones you weren’t, and why. This will help you learn what could work for you this year and what wouldn’t. During this time, you also want to decide what New Year’s resolutions you would like to set for yourself this time around (don’t be afraid to think big)!

Holding Yourself Accountable

When setting your New Year’s resolutions, you want to hold yourself accountable as these are commitments that you are making to yourself at the start of the year. Need help doing so? Tell your friends and family about your New Year’s resolutions so they can help hold you accountable. For example, if your goal is to work out three times a week and drink eight glasses of water every day, voice; that to yourself and them. It also doesn’t hurt to have the extra support and motivation on your journey to becoming a healthier and stronger version of yourself!

Self-Storage Can Help Too

Self-storage can provide a ton of support to those of you who are, looking to be more organized this year. 

To Downsize

Did you finally come to the realization or decision that it is about time to downsize? Maybe you no longer need the extra space after all of your adult children have moved out and are looking for a smaller home that requires less maintenance. Chances are you have a lot of clutter and belongings that you have accumulated over the years. Self-storage can help you store your belongings temporarily while you move or perhaps for a long period since you might not have the space for it anymore.

To Live a Minimalist Lifestyle

Decluttering is a great starting point to live a minimalist lifestyle. However, perhaps you have plenty of sentimental items you cannot get yourself to let go of. Self-storage can be beneficial to help store those belongings you no longer use or need around the house but would love to keep.

To Be Healthy and Active

With gyms currently closed in Ontario, and if one of your goals was to be more active and work out but have no space in your condo or house for a work-out area or home gym, you should consider storing your belongings in a self-storage unit for the time being. Check out our blog post Making Space for a Home Gym if you are interested in doing so.

We Thank You

We want to give a huge thank you to all of our valued customers, exceptionally hard-working employees, and outstanding partners for an amazing 2021 year. At XYZ Storage, we understand that your life is big and we want to help you make space for it. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and be safe! As a friendly reminder, please adhere to our safety COVID-19 guidelines when visiting our self-storage facilities to not only protect yourself but our staff members and other guests as well. We’re in this together!
