A Resolution a Day Keeps the Negativity Away

December 29, 2014 1 Comment

Happy New Year Monkey Mat Family! With 2015 arriving so soon, the daunting question of “what are your New Years resolutions?” is just around the corner.

While setting large goals for the New Year is a great way to make positive changes in your life, it can also be overwhelming and difficult to stay motivated. Therefore, we would like to propose a different way of adding positivity to your life! A 365-day resolution jar!

The jar encompasses 365 positive challenges or goals on strips of paper and you simply pick one out each morning before you start your day. The goals can be big or small; it is all up to you! If you still want to work towards a large goal, adjust the daily goals to be specific to that big goal. Then the jar acts as a daily reminder/motivator to keep you focused on that finish line. Not only will this help make you feel happier throughout the year, it will also be something fun and exciting that can help change up the daily routine!


  1. Find a jar or container
  2. Decorate it to your hearts desire
  3. Write down your goals on small strips of paper
  4. Fill the jar!
  5. Each day pick out one goal or challenge (preferably before you start your day)
  6. Enjoy adding positivity to your life each day!

Here are some of our ideas for the goals that you can set! Just remember, the possibilities are endless!

  • Give a stranger a compliment
  • Tell a friend why you are thankful for them
  • Pay for a stranger’s coffee
  • Go for a run
  • Call an old friend
  • Learn about something new
  • Take your monkey mat to the park and enjoy some fresh air J

We at Monkey Mat hope all of you have had the best holidays and will have an even better New Year!
