New Year resolutions – why bother?


Start on January 1

Lots of us make New Year resolutions, but hardly any of us keep them. On the whole, the reason for this, is that most New Year resolutions involve giving up things we enjoy, like chocolate…or alcohol. Worse still, they can involve us inflicting actual pain on our bodies, like going for a run or joining a gym. No wonder so many of us start a gym membership in January, and have given up before we get to February – so much nicer to be stretched out on the couch with a takeaway pizza and a glass of wine in the evening, rather than sweating on a treadmill for an hour, after a hard day at work!

Now, one way to increase the chances of success with your gym membership, is to have a gym buddy or a personal trainer. We’ve all done it – decided to go for a run, or to the gym after work. Today. After work. 6pm tonight. I’ve got my kit in the car ready to go. I’m definitely going. But then, when it gets to 6pm, it’s cold and dark and I’m hungry and tired and I just can’t be bothered, but I’ll definitely go tomorrow! Oh sure you will. But if you’re meeting someone at the gym, then it’s more difficult to bail out, because you are letting someone down. In truth, when you get there, you’ll actually enjoy it and it’s good for you and you’ll feel better about yourself for going. So the moral is, we all need support.

Another popular New Year resolution is to move house! Maybe you need to move to get into a particular school catchment area? Or nearer to the station? Or a bigger house for your growing family? A driveway would be nice, and a bigger garden. Whatever the reason, moving may be something you want to do. Once again, it’s much easier to do if you have a friend to help you.

So that’s where we come in. We are there to help you achieve your goal. In fact, we do all the heavy lifting for you, so you don’t have to! Valuation – we do that! Photographs and floorplans – that’s us! Viewings – we’ve got it covered! Negotiating with the buyer – that’s us too! Dealing with the solicitors – we love doing that!

So, if your New Year resolution is to move house in 2018, then speak to us about it – we will make it easy for you, so that you can go to the gym, or the pub and get on with your life!
