New Year's Resolutions to Help You Thrive in 2022

New Years Resolutions

As we look towards the new year, we want to help you thrive in 2022. New Year’s Resolutions are a great way to start intentional goals. These resolutions can change your behavior throughout the rest of the year.

New Year’s resolutions can often mean having goals that last for a short time. It is important to create resolutions that are personal to you and what you want this year to look like. Resolutions are not supposed to be impossible or cause guilt; they should be goals that are exciting. We have fun tips and suggestions on what kinds of resolutions you can make!


It is important to find an exercise plan you enjoy and that fits well into your schedule. Exercise helps people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) with motor and non-motor symptoms. There are many options of what kinds of exercises you can try. Participating in a fun workout can help you enjoy your time and strengthen your body.

Nutrition is an important part of your physical and mental health. Good nutrition can help manage Parkinson’s and promote overall well-being. It is also fun to try out new recipes and change up what you eat.

Practicing self-care can be a challenge to incorporate in your daily life but creating a self-care plan is a great way to start. A self-care plan looks like a personalized schedule to enjoy what brings you rest. Self-care can promote mindfulness and resiliency throughout the year.

There are many ways to get plugged into your community. It can be helpful to have people around you for support through the year. In times of stress, a community can remind you that you are not alone. The Parkinson’s Foundation has many resources for you to connect with a strong support system.

There are also many opportunities to serve your community. Find your local Parkinson’s Foundation chapter and the events coming up. Volunteering and fundraising can create a positive impact on your community while helping you feel connected to those around you.
