JUSTIN New Years resolutions are a tradition that many embrace but few stick with as the year progresses. The most successful resolutions are often those that make the most positive impacts on peoples lives, such as improving their overall health or altering their career paths. Resolutions that save men and women money also are likely to prove successful. Though saving money might not be the primary goal of many resolutions, savings can be to make the following changes. QUIT SMOKING Many people resolve to quit smoking to improve their overall health, as smoking has been linked to a number of health problems, including cancer. But quitting smoking who smoke a pack of cigarettes each day can expect to spend several thousand dollars a year on their habits.The cost of a pack of cigarettes depends on where a smoker lives, but a smoker who pays $10 per pack and smokes one pack each day will spend $3,650 in a year. Quit ting smoking can put that money back in your pocket, potentially lower your insurance costs (the National Associa tion of Health Underwriters estimates that smokers will spend 50 percent more on life insurance policies than nonsmokers) and improve your overall health considerably. EAT RIGHT AND EXERCISE. Making exercise a part of your weekly routine is another way to save money over the long haul. According to the National Association of Health Under writers, men and women who combine a healthy diet with exercise three times per week can decrease their prescrip tion medications costs by 70 percent and their overall medical costs by 30 percent. Exercise greatly reduces a persons risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Each of those conditions is not only unhealthy but costly as well. But each also is largely preventable when men and women adhere to a healthy diet and exercise regularly. ELIMINATE DEBT. Debt costs money, and research has shown that debt can negatively affect quality of life. The longer men and women carry balances on their credit cards, the more interest theyre paying on those debts. The dawn of a new year marks a great time to resolve your debt issues. If your debts are substantial, contact your credi tors to discuss a payment plan that may help lower your obligations. Some credit card companies are willing to work with cardholders who are overwhelmed by their debts. Such companies may devise payment schedules that keep interest from accruing on existing debts so long as cardholders make predetermined minimum payments on time each month. START SAVING MORE MONEY Resolving to set more money aside for savings can save men and women money over the long haul. When they have more money in savings accounts, men and women are more capable of handling emergencies or other unfore seen expenses on their own rather than relying on credit cards or lenders to help them make it through rough patches. Credit cards or bank loans come with interest charges, which will only make emergencies more expensive. If you are in a position to handle such emergencies on your own, then you wont feel the needed to borrow or take on debt to handle such situations. These resolutions can save you some money
