Keep up your New Year’s resolutions by making some extra time

Keep up your New Year’s resolutions by making some extra time

It’s that time of year where many of us are trying to get fit, quit smoking or take up a new hobby as part of New Year’s resolutions, but a few weeks into the month of January is normally when most of us falter and cast those resolutions by the wayside.

The fitness app Strava have deemed January 19th as “Quitter’s Day”, the day that people are most likely to ditch their resolutions. One of the main reasons people give up resolutions is the struggle to find the time fit new activities into our daily routine.

But our CombiSave device, which can be easily fitted to your combi-boiler, is designed to help you grab back some of that precious time. It makes your water get hotter more quickly, so you won’t have to wait around for it to warm up — it can save a typical family household as much as 28 hours annually!

That’s a lot of extra time to have in 2020 — but what could you do with that time?

Improve your fitness

Getting in better shape has got to be one of the most common resolutions and it’s something most of us want to achieve – the NHS recommends that you do 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity every week. You could hit that target all the way through to the end of May with your newly found time!

Cook more homemade meals

Takeaways and ready meals are so convenient, but if you want to eat more healthily, making more time to cook proper meals is the answer. If it takes half an hour to whip up a decent meal, you’ll be able to cook 56 extra meals each year!

Learn a new instrument

Those of us who aren’t musically gifted look with envy at those who can effortlessly play wonderful music, but learning an instrument is certainly something that takes an awful lot of time. Still, your 28 extra hours would allow you to practice for 15 minutes every day for four months!

Read more

There are few things more relaxing than shutting the world out for a peaceful moment reading a good book. Assuming the average novel is around 350 pages in length and therefore takes about 9 hours and 30 minutes to read, you’ll have time to read three more books in 2020!

Catch up on that boxset you missed

There’s just so much good TV on these days, it’s almost impossible to keep up! Netflix, iPlayer and streaming services make it a bit easier to catch up on things — with 28 extra hours this year, you could watch all 25 episodes of Stranger Things and have just about enough time to watch Martin Scorsese’s latest film The Irishman.
