The Procrastinator’s Guide to New Year’s Resolutions

Jan 12, 2024 | Autumn Brands News

We’re now into week two of 2024. Back at work, back from holidays—and back to reality. Chances are you’re thinking about making some life changes, setting new goals and committing to making better lifestyle choices. A recent Forbes Health survey of 1,000 adults examined the practice of making New Year’s resolutions and the most common goals. 48% said improved fitness was their top priority, with improved finances (38%) and improved mental health (36%) coming second and third.

The start of a new year is the perfect time to embrace a fresh start and set resolutions to improve our lives. While traditional resolutions like exercising more and eating healthier are valuable, there’s another transformative ally you might not have considered—cannabis.

Here are 10 New Year’s resolutions that are top-notch examples of how—and why—cannabis makes life better. We recommend you utilize our extensive range of premium, spray-free cannabis products cultivated with care on our Santa Babara farm to help you achieve your goals!
