I couldn't resist the chance to help people accomplish their New Year's Resolutions this year.
Obviously the resolutions listed in the top 10 resolutions list are things people think about all year round. So the fact that they're labeled resolutions is moot.
The article is for everyone around the world who wants to make significant life changes, but don't know where to start.
I have researched and found what readers, and Google, consider to be the best go-to blogs to help them achieve their goals.
I hope the links to the blogs listed here will help everyone who reads them.
1. Lose Weight
I found an article on Healthline titled The 20 Best Weight Loss Blogs of 2013.
In this blog post, the writers researched and listed 20 bloggers who have successfully lost weight. They have also maintained it, and share their success stories and advice.
There is a wide range of topics in the article, from healthy cooking, to running, and everything else in between.
If you're struggling with your weight, you'll want to read this article for sure. Even if you're just trying to be more active and not lose weight you'll find a lot of value in this article.
2. Getting Organized
I found a blog called Life Well Lived.
They have an article titled 35 Resources to Help Get You Organized.
The Author of the post, Alicia, lists her favorite resources to get organized. She talks about various places she goes to for products, apps, books, magazines, online stores, and catalogs.
Whatever you need to organize, online or offline, I'm sure you'll find what you need in her post.

3. Spend Less, Save More
I found a very interesting blog called Wealth Gathering. On the website there is a post titled Simple Saving: The No-Budget Way to Spend Less and Save More.
In this article the blogger talks about why budgets don't work, and offers another solution. I think the idea presented is an interesting way to replace using a budget.
I can see myself having more success with it, because I am horrible at sticking to a budget.
On the blog there is also a lot of other financial information, such as how to get your credit score, how to roll over your 401(k), and where to put your money.
I'm sure you will find something on this blog that will help you spend less, and save more.
Mindset and state of mind are important to enjoy life to the fullest.
It's our stresses and daily concerns that take away from our enjoyment because we let them take us over.
Not sweating the small stuff, which is mentioned on the tinybuddha blog, does wonders for our mental health.
4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
I found two blogs, each with 30 ways to live life to the fullest. They are similar in their themes, but have different suggestions.
Their main idea is to savor every second of the day, and they show you ways to do this.
The first blog is Health.com. They talk about doing yoga, releasing negativity, and taking time out of the day to be silly, or act like a kid again.
The second blog is called Tinybuddha. The writer, Lori Deschene, suggests things such as, doing what you love, focusing on living life to the fullest, and staying healthy.
If getting more fulfillment out of life is on your list of things to do this year, you'll really appreciate these two blogs.

5. Staying Fit and Healthy
I found a blog called Budget Life that I'm really excited to share, because they have an article titled, The 40 Top Blogs for Staying Healthy and Fit.
Their article is broken down into three categories:
- Health News and Information: 10 blogs related to different health aspects, and one talks about genes and heredity.
- Diet and Nutrition: 15 bloggers with different backgrounds, including fitness enthusiasts, nutritionists, and vegans.
- Fitness and Exercise: 15 bloggers passionate about yoga, running and weight training.
There is something for everyone who is trying to stay fit and healthy in this article.

6. Learn Something Exciting
For this New Year's Resolution I thought in order to learn something exciting, it would be a great idea to find your passions first. This is a pretty general topic so what is exciting for one person would be boring for another.
Lifehack, one of the best blogs on the internet, has an excellent article titled How to Find Your Passion.
They have 9 suggestions for you to find your passions. Although the article is directed towards changing careers, the suggestions can also be used for personal excitement.
7. Quit Smoking
I found a blog called Quicknet that is full of information on how to quit smoking.
A lot of their posts have 3 ways to.... So they're articles aren't overwhelming, but contain a lot of useful information.
They also have articles on different ways to quit smoking.
I'm sure if you're serious about quitting, this blog will get you on your way to not smoking.
8. Help Others in Their Dreams
During my research for this resolution topic I came across a beautiful article titled 100 Dollars, 100 Acts of Service that I just had to share.
If you want to help others this year, this article will definitely motivate you, and give you amazing ideas.
It is about a young man who found 100 dollars and set out to make 100 people happy. He shares different things he did to bring happiness to others. As well, the article gives suggestions for everyday service to others.
This young man started a blog titled 101 Happy People Project, and he talks about what he did with the money.
9. Fall in Love
When I first saw this one on the list, I thought it would be a challenge to find a blog. But to my surprise it was fairly easy.
This is a broad topic, and since I didn't know if it is men, women, or both looking for love. I wasn't sure how to go about it.
The best advice I could find that wasn't gender specific was on the Psychology Today blog.
They have high quality articles on topics such as intimacy, exercises to improve dating, and myths that keep us from finding love.
This blog will be beneficial to help you find out more about yourself, its easier for you to define what you're looking for.
10. Spend More Time With Family
When I searched resolution #10, spend more time with family, fellow Hubber Hope Wilbanks was number one on the search engine result page, out of 168,000,000 results. So I thought it must be the most popular content on the internet for this topic.
Hope's tips are easy to use and you can start using them today. They include committing to your children, spending extra time with family, and ways to have more quality family time.
Update: "The article you are looking for is not published right now. Please try again later."
When I searched this topic again this article appears to be the most popular article - 9 Ways to Maximize Family Time.
We have now reached the end of the top 10 New Year's Resolutions for 2014.
I hope you found what you were looking for. If you have a top blog to share for the topics listed here please don't forget to share them in the comments.
You know how hard it is to make changes to your life, so readers need all the help they can get.
