new years resolutionsWell, it’s that time of year.

The days and weeks following Christmas and the holiday season mark the time when people start dreaming up their New Year’s resolutions. A new year often signifies a “new you,” with many people hoping to change their lives for the better and make decisions that strengthen them both physically and emotionally.

According to Statistics Brain, these were the top 10 New Year’s resolutions for 2015:

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Get Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
  5. Stay Fit and Healthy
  6. Learn Something New and Exciting
  7. Quit Smoking
  8. Help Others with Their Dreams
  9. Fall in Love
  10. Spend More Time with Family


Markwell Funeral Home can help you with two of these New Year’s resolutions with its pre-planning funeral arrangements. By planning a funeral ahead of time you can fulfill No. 2 and No. 3 of the most common resolutions: you can get organized and spend less money in the long run, helping defray the cost of funeral expenses to your family. Money is a big concern for families, and instead of putting this debt on them, you can help eliminate the financial stress during what is already an emotionally stressful time.

Markwell has a team dedicated to answering questions related to making these plans, and they’d be happy to speak with you at any time about pre-need insurance and funeral trusts. A funeral trust locks in an individual’s burial cost at a particular price, ensuring that it won’t change in the future.

Remember: People who make resolutions are 10 times more likely to reach their goals than people who don’t. So just by making plans, you’re already taking a step in the right direction.
