Happy New Year! The headaches of the late night frivolities are passing, the “did I really do that” memories are fading and you’ve probably already broken most of the resolutions you’ve made. However, help is at hand. We went in search of the top resolutions and have found some competitions to help you stay on track.
1. Diet & Lose Weight
If you’re hoping to shed a few pounds in 2012 then a trip to Pick Me Up Magazine might help get you started. They have 51 Keep The Weight Loss Going Slimpods from Thinking Slimmer up for grabs. If you’re thinking of joining a gym then Swiftcover have 20 Fitness First monthly passes on offer. We’re not sure about the closing date for this one! For more healthy exercise type prizes take a look at Healthy Magazine.
2. Get More Organised
If you want to organise your time better in 2012 then make your way to Twinings before the 6th January. They have an Anya Hindmarch diary to give away in a Facebook competition. It’s worth Â£125. Mind you, at that price you’d probably not want to use it! Perhaps a smartphone will be more useful? In fact you can combine resolution 1 and 2 by entering the Total Greek Yoghurt competition on Facebook. Your healthy recipe could win an iPhone 4S. Sadly, it’s a voting comp!
3. Enjoy Life To The Fullest
Are you hoping to try something new in 2012? How about sky diving? The National Lottery are giving away a charity skydive in their latest Facebook prize draw plus they’ll donate Â£1500 to the charity of your choice! This one ends 12th January. If you don’t fancy throwing yourself out of a plane then how about sitting in a basket attached to a large balloon? Superdrug have a hot air balloon experience waiting to be won. This also closes on 12th January.
4. Learn Something New
Have you resolved to learn something new this year? How about a new language? Make your way to Good to Know again before the 12th January and enter their competition to win a “10-week evening language course in either Spanish, French, Italian or German at a local learning centre”. If you fancy a new hobby for 2012 then why not try photography? Shortlist are giving away a Nikon 1 V1 camera worth Â£900. Such a prize won’t be a bad way to kick off a new interest! This closes 11th January.
5. Quit Smoking
We couldn’t find any competitions aimed at helping people quit smoking (although we think there have been some in the past). The best we could find was a free quit kit from The NHS. You can order it online or pick it up from a local chemist.
Of course, the best resolution you can make is to join Loquax in 2012 where you’ll find links to loads more competitions!
