Resolutions to Consider Article Template

It’s the perfect time of the year to pick up this article template.

Millions of people each year make New Year’s resolutions to themselves, their family and peers. Typically, these resolutions are undertaken to make lifestyle changes, reform bad habits and start a journey towards self-improvement.

As this year comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to share your own ideas for resolutions to consider by writing new, high-quality articles.

Your niche and the expert advice you have play an important role in articles you write on the theme of resolutions. For example, you may write articles related to these common New Year’s resolutions:

  • Developing Healthy Habits
  • Seeking Further Education
  • Improving Your Financial Situation
  • Giving More (e.g. volunteer to help others)
  • Cutting Stress
  • Changing Lifestyle (e.g. more independence)

… or any other resolution you’ve come up with.

Think of your niche and the advice you can give to people on how to establish, work through and execute their own resolutions. Then, use that advice to write and submit your own well-timed “Resolutions to Consider” article.

Steps for Writing an Article Around Resolutions to Consider:

  1. Pick a Resolution/Set of Resolutions – Identify resolutions related to your niche that’ll help others improve their own lives. They may be things you’ve tried yourself, you’re committing to now or you plan on trying later. If you have experiences with whatever resolutions you share, it can be really valuable to share your own challenges and/or triumphs. If you have a few ideas, you can turn them each into their own article.
     
  2. Write a Title and Introduction – Write a title and introduction that describes the area of life that requires the resolution you’ve chosen. The introduction should make it clear exactly why your article is important. That may include drawing from personal experiences.
     
  3. Describe the Resolution – Next, explain your resolution idea and why it works. This section can be somewhat brief because the execution of the resolution is explained in the next step.
     
  4. Make a List – List steps or ways to ensure your readers can follow through on the resolution. Lifestyle resolutions are easy to come up with, but they’re even easier to give up on if we don’t set ground rules or have ways to check up on ourselves. It may be a list of goals or steps in a process. Just make it clear exactly what needs to be done.
     
  5. Recap the Resolution – Recap your resolution idea and, once again, explain why it’ll help. Give the reader a feeling of security that they’ll be able to follow through with your suggestions.

Remember that these types of articles have seasonal significance. There will be more interest in them during the beginning of each new year. That doesn’t mean they completely lose their value during the rest of the year. Leave out dates and other time-sensitive info and the articles will stay evergreen.

Use this template today to write your next set of high-quality, original articles for more traffic back to your website or blog. Also, leave a comment to share your own resolutions or template ideas.

When I opened the email, my first thought was “oh please, not another “resolutions” article!

I’m glad I visited, though, because I’ve actually learned a few new things and already have some ideas rolling around in my head.

thanks!

Excellent!
The introduction should even go beyond describing why the article is important. It should highlight the issue/problem/pain spot/challenge/struggle and what kind of mistakes people make when they encounter this.
I’ve yet to write an article for EzineArtiles, but here’s what I do for my monthly e-news: I highlight the issue/etc & the why and then give a brief overview. The e-news then links to an article on my website with the solution – often with lists.

Truly before the bedtime, yesterday, I wrote a list
with things that I want to improve in 2011. In the middle night I woke up and repeated in my mind all the written points.
Today in the morning, when I opened the computer I found, as the first thing, your article with exact the same points suggestions. What this means?
With the difference that in my list I put a supplementary point connected to general renovation of my home.
And coincidences like this one, happened in the past too.
How you explain it?
I have also to add that I learned a lot from your style to write about a subjet.
Thank you for all and
Happy New Year to you and your family.

My New Years Resolution is to try and stay calm when writing. I need to take a break when I become so angry about the way people lie to our faces. They know, and we know, they are lying to us, but they just don’t care what people think. It’s as if we are a herd they try to placate a little now and then. I must take the time to stay calm and back away from the keyboard to reorganize my thoughts and cool down. I can lose the thread of thought and wander into other subjects. I can be somewhat hot headed and volitile. Politics is what drives me and my country is precious to me. My grandchildren are growing up into the mess we have allowed to happen and it is up to each and every one of us to try and put right. Thank You

Indeed, what a perfect topic for a Resolution article in the “Anger Management Category” – cannot wait to read it, because it sounds as if you have some first hand experience on this subject. People could really learn quite a bit from your insight.
