We’re 2 weeks into the new year, it’s a good time to assess how you are doing on those goals you’ve set to try harder, do better, be more this year. The problem with resolutions is we often aim for things that we don’t actually have any motivation or drive to stick to. A resolution like, “I’m going to go to the gym every day this year,” when you haven’t been to the gym in years and years is highly unlikely to be successful. But there are resolutions and goals that you can be successful at, they just have to have a passion behind them. Today, we’re going to share with you new year’s resolutions that you’ll actually have a desire to achieve!

6 New Year’s Resolutions You Can Actually Achieve

Don’t just add “read more” to your resolutions this year, make it happen with audiobooks! We love audiobooks around here because they give us the flexibility to multitask! Folding laundry, running errands, cooking dinner – listen to a book! The new year brings lots of new titles from Penguin Random House Audiobooks to enjoy! Topping my list for the new year includes two new books by Marie Lu (author of the Legend trilogy) Batman: Nightwalker which could be a fun title to listen to with your tweens and Warcross that immerses the reader into a virtual universe following an online bounty-hunter that gets thrust into a virtual tournament. I’m also really excited for the new title, Meet Cute, a series of short stories written by popular YA authors all about chance meetings that turn into romance! I may even have a little business listening on my plate with Thank You for Arguing. Browse all the new audiobook titles, and other titles still lingering on your to-read list, at penguinrandomhouseaudio.com. #PRHpartner

We do a lot to ensure our children are safe, protected, and cared for – but there is a danger you may not have realized in something as common as headphones. This resolution can help your kids (and help you get some extra “quiet time”) with JuniorJams headphones that are designed for kids. They have a volume-limiting technology with an 85dB limit that is considered a hearing-safe level for protecting kids eardrums. That means, your kids will be able to crank up their headphones as high as possible, and still be safe from irreversible damage. JuniorJams, by Puro Sound Labs, received the 2017 award from TheWireCutter.com as the Best Kids Headphones! One feature we really love is the headphone’s bluetooth capability that keeps up with current technologies of our digital world.
