How to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions

Achieve your New Year's Resolutions with these helpful tips from Capital Toyota

Every year, about 40% of adults in America set at least one resolution that they hope will change their life in some way. However, after about six months, nearly 60% of those people have already given up. So, how do you achieve your New Year’s resolutions? You follow these four steps.

  1. Focus on actions. Instead of thinking, “I want to lose 20 pounds,” focus on working to be healthier by watching what you eat and planning workouts.
  2. Make realistic goals. While we all have an ideal image of what we would like to be in our minds, it is unrealistic for most people. Set a goal that you can actually reach. So, plan to save $100 a month instead of $500, for example.
  3. Think positively. Have a positive outlook for your goals. In addition, have a plan for certain obstacles. Like, if you are trying to save money, when your friends ask you to go out, invite them to a potluck at your house instead.
  4. Get support. Talk to friends and family about your goals. You might find others with similar resolutions. You can work together to motivate each other and get some accountability.

If your plan is to save money for a new car, we can help you out. Give us a call at Capital Toyota when you are ready, and we can get you a great deal.

New Year Resolutions for Your Car

New Year Resolutions for Your Car

We’re a few weeks away from the New Year, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your resolutions. Instead of focusing on yourself, why not pick a resolution for your car? Check out these helpful New Year resolutions for your car recommended by us here at Capital Toyota.

Be More Efficient

Toyota vehicles may offer exceptional efficiency, but that doesn’t mean you can hammer down the gas pedal without consequence. If you find yourself constantly speeding, odds are you’re getting less-than-average fuel economy.

Aiming to become a more efficient driver will be beneficial for both your car and wallet. All you have to do is slow down and leave yourself more time to get to your destination.

Keep Up With Maintenance

Routine maintenance is a necessity for drivers who want their vehicle to last as long as possible. Oil changes, tire rotations, and frequent inspections can help prevent, and spot, potential problems before they become a drain on your finances.

Consult your owner’s manual, then make a service appointment at your local dealership to get your New Year resolution offer to a good start!

Stop Idling

Idling is a bad habit that can hurt your wallet, vehicle, and the environment. While idling has been the go-to method of warming up your car during winter, that’s no longer the best choice. Instead, driving at a moderate speed will help your vehicle warm up faster.

Stop idling and get on the road! You’ll save yourself time and money in 2018.
