How to Use Online Video To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

new years resolutionsHappy New Year, ladies and gents! 2014 is here at last and people around the world are using the start of a new year as an opportunity to make positive changes and set new goals. That’s right – it’s New Year’s Resolution time! And whether you’ve resolved to exercise more, take up a new hobby, start eating right, or something else, we’re here to help!

Online video can be an awesome way to set your New Year’s resolutions and track your progress throughout the year and Magisto makes creating Movies madly simple. Just shoot some videos or photos related to your resolution, upload them to Magisto using our iOS, Android or Web app, and we’ll create your Movie for you automatically. You can then share it with your friends so they can see you in action as you accomplish your 2014 goals!

Creating Movies around your New Year’s resolutions is great for a couple of reasons:

For starters, it serves as a nice visual way of tracking your goals. This is especially great when it comes to goals that include making physical changes or getting better at a skill. For instance, if you’re trying to lose weight, creating weekly or monthly Movies with photos and videos of yourself will serve as great mile-markers in which you can actually see the difference. If you’re learning a new skill, like drawing or dancing, you’ll be able to see your improvement over the course of the year if you make Movies of yourself practicing this skill. Create an album and add all of your Movies to it – this will serve as a great momento that you can look back on for years to come!

The other great thing about creating Movies of your resolutions and goals is that you can share them with friends and family via email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube and beyond. Sharing goals and progress on social media is a fantastic way to make sure you stick to your resolutions. Not only does letting friends and family know what you have resolved give you more incentive to keep your resolutions, but the positive reenforcement and feedback you’ll get when you share your Movies is instrumental in helping you stick to it and achieve your goals!

So what have you resolved to do in 2014? Will you be using Magisto to help? If so, we’d love to see your Movies! Feel free to share them with us on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.
