How Self Storage Can Help You Accomplish Your New Year’s Resolutions

According to Forbes 80% of New Year’s Resolutions are broken by the beginning of February. One of the reasons this figure is so high, is because we have not designed our environments to align with the things we wish to accomplish.

James Clear, author of the number one New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits, states, “the physical environment plays an important role in prompting your habits…environment is the invisible hand that shapes human behaviour…change your environment and you can often change your habits”.

Utilizing self storage to declutter and organise your home can help to keep your resolutions on track.

Get in Shape!

A popular New Year’s Resolution is to exercise more, lose weight and be healthier. With cold dark mornings and evenings, making your way to the gym can be off putting enough to stop your healthy habits before they start!

Why not clear out your spare room, garage or make space in larger living areas to accommodate some exercise equipment?

Boylin’s Self Store has facilities located throughout Yorkshire, providing you additional space for a rowing machine, weights, or a yoga mat, so you can begin your day with a workout in the comfort of your own home.

Psychologists recommend setting, “implementation intentions” to help cement new habits, stating what you will do, where you will do it, and when, e.g., I will ride my exercise bike, for 20 mins, on Monday morning in my newly cleared space!


With the raising cost of living, many people are looking for smaller spaces to heat and maintain in 2023.

If this is on your New Year to do list, Boylin’s Self Store can help by providing safe and secure storage of your large, valuable, and sentimental items.

Start decluttering your home by boxing up items you do not wish to part with, but rarely use. 

Our spacious containers are a flexible option during house move transition, for a more stress-free moving experience.

Redecorating and Renovation

If you have decided to stay where you are, your resolution may be to tackle DIY jobs around the house.

Using Boylin’s Self Storage can make home improvements quicker, easier, and potentially safer.

A clutter free environment can prevent trips, falls, and back strain when trying to work around objects, as well as preventing your possessions from becoming damaged by paint etc.

Storing items during a home makeover ensures furniture and belongings that are usually housed in the renovation room do not become displaced into other areas of your home, helping your living spaces to remain as calm and unaffected as possible.
