New Year, Fresh Start

10 Resolutions for 2020

It’s the start of a new year (and a new decade!) which means many of us are setting resolutions for the months ahead. At The Waycroft, we are excited to embrace all that 2020 has to offer — after all, it’s our opening year! For all our future residents and members of the Ballston community, here are ten resolutions to help get your year off on the right foot.

Start Volunteering

We all lead busy lives, but finding an organization near you and offering up any free time you have in your schedule is a valuable way to give back. Look into after school tutoring programs, blood drives, public library openings, or even helping out at the humane society.

Travel More

Take advantage of every day off and see the world. Looks for deals on last minute getaways and take the PTO you’re given to experience new cultures and broaden your horizons.

Try New Things

The new year is a great time to switch up routines. Try a new restaurant, sign up to be a dog walker, go sky diving!

Drive Less

Opt for public transit over driving your personal vehicle or ditch wheels entirely and walk to your destination. This is an eco-friendly switch and is also beneficial for your health in the years to come.

Prioritize Health

While many people set a goal to lose weight, take this month to be mindful of your diet and exercise choices and strive to be healthier. A healthy lifestyle is not something that happens overnight. Start with small changes for a healthier you.

Take Time to Meditate

In the DMV, everyone is so busy all the time. Take a minute at the beginning or end of your day (or whenever you can steal a moment away) and look inward. You can try an app like Headspace to help you focus and reflect with guided meditation.

Compliment Others

A kind word can go a long way. Set a goal for yourself to compliment at least three people every day. It can be a friend, colleague, or stranger on the street, just say something sweet and genuine.


Improve the feng shui in your home with an interior design makeover in 2020. Move furniture around, try a fun new removable wallpaper, or even just switch up the basic decor for a new feel. If you decide you need a whole new space, consider moving to one of our luxurious one or two bedroom apartments. Contact our leasing office to see what’s available.

Start Saving

Hopefully you’re already making prudent financial choices, but use the new year to start setting aside more money or doing a thorough review of your finances and finding small ways to save. Whether it’s downloading a shopping extension like Honey that finds deals and discounts or opting for a generic product over a brand name, think about the little life edits that can lead to lasting behavior change.

Make The Waycroft Your New Home

We may be a little biased, but moving to The Waycroft’s Ballston apartments is guaranteed to have a positive impact on your year. With incredible amenities, a bustling neighborhood, delicious dining options, and well-equipped apartments, start the year off right in your new home!
