    Here are 25 deliciously cheesy dips to choose from, so that you'll never be dipless again.

    4. Try making your own DIY versions of foods you would normally buy.

    8. Commit to doing yoga at least once a week.

    9. Maybe even try to eat a smoothie for breakfast a couple of times a week, if you're up for it.

    10. Stop buying into every crash diet you read about on the internet.

    This brown butter chocolate chip cookie recipe was part of BuzzFeed Life's Holiday Cookie Swap, and we think it's great. Other people swear by this recipe, which suggests you chill the dough overnight before baking. But don't overthink it. Just go forth and bake ALL THE COOKIES.

    13. Make sure to get plenty of antioxidants.
