Let Office 365 Keep You On Track This Year!

The New Year allows everyone to start fresh...New Year's resolutions are on everyone's mind but without a little help, some of us will fall short before the end of the year. Office 365 Home Premium can help!

I came across the top resolutions from and found that Office can be the perfect tool to assist you with your resolutions, whether you want to get organized, get into shape or just stay on track this year. 

Lose weight: This is widely accepted as the most popular resolution, and one that is quickly dropped a few weeks into January. But it doesn't have to be that way this year ~ fitness experts have long pointed to tracking as the best way to maintain this goal, and Office has several ways to help. Whether you want to track your food, or your workouts, Office can be your best fitness buddy. As the pounds come off you can also manage your weight loss using Excel. Plus, by saving your workout plans in the cloud with SkyDrive, you can access them from your tablet, home PC, or even from the gym on your phone so you can keep track from virtually anywhere. Another great Microsoft tool is the Bing Health & Fitness app. It has tons of great content that spans health, nutrition and fitness, with articles, exercise videos, reference libraries and personal wellness trackers and tools (including nutrition information and suggested workouts).

Manage stress: The holidays can be an overwhelming time, which is why a lot of people want to better cope with stress. One way to keep it in check is to keep to-do-lists and manage tasks in a more organized way. If you're planning a house project or a wedding OneNote can help you remember everything. Even if it's the day-to-day-to-dos that are keeping you up at night, OneNote is the perfect tool. In addition to being part of Office 365, it also comes as a free app for Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad and Android so you can add and check off items no matter where you are.

Manage debt: Planning a budget is easy with Excel and, with mobile apps and Office Web Apps, you can check and update your spreadsheets at home, at work and on the go. Because Office Web Apps now support co-authoring you and your spouse can edit and keep track of budgets in real time (even if you're both accessing the document at the same time)!

Get a better job: If 2014 is the year for a career change, Office can help. Whether you want a creative or formal resume, we have lots of options to get you started. In addition, as we've mentioned before, Office is a top desired proficiency for the current workplace and now is a great time to brush up on your skills with Office 365. 

Take a Trip: If your big wish for 2014 is to get out of town, it's time to start planning! From hotels to flight details to top attractions, there's a lot to keep track of when planning your dream vacation. This OneNote travel notebook is a great tool ~ it even includes a built in expense tracker and remember lists for when  you're on your adventure.

If you aren't already using Office 365, there's no better time than the present! Tell us how you plan to use Office to keep track of your New Year's resolution by tweeting @Office and using hashtag #OfficeResolution
