9 Shows To Binge-Watch In The New Year That'll Inspire You To Keep Your Resolutions

It's a new year, which means it’s the perfect time to turn on the TV and watch a whole host of new shows. I don't know about you, but I don't plan to do much on New Year's Day besides lay on the couch and binge watch some quality programming. And while I wait through those Netflix pauses between episodes, I'll ruminate on my New Year's Resolutions. That's what New Year's Day is for, after all: TV and resolutions.

So why not combine the two? If you're looking for the best shows to stream in the new year, consider your new year's resolutions as inspiration for picking which shows you're going to binge-watch. Whether it's a new series or an old favorite, there is bound to be a television hit that at least somewhat relates to your resolution, which means you're at least sort of starting to work on it the first day of the year. Even if all that means is watching hours of TV. While you sit on the couch recovering from your New Year's Eve celebrations and enjoying the national holiday (read: day off from work), you can at least get excited about working toward your goals with these nine binge-worthy TV shows.

If You Resolved To Work Out More...

...stream The Flash. If watching a superhero sprint around and save the world doesn't inspire you to get running, nothing will.

If You Resolved To Get Organized...

...stream Friends. Monica is the perfect role model for living a clean, organized lifestyle. Plus what better way to ring in the New Year than with your favorite fictional friends?

If You Resolved To Be More Optimistic...

...stream Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt. Ellie Kemper's positive attitude is contagious, and you'll be laughing so hard it'll be difficult not to feel great after binging this show. And there's only one season, so it's an easy one-day commitment.

If You Resolved To Learn A New Skill...

...stream Nashville. Learning a musical talent, like how to play the guitar, piano, or sing is an admirable goal for 2016. Watch Rayna, Juliette, Deacon, and the gang rock the country music scene, then learn how to strum all the awesome original tunes from the show.

If You Resolved To Be Happier At Work...

...stream The Office. Even though their actual jobs couldn't be less exciting, Dunder Mifflin employees know how to have fun at work and, most importantly, connect with their coworkers — making them not just colleagues, but the best of friends, too.

If You Resolved To Spend More Time With Your Family...

...stream Full House. Not only will you love the throwback to the Tanner's crazy family dynamic, it'll also get you pumped to watch Fuller House when it comes to Netflix in February.

If You Resolved To Find Love...

...stream How I Met Your Mother. There's no clear, easy route to finding The One, and Ted Mosby is a good example of the crazy turns life can take before you find your greatest love. And Lily and Marshall totally give us the #relationshipgoals we're all striving to achieve.

Available on Netflix

If You Resolved To Be Happier Being Single...

...stream Sex And The City. Sure, these ladies spend a lot of time thinking about the men in their lives, but at the end of the day, the message of the series is that the most important relationship you have is the one you have with yourself, and that maybe your friends are your true soulmates. If that doesn't make you feel great about being single (and not dealing with all the dating drama they face, like cheaters, erectile dysfunction and Post-It note break ups), then no show will!

Available on Amazon Prime

If You Resolved To Be Healthier...

...stream Grey's Anatomy. When you see what happens when you don't take care of yourself — i.e., a hospital visit — you'll definitely feel compelled to start leading a healthier lifestyle.
