- Make only One Major Resolution-And then..Just Do It! Look at your life. Really come to terms with yourself and what area (s) you need to resolve to change, then set forth to meet your goal. You then will be able to offer the best you to yourself and your family!
- Make a Healthful Resolution– Would it be best for you to loose weight, exercise or perhaps you should truly just make an appointment with your primary care provider to finally have the blood work and physical exam that you have been putting off? Whatever the case may be, prioritize your health and wellness plan for yourself and assist your loved ones in doing so also. Take the time to sit down with a loved one to assess where they are at physically and mentally and check in on how they are doing. Showing empathy and caring about others is a wonderful way to stay happy!
- Make a Plan and Stick to it! – It’s been said that having a plan or goal and working that plan by writing it down can help keep you on track to achieving that goal. You can even amplify this by showing it to others and posting it in a prominent place so that you allow yourself to be held accountable for your actions. If it’s truly what you focus on, you’ll stay on track and keep a positive attitude.
- Partner for Success! Grab a buddy, talk about your Resolutions together and create healthful habits that will last far beyond 2012 together!
- Make a Resolution that will Bless Others, not just yourself! – Don’t focus so much of your time and effort on yourself. By doing so, you will find your level of satisfaction with your life go up and your relationships flourish. When you spend time focusing on your family, loved ones and building relationships, you’ll be sure to have an even more fulfilling year than ever before!
