Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a maker of New Year’s resolutions and I’m fully aware that most only last an average of two weeks for those that even bother to do so. But still, there is something intriguing about the idea of recognizing what areas of your life need improvement and taking action to fix them. To me, New Year’s resolutions can happen anytime, not just on the first day of the year. Some random Wednesday in February is a great time to start eating healthier just as the second Saturday in July is the perfect day to begin exercising or playing more with your kids.
Throughout the entire month of January, we’ll be throwing out ideas of how to conquer some common resolutions, all things that are easily maintained well beyond the usual two week threshold. No grand proclamations of “A New You for the New Year”, just some good ideas on how to improve upon what you’ve already got going. If you’re looking for some healthy recipes to add to your menus or exercise plans that we have tried and we know work or just some tips on how to get better organized or spend more time with your kids, it will be right here all month long. Look for posts on eating better, exercising more, spending more quality time with your kids, trying new things, beautifying yourself or your surroundings, getting more “me time” and better ways to get organized. If you have some great ideas for how to help others achieve what they have planned for 2012 too, feel free to share them, we’re always open to suggestions!
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2012!
