I see it so often every year people do over the top New Year’s Resolutions and of course within a month they are back to normal. I love the idea and I am sure there is people that can make a major change from their New Year’s Resolutions but the truth is most won’t and these people are wasting a once in a year motivator to better them selves and setting themselves up for failure.
I suggest keeping your New Year’s Resolutions simple this year, rather than trying to quit smoking or losing 40 pounds try to keep your closet organized or start a new hobby or class.
By doing a resolution that is not too hard you are more likely to stick to it “obviously” but also by accomplishing this more obtainable goal now you are bettering yourself, building more strength, and finding the winning side of you so later you can fight the big things down the road.
I can assure you quieting smoking or drinking or gambling, or trying to lose weight needs more then the New Year, it needs strength, confidence, a clear mind, and a smart path to completion. Just some food for thought lol.
Good luck to you in 2012!
I hope 2012 is your best year yet and as my favorite Japanese proverb say’s; bettering yourself is a daily process and it only gets easier as you know what your future wants.
Thanks for reading my blog in 2011 and I look forwarding to hearing from you in 2012.
Here are some easy fun New Year’s Resolutions that you can do without too much stress:
1. Start walking, I mean to the store for food to the diner to read the paper, to the park with your children or dog. I mean a set system that you follow every week. Like once a week you will walk for at least 30 minutes.
2. Learn an instrument, but not guitar or something hard. Get a recorder or a bongo drum or something you can learn easily and have fun with. Then later you can work into harder instruments.
3. Eat a better breakfast, rather say I’m going to lose weight or get fit start with one meal and better it each day. Oatmeal for breakfast is the single best thing you can do for your long term health.
4. Start writing a story or filming, we all have a imagination that wants to get out.
5. Stretch or Yoga, this is so important for more energy, better blood flow, and just better movement.
