As this year winds down, another one is ready to begin. Consider this a great opportunity to start anew. The end of one thing gives birth to the beginning of something else. The New Year is an ideal mark to put the past behind and move forward in a different way. A better way. A wiser way. Take this opportunity to make your new year’s resolutions.

New Year’s resolution making has been going on for thousands of years based on different religious and social practices. A New Year’s resolution is basically a promise to be better. A promise to yourself to do something good or stop doing something bad. A commitment to be a better person. The birth of a new you!

Take the time now to make your promise and stay committed!

Stay committed by:

  1. Being accountable for your changes
  2. Register for classes
  3. Start a buddy system
  4. Reassess your resolution each week and each month and readjust if necessary
  5. Write your resolutions down so that you can read them often. Re-adjust as needed to make your promise attainable.
  6. Set small goals first to get the momentum going
  7. Most of all, remember the reason that you made your promise and use this reason as your motivator

Most resolutions are set for improved health. For this reason, there are many healthy offerings for improved health that begin in January.
