This is the time of year when everyone is making resolutions.
I can tell you from experience that most of them will not be kept. In fact, over my lifetime, I have not been able to keep many of mine. But, why is that?
For me, it was because I took on too much. My intentions were good but my goals overwhelmed me and consequently, I gave up.
This year, while I still agree that setting resolutions is still a good idea and that all of my resolutions can still be achieved, I am changing the way I approach them.
This year, I am making my changes in small steps--one month at a time.
These are my January resolutions:
- Read one book this month
- Write 15 minutes a day
- Complete 30 minutes of exercise each day. Mix it up and have fun (treadmill, neighborhood walk, bike ride, hike or taking a couple of flights of stairs at work instead of the elevator)
Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2013 and success on your resolutions for the coming year!
