Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.
Making resolutions is a purification of self-assessment. It’s a time for self honesty and humility.
Resolution one: Be happy.
I can’t say this is true for everyone, but my experience has shown me that unhappiness comes from a daily downbeat of weakness, lack of trust, lack of belief, blaming others for our own mistakes and lack of simply enjoying daily life.
Resolution two: Learn from life.
Identify activities that create positive feelings, such as walking, painting, looking at photo albums or dancing. Whatever creates good feelings in your head, write them down and make a promise to yourself to integrate them into your daily life.
Resolution three: Set healthy goals.
According to the International Food Information Council, most people believe they know what they need to do to be healthier. Plan your decisions. Eating less than you burn equals maintaining or losing weight. Decrease your portions. Serve smaller portions. Improve your exercise habits. Don’t give up.
Expect to be successful with your changes but don’t think that your weight will change right away. A positive attitude to a healthful lifestyle will set you up for success.
