As we welcome the New Year, many people will be making resolutions. From “I am resolving to lose so many pounds” to “I’m resolving to quit smoking” usually being in the top 5, and often being the first to be broken. I would like to change your mind about your resolutions. How many times have you made the same new year’s resolutions only to break them? Why not resolve to change your thinking instead? Decide to do your best to live a healthier life in general, and take a small step every day to make that happen? Replace one unhealthy snack with a healthy one your first week. That’s not hard to do! On your second week try replacing one main course that you eat on a regular basis for something better, or find a healthier way to cook it! Keep doing those things every week. If you are a smoker, cut your smoking down by a few a day, instead of going cold turkey. Every week, keep that pattern up until you can stop. Start walking around your block once, not jogging a mile. Baby steps are better than standing still. And if you falter, just bounce back the next day. All isn’t lost because of a slip-up. You have an entire year ahead of you. By December 31, 2019, you can reach your goal(s). Take life and your resolutions moment-by-moment and day-to-day! May you be blessed abundantly in the New Year.
