The Metamorphosis of New Year’s Resolutions

The minute New Year’s Eve hits everyone begins thinking of the resolutions they better make for the new year.  And how many of those resolutions come to fruition?  Why is it that after a few weeks or a few months, those same resolutions drop by the wayside, to be picked up ONCE AGAIN next New Year’s Eve?

My opinion is that people make it too hard on themselves.  Stick to a simple one resolution, maybe a couple, and don’t overwhelm yourself with more.  You’re just setting yourself up for failure.

My New Year’s resolution is to think more positively and to exchange my negative thoughts for positive ones.  That’s it.  No “list” of resolutions to overwhelm me, making me run screaming through the house after trying to fulfill all of them.





MANY people resolve to exercise more in 2012.

I’ve been riding my real bicycle or my stationary bike for almost three years now.  It has become a habit that I can’t imagine breaking.  It’s not a part of my resolutions for 2012 because it’s a part of my daily life.  That’s the most important part of New Year’s resolutions.  Make them a part of your life.  Don’t overdo it.  If you miss exercising for a day or two or a week or even a month, get back on the horse, so to speak, and start again.

What simple exercise do you enjoy doing that you could incorporate into your life which, come December 31, 2012, you won’t have to add AGAIN into your New Year’s Eve thoughts for 2013?
