This year, be structured enough for success and achievement, and flexible enough for creativity and fun! ~ Taylor Duval
Happy New Year, everyone!
It doesn’t matter if you stayed up to watch the ball drop in Times Square, or the Peach Drop in Atlanta – or simply watched the time on your digital clock change from 11:59 to 12:00… or if you went to bed at your regular time and woke up to the 70-degree weather that greeted us on Saturday morning; a new year fills us with feelings of hope, as we make plans for how we’re going to spend the next 365 days.
Making New Year’s resolutions has been a tradition for as far back as any of us can remember. Popular resolutions include losing weight, going to the gym, drinking more water, quitting smoking, getting more sleep, saving money, spending time with family/friends, getting organized, taking up a hobby, and learning something new.
The thing about resolutions is that we set the bar really high, and often become discouraged, either changing our focus or abandoning the resolution entirely before we make much progress at all. Research reveals that nearly 25 percent of people abandon their resolutions after just one week, and fewer than 50% of resolution-setters are still on track halfway through the year.
