New Year New Resolutions

Lose weight, work out, eat healthy, these are just some of the most popular New Year Resolutions out there. Studies show it takes 21 days of repetition for something to become routine. Now it doesn’t mean that if you fall off the horse after 20 days you’re bound to fail, just get back on the horse again! I’m not a huge resolution person, but I do like to think about ways to make my life better everyday. Make the most of every day. I’ve always been this way, I think it’s the way I was raised. This year I want to be more thankful. I’ve resolved to end my day by recalling five things in every day that I am thankful for. It’s a great way to end the day on a positive note and reflect on what is good in your life. It’s the perfect way to drift off to sleep on a positive note. Even if you felt you just had a rough day, it forces you to look for the good. Bring some things into perspective. If it’s a great day, then it’s easy to recall the best things, in fact there could be more than five things on your list! It’s been a great practice to help me realize all the little things in life I’m so thankful for. The adoring affection I get from my little puppy, the sound of my mother’s voice when I talk to her on the phone, the sun, the rain, the great people I work with. See?.. It’s easy and it’s infectious. Try it. Be thankful.
