So it’s a new year!!! Well we’re almost a whole week into 2012.
There’s just something about January 1st that makes us analyze the past 365 days of our lives. Even those of us who curse resolutions correlate the start of the new year as the start of something new in our lives. You may call these “new starts” goals, aspiratons, life changes, etc…but they are still resolutions. Whether you make make a list, start a blog, or create a vision board…they are still resolutions. And you know what? There is nothing wrong with that. We need to take some time and look back and reflect on what has passed in order to redirect our plan for the future. Without focused goals how will be ever become the people we want to and are destined to be? We wouldn’t!
So in the spirit of starting anew we’re going to share with you some of the best “improve your life” articles, stories and challenges to inspire you to change something big or small this year.
Almost all of us make a goal to lose weight or to become more fit. The problem is sticking with it, well Ramon “The Trainer” has a solution for you.
