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.

Do what you can:
Most of us spend quite a bit of time worrying about things we have absolutely no control over. If we would just focus on the things we do have control over and gave the rest of to God (or whatever you believe in) then I believe we could reduce our daily stress tremendessly. Check out this blog post about the 50 Things You Can Control Right Now from Tiny Buddha
Some of the things I plan to attempt to control:
- How well I prepare
- How many times I smile daily
- How much rest I get a night
- Whether or not I judge people
Spread out your goals:
Sometimes we can be overwhelmed by grandiose goals for a new year. We can get so overwhelmed by everything we plan, need or want to do that it all falls apart. So take this approach and spread out your goals weekly over the entire year. Here’s a list of 52 Weekly Resolutions . Use these, add your own or come up with your own set of 52 goals.
