Christmas is done and dusted for another year.
I hope Santa was Generous.
Who forgot Batteries?
Now the build up to New Years is gaining momentum, as preparations for parties, feasting and hangovers are on well underway.
One thing which many people do is make a New Years Resolution or Three, a simple promise of something they will or wont do over the coming year.
Studies have shown most of these promises are broken within the month of January and some don’t even make it to the next morning.
The Top New Years Resolutions goes a bit like this:
- Lose Weight/Get Fit/Eat Right
- Manage Debt/Save Money
- Get a Better Job
- Get a Better Education
- Drink Less Alcohol
- Quit Smoking
- Reduce Stress
- Take a Trip
- Volunteer to Help Others
For those of us in the swings of Green Consciousness, the list tends follow like this:
- Go Green
- Enjoy Life
- Get Organized
- Learn a Language
- Spend Time with Family
- Improve Community
- Learn Something New
Given that most of us break our resolutions, perhaps we should promise what we dont want to do or be. For example:
I promise to eat as much processed, fatty, unhealthy things as I possble can every single day.
I promise to be smoking 3 packets of smokes a day by June.
You get the idea.
So what wil your New Years Resolution be?
Will you promise what you hope to Achieve?
Or will you follow the Anti Resolution Movement?
Have some fun before the real world takes hold on January 2!
