Resolution Revolution

4330300441

It’s a new year, and I am trying to start it off with a clean slate:
a clean house, a clean closet (1 down, several more to go) and a clean attitude.

While I believe it’s always time for a fresh start, I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions.

Why do we need to wait until the year begins to commit to a better lifestyle?
Why do we need to put pressure on ourselves to do something, just because the calendar changed?

Statistically speaking, 80% of all resolutions have failed by January 20.

I won’t miss seeing the swarms of people invading the gym tomorrow morning, taking up space, misusing equipment and leaving wet towels on the locker room bench. Only the diehards will still be there at the end of the month, when the rest of us breathe a sigh of relief and take back our turf.

Grocery stores will be fuller, as people vow to eat healthier and lose a few pounds. The crowds will go back to normal when people revert to the convenience of food delivery. The list goes on and on.

This year, let’s resolve not to make resolutions we can’t keep.

Let’s respect our bodies and our minds and treat them the way they deserve to be treated.  The rest will fall into place naturally.

Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous new year, filled with wonderful times.

Now that’s something I can commit to!
