I live one day at a time, so I don't do New Year's resolutions. The New Year isn't a big time for me.
I do, however, do Lenten sacrifice and discipline, so that for 6 1/2 weeks I do the things that sound like New Years resolutions. I have support from my religion though, so it makes more sense. And 6 1/2 weeks is enough time to start a new habit or break old ones.
Merry Christmas everyone!!

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
When I first read that question (without knowing there was an article) I said to myself "Easy! Don't make them!"
I don't make New Year's resolutions because they don't work. Even with the best of intentions. That's just my opinion. I DO however make goals that I would like to strive for during the upcoming year. I work on lifestyle changes that will help me accomplish my goals but I mostly just continue to walk down the road to a healthier me. Both physically, emotionally, spiritually and even financially. It all works for the betterment (is that even a word?)of my life.
