New Year…New Me?

With each new day I strive to become a better person than I was the day before. Setting daily goals helps us meet our longer-term goals. Make a decision with each new day to move closer towards a dream!

Let’s take one of the most recognized New Year’s Resolutions…Getting Healthy/Losing Weight. Most people will start out strong, making daily trips to the gym, cutting carbs, or even choosing “diets” that are harmful to their bodies. Instead of going all in, set daily or weekly goals for yourself. If you choose a salad over that juicy cheeseburger you have been eating for lunch, you have made a step towards your goal. Too often people will set goals that are far from realistic with the resources they have. After a period of time setting too high of an expectation for themselves they “fail” and get discouraged allowing their resolution to go as quick as it started.

Now set down that bowl of ice cream and take a walk around the block instead…you will thank yourself later. While you are at it, think about the next goal you wish to achieve and what small step you can make towards achieving it!  New Day…New Me!
