Sticking with it

In the spirit of the latest “fun” dates craze I see mentioned here and there (10/11/12, 12/12/12, 12/21/12) I wanted to be sure to point out today’s date as the first “fun” date for 2013 as 1/3/13. The little things!

Today may also be the first day the new year feels a little more settled in. January is a natural time to slow down and consider where we’ve been and where we’re going. The cacophony of the holidays has quieted and there is room to take a deep breath. Resolutions get made, goals are set and action plans set into motion.

We all know the hard part is not making the resolutions or even setting the goals, although that does trip up the best of us. The real challenge is maintaining. Whether your resolutions include healthier eating, exercising more, getting your home organized, or to stop procrastinating I’ll be sharing strategies throughout January and the rest of the year that will help with the hard part. Sticking with it.
