Happy New Year!
Each January we optimistically set goals or resolutions for the new year. The most common resolutions include saving more money, exercise more or losing weight. However, according to a US News survey, 80% of new year resolutions fail by the second week of February.
So, what could you do instead of making New Year's resolutions? Try making a change in your daily routine to develop an attitude of kindness.
• Just one small change like greeting everyone you meet by saying good morning with a pleasant smile can lift the spirits of everyone around you.
• Greet the new year with a positive attitude.
• Be more grateful and take time to count your blessings.
Remember that change takes time and patience. Research shows it takes about 66 days to develop a new habit. So to stay motivated, remember to celebrate even the smallest positive changes.
