Resol-You-tions1 of 11
It's just about 2012 so now's the time to start thinking about the goals you'll want to set for the new year. Here are 10 ways to renew and revamp yourself into the person you've always wanted to be.
Get a New ’Tude2 of 11
As merry as they are, the holidays can also be stressful. If you’re feeling the blues from the hectic season going into 2012, or some other emotion is weighing you down—resentment, anger, anxiety —take the necessary steps to alleviate yourself from it. Your peace of mind will thank you.
Stop Putting Things Off3 of 11
Got a to-do list that extends to Timbuktu? Start slowly, tackling two to three items each day. It may help to reevaluate your priorities and see if there is anything you can simply cross off the list. Above all, try to focus on what makes you happy — and do it!
Try That Hobby4 of 11
Have a hankering for gourmet cooking? Wish you could dance the tango? 2012 is your year, baby. Don’t put off fun activities that you’ve always wanted to try — especially if they’re active hobbies that you literally won’t be able to do forever. Now’s the time!
Create Some Space5 of 11
In 2012, make yourself a priority. One way to ensure you’ll dedicate some time to yourself is to create a “you” place in your home. Whether it’s a favorite chair with your book on the table beside it, or a desk that you can re-oganize into a you-space in a couple hours, be sure you have a designated place to go to recharge.
Try a New Look6 of 11
Always wanted to dye your hair red? Try the latest spring trend? Do it already! Hey, if you crash and burn with your newfound look, you can always change it back.
Check Your Diet7 of 11
Some of us are addicted to candy. Others' vices to fall into the saltier realm. No matter what your eating habits are, take a tip from expert Geneen Roth, who advises in her book Women, Food and God to really be aware of what you put into your body and how it makes you feel. If those M&Ms make your heart sing, go for it, but if they just make you feel guilty, they really aren’t worth it.
Make a Big Change8 of 11
Are you stuck in a dead-end job? Hate where you live? Sick of your lack of self-confidence? Big changes yield big results so stop complaining and take action!
Refresh Your Love Life9 of 11
In the midst of holiday craziness, your romantic life may have fallen by the wayside. If you’re single, reevaluate what you’re looking for in a guy and take the steps to put yourself out there. Coupled? Make date night next month extra special so you can both recover from the stress of the holiday season.
Do Better10 of 11
If you’ve been a fair-weather friend or MIA as far as your family is concerned, make a commitment to just doing better. Even a short weekly e-mail can help repair a weakened relationship.
Do Unto Others11 of 11
Rumor has it that doing good deeds makes you feel pretty darn good too. While that shouldn’t be the only reason for helping other people, it is quite a perk. Check out volunteer opportunities in your area for a cause you really care about, whether it’s animal rescue, helping the homeless or supporting women’s and children’s rights.
