Newsletters are forwarded at the beginning of every month.

Every year renewed by optimism we promise ourselves a new life beginning with resolutions.

Continuing from our previous note, here are more ways to keep your resolutions.

1. Clear away distractions and focus.
Pocket that phone. You have seen it. Friends side by side at dinner neither enjoying their meal nor speaking to each other because they are on their phone talking to someone who is not there!

Focus for a half-hour each week. Is what you are doing moving you towards the people and projects that bring you joy?

Take a few minutes at the beginning or end of each day to refocus.

2. Happiness is now.
Don't look at happiness as something that will come, it is. The people who live the longest and express the most joy focus on finding their happiness in daily life. Take pleasure in the little things, do something fun. Try something new to recharge the synapses.

 

Happy New Year.
