Happy New Year.
January is always an exciting time for many people in that they feel it is a time to start fresh. Having the holidays behind us, many people are anxious to get started or get back to healthy eating habits, exercise and routine.
Instead of establishing New Year's Resolutions, I prefer to call them New Year's Intentions. Setting intentions is an important activity. I believe we each play a major role in creating our own reality. Be specific with intentions and write them down in a journal. Keep your journal in a place that is accessible, so that you may review as the year goes on. Some people prefer to divide their intentions into categories, for example, personal, work, financial, relationships, etc.
What do you intend to create for yourself in 2009? Have fun and start the year with purpose.
