Think of an end-of-the-year resolution as one final opportunity to make good on one or more of your New Year’s Resolutions. Which is a really good thing to do, especially when you consider your primary alternatives: admit defeat, or push off current resolutions to the next New Year cycle.
Either way, this is a great time of year to take stock on where you are in some or all of the key areas of your life, such as:
Did you start off 2014 determined to be a better friend, sibling, son, or daughter? Is a past altercation or misunderstanding keeping your from reconnecting with someone? It’s not too late to reconnect. Pick up the phone, write that note, and don’t let another year go by before reaching out.
Whether you feel like you’ve plateaued in your current job, thinking about switching career paths, or getting the itch to go back to school, take some kind of initiative before the year runs out. Start researching schools, polish up that resume, and make a fool-proof plan you can act on more completely once the holidays are over.
As busy as we all are, it’s way too easy to put health and fitness goals on the back burner, especially during the holidays. But you don’t have to wait until next year to start fresh. Use the rest of this month to set a realistic goal and plan for success. Are you wanting to eat healthier? Replace high-fat, high-calorie and processed foods with healthier, nutrient dense options. Get active, take a brisk walk every other day, or sign up for a springtime 5K (or marathon!) that you can start preparing for now.
Home is where the heart is, but if you’ve not been feeling the “love” lately, take steps to change that. Maybe you’ve always wanted to remodel your kitchen or bathroom, or get new furniture for the family room, or maybe your hot water heater or furnace is living on borrowed time. Instead of being caught by surprise are always complaining that the project just isn’t in the budget, how about creating a separate “home facelift” fund so that when the spirit moves you or necessity comes knocking, you’ve got at least some of the money needed already set aside.
In fact, certain home improvement measures can actually make you money, and Optimum Air can show you how. With a new, high efficiency furnace for example, the amount you save on home heating costs can cover the cost of the new system in just a few years. From then on, you get to pocket the savings.
