Are You Ready For The New Year?

At the end of the year is a commune topic among people. Whether you're on the bus at school, shopping, working, on the phone.
But, why people wait for a new year like a magical solution for they're problem, money weight loss, work, relationships, etc.

Make Your own Resolution

How about focusing in the way we think can really impact the way thing unfold in our lives... better than ever, lose weight and fit in our favorite cloths or become the most successful business man or woman or have an amazing relationship blossom.

Few Tips I found that may help you get stated on the right way

· Step 1

Read the government's list of 13 resolutions. Some of them are the old standbys: Lose weight; get fit; quit smoking; drink less; get out of debt. Each has a list of resources. Choose one. Focus on it. Get all the help you can, from medical aids and books to therapy and personal coaches.

· Step 2

Reduce personal stress by looking forward. Plan a trip to somewhere you've always wanted to see. Save up for it. Research the sites to visit and plan what you will do. You will smile with anticipation, a health boost.

· Step 3

Resolve to wake up with a smile. Think of something you're happy about before you open your eyes and share your smile with others for the rest of the day.

Help Others

· Step 1

Resolve to help others by volunteering. "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' " said the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Volunteer your time and meet others who have the same goals and interests that you do.

· Step 2

Find suggestions for volunteer opportunities on the government website, ask friends, look in the papers, on community bulletin boards and inquire at churches and senior centers. Enjoy a side benefit: Philanthropy reduces stress by focusing on others.

· Step 3

Go green and resolve to reduce waste by recycling, using less packaging and buying fresh from local farmers and markets. You'll be healthier and kinder to the planet.

New Directions

· Step 1

Dream about where you want to be in five years. Review what things you need to get there and make one of them your resolution.

· Step 2

Learn a new skill, get a degree, change jobs, move to a better location. Each time you complete a goal, move to the next one.

· Step 3

Include relationships in your resolutions. Whether with soulmates or co-workers, resolving to be more responsive and sensitive will improve everyone's new year.

So, what happened with people in the are of staying healthy on Holidays, Christmas and New Year?
Is Media taking place again on people's mind and dictate what to do, what to eat or wear? My hart goes to the people sick in the hospitals, cause wheter is Monday or Sunday, new years or any holiday they're bodies need nutrition, they need care.

Why do we need to stay in a medical condition to look at how much we should eat or drink and who that can affect our body in a big way?

Well let's get in to the holidays spirit and enjoy them in the smart way!

This is what I gather from the basics of stay healthy always.

1- Avoid choosing a resolution that you've been unsuccessful at achieving year after year. This will only set you up for failure, frustration and disappointment. If you are still tempted to make a promise that you've made before, then try altering it. For example, instead of stating that you are going to lose 30 pounds, try promising to eat healthier and increase your weekly exercise.

2- Make contingency plans: don't assume sticking to your plan will be smooth sailing. Plan on hitting bumps along the resolution road and be prepared with specific ways to overcome them. What will keep you from skipping your workout or stop you from having a cigarette? This may mean seeking help from family or a professional, writing in a journal, etc.


"I would like to stop worrying so much because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. And to stop biting my nails!"

"To give up meat."

"It's always the same: to work out more and eat healthier. I'm trying to go organic, eat more raw."

"All my focus is on my son. Every day, being a better mom and learning with him. It's an incredible experience."

"To stop eating pizza every day. I think my wife [Heidi Montag's] resolution will make that happen. She says she's going to cook."

3- Give it time: It takes about 21 days to create a habit and six months for it to actually become a part of your daily life.

4 Reward yourself with each milestone. If you've stuck with your resolution for 2 months, treat yourself to something special. But, be careful of your reward type. If you've lost 5 pounds, don't give yourself a piece of cake as a reward. Instead, treat yourself to something non-food related, like a professional massage.

Diets Don't Work

Diets Don't Work - Never go on a diet! Statistics show that going on and off diets will actually increase your chance of permanent weight gain. Skipping meals is a common mistake that dieters make. While this will lead to a lower calorie intake, it will also trigger your body to slow down your metabolism in order to conserve energy, thus causing you to burn fewer calories.

In this Holidays what are you going to do?


1) Choose fruit (1 piece with small hand full of nuts) in place of sweets and processed foods.

2) Keep the sweets out of the house. gingerbread house... Goodbye Sugar Cravings!

This is really the #1 diet secret - if its not in your house, you simply can’t eat it. Do your best to keep the junk out. Also, do NOT live in a Gingerbread house.

3) Put in a physical routines……to replace sweets binging (i.e. go for a walk instead, sign up for "get me in shape now boot camp"

4) Drink 1 full glass of H2O when you wake up and before any meal.

Stay Healthy,
