If you’re anything like me [or the person I used to be], you’ve already started, and regretfully stopped whatever New Years Resolution you THOUGHT you set your mind to this year. You’re not the only one who is, well…let’s face it, human!

For years I didn’t even bother with New Years Resolutions. I always felt defeated at the top of the new year. After years of failed resolution attempts I decided not to make any new resolutions January 1st . I took a stab at tackling my old, uncompleted resolutions, but that didn’t yield much either. 

There’s no ONE way to get and keep your life these days, but committing to your own self is always a good place to start. Besides, New Years Resolutions are no more than a commercial trap to get you to spend more money immediately after spending way too much from the holiday season.

Big business: YOU PLAY TOO MUCH!

Here’s a list of Top 10 New Year Resolutions for 2014:

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Getting Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoying Life to the Fullest
  5. Staying Fit and Healthy
  6. Learning Something Exciting
  7. Quit Smoking
  8. Helping Others in Their Dreams
  9. Fall In Love
  10. Spending More Time With Family

From the 45% of people who do make New Years Resolutions, a whopping 24% never succeed AND fail in completing their resolutions. Crazy isn’t it?

I’m not saying that you shouldn’t push to better your life, I am saying work on yourself all year around. Cramming major lifestyle changes into one month of the year (face it you know you’re apart of that 24% just like me) is a lot of pressure. Too much pressure.

Take this list, peruse and hopefully a few headlines will strike some chords with you. Identify what themes are speaking to you, contemplate it and slowly start implementing some change into your lifestyle. 

I mean, let’s be real, you’re probably NOT going to lose 50 lbs this month and you KNOW that paleo diet you’ve been on is absolutely wrecking your mental. Let’s not even get on that new Brazilian booty that you’ve been talking about. Girl, KNOCK IT OFF!

So what do you say to kicking the DOG MESS [figure of speech – back up PETA] out of 2015?!?!?

What lifestyle changes are you working on this year? Me? Ohhh I’m trying to curb bread. Yes, I’m a “yeast fiend”…
