Achieving your New Year’s resolutions through rigor

It’s that time of year when we’ve made “resolutions.” Most often those resolutions are individual habits we’d like to change.  Eating more healthfully, stepping up the physical activity pace, and curbing our spending habits might be examples of such habits we may try to address with resolutions.

New Year’s resolutions are often made and then fall by the wayside fairly quickly, due to our busy lifestyles getting in the way. It just gets hard to meet our ideals versus what is realistic, and we would rather not deal with some of the stresses involved in the follow-through. We begin to put it off.

While resolutions are a result of self-evaluation, I’d like to propose a different approach to setting resolutions. It has to do with living life in a richer way — taking a more holistic look at life — which calls for some assessment of our day-to-day activities.
