Health

Once again “losing weight” topped the list for the number one resolution in 2012, and it won’t be a surprise if it takes the number one spot again this year. With so many different weight loss and health options out there, it’s nice to hear what the experts agree on. It’s not always about the extreme changes that make a difference either, sometimes its just changing a few things in your daily activity that make a positive difference.

Fitness

Going out and getting that expensive gym membership only works if you stick with it, and staying motivated is only half the battle. Sometimes it might be easier to break down your “goal” into more manageable portions. Consider making simple changes, or creating a schedule to accomplish the biggie.

Organization

Becoming more organized is a constant thing that many people try to improve on. Like many other resolutions, the hardest part about this theme is not picking something intangible or abstract. Instead of trying to change your whole way of life, try picking a few things at a time to do differently. Breaking it down will be easier and you will see results almost immediately.
