As the New Year approaches we all make resolutions. I thought I would share mine here with you. Think about the things you want to change in your life. Think of ways to make it better, so that you are more productive, organized and at peace with yourself in the coming year.
Write a letter to yourself that entails all your hopes and dreams for the coming year as if they already happened. Seal the envelope and pack it away with the holiday decorations to be opened next year. If you don’t have decorations to pack, then put it somewhere, where you will remember to find it next year so you can open it up and read it. I hope all you hopes and dreams come true in the following year!
Upon awakening think of ten things that I am grateful for. (see previous post on Living in The Attitude of Gratitude)
Reread Simple Abundance!
Start the day with a deep breathing exercise that lowers blood pressure, meditating on only positive things that I wish to happen to me, my family, my community and the world. Send out positive and loving vibrations. (see previous post on The Importance of Daily Meditation)
Do something kind for someone at least once a day, and at least ten times a week.
Spend one hour each day on house chores so that the weekends are not spent cleaning the house. Multitask the house chores with Cardiovascular so that you are achieving two goals at one time.
Treat every meal like a ritual, being ever present and mindful of what I am eating. Create delightful settings, savor every mouthful, knowing that I shopped locally, organically and avoided processed foods, remembering that my body is a temple and deserves the very best.
Set aside a quiet time everyday. Two private hours where I will avoid, television, phone and internet with the goal of reading 52 books this year, one per week!
Read and write a minimum of 2,000 words a day!
Finish the fourth book in my Electric Series by April 30th!
Drink mainly water, avoiding, caffeine, sugar, and alcoholic beverages.
Make a soothing ritual of going to bed. Sleep 8 hours every night, so that I am rested, revitalized and ready to take on the goals for the next day.
