I try not to make New Year’s Resolutions. I feel bad enough when I am unable to cross something off of my daily (professional and personal) to-do lists. Announcing and committing to multiple intentions has the potential to cause me anxiety and guilt.
However, something about 2012 is different, and it has me energized.
Two themes have been hovering over me as of late and I am feeling bold enough to declare them as my New Year’s Resolutions. Although I am rejecting my natural tendency to get too specific or overanalyze the goals that have announced their presence in my psyche.
Here are my broad and general resolutions for 2012.
The first involves money… and I want to keep it that simple. 1. Save Money… this could be in any facet; 401K, investing, creating a separate savings account… I just want to start putting a little something-something away for oh you know, everything (house, future baby, retirement- okay, I am NOT analyzing it like that, too overwhelming ). Just keeping it simple, save money.
The second resolution has to do with health. Just me promising myself to make little changes… more yoga, more gym, new doctor (my appointment is January 19th!), more healthy food…. and possibly get a yoga certification?
Yoga is therapeutic for me on numerous levels… Which is why this article I read today did not surprise me http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1891271,00.html (and I will be researching the yoga-therapy training…. hmmmmmm )
See! There I go getting too specific again. It is really simple… 1. Save Money 2. Improve My Health.
… and speaking of yoga, here I am having fun with my new, environmentally friendly, yoga mat (A Christmas present from Mom. ).
