The New Year is right around the corner. Sure you could resolve to lose a few pounds or be better about saving money, or starting an exercise regime. This year though, why not try something completely different, something out of the ordinary for you. Here are some alternative resolutions:
EXPLORE YOUR SURROUNDINGS. . .
Check out restaurants, parks, museums and other attractions in your area you've never visited.
BRANCH OUT WITH BOOKS . . .
Can't afford a trip to a far off locale? Read a book set in the country of your dreams. Always read the same type of books? Change, be different, if you love romance novels, try a good mystery. If you usually read fiction check out a best selling novel.
BROADEN YOUR PALATE. . .
Get out and sample new unusual cuisines or vow to cook one new recipe each week.
MAKE TIME TO HELP OTHERS. . .
Seasoned volunteers say their work is even more beneficial to them than the recipients of their time and labor.
MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF. . .
Taking time to relax isn't lazy - you're merely recharging ytour battery.
GET IN FRONT OF YOUR FRIENDS. . .
Phones and social networking sites are great for connecting with friends far and wide, but nothing can replace a face to face conversation
GAIN SOME KNOWLEDGE - LEARN SOMETHING NEW. . .
Whether it's a foreign language or dance steps or computer skills, and you'll end the new year mentally richer.
Next week I am going to offer a quiz on Mistletoe. Lets see how much we actually know!!!
