Keeping those resolutions

Published:Monday | January 11, 2010 | 12:00 AM

Spend more time with family: Do not wait until it is Christmas to gather with your loved ones, to share special moments and quality time with close family members like grandparents, parents, siblings and others. If you are residing in the same country, there is no real reason why you ought not to spend quality and enough time with them. But, if for some reason you can't physically meet, simple phone calls can mean a lot too.

Take that action now: If there is some thought that you've had spinning in your head - for instance, a business move or furthering your education - now is the time to do it. If you are afraid of the unknown, you will never know what is out there unless you take the step.

To be prepared for this move, surround yourself with positive people and ensure that you have done extensive research and have prepared yourself thoroughly.

Be more patient while driving: Keep in mind that accidents can take lives. Remaining cool under pressure can save your life and that of others.

Eat more vegetables: Two ways to keep this one. Eat them first. It's kind of like getting them out of the way but hey, at least they're eaten. Or use a tasty, but low-calorie dressing to add flavour.

Cut back on spending: With the entire world reeling from the economic crisis, everyone will need to cut back on their spending this year. Try making a budget, and don't forget to actually stick to it.

Be more open-minded: Think outside the box even if it is a simple problem or complex one. This will allow you to keep on track.
