New Year's Resolutions
Do you really need one more person to weigh in on the value of setting goals, how to achieve them, and on and on (and on and on)? I know I don't! But there is one key that most advice-givers forget, and that's the part about having fun! Research shows that potentially healthful lifestyle changes do not actually yield the benefits we're looking for unless we enjoy doing them! So, if you're not having fun (which I define as a pleasurable physiological state of flow), then you might as well sit in front of the TV and eat bonbons! This year, treat yourself to something special: have fun!
