Rockin' Resources for Resolutions

I'll be honest, I don't really make New Years Resolutions. There is one thing I try to do at the beginning of each year though: everyone gets a clean slate in my mind. In a way, it's a massive forgive-and-forget cleansing. Instead of holding on to things that people did & said that I took offense to, it's time for me to move on.

So I do recognize that the turn of a calendar can prompt thoughts on life, purpose, goals, and the ever-quickly-passing TIME. Here's a collection of resources I've found lately that can help out some of the most common New Years Resolutions.

Fitness- This website gives great reviews on fitness videos, nutrition (Nosh), & apparel/beauty/travel (Posh). Their philosophy is that fitness doesn't have to be hours on cardio machines at the gym, but instead it should be part of a fun, healthy lifestyle. Plus, they have an awesome tagline- "Keeping a lid on the junk in the trunk."

Finances- None of these are get-rich-quick schemes. Here are a few articles from TheStreet about being wise with money.
Refreshing the Mind- I firmly believe that if more people worked on having fresh, positive minds, the world would be a better place. Let 2011 be the year you forgive someone, stop worrying about everything, get over a grudge, ignore an offense, let it go, or just relax.
  • Clean Your Slate from the Everyday Minimalist
  • Peace from Becoming Minimalist (it's a Christmas post, but applicable year-round)
Getting Things Done- Need some motivation to get projects done? New Nostalgia hosts an Anti-Procrastination link party on Tuesdays. It's a great way to see how others are combating procrastination & ideas for more projects (just in case your to-do wasn't long enough already...)

Quit Smoking- Check out the CDC article.

And read the article on the 10 Commandments for Frugal Living. It's quite good.
