5 REAL New Years Resolutions

Every year the same New Years resolutions pop up. Lose weight, save money, get organized, get a job you love that pays a million dollars a year. Every year we make the same resolutions only to break them. It's time to break the cycle and breathe new life into New Years Resolutions. Here's 5 to ponder.

  1. Be grateful - Psychologists are learning that those who are thankful are happier and healthier. So instead of saying you are gonna get a better job or lose 10 pounds, just think about 3 things you are grateful for before going to sleep each night. The rest will fall into place. Want to take it one step further? Quit complaining.
  2. Have way more sex - I don't know how much sex you have now, but could you actually have too much? The benefits according to WebMD are:
    1. Relieves stress
    2. Boosts immunity (been getting colds? better not let your buds know...)
    3. Burns calories
    4. Improves heart rate
    5. Boosts self-esteem
    6. Reduces pain
    7. Reduces prostate cancer risk
    8. Helps you sleep better
  3. Listen to more music - Back in the day (2010) lifemojo did a post on the 10 benefits of listening to music...note: better health, better workouts, better sleep and so forth.
    1. Serves as a pain killer by releasing endorphins
    2. Reduces stress
    3. Cardiovascular health
    4. Stimulate brain cells and help to focus
    5. Boosts exercise performance (try GNR Appetite for Destruction)
    6. Promotes sound sleep
    7. Increases optimism
  4. Sleep well - The Harvard Women's Health watch suggests 6 benefits to getting enough sleep.
    1. Helps learning and memory
    2. Helps maintain a healthy weight
    3. Keeps you from falling asleep at the wheel, at the desk at the kids play
    4. Maintains a better mood
    5. Better cardiovascular health
    6. Fights disease
  5.  Play video games with your kids - The Huffington Post posted an article saying it was cool and that it's a good way to spend time with your kids. So go ahead...Bravo Bang Clear. 
So here is the deal. Feel like you are over weight? Don't join the health club, just be grateful, listen to more music, get it on often, and get sleep. Hate your job? Get it on often, sleep well, be grateful, get your rock on. Family life being problematic? Have more sex, get more sleep, rock out, play video games with the kids, and be grateful. These resolutions solve everything and it helps that they also provide immediate satisfaction!

  1. I've been married a for a few years now and have a couple of kids, but please tell me—what is this word "sex" that you speak of? Judging from your post, it sounds like it could be a very positive thing in my life.

  2. It is a very positive thing and will improve your confidence and reduce stress. So call up the parents, or your neighbors and schedule an over night baby sitting. Then take your spouse for an over night trip somewhere...anywhere. The rest should take care of itself and you'll discover what you have been missing.
