What Are Your New Year Resolutions???

I just started thinking about what changes I'd like to make and most of them are the same old thing.

Eat healthier
Lose a little weight

Anyone have something more interesting on their list?

I'm not a big believer in New Year's resolutions. If it's not a change I'm prepared to make right now chances are it won't stick any better in a week. I tend to add things to my life/health plan as they become attainable goals. I push myself, yes, but I don't think (for me) a specific start date would be anything other than an excuse to cram in all the negative behavior I could before that day!

I love the new year as a time when I actually sit down and consciously think about what it is I want to achieve in the coming year. I actually sat down on Christmas day and started thinking about my resolutions for the year and writing some thoughts down. I've decided this year to spend a little time each day leading up to new years day to clarify what are some important things for me and what I want to achieve.

I write goals for different parts of my life - physical health, mental health (like spending time on me, walking etc), work and career, family, relationship with my husband, finances...a number of areas like that. Under each area I initially write down some thoughts and then shape them into goals for the year. The other thing I do is think about my vision for my life - when I'm 80, what is it that I want to look back and see, as I find it helps me to get things into perspective.

So, maybe once I've actually written out more of my goals I can come back in here and be a bit more specific.

I have a few goals in mind, however I also usually make a list that i still have yet to do. A few thoughts though are : 1) simplify -- lose some clutter in different aspects of life 2) strengthen and develop good diet and working out regime 3) go somewhere i have never gone 4) invest 5) be more productive, usefully productive, not just busy :)- this one's killer for me. that's it for now

Lose weight and exercise more--IMAGINE THAT!!
I too want to devote more time to prayer and meditation!
I believe that one day a year is not the time to make resolutions though. What about finding something to change or make better in your life once a month.

Stay in better touch with friends and family.
Take time for myself - the little things, like keeping my nails looking nice or plucking my eyebrows more regularly.
Read four books.
