Dear Friends,

With the New Year approaching, you have likely been thinking about grand (and dare I say unachievable!) goals. You insist that losing 40 pounds will be the perfect resolution. 

You have just fallen into the New Year’s resolution trap.

You make some giant goal and fail to keep it because it is unrealistic. You’re not alone; by February, 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned. Why? Because people make big, unachievable goals that they can’t possibly live up to, rather than taking small steps to change their lifestyles. If instead of lose 40 pounds, your goal was to eat desserts only on weekends and hit the gym three days a week, you could stick to it.

Below are some sample goals for each life slice — all are tangible and achievable. 

Sending you big love and health in 2018!

  • Have family dinner at least four nights a week.
  • Plan a family trip.
